I think u have to post twice so make this my 2nd.
14 Vegas bought the bike and it seemed to run rich too me cold to warm start if u cracked the pipe would blow black smoke out the pipes consistently. Would surge some at steady rpm and would fall flat from low to sudden high rpm. Now I removed the baffles on my x-pipes and no black smoke (leaner condition correct?) Very little downshift poping but runs better I think. Everyone says tho these bikes run lean factory yet mine seemed Rich thought?

Yeah bike is bone stock engine wise when I bought it. And it ran rich (blowing black smoke upon revs) which from what I hear is odd considering they run lean factory.
