is it a custom exhaust? if not then you can just get a power commander and upload the exhaust manufacturer's map for your bike.

not custom, I'm just getting an akra or arrow full exhaust. And I'm also getting a PCV.

Is uploading the map good enough? Do I have do a dyno or get a PC Auto tune?

PCV with the correct map uploaded will be enough. manufacturers specifically tune their exhaust for each bike so that you don't have to. dyno tuning it yourself might squeeze an extra horsepower or two but the bike will run just fine without it. what bike is it? because some of the newer bikes don't even need PCVs as the ecu can learn and adjust itself to the exhaust.
