Default Your Suggestions

There are those who would like to improve power, performance and gas mileage of their new stock rides. What would you suggest they do? I know my suggestions, but unlike some, I don't feel I'm the only sharp knife in the kitchen.
I'm sure there are many who would enjoy reading your suggestions.

If I had my druthers I'd install the following: RPW Thor pipes, S&S air box and a PCIII. Then off to get the bike dyno tuned. That'd make me happier than a pig in shit.

Coming from an HD(stage 1 103ci) I'm damn happy with my stock 106's power and fuel economy(43mpg avg.) so, I plan to leave it alone.

I'm going to the Vic Shop in 13 days to have the Timing wheel, PCV and Cams put in...I'm not a speed demon and I'm keeping my STOCK EXHAUST cause I like it!! I'm not so much about SPEED as I am about fuel economy and lowering the engine heat by a few degrees. But that's just me.

I too am new to Vic from HD. I spoke with my local tuner who has an excellent reputation and also is a Vic rider. He suggests I put on a pair of slip-ons, air cleaner and he will flash my Vic ecu.

My first mod was HID kit because I like to be able to see and be seen.

My next mod planned are the hard lowers from jtd.

Once I have the lowers on, then its play time and I'm looking at cams, timing wheel, PC-V, exhaust, and then a tune.

Quarter turn throttle and four degrees advance on the timing is all I've done. Great improvement for little effort.
