I doubt they are "tuning it" unless your price is well over $1300. They will load a canned map into the PV for you.

They are tuning it and not just loading a canned map.
Trust me they know what they are doing.

I have been talking to Harley owning friends,posting here and of course talking to the shop about stage 1 kits as you members know from reading this thread.
There is a question that keeps coming up (including in my own head)...

Is it really necessary?

I also remembered a question that a friend asked me a few weeks ago when discussing a stage 1 kit.
It has me thinking if I really want to spend over $1300 to do this mod.
That question was...

Do you think every 2004 Road King Classic running around with a heck of alot more miles than you have had stage 1 kits installed?
Of course the answer to this question is No.

You could do the pipes and AC.
Let them do the tuner and tuning.
Save some labor cost.

I am going to leave it stock for now or ever.
I just can't justify over $1300 for what you get out of it.
I have so many more important things I could use $1300 for.
I am now done with my own thread.&#x1f601;

Not that it is any of my business what you do with your bike, but what would you need to get out of it to make it worth $1300?

I mean, some folks would say we are crazy for spending $$ on a bike to begin with. There is always something else to do with money, but it's just money. In the grand scheme of things, money just really isn't that important.

Did a quick search. Slip on's and the HD SE air cleaner kit can be had for about $600 May or not need a tuner? Plenty of self adjusting tuners out there. Comes out less than $1300. Worth a look.
