Blue Flame Oval (newbie)

Hi there. I've just bought a 2005 VTR 1000 in very nice condition with just 2000 miles on the clock. I collect it next week.

This is the first non fuel injection bike I've bought, and my previous bikes: sv650, gsxr600 and CB1300s all coped fine when I changed the end cans.

I have ordered a pair of road legal cans from blue flame. I'm not looking for any performance gains as such, I just prefer the look to the stock ones, and I don't plan on taking the bd killers out, or messing with the air box etc.

My question is: will my bike run ok if I leave the db killers in, and everything else standard, or will it need tuning?

Vast majority of road legal cans are specifically designed to require no rejetting or tuning.

I had Blue Flame Evo cans on mine and had it on the dyno too. It was fine.

Yeah, If the cans are U.K. street legal, the jetting should be fine. If you're feeling bold and agressive, you might want to shim the needles and check/reset the throttle position sensor for best throttle response.

You'll probably love the carbs... the fuel delivery on my bike seems very smooth.
