Now or later?

Only 200 miles on the new RX, bad weather until recently..... can I do pipes, tuner and intake now or should I wait for 1K???? Maybe slip ons first..... then full headers, air later?

Currently Bikeless

There's a ton of bike that never turn a mile before leaving the dealer with the stage 1 stuff already done. I wouldn't worry about it.

I think you will be fine. Those motors have already been ran from the factory for a bit for testing. Only thing I would take caution on is not letting it warm up a bit before burning off into the wind.

I would say wait. Reason being...I done full exhaust and a/c with about 800 miles on. I rushed and didn't shop around to see what all was out there, and now have a completely different a/c and pipes. I would say wait just so you see everything, and make sure you get what you want the first time instead of spending twice like I did. I even have a different tuner than what I started with lol. Just do your research and youll be ok.

The dealer was going to put My pipes stage1 kit the day I bought it. But the pipes where given to me by a brother and he did not include the brakets. I had them put on the same time they did the Bars and speakers and 1k service.

If you want to wait to feel the difference do that, but it shouldn't matter.

It don't matter really. Sense you did not do it already , just wait until the 1K. That way you will have some time on the stocker and enjoy the stage 1 more.
