Here's the crux..
2013 Harley 48
1200 5 speed
Electronic fuel ignition.
Previous owner put short loud pipes on it,,, manufacturer unknown. Pipes seem to be installed correctly with no blow by or loose connections. Other than that, no other add ons. Air box is stock.
Acceleration is sweet. Idling is fine. However when I get to a cruising speed, no matter what gear, and no,,, I'm not lugging it, I can hear the engine buck, hesitate, plainly not run smoothly. Going down a hill in gear without applying throttle, it does the same thing including a fair amount of backfiring. With this I think I'm running lean on an already lean bike.
So I'm thinking that with the EFI, I need a fuel pack and a better flowing air system. Am I on the right track? What's your input on fuel packs and Air intakes?
I have a '14 Forty Eight, recently installed an aftermarket A/C (Roland Sands), and the Fuelpak...still waiting for my exhaust. IMO for what it's worth as a noob, get the Fuelpak. My bike needed remapped after the intake upgrade and the fuel pack is great. I first just picked a canned map...it doesn't have those for A/C upgrade just exhaust with the assumption that you have a high flow A/C. So I picked a canned exhaust that was close enough, and rode for about 100 miles. Ran MUCH better, but then again I felt like it needed more tweaking. I just Autotuned the bike, haven't rode since. I'm going out this morning to test it out and keep improving the Autotuned map.
I think the fuelpak is well worth the cash.
