Low is a guess give or take 118* is the hottest day I've ridden and we did a 250 miles ride that day.

Yep, at LEAST 300 good riding days a year out here.300.
AND on the other days,simply ride NORTH for an hour, and temps are 20-30 degrees cooler. Or head out early, and return early

Dyno went quick he ran it at cruise at various speeds and it read mid to upper 14s air/fuel, under load and acceleration mid to upper 13's air/fuel. So cruise is set up for good MPG and under throttle it's 13's air/fuel for power. I'm happy with that we did change some of the VFC settings like the red was VERY rich, BIG TIME rich and that we turned off by setting the red to zero and turning up the Red/Blue setting to 6. Fortunately RED is only on during wide open throttle so it really isn't a big deal.

Here's the chart. Looking at different dyno postings I'm up 10HP and 11TQ over stock so my mufflers work so that's good. The thing I'm happiest about is the overall running of the bike it has quick throttle response and STRONG acceleration everywhere in the RPM band so that to me is a perfect touring bike set up.....and it's quiet at cruise.

Default Who dynoed it?

Did you take it to the shop on Country Club? Talked to some guys that were set up outside of Cycle Gear a couple of months ago. Forgot the name of the shop. Would like to run my XRs by there. See what the numbers are and make it run better hopefully.

Did you leave the cats in place?

I haven't followed the whole thread very closely, if you mentioned it earlier, my apologies.
