When I installed my duals I had a bad popping on decell. Also my bike was running pretty hot. Installed the DFO and adjusted it as per instuctions. Bike runs great now with no popping at all. Runs much cooler too. I have never seen it over 250* even on the hottest So Cal days. Most of the time it runs about 210*. A check of the plugs after a long high speed run and they look perfect.DRIMNER1 said:The pipes I'm getting are true dual Hard Krome 3" (1 3/4 pipe inside surrounded by 3" 360 degree heat shields)...they have baffles though, so do you anticipate me having the same problem as you (lean)? Thanks!
Kinda me, too....My bike ran good with the Stage 1 and Duals. It wasn't getting hot and the plugs looked good. However, I added a DFO and found out it ran better.04GLIDE said:I have the stage 1 download and run a DFO on top of it. I do this due to I have true duals and it was still on the lean side.
Since you aren't into turning your motor at redline, I'd get the Big Sucker, DFO, and pipes. Two people that I work with have done just that on their '05 bikes are are very satisfied.DRIMNER1 said:I can't decide whether to:
get stage 1, get pipes, do big sucker kit, and a new air cleaner cover to boot
get pipes, do nothing else except maybe add a new air cleaner cover
get pipes, DFO, and maybe a new air cleaner cover
get stage 1, get pipes, get DFO, etc as in the first example...
All comes down to money, but I'll spend it if and where i need to...
I should be more clear on how it runs with just the stage 1. I can tell you exactly because I had to disconect my DFO Just 1/2 hour ago due to a broken wire. I went for a ride afterwards. Bike runs OK but pops on decel and doesn't have the crisp throttle response it had with the DFO. I know that it will run a little hotter also as it did before. I will give it to a buddy of mine and have him check it out and find out where the break is in the wire.DRIMNER1 said:Boy its pissing rain and 5 degrees here in Canada, must be nice to be out...I havent stored it yet though, so hoping for a few more rides...
I re-read the whole thread, and you mention having done the stage one first then getting the dfo...so when you say 'running like crap', should i interpret that the stage one (backup for just this such ocassion) did not pull its weight for your setup?
I mean this with all sincerity, as I'm just going it over and over again lately whether or not i 'need' the stage one as a 'backup'...
I am leaning towards no stage one, and just the dfo..
Good luck with your prob, I'm sure its something brutally simple....
IMO, not if you don't want to raise your rev limiter. The worry about the DFO breaking down is a lot of unneeded paranoia. Very few fail. It it did, you likely wouldn't cook a motor that had only exhaust and air cleaner changes.HarleyJoel said:Thanks for the quick reply. Now I have to decide if I should add that to my DFO or not.
