True, how many can use all of the power the stock bike makes? Not many

IF you are saying to decat, then unless you want to go through the irreversible hassle of cutting the box off, then a set of header pipes to decat is the easiest way.
I went that route, not for more power, just because it was easier and reversible.

I'd just like to add... You do not need flash, you do not need decat, you do not need PC5, Get real.
Just ride. If you want a flash, and decat, why stop there and rant about people that get headers. Jeez... 🤣
you "do" lol need a flash. jk. but I wouldn't own my bike without it after owning with it. if I get new GT I am still going to have it refreshed, maybe not fueling if the fueling is good, but that engine braking/fuel cut has to go. and the other benefits

I may not need it but damned if I don’t want it, especially after getting my ass handed to me on a straight and the twisties by a worked Pannigale V2 a week ago. Not only did he show me I didn’t have enough power but also that my suspension and tires suck. Or, maybe he showed me I just need to buy a GSXR also. 😬

As well as my GSXS1OOOF I've got a 650 V-Strom, last week riding through 30km of twisties with 7 mates equally familiar with the road and experience all of them riding sports bikes some with 200+hp,I put about 5 minutes on them. Good indication that power isn't everything

Power isn’t everything but all other things equal it will win. I’ve been on that same road with guys on ZX10’s and R1’s that couldn't keep up with me on the GSXS and had a buddy who couldn’t stay with me on his GSXS while I was on my CB500F. It’s a fun piece of road with little traffic. Should have known better though, skinny dude on a lighter bike.

Probably a gsxr wouldn’t help you either. He was probably a much better rider. Maybe start thinking motorcycles are hotrods on the street. Instead of fantasize of being a motorcycle racer

Had to go dickhead didn’t ya?
He was definitely a better rider and on a better bike but that doesn’t mean I can’t ride or fantasize about being a racer if I want to. You do you. I do me. Been riding for 36 years and am not **** but not the best and don’t claim to be.
