Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles
I changed the original air intake for a performance K&N and the sensor of the air entry keeps losen and the bike shows an error code. How do I jump the sensor so it does not display the error code anymore?
Hi Anonymous, try using blue or red Loctite or teflon pipe sealant on the threads of the sensor hold down screw. Good luck.

There is no Back Pressure from a freer flowing muffler. These engines were designed with a certain amount of Back Pressure factored in. There IS a sensor in the system. The sensor, will read that the fuel/air mixture needs to be leaned out.
Leaning out causes hotter combustion area components. The combustion chamber in the head, the exhaust, intake valve faces, and seats, plus the spark plug electrodes.
The average temperature on a valve face can exceed 1600 degrees Fahrenheit. (Exhaust)
Excess heat will also cause lack of lubricity in-between the piston, and cylinder wall.
This causes galling of the piston sides, and cylinder walls.
Eventually everything 'freezes' inside, and your engine comes apart like an A-Bomb!
If you want to play, you have to pay. Either have a tuner do it regularly, or buy the tool, and learn how to use it. (Or go back to the stock mufflers)

check your oil level that you you have not overfilled your engine oil.
Other problems that can cause smoking for instance your bike was stored with fuel in it and the petcock was not shut or diapham is bad causing fuel to seep into the engine raising the oil level not good.
other problem you have a scored or scratched cylinder wall passing oil past the rings.

Yes. The engine needs to be able to breathe with these new mods. I would suggest K&N filters. They are the best flowing filter on the market. But yes the bike is telling you that it needs more air!
