Default Changing Tri Ovals to V&H - need map?

I picked up a set of Vance & Hines slip-ons for my 2012 Cross Country. The bike previously had the Lloyd's timing wheel (+4, I believe), Tri Oval pipes, Vic performance air filter from the pipe kit and the Victory-supplied computer flash for the Tri Ovals. Everything worked well with that setup for most of the bike's 25,000 miles.

By swapping to the V&H pipes can I leave everything else alone and have a relatively safe/normal setup? Or are the V&H pipes sufficiently different from the Tri Ovals that I need to get a fuel mapper and map it? I'm not looking to squeeze the last drop of power from things, just have a nice touring bike with a good sound.

Thanks,
Rob

I would venture to guess that there might not be that much of a difference to warrant a new map, but the running might not be 100% optimal. Depends if the cost of a remap is worth the amount of optimization to you. I've got maps for OEM mufflers and glass packs, but no tri-ovals or V&H pipes.

I don't even have a PCV or other fuel mapper right now. So I'd have to buy one and then either download the 'average' map from Vic Shop or actually have it dyno tuned. I'd prefer not to spend that much, but I'd also prefer the bike to not burn down. So that's my goal here... :-)

Think you'll be fine. The flash you have only add 2% more timing and fuel. It really didn't do much for you. If you ever want performance go to the dyno guys. There not far from you and you can have it done in a day.

A couple of the guys I've used charge about $250 for a tune/map.

The Tri Ovals sound pretty nice to me when getting on the throttle on the highway but I always wanted more rumble at lower RPMs. My VTX1800C with V&H Big Shots has always been more to my liking. When I first heard a XC with the V&H pipes I liked it. Now that I've lucked out in finding a very good deal on a used set I'm trying them out on the XC.

I don't think I'm going to be parting with them until next spring after I get some time with the V&H pipes to make sure I like them. I know I like the Tri Ovals for the most part, sound and looks, so I could see me switching back if there is something undesirable with the V&H.
