I was very unimpressed with Cobras on my '72'; they were marginally (only!) better than worn out Dunlops. I've been very happy with ME880s in the past.

Also heard reports of Cobras splitting, I'll give them a miss myself. Avon used to make great tyres, 41 years ago Roadrunners transformed my Honda 500/4 from a foul handling wet weather death trap into a decent handler when I also put Girling shocks on

Stage I will improve performance, but more importantly, your bike will breathe better, exhaust better, run cooler in the Tropics of Florida which is saying something. Run cooler? That statement is based upon an oil-tank reading, and that said, I don't see 210 degrees F, be it in Florida where I live, or across the Mojave Desert on the way to visit my blood-family in California, Paso Robles. Your bike will be happier with Stage 1, so will you. ThunderHeader and that plastic part removed from the "ham-can", K&N filter installed, no re-map necessary on the fuel-injected bikes. that was my Stage 1, and it was done to the bike by the local Harley Dealership, brand new bike, zero miles, other than test, full-warranty, but came with a ThunderHeader, high-flow air, mini-apes, Avon Venom-X tires (tyres), forward-controls, and a bunch of cosmetics. Problem is, Stage 1 leads to Stage 2...ought to be illegal, it's addicting.

I am very happy with my American Elites....have had them on about 2 months, but my review is somewhat restricted by my sedate type riding and never in the rain, so doesn't really count much for the true, blue riders, but for my riding they are so much smoother and less affected by road imperfections than my previous 401 and 402s, so I will stick with the Elites in the future. Everyone seems to be very happy with their tires, but when the time come to replace them they continue to look for the perfect tire, makes me think perhaps they weren't as happy with their tires as they let on. Oh, the only thing I dont like about the Elites is the front tire's thread is running in the opposite direction as the rear tire....just looks odd.

I am wondering about something and I know the experts in here can set me straight on this....my understanding from reading various posts in here (my understanding may be incorrect) so on with my question. I understand that the EFI on my 09 1200C does not change the fuel/air mixture since it is set by the a throttle position indicator. Is that true? If true, would that not cause an engine to run leaner when you reduce any air restriction, such as going from the stock HD air filter to a K&N low air restriction type filter, without doing any remaping of the fuel/air percentages??? Thanks for any feedback on that.

i think the re-map mandatory... otherwise it's a job not done properly
it's not that the dealer actually re-mapped?

my opinion is NO
maybe in closed loop (the O2 narrow band sensors give something like a feedback back to the ECM) a little the ECM adapt himself to the new A/F ratio

in open loop (no feedback from ECM about A/F ratio) you had to do a mandatory canned remap that reset the values of A/F ratio based on the throttle position, rpm ecc.. (or in alternative a wide band O2 sensor autotune)

if you want to know more

Got a kick out of reading the posts from over 10 years ago where people used upcoming EPA enforcement as an excuse for not doing a basic stage 1.
I've got drag pipes with khromewerks HP+ baffles, Dragtron II AC with a k&n filter, 45/175 jets/N65C Needle shimmed .040,A/F screw 1 5/8 turns out and it's about as good as it gets AFR wise. The difference is the N65 needle from an '88 sportster. All ya need to do to the carb for most all stage 1 upgrades tho I did go from 42 to 45 on the slow jet.
Just bought the SERT 32124-04B for $80 to work on the timing curve.
