Really no need at all to use FS with new pipes only.

Did I mention I take every available moment to be a besserwisser? :ithank:

Yes, but it's because of the aftermarket intake not so much because of the pipes. IMHO, a fuel controller on a stock bike would be a good idea.

I was convinced that I needed PC because I installed a set up cobra strippers....

Hey whats going on Fellow mean streakers. New to the forum. I just picked up my 02 mean streak a few days ago. Ive been reading that if you add pipes and/or and intake you have to add FC or you could be doing damage to the bike. My MS currently has Vance and Hines straight shots on it and I would like to add an intake but I dont know If I should get a FC first. what are your thoughts?

Gotchya just breezed through it the first time and I asked my question because it seemed like you guys were saying you dont really need on but it definitely helps. I just want to make sure Im not going to damage my bike without a FC if I have the pipes and intake untill I can save up some pennies for a FC.

If you're doing this in steps, you definitely want a "FC" when you install the intake. Intake without a "FC" is not good. Many people start with pipes. For just pipes you don't really need a "FC". Pipes are a visible, audible, "cool" thing. The "FC" is invisible but makes your bike run better while most Meanstreak pipes don't.
