This is a great post on wet vs dry sump oil systems. might not be 100% applicable to Vrod, but I did a post on a crank evacuation system I'd installed on my bike, you may wish to review it. Here is the dry sump dyno; https://www.enginelabs.com/news/efi-...stem-is-worth/

Freudie, Was on the RB Racing site today. He'd posted some links to the TTs tuner. Looks like a "piggy back" unit that retains the Delphi unit. The link to the tuning manual is here; https://rbracing-rsr.com/downloads/tts_tuning.pdf Got any experience or comments you'd care to share ? Thx

TTS is a flash tuner, not piggy back.

Ron is correct, TTS Mastertune is the evolution of the SERT (both flash tuning products that modify the calibration parameters within the Delphi OEM ECU).

My personal favorite for that route is the PowerVision unit with the TargetTune module (wide band read outs on the handle bar with full time closed loop is an excellent thing to have when you get deep into tuning).

FYI: Forget that terrible "vendor" like a bad habit. He's a miserable guy and spouts garbage as gospel. I imagine a crochety 70 year old in a garage with dust around him cussing all day. I know a local engine builder near me who is identical in behavior. His shop looks like a dust covered museum of the 60's as well. Good times.

Article from Gale Banks interview. This piece would be good for those wanting to see actual results without having to buy dyno time; https://www.enginelabs.com/engine-te...th-gale-banks/

Reducing unsprung weight is always a good thing for control and how the forks/shocks function over bumps. I can't afford those however.

Those are worse than the carbon fiber rims price on my race....BICYCLE (haha...yes we have similar tech on human powered rides).

For $4500 I can think of ways to get more tangible power results.

Tech Talk Tuesday- George Bryce

George does a free 30 minute class on performance ? racing / Harleys every Tuesday night. Go to Star Power Racing on Facebook to get info. He also posts them on Youtube, here was what I believe was the first one.
He'll also take questions if you send them in. A must see in my opinion. Thanks George !
