Hey all
My buddy has an "06" Soft tail Standard 88 Cu. In.He says his bike accelerates harder at about 4/5 throttle than at full throttle. He says he can twist it open and as it starts to accelerate if he backs off a bit............it really accelerates a lot harder.And conversely if he is at 4/5 throttle and accelerating and opens it all the way he can feel it fall off..........He has an Arlen Ness Big Sucker, Bassani Road Rage 2. 2 into 1 exhaust and a Dobek fuel tuner set by them for his bike. Any ideas?

I will pass this onto him, thank you. Can you recommend a Dyno tuner ? We are in Missouri near Cameron [about 60 miles North of KC.Mo.] Also what is the usual cost to Dyno tune a scoot?
Thanks again.

I've heard good things from Gail's HD in Grandview, not sure if Mike Wilson went back there or not.
Mike Wilson used to work there, then had his own shop for awhile.

I'm not familiar with that tuner but have him download its manual and see if there is a way to adjust fuel at the upper end of the throttle position.
It could also be adding too much fuel, either will make it feel like its falling on its face at WFO.
If he can, try adding fuel at the 90% and 100% throttle positions and see what happens.
If its worse, then pull fuel.
