Default Anyone running without a fuel pack?

I was kind of wondering since owning your Victory perhaps it was new perhaps not, are you still running your bike without any fuel pack helper? How do you like it what do you think of it? I realize some are going to say they aren't interested in going the route of a Power Commander but question is aren't you curious how much better your bike would run with added fuel? Or does the bike get better stock without the piggy back PC? Just curious.

You just opened another Pandora's Box with that. Just like oil and tires, there's going to be a flood of differing replies. Including mine, which is; How much do you want to spend? How much control do you want over your AFR? Do you want to fiddle with a computer hookup?

I appreciate your input, I have been running a PCV and Autotune since the bike was new , 30000km, I'm not looking for a debate such happens when we mention the O word , just simple input , thoughts etc.

The prior owner of my bike ran it for years with only the O2 disconnected and otherwise bone stock.
In his words stock can get you in trouble, more just gets you there faster.
I find the stock CCT sluggish compared to what I'm used to so going with a little tuning fun.

Had mine for 6 years now and still running stock. Thought about adding filter, pvc, timing wheel, etc. but my XR has more than enough power as it is so I figured best to leave it alone (for now!).

The question people have after adding a PCV or a Maximus tune is: “why would anyone run without one”.

I think that is the case with every bike made in the last 20 years...
Carb or EFI if you let them breathe and tune for the extra air it's like a new bike.
