    I'm not expert, but I've always lived by this philosophy when modifying motorcycles: Just an exhaust, especially a slip on, I don't do anything fueling wise. If I do an exhaust AND a freer flowing intake or filter, then I add a fuel controller as well. Am I right in my thinking? Don't know, but I haven't blown up a motorcycle yet haha.

    Current wisdom seems to suggest that anything more 'free flowing' in the air filter department means "lets more dirt into the engine and leads to faster wear".

    ^^^ This is what Honda told me when I ask about doing an aftermarket air filter.... I have a K&N on my jeep and it's a PITA to keep clean!

    Something worth noting on the Dynojet thread is that there was no bhp difference between oem and after-market air filters - a clean fresh oem is good enough it seems !
