I've heard great things about the Terry components tuner but havnt used one yet. If u plan on doing any motor work or anything in the future I would use the hd super tuner. The power commander is also really nice and there are alot of maps available online for free. If u have a local dealer or shop u like using, see what they prefer to tune with on their dyno, that way if u have an issue with the bike they will be familiar with the component. Good luck!

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

2012 1700 classic vulcan exhaust


The VTX 1800 is fuel injected which requires the additional sensors (oxygen, throttle position, etc). However the VTX 1300 is carbureted, which takes the sensors out of the equation. If you are changing the exhaust with a:
Slip on-muffler
  • remove old mufflers, and slip on new ones
  • could add a better air filter, and you get a better sound, minimal power gain
Full Exhaust System
  • Remove old pipes from the cylinder heads (i.e. jugs) and use a rag to wipe off the seat and block the opening.
  • once both pipes have been pulled from the jugs, prep your new pipes with windex. Clean them well, finger oil and other gunk can cause bluing spots
  • Install the pipes, torque them in place, re-clean the pipes and use a chrome polish.
  • Purchase carburetor jetting kit, and either take it to a shop to do it, or you do it. If you have never re-jetted a carburetor before, I suggest you go to a reputable shop and get it done.
  • With the carb completed, a new air filter (high flow K&N is what I use - I have gone through the same exhaust system replacement procedure on my sled)
If you replace the exhaust without completing the carb/air cleaner, there is a very high probability that you will get backfires every time you ride. This will happen especially on deceleration, and will eventually blow out your valve seat, causing the engine to feel weak due to lost compression.

2001 ROAD GLIDE SCREAMING EAGLE IDLE HIGH COLD STALL WARM


Hi Anonymous, high idle on fuel injected models can be casued by a faulty IAC valve located on the top front of the induction module. It has either failed electronically and needs to be replaced or mechanically getting gummed by contaminated engine blow by. You can try cleaning the unit by removing the air cleaner and backing plate, unplug, unscrew and remove the IAC. Using carb cleaner and " LOW " volume compressed air to clean the metal pintle and shaft that is spring loaded and has an operating length of just under 1 inch. Aventurous souls who did not heed the low air warning have launched pintle and spring into parts unknown. There is no guarantee this will work but worth a try since a new one is $50 Good luck

I want to remove the baffels from stock 06 Sportster mufflers


not a good idea unless you upgrade the air cleaner to a high flow or screaming eagle...bike is tuned to run with restricted pipes..if you change one you need to change the other..with the 06 you could also need a download or fuel management system..

Best exhaust for 08 flhx


If your looking for full exhaust replacement then vance and hines true duals with ovals, but if your looking for good slip ons, then Screaming Eagle street performance slip on mufflers sound great and add performance.

Engine performance: Pick up


the easyest thing would be to change the air filter to a more freer flowing style like K&N and a slip on a more free flowing muffler like a reverse cone megaphone
