To avoid warranty issues, it has to be done at the dealer with SE parts. Some dealers will sell some aftermarket cans, but that is not the MoCo policy.I’m getting ready to get a 2019 SG. I have never owned a bike before. I want to get a stage done on it. While mechanically inclined. Ie I can put the parts on. Does it need to go to a dealer for any tuning?
At 14 every bike or mini bike was a dirt bike. And beating the baffles out or cutting the pipe off made it faster and we believed it .I used to take my dad's Dream in the soybean field behind the house. As close as I could get to a dirt bike when I was 14.

66-68 somewhere in there, I had just got a 65 Suzuki 80.. I thought I was the schnizzle. 11/12 years old riding on the dirt trails.. Then a guy rode up to me in a new Hodaka.. A 100 I think, it had a tube frame and was just a lean mean machine.First real motorcycles I rode were Bridgestones. Mostly 100's and 175's but occasionally a 350GRT. Pops sold them at the hardware store.
Got to test ride it around the lot if I put it together.

10% in a prefect world. If a better sound is what you want find pipes you like and call it good. After a couple 1,000 miles pipes will pick up a bit more tone.Thanks for the input. I am looking to improve sound. I have heard at best with a full stage one a 10% power gain. I’m just looking for the best route to get that good deep throaty sound with out messing with the cam.
Having never owned a bike before do you really want to sink extra cash into iy, that you will never recover if the bike thing does not work out for you?
if you want it a bit louder but still at a reasonable level Put some SE pipes on it call it done for now. No tuner , do listen to a word the sales person says get you bike and maybe your pipes and ride away. You can always do more latter but undoing it means you lose.
For a first bike a new m8 is going to be plenty fast enough.
