Thanks to everyone here and Sportster.org (http://www.sportster.org/tech/) I have completed my taxes. Rejetted to the 45 slow jet (thanks stevo)http://www.xlforum.net/forums/showthread.php?t=4465 http://www.xlforum.net/forums/showthread.php?t=5071

Tossed and turned on round vs. hamcan, hamcan won with the NRHS HurricaneFlow AC (even though I really like Turbota, barry1967, Xena, and gronk62 bikes with the SE AC :clap ) but Bert's video just sealed the deal :D

I wanted to stay stock this time around (my old sportster was more chopper like in a bolt on sense ;) )

I was going to go with the Cycle Shacks but it seems that they have become very rare (backordered...forever?) so I weakened and bought the SEII which are nice (and of course much more $$$).

Worked on it last night after we put the girl to sleep (my daughter, not the bike :p) It really did not take long ...I think a couple of hours to rejet, pop the plug, and change out the AC.
Fired it up this morning (maybe 15 seconds on the starter and ignition :clap ) and went for a test run and was impressed by the change in responsiveness. I'm not trying to break any land speed records but stock seemed a little ...choked on the low end. Really sweet now.
I did not mess with the mix (yet) and it seems to run fine. At least at sea level you may be able to get away with not popping the plug. Jetting is 45 idle jet and 180 main jet following stevo's suggestion on late model Sportster's. Really like the NRHS HurricaneFlow AC. It's built like my old 72 Dodge Challenger. Sadly I had to break a telephone pole with it in one of my nine lives :cry1 . I don't think I will be testing the AC in such a manner.

I would recomend it to any of you fence sitters. Come on live a little :smoke

Pre-AC upgrade (but looks the same except for new grips) Mustang seat, SEII pipes, front turn signals relocated,rear brake light/turn signal mod, oh yeah one of those shiny trim rings for the headlight.

How much does that set up cost? Do they have an app for the 03 1200's

NRHS makes them. 2004-05 have a different set-up then earlier models. The 2003 (and earlier) is less expensive and runs $139.95 for the centered AC and $149.95 for the offset one like Bert has set up on his bike. http://www.xlforum.net/forums/showthread.php?t=6086

You can use both of them but the 2004-05 air cleaner cover does not act as a sealing cover (cosmetic) like the earlier ones thus you the greater expense of having a special front plate that does the sealing. Check out NRHS web site for the official word:

NRHS's web page for the HurricaneFlow:
http://www.nrhsperformance.com/partshurricaneflow.shtml#HurricaneFlow%20Air%20Cle aners%20for1991-2003%20Sportsters

They all use the K&N air filter and are made from aluminum billet (CNC)...no cheesy sheet metal. That's why they cost more.

That looks good. I like them alot better already. When I get ready to buy I will go with that since everyone is having problems with the SE A/C.
