Power Commander 3, Akrapovic slipon, K&N combo

I have a 2006 K1200S. Has anyone had this combination?

I'm in the no K&N filter camp. Passes too much dirt. If your concerned with stock filter prices there are locations that sell the OEM filter under the Mahle name at about half price.

Mount Vernon, WA.
tire guy, I'll mount your tires.

Yes - nearly

I had a Power Commander 3, Staintune pipe and K&N filters on my 2005.
I clean and oil the K&N filters so that they work properly, I love the sound of the open pipe, and I ditched the Power Commander.
Ditching the Power Commander was the best thing ever - it is much better to ride without it. The low rpm torque was great with the PC but everything else was terrible.

Don't have a powercommander, but have a AF-XIED which transforms the bike, and is adjustable to cater for the aftermarket exhaust and/or higher flowing filter.
