Got to say those performer plus baffles and getting the idle set back to 800rpm on the twinkie sure does get the idle back to the potato potato sound of my EVOs!!!

I am currently running SANTEE 225`s - straight cut, short, staggered duals...........1-5/8 I.D. pipes and I fit HP Plus baffles, re-tuned the DFO and the sound has to be heard to be appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!

At the lights, nice cammy potato/potato loppy sound
On the throttle, nice, deep, sound
Steady cruise, nice deep, mild sound..............definiteley THE Harley sound.

All the best, Ozzie

Cool sound is nice, but at 800 RPM, your Twinkie is starvin' for oil. It ain't a Pan/Shovel.

Hi DT, how are you my friend and yes your right there buddy............been a bit overwelmed to have the bike back after so long.............is running much hotter at idle too.

All the best, Ozzie

Ozzie,

How did you get the idle down??? EFI right??

My hot idle PSI is at 15psi right now, verified with a couple of different gauges.

So I would be interested in lowering it a bit.

Now, about that ugly uncovered axle end...:whisper:
Hehehe, OK, it is an eye sore. I haven't yet gone chrome-a-phobic on the nut covers yet. I am torn between the thinking that they suck to take off when you wrench on it verses the fact that the stock nuts just plain suck.

Is this a hijack in the making?!?

Yes EFI, Pretty sure the chief mechanic here did this without telling me............as all the bikes here run low idles........I have the HD Speedo/tacho and it was running 1000 at idle always...........

Just got the bike home and realised at each set of lights on the way back that the idle was at 800 rpm..........sounds like a Harley should..........but as DT correctly states bike does not lubricate below 1000 idle correctly and will eventually cause pre-mature wear or worst case engine failure.

All the best, Ozzie
