No pipe or system NEEDS to be mapped, but they'll always run way better with the mapping. On the 954 it's true that no bolt on gave much and infact some lost h.p, but pretty much any bolt on on the 929 makes h.p. I'd look at Sato if you want the most h.p from it. They have just started doing them for that model now according to their site.
