I just installed an Akra slip-on exhaust on my 03 R6. The throttle doesn't seem as responsive as with the stock exhaust. Any suggestions?

The '03 R6 is fuel injected. The ECU should have adjusted fuel delivery for the higher flow rate of the slip-on.

Did you change anything else on the bike other than the slip-on?

At what RPMs and throttle position does it seem less responsive now? I'm guessing the transition between closed throttle, and partial throttle is flatter than it was before. Meaning you crack the throttle open, and there's a pause before you feel power.

If it's really bugging you, look at installing a Power Commander: http://www.powercommander.com/407-411.shtml

exhausts with less backpressure diminish low end torque. You moved your powerband up (if at all)

Welcome to aftermarket exhaust land.
