Looking over several maps I was struck by how rich at 3-4,000rpm/10-40% throttle position. >30% on several maps < only looked at 2:1>. That means while cruising at 70 mph/ 3,000rpm fuel is 30% more than stock. What's YOUR read on this. Fuel consumption <think long distance touring> has gotta suck.

Any thought on this? for example map 807-173.

I know HD maps are lean for EPA purposes or so i am told. I would rather be a little rich with the PC than lean myself.

The canned maps were done in Las Vegas, on bikes owned by locals loaned out as test mules. Hotter than the sun and no humidity there, I think they did a bit of compensation for the LV riding conditions. I live in SoCal and when in Vegas on +100 days if I really try hard I can make my bike run pretty ragged (pinging), and that is with a custom map that runs great here. JM .02

I just had a custom PCIII map done today for my Ultra and it is on the rich side but not much from 2200 on up. Very rich below 2200.

My PCIII is running a bit rich for the break-in of the new 95 build so this may not be of any help but I did notice that 5th Gear @ 3000rpm = 75 mph and 5th Gear @ 3500rpm = 88 mph.

Not sure if this helps your thought process here....:)

I ran a couple canned maps off the Dynojet site for a Stage 1, stock ECU, TC88 setup and the fuel mileage for both (one was for SEII mufflers, the other was for a Kerker 2 into 1 header) was around 32 MPG. Which tells me the map was on the rich side. After a custom dyno map the mileage went up to 42 MPG and the bike ran 100% better.
