Buying a 2012 Fatboy. Planning to have dealer download Stage One remap for the f/i. Following that, a more open intake air filter, and HD Screaming Eagle mufflers.

I did this once on a 2004 Dyna, and it seemed to work well, giving me more low end torque, and much smoother engine performance.


Haven't owned a Harley for three years now. Does anyone have any pro or con comments on this plan? All input will be appreciated.


Thanks,
Lee

Welcome to HST.

I would wait and do the remap when you do the intake and mufflers - that's what a stage 1 is; so no point in doing the remap sooner.

Still will be hotter than hell with the cat. converter in the x-pipe, but some don't notice or mind.

No expert here. But, that should work just fine.

If, however, you're going to build a stronger mill in the future you may want to get a "tuner" so you can adjust fuel/air ratio, mess with timing, etc.

If you're going to ride it Stage One forever ya' done good!

Good Luck, Lee.

I did the same to mine, And had no problems at all. I did a short time later add a tuner and may be it was the placebo effect but it felt like it added a lot more usable power.
