My experience has been if you only upgrade the system, you generally won't need a fuel processor. I didn't when I upgraded the exhaust on my 950t. When I went to an open air filter kit, definitely needed the fuel processor.
The biggest restriction on most bikes is the air intake system as come lean from the factory because or EPA regulations. The open air filter kit by far for me was the most noticeable performance improvement I made.
