Default When is Fuel Controller recommended?

Hey all,

I just purchased a 2015 Gunner, I'm excited! I'm going to get some Hacker Zoomies for pipes, and am wondering if it's necessary to get the fuel controller, or just preferred? Is it more important to get the fuel controller if you upgrade the air intake? I'm just looking for some opinions on this subject. Thanks!

Good advice BP, yeah mate run her in fully then youll really appreciate the mods and with open pipes like them yeah a fuel controller.
Dont want red hot exhaust valves blowing out onto the road do we.
While yr running her in you can save up and do the zorst, intake, timing, and tuner/tune in one BIG hit!
Welcome Nathan,
Enjoy that Gunner!

Fuel controller, pipes, and air is a must... Do it after your first service.

I have the Zoomies on my Gunner, you'll love them. I got the fuel controller that Hacker pairs with the pipes. It's all pretty easy to install, connecting to the injectors is interesting but not impossible.

You only need a fuel controller if you do TWO engine changes to a bike. Air filter & Pipes = NEEDED. Timing Wheel and Air Filter = Needed. timing Wheel & Pipes = Needed. Any one of these by themselves you do not NEED a tuner. If you want to be SUPER carefull you can simply unplug the O2s and be fine.

CAMs by themselves = NEEDED

It's not just any victory.... It's MY Victory!
