Default reverting back to stock flash

Hi was wondering i have the 2007 hammer stage1 flash and bike has been rich since day one.I would like to go back to stock flash and put a fuel controller on.Dealer says stock flash is around 200$ plus an hour labour.Why would victory charge for the stock download?

Go to another dealer. Unless Vic has recently started charging for a stock flash, mine were always free.

Ride safe.

If you are adding a fuel controller, you do not need to go back to stock flash. Keep the stage1 flash, and add the fuel controller.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Crossroads beat me to it...ya don't worry about going back. Just throw the controller on and adjust it and call it a day.

Your dealer should have told you this and it sounds like he was just trying to make a quick buck off of you which is BS imo

Please note that it is ONLY necessary to revert back to a stock download when installing a VFC on 2002-2007 models. It IS NOT necessary on the 2008-later models. The downloads on the 2008-later models are lean enough that it does not drastically affect the tuning of the VFC

Oh, that's rigth, it's a 2007!

Stock map should be free though, as others have mentioned.

What kind of air filter do you have on it? Do you plan on upgrading the air cleaner?

i have S&S and the plugs are black black!!!i thought i had air leak but more air would make the bike run lean anyways i check intake as i hear the rubber gets cracked they are fine.No exhaust leaks cant figure out why the plugs are so black.thats why i want to go back to stock put on fuel controller and see how that works.I know the stock flash is really lean to pass EPA so i should not have to remove any fuel just add hopefully atleast that what i am being told
