depends what mods you all have done/or are planning on doing....just do a quick search on fuel management or fuel processor and you will find all the info you need.

If you open up the air box you can see gains up to 10hp. With the fuel processor like the fi2000r you will get a lot better throttle response than you have now. I never thought that it would be any real difference but after putting on a new pipe, the fi200R and a set of my covers HOLY :edit:. It is night and day the HP and torque you can feel. I only wish I did it sooner. I love riding the twisties as well. The corner to corner response is worth it.

do you need to do pipes and intakes? the answer is defantly NO you do not need to do these mods or any others. when i do mods to my 9 it is for the looks of my 9 what I want it to lokk like as for proformance I don`t worry about that , for me it how it looks this bike has all the power I want so it is strictly a personal choice in my opinionmake it yours Bro and enjoy the ride!!:bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup:

theoretically no mods are needed to have a nice 9. Most people do the mods just "because". For example, I bought a Hayabusa already the fastest production bike on earth with the most horse power stock from the factory and added a turbo charger. Did I need it NO, did I like it HELL YEAH. :p I used it mostly for cruising on the weekend and transportation to work.

IMHO, the type of riding you do is where you notice it the most. We have a lot of curving and twisting roads here, and powering between turns is one of the fun parts. Just cruising on level roads you seldom have the opportunity to use what the bike already has, let alone more.

If you are happy with the performance of her the way she sits, then leave it alone.
