If you want the bike to run at top condition YES it is the only way with out putting on even more expensive fuel injectors. Power commanders are made for all bikes, anyone that ever changes there pipes from stock to any aftermarket pipe should buy a power commander and retune bike, plusyou will get all the advertised horsepower from the pipes and increase fuel performance from it. Power commanders are fairly cheap compared toooo you burning out fuel system because it runs to rich or clog it by runig to lean....go with power commander and in about 4 hours it will run great ( thats install and retune time)

I resently install a new screaming eagle high flow intake along with new pipes and had the bike tuned, if I went back to the stock air cleaner would the bike need retuned again 2010 Electra glide


it may but quality air cleaners do not affect air low velocity or change tuning of the engine you can get the air flow specs for each air filter by googling the name of the filter and reading the air velocity graphs for each filter brand

Throttle position sensor noisy


Are you sure it's not the idle air valve as they can sound louder after changing to a high flow filter...take the filter off and shine a light in the intake when turning the ignition on and off. The idle valve is just inside the intake in a hole at the top...see if it moves in time with the noise that you hear

I took the stock air filter off my 2000 Suzuki Katana 600 and put a K&N air filter in it, when i accelerate it stalls out a bit before kicking up to speed. a slight lag then go.


Changing to a K&N air filter changes the air/fuel mixture for your bike, and you're probably hitting an overly lean spot before things start to even out. For bikes still running carburetors, which I think you have, you can compensate for this by changing to a slightly larger idle jet. Your main jet is probably fine (it's kicking in after the lag); it's the crossover from idle to main jet that's causing the flat spot.
Talk to your dealership parts counter to get recommendations about jet settings. They may suggest, for example, to keep your existing idle jet and go with a different main jet. Expect to try a couple different setups to find one that works best for your bike and your riding style. I would highly recommend keeping your original jets, though, in case you ever go back to the stock air box.

My 2005 Yamaha v star 1100 classic had after market Cobra pipes on it when I bought it. I took it in to have it tuned up because of a lot of backfire while in operation. They said the carb kit was in...


I do not agree your bike should run better then it sounds like it is. Just throwing on a set of pipes and a carb kit is not always all that needs done. I ask about the air filter because it seems your motor is getting to much gas and not enough air. The thing I would do next is to get a higher flow of air on the intake side by going to a high flow air filter. A quick check to see if this will help is to temporarily remove the air filter and test ride the bike. If it runs better without the filter this tells you a high flow filter will help. Your bike may need more work than this to get it right on. The other thing you could have done is get someone to jet in the carb to cut down the fuel flow and get the fuel air ratio right on.

My 2005 Harley FLSTC sputters and idles too low since changed the pipes and put a set of screaming eagles on


Almost any time you change either the exhaust or the air filter on a motorcycle, you must retune the fuel system.

If your bike is carb equipped, you'll probably have to go up one size on the slow jet and idle the engine up a bit. The idle speed screw is located at the top of the carb towards the front of the bike. You may have to take the air filter cover off to get to it. Changing the slow jet will require a partial disassembly of the carb. If your slow jet is a #45, you'll need either a #48 or a #50 jet.

If your bike is fuel injected, you'll have to take it to a dealer to get the fuel map changed.

Good Luck

Can i remove after market oil filter plug off lines at motor an operate engine and not damage the motor


If the bike has a aftermarket oil fliter kit i would let it be. that bike houses the oem oil filter on the side of the motor and you have to remove the front exhust pipe to change it, real pain in the backside. if you just plug off the oil lines it not filter or pump the oil right. if you don't like the way it looks you can remove it but you will need the oem oil cover and a new filter.

Which size Jet Kit for 800 Vulcan Classic?


general rule of thumb is to go up about 10 jet sizes,unfortunately it is a bit of trial and error,and you may have to swap out diferrent sizes to get the bike running right,(jets are quite cheap though)but first step about 10 sizes from standard,your local dealer should be able to tell you what jets are in it and supply replacements,if you change to a hgh flow aftermarket air filter you may have to change jet sizes again as changing the filter may effect the mixture ratio in the carbs,,hope this helps

When changing to aftermarket pipes on a carburated bike I would recommend have the carbs rejetted, the after market pipes will change the fuel mixture and could cause the bike to run a little funny.

just make sure you rejet the carb all bikes come from the factory on the lean side to meet epa standards etc. if you dont rejet you'll actually lose some power and have nasty backfires as well take the time to put a jet kit in i personally recommend dynojet easy to install and comes with suggestions for your application
