Same year as yours, similar changes and found Dave's V2 tune is great

Right this is my exhaust can end.  I am getting 46-48 mpg at the moment.  I have loaded Dave's tune.

Yep, that's the road legal can. The db reducing insert is there and welded in place. Here is a link to a thread about modifying it.

I don't want to pull the cat and the Arrow can may have a removable baffle.  The end of the pipe has a circlip which looks like it's holding everything in.  The can is 'E' marked so guessing it is the road one.  I will load Dave's tune and see what happens.  Hopefully mpg will not get worse and it will feel loads better.

Not sure what you mean by worse.   The better the tune and then performance seems to increase the smiles per miles fun factor. THAT effects the mileage because you like to use the performance.
If your wanting mileage as goal. Then leave bone stock, I don't know of anyone who thinned the mixture for max mileage.

I think the best MPG on my tune was 46, the worst was like 32.  Just depends on the wrist.

How are you finding it?
Following with interest as I have similar spec (read Mivv for Arrow) and the new to me bike came with 20545 loaded.
Was finding it very snatchy from throttle closed to open but that has improved after a 12 minute adaptation. Or is it me thats adapted?
Not sure yet if DeCat has been done. Current MPG unclear as not yet done enough miles and battery out/in has deleted any data i did have.

Sorry to barge in on someone elses post/thread but I have an 08 bike, Arrow Road Can, K&N filter, airbox mod. I would  like to put the best map on for this config as 'Clot'

1) bogs a bit when running at constant revs (I have to do about 20 miles on a M/way with 50MPH restrictions)
2) It's very Sooty (but Sweep is ok...) on the end can
3) MPG seems low.

is there a simple how-to somewhere. everyone I look at seems to be about taking a base mapping and modifying it at ex revs' idle et'c.

thanks in advance.
I never touched it, you can't blame me, it went off when I was cleaning it.

Download the Tune ECu App on your phone and get an OBD cable and see what tune your bike is running. Sounds a bit rich to me. I have an 08 with same changes as you. I run Dave 73 tune and it works great. Loads of info on here about it.

Find Dikman's tune list in the sticky.. For your bike it's the easiest to get what you have vs tune to run.
You want to run the latest stock tune or one that's been tweaked like Dave's. Mine is for a bike with more mod's
