What you got?

Tab non baffled turnouts, K&N, and unfortunately the Tab Tuner. I spent ~10 hours trying to get it to run right, but the Tab unit tries to turn an FI system into a carb. Above 4k it's smooth as glass but any lower and meh. Did scare the out of some poor girl when it backfired going between the mid and low RPM ranges.

Think I'll be ordering a PCV Monday. I called Fuelmoto last night but they were already closed.

I keep the stock air filter. I just cut the snorkel from the airbox because it was not fitting right with all the cables of the gadgets I installed.

I have to modify the PCV map that I downloaded from the Dynojet site. You can have a copy of mine if you want. We are not far. I'm in Clay Rd and Greenhouse.

I may go back to stock intake depending on how much tweeking the PCV takes. I can't imagine it will be worse than the Tab unit. Should have the PCV by Friday. I'll see what the Fuelmoto map does, but I may take you up on your offer.

I'm definitely not far from you (Fry and Kieth Harrow)

No need to re-install the stock intake. Once you install the PCV and the correct fuel map it will be OK. The maps that I got from FuelMoto were creating to much backfiring on deceleration, Had to modify the map from the Dynojet website. I will show you the mods I did to the fuel tables. very easy and simple.

Right now my main concern is mild popping while at a steady cruise. Don't know why I'm still trying to peg this down with the PCV coming, but I dislike leaving problems unsolved.

PCV installed and it's a night/day difference. A lot less popping and hesitation. Feels like it pulls harder as well.Still get a loud backfire around 4k but that's after a WOT pull. Only rode for 15 minutes after warming up so I'll have to take her out for a real ride tonight.

Translated into non-biker English, "I'm planning to be a horrible neighbor and a most annoying citizen, generally thought of as biker trash by the non-riding public, and wonder if this is going to cause any problems." Umm, could be.

Interesting opinion especially for how long you've been in this culture. Welcome to MH, have fun around here, and watch for the animals some bite (hmm...you may like that though).

OP: I looked through the thread and didn't see it mentioned, but are you planning on using hearing protection? The decibels that thing will put out will cause permanent hearing damage. Although you may not care right now your future self and your friends and family may regret your choices.

I did have louder pipes, but changed it for OEM on the shadow to improve fuel economy. After that I did have more issues with cagers not knowing I was there; so I am convinced it helps. That being said my greatest improvement in survivability in rush hour was picking up my atomic eye searing yellow jacket. I know that doesn't fit with the HD image, but you may consider it if you are actually worried about safety.

Says the nub troll. But obviously you are so passionate in your concern for the general public and social well being that you must be a Smart car owner simply visiting this site out of curiosity. The people who give a about your opinion are over there ->

Always. I don't wear plugs with an NRR less than 30. More than hearing loss I find riding with hearing protection to be a lot less stressful.

That was a funny episode. Haven't had any issues with LEO, and thankfully the neighbors haven't complained.

Oh I started riding 40 years ago. I figured a fairly harsh expression of the reality of things would push a few buttons. That's the reality though to those who don't ride and to many who do.
