Default Fuel controllers for pre-08 bikes

Today I'll be picking up an RPW Thor pipe for my 07 Hammer and installing it this weekend. I already have a K&N filter installed, which means this thing will be getting pretty darn lean with these mods and I'll need a fuel controler.

What sucks is I don't know of any reliable dyno place available for bikes near by, which means that at least in the short run, it would be nice to load a map that would be "close enough", just so i can ride the bike without much worry.

My setup isn't radical, so I doubt I need anything overly sophisticated, but i don't know what I don't know.

So i wonder how have some of you guys approached this task? Which controller did you go with? Are there any specific ones to stay away from?

Any and all input, is appreciated! I'm all ears guys.

Get a VFC3 and install it. That's as much as you need. If you have a good dealer. Ask them to install a map from a stock 2005 Vegas. Thet will thing they can't do it, but it loads right up.
broggyr and Graptor like this.

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

Appreciate the responses guys. The VFCIII does seem like one of the cheaper options, which is good if that's all I need.

Kevinx: are you a parts dealer? If so, would you be able to sell the vfcIII with the 2005 map already loaded?

My closest dealer is new to selling Vics, so I have no clue how competent they are yet. I might give them a call.

Probably the smartest thing would be to find a reputable tuner. Having it all dialed in just right would be time and money well spent i I think.

I'll keep doing my homework.

I did the same thing and had the same question, I bought a power commander 3, tried a couple of the stock programs and the bike runs great now. No pops and a smooth idle.

All you are getting with a K&N filter is a washable filter. The stock airbox is lame.

If you swap that airbox for something better (S&S/Lloydz/torque tubes) there's shit-ton of power in there you'll never see with what you have.

Oh nice! So there's a map for the modded exhaust only, and also modded intake and exhaust. Good deal. I don't see myself modding any further.

Just to make sure I understand thought, these maps will only work on a PC3, they probably can't be loaded onto a VFC3, is that right?!

Do you mind sharing what mods you have and which map you used?

Oh hell... I had forgotten about that. I know you're right, cuz i've seen those LLOYDZ dyno graphs before. I should put it on the to do list...
