That about covers it unless you want yo do air box mods, I have and it gives a little bit more up top and is easy to do once the tank is off,but that's really probably not worth doing if I'm honest.

Have I missed something?
No you have not.  I suspect that they will provide the Blanking plug(s).  If you read the small print on all their exhausts they imply you should always run on a dyno with any aftermarket can.  I am not any expert on this, but I would certainly want a Power Commander Fuel controller (loads cheaper than a PC V), but without all the extras you don not need with a PC V).  My advice is to ring Delkavic and perhaps ask to speak to Chris Spooner.  They might also have the Servo Buddy.   My Bike also went to Dynojet UK in Preston where they  did the Map for my bike (that is the graph shown in this thread) and they would put that map for you onto a PCFC or PC V.  Or you go to your local Dynojet dealer and they will download it for you at installation depending on your spanner skills if you plan to fit it yourself.
Good luck

Just spoke to Delvekic and in case anyone is interested they can sell just the de-cat pipe for £99.95 and that a servo buddy is necessary but not included in any of their prices.

@porter, I was informed that the original silencer might require modification to fit with this decat but I can't confirm anything until I've tried it myself.

I've made arrangements to visit their shop and have them fit this decat system to my 2018 model as they want to check for compatibility issues, so hopefully in the next few weeks I should be able to give some more information with dyno read outs from a completely stock bike.

Sounds like the Delvekic header pipes might be different diameter than the oe. I'd not be interested if I couldn't use my remus can or the oe. I'll wait and see the outcome.

I'd be surprised if the headers are much different as Delkevic will have shot themselves in the foot ie can't sell their end cans  to fit Suzuki headers if you see what I mean .

When I delivered my bike up to them last year it went with a Fuel can on same.  After a few weeks I had a call and a request from Delkavic asking to collect the OE exhaust can. (if I still had it the OE exhaust, which I did)  It was then collected and went  off to Delkevic.

 I presume they must have tested it with the stock or why else would they have wanted it.   I would have thought the OE exhaust must surely fit on the decat pipe. I would be more then surprised if it did not.  A call would clarify this I am sure. 

My OE Cat and exhaust are in my garage attic and would volunteer to take some measurements but sadly off to Italy next weekend !! :haha:

I too would think they had made it to take the oem can, as arrow have on their decat pipe,worth a call to check.

Bargain  :fix:  A call to Dynojet uk at Preston (head office) will confirm I suspect the obvious for peace of mind.  You never know they might match the USA price but of course I guess they have to pay the import duty ?  If you are getting a PCFC for a tad over £100 it's a steal :lala:

Brief update.
I am currently sat on Lake Maggorie.  ( not literally) Italy, having ridden around 1000miles since leaving home over a  Week ago.

Ridden few Swiss mountain passes ( Furka, Grimmsel) and been blessed with perfect weather.  :) :) Been out and about as well.

The bike  and the Delkavic has been fine.  My mate is on Triumph Thunderbird 1700.  I leave him behind in the twisties .  He comments that when I open it up he hears the bark of my bike over his exhaust  and engine noise and tells me it sounds great without being offensive.  I do not notice this myself. Guess always the way. It's quite amusing that when parking up on the passes other bikers wonder over and have a look to see what I have got. (mainly Germans on GSers)

Have filled up 5 times best tank was 60mpg and worse was 54.  Think that's pretty respectable.

Heading home after weekend .

Sounds like the perfect trip, yes a call to Dyno jet is probably a good idea, safe ride home.

  I've ordered the Delkevic decat pipe which will utilize the oem headers and fuel end can and will fit so I've been reliably informed .
  As it was such a beautiful day today and I wasn't working I couldn't resist a ride down to camber sands. I had disabled the exhaust butterfly valve and fitted the healtech servo buddy a couple of days ago and was interested to see if that would have much of an effect on its own.
  It was certainly throatier on the ride down but felt largely the same.
  However once on the gloriously deserted twisties around the army range I came up on a chap on a yellow Ducati  with matching leathers and  for educational purposes felt the need to observe his lines. This was when to my delight I discovered you could keep accelerating past  6 k in 3rd and the power didn't sign off as it had before.
  So I'm hoping once the whole jobs done I shall be a very happy chap !
