    no you will be ok with just a can on and u shouldnt have to do anything else with it. Not really to sure of the pros and cons I like the cans for the sound and found that they livened up the sled a little bit as well. i had an mbrp can on my m7 and loved it nice soundin can that is forsure

    marginal performance gains, if any, depending on brand.

    PRO - weight loss

    CON - Increased Decibals

    The best thing I did to my sled was lose the suitcase aka muffler.

    As stated before.

    If you ride on trails, cans and excesive noise has a bad effect on the life of trail systems. Landowners and others target our sport because of noise and other issues. Noise #1 complaint.

    Put one on my 2010 summit. Agreed gives you a little more power but not much. I did notice a difference. (Might be the same idea as the KLIM and Snown and Mud sticker though). Biggest thing is the weight loss and sound. If you would like a louder beefer sound then the great. I would use caution on the trails though. No you don't need to do anything to the engine with the mbrp can just stick on and ride.

    all great info biggest benefit is the weight loss and the cleaner look on the sled. But yes the noise can get you in trouble on a trail system I myself like it loud thats why i like my twin pipes w/stingers

    Be careful with cans on the newer sleds. Although most manufactuers will show HP gains of 1 to 2 and around 10Lbs weight loss, some of the cans are actually losing power when put on the dyno. That will negate any HP to weight ratio gain.

    I have a can for one of my sleds...strictly for the race track or riding in the middle of butt fug where there is no one around for many a mile. On trail or near people in any possible way and I use stock can.

    My wife told me if I get a can on my new Poo and it is as loud as the old Poo was, she is calling the cops on Me! I live on an acreage and I personally like the sound, however, it is not loved by all of my neighbors or my wife at 2 am!
