Default Advice On Stage 1

decided to buy my first bike 2 weeks ago, after taking the msf course. i ended up with a nightster, i think it fits me perfect (5'6" 140lbs). now its time to get some upgrades. stuck trying to decide on how i want to do my stage 1 kit. was thinking of going with cycle shack slip on's se stage 1 ac and the stage 1 download or vance and hines blackout se stage 1 ac and se super tuner. Need opinions on if its worth the extra money to go the super tuner route, or if you guys have any suggestions on any other set ups

Wow one week and no reponses? I guess alot of this stuff has been covered ad-nausium if you search around.

FWIW I have the SE AC but it isn't reccomended here due to backplate warpage etc...there are threads here. Time will tell how it works out my bike is only a month old.

As for fuel management I went top shelf and went with the Dynojet Powervision. The price for me wasn't much more than the SERT and it can mount on your handlebars to show you real time data on the display. Much better than a plastic box IMO. Again, a few threads here on the PV and how to datalog and tune with it. The display can be configured many different ways and display any of the data the ECM is processing.

i know about the fever. trust me.

but if this is your first bike i would suggest riding it around for 6 months and getting used to it before dumping a lot of money into perf upgrades that are going to net maybe 10 hp. this will give you time to become familiar with what is out there and be able to have more confidence in choosing the components that will work for you.

Welcome from Sw Pennsylvania.

I have to agree with bitpusher on this one. When I first got my bike earlier this year, I had all these ideas to make it just plain rock. But, after putting on some miles I quickly found that most of those ideas got changed because I found that I needed to make upgrades that enabled me to stay on the bike longer and more often, not go faster. Instead of a lot of performance upgrades, I ended up buying items such as bags to store the things I might need should the weather change, a windscreen to keep the cold weather and bugs of my face and lots of good riding gear for all seasons. To be able to ride as often as possible became my main priority.
I also recommend buying the good stuff the first time. Why spend $500 for something that's good when you could have spent $700 on the best ,because you know, sooner or later you'll want to buy the best.
Get out there and put on some miles . Enjoy the ride.
