Not sure about 4 footboards on one bike - overkill?

I'd make sure you insurance is very up-to-date too! That's going to be a mobile goody-store.

Well you have pretty well covered most things available it would seem. Since you are going that far, I would go ahead and "shoot the moon" and do either a HD 120R or JIMS120. Either one of those will really get you and the list of options down the road in quick order.

Since you seem to be spending the kind of money to improve performance, then I'd also recommend NOt buying the Screamin Eagle Tuner, and going with the Thundermax TTS Mastertune.

More options. True closed loop ECU functions, better O2 sensors and eliminates the factory ECU.

About twice the price, but also twice the performance.

Since the Thundermax works with a base map, then "learns" and changes as needed, the money you's save in remapping and Dyno time to reprogram the SE unit would be put towards the Thundermax unit.

If you get it through Zippers Performance, you'll also note they sell the larger throttle body you're looking for.

Dave is right, I would go with the tts master tune, also the V&H big radius 2 N 1 your going to leave allot of power on the table with those pipes I would go with a d&d 2N1 your spending allot of money on your bike and engine dont cheat yourself pick an exhaust that performs and looks good.

Make sure you like the bike. Because you are never going to get you money back out of it.

As Baldrick mentioned you need to check with your insurance carrier and make sure that rolling gold mine is completely covered. Default coverage for add-ons usually tops out at about $3000.00.

Thanks all for the input, unfortunately I already have the SE Tuner and V&H.. shot myself in the foot with those back in July when I bought the bike. May look at selling them second hand to replace with D&D or Thunderheader and TTS. Good point on the insurance; will definately look into upgrading my coverage to cover more aftermarket than default coverage. Also was kinda sketchy about the mid and forward mini-footboards.. may just get the one set on the mids and try them out/swap em around with the forwards to see what I like and go from there. If I do end up going with 2 sets and want to switch back to a set of pegs I can always put the second set on the old lady's Fat Boy for passenger pegs.
