Looking to up the performance of my stock 700! Thinking of a slip on and a programmer. Already have a uni filter. Should I be doing anything else at this time or is this a good start?

I'd love a full system, just thought maybe I'd get a header down the road after the slip on. I can't add a full system or a slip on without the programmer right? You need the programmer to manage the modifications, I think. Not real mechanical but I try!!

Cool thanks for the help! It looks like I can get an FMF slip on and programmer for close to $500. Should help free up some HP!

I agree with everyone. I was actually going to recommend the FMF pipe and their programmer. You can always buy the FMF header down the road. You will be absolutely amazed at the power increase. You cannot jet fuel injected machines, that is the sole purpose of the fuel programmer.

Bying the programmer of FMF, you know that you will have the correct map. To give you an idea of how much more fuel is needed, on my Rhino when i added dual exhaust i had to increase the fuel as much as 25% in certain parts of the rpm range.

Have you guys heard anything bad or good about HMF? Their colored pipes are pretty cool looking!

HMF makes a quality product.

Pyetime, don't take it to a shop... I would be willing to help you out. You're not that far from me.

That would be awesome Red! I blew up my 96 Cr250 after working on it myself because I had the wrong jet in it. Needless to say it makes me a little nervous to mess with that programmmer. Bolt on stuff no problem, electrical, now that scares me!! Thanks again guys!

The beauty of FMF's programmer is that they send it pre-programmed. The only time you have to create your own map is if you change cams or add a higher compression piston.

I blew up a CR500 4 times in 2 months because my "mechanic"(I know now that the term is loosely used)had the wrong jets in it.

Holy Crap!! Now I need to decide which FMF slip on. The 4.1 sounds like its more for the track.Then there's the FMF Power Core IV S/A Silencer and the FMF Q4 S/A Silencer which both come with spark arrestors. Any input guys?

I personally like the PowerCore line, proven as a great pipe over the years.

You can't go wrong with either...

Yeah, it sounds like that would fit my riding style the best. A little louder than stock and the spark arrestor that the 4.1 doesnt have. Nice price also!

The 4.1 is a racing pipe. On closed course races you do not need a spark arrestor.
