Just my .02 worth... having a '13 796, with 10000 miles on it...
I just recently replaced my chain and sprocket set... I retained the 15T front, and went up on the rear instead. I still have a 14T front new in the package but decided the proper thing to do was to go up on the rear. If your bike is nearing that mileage threshold, you might consider just making that change, instead of the 14T shortcut. I didn't realize it, but my chain was so worn, it was slapping the side of the tire, cutting grooves into the side of the tread. Yes, it was a bit pricey. Yes, I sleep better at night, now.
I suspect the DP race flash retains the O2 sensors, and, assuming you still have it, the exhaust flapper. Aftermarket flashes can (or not) eliminate either or.
