Ivan’s tune for stock exhaust

I’m thinking about getting a 2013 n1k. A few questions for all of you in the know. Will the bike benefit with the Ivan’s tune with stock exhaust? Is fuel milage com-probable to a stock bike? I don’t want to change much. Better drivability and better throttle response is all I’m looking for. Thanks:

I have Ivan's flash and I started with stock exhaust first before I bought my Akrapovic Dual System + Akrapovic headers.

Yes, there is a lot of benefit from Ivan. Just put in the form that you have stock exhaust. I recommend you change your air filter with the stock exhaust. Mine ran a little too rich than I would prefer but I used a Daytona filter and it was corrected from there. I used Daytona because I have a whole set of those. I would have bought a BMC filter if I didn't.

I've ran Ivan's with the stock exhaust and with a header and can't report any change in fuel mileage. The right wrist on the other hand can make a huge difference. Full tank..... my worst is high teens and best is just over 50.
Can also report with Ivan's and header I've traveled long distance with a completely stock N1K and we were with a tenth one way or the other most of the time.

I think when you get Ivan’s tune it is already figured in if you add headers, I asked Ivan after he flashed mine if I needed a reflash if I add headers and he said no.

The things he does, in the flash, would make the engine capable of getting better fuel mileiage. If you were stuck on a road where the speed limit was 55, you would see numbers in the 50's, no problem. I've seen 65 on his flash, with my concours 14. But, to do that, you can't do 70mph....50-55 is it.

At higher speeds, we have so much wind resistance to overcome the only way you will change mileiage much is to streamline the bike. If a person did that, 100mpg would be possible, and probably more, but until we do that, were stuck right where we are..

The real reason for the flash is the response, and control.

My 2012 N1k has the tune with stock exhaust.

My fuel efficiency ranges from 34-39 mpg combined highway, urban riding, and spirited canyon riding. On the highway, cruising along at 85-95 will definitely bring it down into the 34 mpg range. Staying around 80 mph brings the efficiency up to 37-39 mpg.

I can do much better than that. But I don't want to ride an N1k like a Scooter. That and I'm not really safe doing 70 mph in our freeways here in Southern California.
