If you have a high flow air cleaner and aftermarket pipes... Then yes you will need some kind of fuel management device. And welcome to the forum. Hope you enjoy.

Thanks for the answer. If I have the stock air cleaner should I still get one? Also any advice one which one I need would be great. Thanks

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.

You say in the OP that you have "a Stage 1 upgrade". If you mean the ECM has been flashed you are good to go.

I never had anything flashed. the guy I bought it off of just told me he had done the upgrade
You can have a Dealer check and see if a Stage 1 flash has been done, if it has you're fine, if not , it's the cheapest way to go .

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.

Sorry, just kinda learning all this stuff. Ok any suggestions on one that won't break my wallet?
:) you bought a HD so be prepared to have your wallet steady/ready.

HD are toys for big children :) There are no limits.

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.
