I also pulled the axles out only to find them dry. Zero grease. Pretty interesting they don't grease these things from the factory. Thanks for all the help.

Does anyone know for sure what the base map in the comp ECU is like compared to the stock ECU? If it is in fact the same, then no there is no benefit to it unless you're going to remap, which you'll need to do if you go with an aftermarket exhaust etc.

Any need to tune it with just the snorkel removed? The bike seems to run a little lean as it is...
I would suggest leave the snorkel in until you can mess with ECU. Snorkel removed with stock set up isn't even noticeable.

The base map in the comp ECU is substantially different from stock ECU. That alone will wake up the bike but definitely remove snorkle and add pipe for best results.
That's what I thought, but wasn't sure. When I bought my bike, the pipe and tuner was on back-order, but I installed the comp ECU anyway, and the bike definitely ran better than bone stock.
