exhaust and fuel mapping

First post and 100% new to Victory and bikes for the most part. Used to ride 7 or 8 years ago, but nothing like the Vegas. I am picking up a 07 Vegas 8-ball tomorrow. I hope to order exhaust within a few days. In my research I see that the exhaust comes with a new tune for the EFI. The first question is how does that tune get loaded to the bike? Can I do it with the right equipment and if so what is that right equipment? I have seen recommendations for fuel managers like VFC III. Those look simple to install. If I install one of those at the same time is the remapping needed at all? How much does a dealer usually charge to remap the bike?

Thanks

A few things,

Welcome to the VF.

Second there are a bunch of threads on this very subject. No less than 2 circulating recently. The search feature is your friend and likes to be used like a $2 hooker.

Third you cannot do the download yourself.

Fourth, you don't need a tuner unless you are planning on doing internal work to the engine.

I'm assuming by you member name you have an 07 Vegas.

The best download is the S&S 05 Hammer DRAG download.

This is a technical question and we have a forum especially for Technical issues. You have a netter chance of getting a quicker answer when you post in the correct forum. I will move this thread to that forum.


How is that for a welcome?

You are very wise. It is a 07 Vegas.

Very good welcome thanks. I used the search, but still was not sure. One follow up. I read that the tune should be in place before you run it after putting on the exhaust. How big of a deal is that if I got to go 20 miles to the dealer?
Thanks for the input.

20 miles will be OK. The bike will be running lean so you don't want to push the engine.
