I just installed my LLoydz filter and Replacement cobra tuner.
Phil set it up for what he felt would give me the best performance and fuel mileage. ( Phil is the cobra tuner). After reviewing this thread I decided to not connect the O2 sensors at all.
These are my findings after a 2 hr ride:
I can feel a nice change with the LLoydz filter. A snappier throttle response and no obnoxious air sound. While accellerating my bike revs up nice and clean. Very happy with this choice.
Now the cobra. No check engine lights! I feel a lot more power thru the rpm range. This thing screams and runs very strong a definate difference from the 1st cobra unit (maybe cause no O2's this time?) I did slow throttle accels and quick hard accels. I tested roll ons in 5th and 6th and There is a distinct difference than just running stage 1 flash and O2 disconnect. The fuel tuner and the LLoydz filter is a great match with my D&D's.
Overall I am pleased with the outcome and can tell you if you are looking to just upgrade fuel , air , and exhaust then dont waste your time with stg 1. For not much more $ the LLoyds filter and VFC3 or PowerPro tuner with your choice of slip-ons is a great way to go. If you think you want stg1 then you want more for your bike. Stg 1 is just a tweak and not much more. Go this route. you will be happier. I will call this stg 2
Hopefully now we can burn up another thread like this one it was educational to say the least and entertaining as well

Reason: left out a sentence
Did not look the IAV up in the service manual. I have done lots of carbs over the years. Also have done lots of diesel fuel systems of different types. Can somebody do a simple explanation of the IAV valve and what it does. Then can somebody explain or diagram making your own and how or where it hooks up to and the benefits. ---Yes been wrenching for years, but yes like all people I do not know everything, ha, ha. So help us who do not know out,please.
