i get a few tingles when im in 5th doing about 55 and i roll throttle wide open

is this because im lugging it or is my motor to lean? weird thing is is that

i dont hear pinging in any other gears only in 5th when im at 55 and roll

throttle open hard. my bike is an 06 dyna w sc/ac cyclechak slipons and

racedownload. what do ya think?

I think that you need to down shift and get your rpm's up, that is a good condition for pinging.:xhere:

heres an interesting thing!

when i noticed the ping the air temp was in the low to mid - 70,s

today i tried to make it ping in 5th at 55 and i couldent get it to ping

but the air temp. was pushing 90.f much hotter. so i gues its true

when the air is more dense your bike runs richer!!:laugh:

or do i have it backwards more dence is hotter/humid or cooler is ....

whatever!!

i got a 06 dyna, woudnt even think about running 55 in 6th. 9.8 compression, bob woods 6 cams and can run regular gas without ping--------under 70 in 6th just dont feel right. at 55 im usually shifting to third. on a slow day, hehehe
