Default Getting a 2007 XL1200R

Hi all, im new to this forum

Im getting a 2007 XL1200R soon and I already have a big cruiser and want a smaller around town bike also.The new EFI XL1200R fit the bill perfect compared to all the bikes i looked at.

How well is the new EFI and ECM adjusting to mods like pipes, cams and intake? Is a Powercommander type aftermarket addon really needed or can the stock ECM be adjusted/re-mapped enough. I heard the SE upgrade wont be out for awhile.

Sofar ThunderHeader isnt listing any XL pipes with the O2 bungs and i dont know if they will even fit when i get forward C type controls.
I was thinking about getting KhromeWerks slipons for 2004-2006 models because they should fit and the baffle design looks interesting. I can sell them later if/when the Thunderheader is available.

Is anyone offering a better breathing air box yet or is there an easy mod to the stock breather box?

Are the 536 lift SE cams a good choice for a midly built XL motor, im looking for 80+ rwhp and torque and 6500 or less redline. My other choice were the Andrews N4.

Has anyone cross referenced things like Buell injectors, ECM, throttle bodies ect?


Sorry for all the questions but im excited about getting another bike and would like some suggestions from any 2007 EFI XL 1200 owners.

My current ride is a VTX1800C which im going to convert to more touring and keep the Roadster for my shorter rides.

Thanks and glad to meet everyone

Welcome to the forum. The 07 model is still being played with and there isn't much that has been done yet to support the mods issue. If you want a good smaller around town bike look at Schwinn. That XL1200 Roadster is a cross country road eating beast and it loves the twisties, which is why I stay out of town with mine. I have a 2005 1670cc Roadstar which is comfy and a real boat. I also have a stage1 2004 XL1200RSC with a fully adjustable suspension, 4.5 gallon tank and pigyback rear shocks. Hands down the Roadstar belongs in town and the Sporty needs some major asphalt to stretch its legs. If you get one you'll find this out only too soon....
