i have an XL1200R EFI 2008 and i dont have the money for a high flow or remap yet, i get my bike back next week. i cant afford cuz i got in an accident, long story short, the SOB doesnt got insurance, any ways,
whats the worst that could happen and how long would i able to ride without a high flow or a re map done
i have some slip on Drag pipes by cycle shack.
and besides sound difference how will having the baffles in or out of teh pipes affect my bike's engine/ performance without high flow or re map?

thanks

First off...WELCOME TO THE FORUM!

Secondly...sorry about your accident.
Considering yours is an '08, seems you didn't have much time to enjoy your baby before some uninsured fool got the best of you.
Oh well, sorry again.

Now to your questions:
If you have the stock air-cleaner, running without a re-map or fuel management system should be fine with only your slip-ons. Now, if you also upgrade your air-cleaner, a remap or fuel management system is a MUST.

I don't recommend running those slip-ons without baffles if your still running the factory setting on your EFI.
It would be pushing your luck a little beyond the comfort zone IMHO.

For now, I suggest, if you are going to add the new slip-ons, keep the baffles in and enjoy.

If you're going to upgrade the a/c...get your EFI taken care of.
Likewise, if/when you're ready for the EFI (re-map or fuel mgmt system) then do it right and spend the extra few bucks for an a/c upgrade.

Ride safe.
