My same setup, almost! I answer with my 2 cents:Slash said:I want the most performance out of my bike. I have installed the 28 tooth sprocket, 16ga pipes, and filter, download for the pipes and filter.
I V-Modded my 16 Ga's and I LOVE them! Easy to do and all you need do is remove the rear baffles, send them to Steve with $150! Reinstall (a matter of 4 clamps and 2 set screws!) and wail!Slash said:Q1: Should I vmod my stock pipes? Or, my 16ga pipes?
Absolutely! But if I had to do it all over again, I would spring for the Race Tuner as it has more capabilities (i.e. you wouldn't need the 28 tooth reflash to correct your speed-o!)Slash said:Q2: Would a power commander help?
Not sure of the difference between the H/D Race Tuner and the R/Ts I have seen on EBAY, but yes, see Q2!Slash said:Q3: Would the HD race tuner be the way to go?
Depends on what you are looking to do... most HP? Best sound? Mixture of both? TurboTech's pipes are enjoying the best h/p, but there is no current map available for them, meaning you will have to dyno yours and make a custom one. Sampson's are loud as hell, but you will loose h/p. Too many other's to comment on, but I like my current setup for looks, sound, and performance.Slash said:Q4: Should I get some after market pipes?
As per Motown... it is a 7% difference faster. Again correctable with the Race Tuner.Slash said:And one final question, the HD shop did not do a download when they installed the 28 tooth sprocket, am I going faster or slower than indicated?
My instincts are that I'm going slower than indicated due to my gas mileage increasing cruising around at the same indicated speeds.
