2015+ intake options w/ power commander

swapped out my stock exhaust system with the leovince underbody evo ii. this meant the headers, muffler, along with installing an o2 sensor eliminator. before committing to installing a power commander and getting it tuned by an expert, i figure i would also need to address the stock intake.

forgive my ignorance, but i used to own an EFI triumph thruxton. when i had an installer tune the ECU with power commander, we did all mentioned above, for intake, we removed the air box as well as swapped for k&n pods.

what is the equivalent of things that need to be addressed before i commit to getting my 2017 versys 650 tuned?

You do not need to touch the intake. Leave it alone - modifying the intake you will loose power.

1st thing I would do is install the O2 sensor bung on the headers in the exact same location as the stock headers and run the stock O2 sensor connected.
You can always block off the O2 bung and compare with and without the O2 sensor attached.
You may find that you don't need the PCV - and it did not cost you much to weld the bung on.

Do you mean air filter? If so a BMC or the like would be a fine replacement for stock before tuning. They come pre-oiled, but couldn't hurt to do a fresh light spray with a quality tacker filter oil before install.

BikeMaster air-filter

I just got my BikeMaster filter in the mail this AM. I've had K&N filters on MANY vehicles over the years, so my plan was JUST to use K&N filter cleaner, and filter-oil when I'll have to clean this one (SAME as I did w/ the K&Ns).

Imagine my surprise to read the instructions, under Proper Care and Cleaning:
- Use a soft brush to dislodge...dirt and debris
- Spray BikeMaster air filter cleaner on the filter element
- Clean the element with compressed air.
...DO NOT USE WATER

I took the filter out, and it LOOKS like the K&N filters look - bright red - but it would appear that cleaning THIS one as I did w/ K&N filters is BAD....
