    There are plenty of threads but I guess I am as lazy as you and didnt feel like searching either.

    You don't HAVE TO HAVE a power commander after doing any of these bolt ons. But it is beneficial to do it. You will make more power, but only if you have it tuned. It would be pointless to add on and just leave it set as stock, or even use a generic map. I have used a generic map, and have also just got the bike dyno'd, and there is a world of difference.

    Also, the flappers are for your RAM air. They are supposed to open to allow more air in extra. But in reality you should bypass them and open the air box up to full air flow all the time.

          Not sure. I have the k & n and airbox mod. I'm not sure i would call it a night and day difference.
