Tualatin is a suburb of Portland, Oregon. If I were in the Northeast I'd talk to the BCM folks. Unfortunately, they're the only dealer still listed on FIM's website, and FIM doesn't give out their e-mail addy on the site. You have to fax them (an international fax, for those of us in the 'States), and they'll e-mail you back their addy. Sorry boys & girls, I'd rather not pay for a fax to find out *if* they can even answer my question.
There's one or two people I can talk to in Portland who *might* have or know someone nearby with the FIM software, but it's pretty long odds.
Anyway, thanks much for the input! I figured that just changing the pipes shouldn't mess with it too badly, especially not for occasional use only. If all else fails... I can cut 'em open and put a larger-diameter perfed core in them.
I'm asking because the guy who currently owns the stock pipes I'm buying expressed concern about the ECU being way too radical to run with stock pipes.
I wouldn't even be asking if I could afford the $600 for DP low-mounts (which include the ecu), but I only need lows for occasional passenger duty, and I can't justify wasting that much money on something that won't get used much. If I start carrying a passenger regularly, I'll be aquiring a more suitable bike (MTS or ST), and the SS will either go back to full-time monoposto, or it'll go down the road.
