Just got off the phone with the lads over at MBRP about the availability of the 2016/17 1200 header and can.. So here's the scoop...
They will be coming out sometime in Sept. The trail can will be (at this time) the only muffler offered. Its going to be somewhere between 4 and 6 decibels over the stock muffler.The part # is 130T206. They gave me an interesting fact about the part number. 130 "T" (means Trail Can) "2" (is the approx HP gain) "06" (is how much lighter in lbs it is than the stock muffler)
For the header.. part # 1310600.. Same rules apply. 1310 "6" is the approx HP gain and 00 lbs. is the weight savings.
According to their tech guy.. they tested the header/can combo on a completely stock sled and no ECU flash is required.. I believe that was done with stock clutching etc.. So with that logic.. I'd assume that changing clutching (primary and secondary) and altering the max RPM may throw off the setting a tad..
If I can change those components out, gain 7 or 8 HP with the addition of minimal noise and not melt my sled down, I'm up for that..
Now the question is..... Do I still flash or not... I guess not based on this info........ But does that hold true if I add a PB80 and Cudney kit to my secondary???? hmmmmmmm......
