Don't bother with a pcv. Get the ecu flashed. Pcvs are a waste of time.

Get your exhaust setup how you want. Fit block off plates and do any airbox mods before you get it dyno'd. I recommend arrow headers as they have the largest bore (that I know of). If you get a single exit arrow pretty well any litre bike tailpipe will fit giving you an amazingly wide choice.

+1 for just flashing or dynoing it. You’ll end up doing it anyways and buying the pcv just means paying twice. Plus, all those plastic connector clips...

Yeah they run a little rough without the tune in them, you’ll feel some extra weirdness. It should smooth out with the tune a little bit although the bike loses a lot of its buzz and gains a bit of a lower frequency shake with the full system. One other thing is you’re risking burning up the valves without the tune and block offs and such. Enjoy the ride brother, we got lucky this weekend in chicago
