Default Timing wheel without Fuel Controller?

I have a 2011 XC with WD no baffle muscle mufflers and for my next upgrade I was thinking of getting the LLoydz timing wheel. I know the advantages of installing one but I don't yet have the money for a fuel controller. Is it safe to run the timing wheel without having a fuel controller?

yes, when you get a better air filter(lloydz) you will need a tuner

+1 on what dtmmil said. A timing wheel can be done at anytime with any equipment. Go for it, you will love what it does for performance. And you'll love what my laydown license bracket does for the looks of your bike. Yeah, I know--shameless self promotion.

I was told that adding timing wheel with pipes only not a good idea as it could make the bike too lean?

i guess it depends on the pipes, most often timing and pipes your ok, timing pipes and air cleaner you need a tuner

It is my impression from a conversation with Rylan Vos that between timing, intake, & exhaust you can pick any one of the 3 without a fuel controller but any two or more would require a fuel controller to provide satisfactory results. Maybe I understood it wrong...wouldn't be the first time!

a fuel controller on a stock bike would be a good idea
