Question about 2002 Harley Davidson FXSTB Night Train

Upgrade the exhaust

I've got an '07 Night Train. I'm looking to upgrade the exhaust and have gotten about a million different answers none of which is helping. My question is can I just upgrade the exhaust with something that sounds and looks better than stock without going into all kind of mods right away. I know that half the fun of owning a Harley is customizing it but for now I'm just looking for some advise on the pipes. Do I have to install a race tuner ?? Do I have to get it Dyno'd ?? What advantage is there to using an entire new exhaust vs. slip on's ?? Do I need the high flow air filter?? I understand the Harley dealers love to upsell but do really need all that stuff just to get some better looks and sound ??

The 07 bikes have the 02 sensors hat self adjust in cruise mode. The problem is that the mixture is real lean in this mode for EPA regs. When you add just slipons, the mixture will become a bit leaner and the 02 sensors will self adjust. Problem is they can only self adjust so much and are at the edge of the air fuel ratio that will give you a good running engine. With the addition of a fuel adjusting unit, whether it be a SERT or a PC III or TFI, the fuel will be richened up to a more workable ratio and the bike will run better and cooler. The Stage 1 intake is optional but consider the addition of the stage 1 with slip ons and a fueler of sorts will add about 10-12 HP and also TQ which will make the bike run better and a bit cooler also.

How long does it take to get answer to my 6-28662 coupler problem

Hello John

A lot depends on whether there is a model train expert on Fixya and then if the expert sees your post. Fixya gets 7 million questions a year, so they fly past the feed pretty quickly. Many of us have multiple interests and we look at the feed rather than a specific category. We also help as free unpaid helpers and we have paid jobs that mean we are not monitoring every post.

To answer your question, I have just looked at it, from my Hornby 00 days, couplers often needed a little gently bending to get them to latch automatically. Look at a coupler that works and compare it to the one that doesn't. Ben gently to copy the good one.

Reply to the message as a COMMENT, that way I will get a notification you need additional help.

None of these are for the Mountain Rock Train Table. Instead they are for other sets. I'm also looking for the Mountain Rock Train Table instructions. Not the Mountain Pass set. They are different.

Will not idle down

You have to take it into the dealer and have them adjust your idle with the digital tech, thats the only way to set the idle on these newer injected bikes.

Security System

You need one of the key fobs, or the access code to release it through the handle bars. you should have gotten these when you purchased the bike.
If you have access to neither, then you will have to take it to your local HD dealer and have them reset the system for you.

I'm wondering if the firmware can be upgraded as that might be the easiest thing. My other thought was that putting the hard drive into a PC and trying to view the video might be a way to see it.
