Tuning your bike.

I am going to install the Vance and Hines slip on exhaust and the VO2 air intake system in my 750. Now instead of buying the fuelpak auto tuner can I just take it to the dealer ship to get that done? Also should I even worry about getting it tuned at all?

I'm fairly sure the Harley service department can do the tuning but just call them and ask.




Always remember that for every mile of highway there are two miles of ditches.

I'll be doing the fuelpak fp3 here soon instead of the hd stage 1 download.

I opted for the FP3. It is a bit more than the dealer charges for a stage 1 download, but the dealer download is a one time thing. The FP3 allows you to make changes for the life of your bike, AND can provide real time data (revs, temps, gear position, and more) on a tablet or cell phone display. Vance & Hines has specific maps developed just for your combo of the Competition slip-on and VO2 air filter. Harley's tunes are generic.

Yes, you do need a tune when you change the pipe and air system, there is much more air flowing, and your bike will run too lean without proper fuel mapping.

It would be best to go with their fuelpak since you already have their exhaust and air intake.

@Obtuse I contacted the V&H customer care, and they told me the FP3 is meant to go along with the V&H intake and Exhausts only and not for the Screamin Eagle ones... any thoughts ?

From the FAQ on V&H website:

"What map do I choose if I do not see my exhaust listed?

Answer: When a map for your setup is not available, it is best to select a similar exhaust system and AutoTune that map to tune it in specifically for your setup."

I am curious how your dealer will get this map loaded to the FP3 module. When choosing maps for a given bike, one is directed to a V&H server for map choices. I am also curious what they are charging for this file.
