Exhaust options - is ECU remapping necessary?

I'm waiting to receive my new 2019 VanVan, and have been scouring the internet for exhaust options. I am not finding much info on ECU remapping, or the need for adding a power commander. etc. Are most VanVan owners just adding exhausts or slip ons, and riding it as is?

Any info would be helpful.

Thanks!

Somewhere online I read about an owner who took his bike to some tuning company and if I remember rightly, the ECU is so basic that a remap made no difference....An aftermarket exhaust made it sound faster but in reality it was barely if any better....I think shorter HT lead made the best gain from memory !!

Great news! I will probably go with the black widow header pipe:

And for the muffler, I'm thinking about this:

I'm assuming the 02 sensor will unscrew from the stock exhaust, and fit right into the black widow header. Once I actually get the new bike in my possession, I will start ordering the parts.

You may have to modify to mate the two together as I believe one used a clamp and the other uses two springs to mate together,also,are the connection pipe diameters compatable?

Yes, fortunately the pipe diameters should be compatible. I sent the links to my mechanic (bike builder) and he said no problem. I assume he will be welding the spring tabs on the exhaust pipe.

That does look to be the simplest solution.
