That would make a little difference . I usually run without the air box for a very short time on clean roads (don't want to pick up road dust/sand) just to check the performance of the air flow through the box/filter .
Stock exhaust then ?

What pipes and air filters are you running ?
Yeah, the bike is pretty much all stock, the only mod I've done is the brake lines and taking out the octopus to run straight fuel lines. So far so good.
