I hate to sound ignorant but what is a SERT?Krayven Sumhead said:You will end up paying for a download that's still gonna be running lean. I, too, ended up getting a SERT after paying for a couple of different downloads.
Some 'stealers' will actually have someone that knows how to dyno tune the SERT. After the 'stage one' re-map, my bike was still backfiring thru the throttle body and just generally running sh*tty. Of course the selling dealer will tell you 'That's how a Harley runs' (Hehehehe) My scoot was running so lean, while out in Co. at upper elevations the motor sounded like someone had a handful of marbles and were shaking them. Start out with a SERT and save yourself the frustration. The SERT will correct a lot problems such as intermittent 'high idle', and all the coughing and kicking back thru the throttle body. It also dropped the temp of my oil 20 degrees. Well worth the money.

Forget the dealer down load as it's not gonna work anyway. since you went to true duals ...the cylinder mapping for both cylinders needs changing.
The duals have a dramatic effect on scavaging/fill of both cylinders compared to the stock headers which are sort of a "poor mans" 2-1. Aint no canned dealer down load for $150.00 thats going to be close.
So...now you buy the race tuner (SERT). But..you load the map for a SE Fat Boy with a/c and slip ons if it's available for 06. If not you copy and paste the map for an 05 SE Fat Boy...onto the map for an 06 FLHTCUSE....but you lower the target A/F ratios for both cylinders down to 13.9 any place they are higher...and cut the Decel Enleanment values in half...then load it.
Simple...isnt it !!
'Thequidg said:I'm a bit confused. My FLHTCUSE runs lean. It occasionally sputters and often dies. The dealer thinks this is no big deal and I should just get used to riding a Harley, because that's the way they act. This is my third fuel injected Harley and neither of the other two ever acted like this one. I was told there is nothing they can do, just live with it. Sorry, but for $32k the bike needs to run right when I pick it up, not after I spend another few hundred dollars on additional equipment that will void the warranty.
I'm having (somewhat) the same issue with my 06 SE Ultra. Don't know where you live but I live at 6000 feet (no I don't live in an airplane) and I've had mine sputter in the middle of an intersection (very unnerving). I have learned that the bike HAS to be fully warmed up before riding or it can (and has) die a block from the house and be a bitch to get re-started. Mine has no mods... just as it came out of the box. I wonder if it requires adjustment for running at this altitude. My 2000 FLHTC (carb) ran great and I seldom used the choke to start it. Of course I had re-jetted it too.Thequidg said:The motorcycle costs $32k. It does not come with a SERT. It runs lean, causing it to sputter occasionally, often dying in the mniddle of intersections. In order to make the $32k bike run right, the overpaying customer must purchase the SERT for $400 and pay an additional $200 for the dyno.
I plan to push HD into correcting the problem without cost to me. Again, I expect the f**king thing to run right when I buy it! It's not as though I bought it from a shady guy down the street.
You fellas with 06's are fukked.jvall1201 said:MY new Screamin Eagle arrived.Had the dealer install Rinehart Duals & Stage 1 Air Cleaner. Now he tells me he can't re-map until Harley releases the new
program on hopefully January 10th. HELP! is this my only option at this time?
