I have a 2006 hd street glide with stage 1 upgrade. I ordered vance and hines true dual head pipes. I already have the vane and hines slip-ons. My ques. is do I need one of the fuel paks? or can I just put pipes on and ride? Thank you in advance.
I bought the fuelpak when I did slip ons and air cleaner. Nice easy solution but now I regret buying it... I want to do cams and other work which isn't supported by a fuelpak.
Just something to think about. But if you plan to go no further than pipes and ac you will be fine with a fuelpak.
I just finished installing VH true duals, VH stage 1 cleaner, and VH twin slash mufflers. I went with the Fuel Pak LCD from VH's, it was easy to install and easy to map to the products I bought, the bike (2013 Road Glide) sounds great and the throttle response seems quicker. With everything else being VH's on your bike I'd stick with their Fuel Pak.
Fuel management will be needed if you use high flow air filters and exhaust systems (including open slip-on's). However try to avoid the fuel management systems that merely bypass/override the ECM signals to the fuel injectors and O2 sensors... a "tuned" ECM is best.
