Hello all, I just got my first Gixxer from Chicago Crooks oops I mean Chicago Cycle. If I get a bolt on pipe on my 04 gixxer 600 am I going to run into tuning problems? All of my friends either have carb'd yamaha's or don't know what they're talking about. My questions are if I just get a bolt on do I need to get a power commander or won't that change any tuning, and are textile jackets good enough? I want to this one jacket for me and my girl but but the textile version is much cheaper and according to the salesguy I talked to "are just as good as leather." I've been told that just getting a bolt on wouldn't change enough to require a tuning. Any input would be great. Thanx guys.

Textile beats the hell out of nothing, but there really is no substitute for leather.

Either should provide an acceptable level of protection. Go with what you like.
