Default Taking Timing Wheel Out

have a 08 vision with top filter and k&n front filter. S1L1 exhaust with 02's un-hooked and no stage or flash done to bike.
Reason is at +4 set by Lloydz I'm getting 51mpg. I did a 169 mile ride hitting it hard when leaving stop sign and cruising around 65mph all the time. When I put gas in right to the top it only would take 3.3 gallons.
So thats way to good. I put the wheel on zero and went back to stock front filter and tuck out top filter still to good of gas mileage.
I don't think any thing over 45 miles to a gallon is doing and good other then burning the vales.
I checked for air leak around manifold nothing.
Bike was smooth and fast and Never heard any pinging or knocking.
I sent Lloydz a email and never heard word one from them.

Just to recap your reasoning:
51 MPG. Runs fine. No pinging. But you are going back to stock because it is all too GOOD.

What knowledge of this do you have? Have you torn apart a few heads with documented mpg.

Hey Johnny, on one of the UTube videos about the police cross country bikes (same engine), Mike Schultz is braging that these engines can get over 50 mpg. Best I have done is 46....but I have a right wrist problem.

Are you SERIOUS?

I can't say I agree with your logic (if you can call it that).

That said, if someone could prove that getting better gas mileage can cause damage to an engine, I'd then be a believer.

It would seem to me though that whatever changes made to an engine that produce better mileage simply mean that the air/fuel ratio and timing is providing a much cleaner and more complete burn.

Things of that nature that would cause damage are either insufficient air or fuel or bad timing IMO.

That's my logic ... guess I could be wrong ... I was once before (when I married my 2nd wife LOL)

Pay for parts, put them on, refuse to tune it..... take them off.... WTF? Here's a novel idea... why not quit the cheap bastards club and get a tuner so you can tune the bike to take advantage of what you have? Naaaa... you wouldn't want the performance, cool running, and longevity that would bring. Never mind.
