  1. Sorry to be late to the game here but let me see if I have this right. You put the Lloyd’s air filter and timing gear and Ness pipes on without a fuel controller? If so, then yes, you need a fuel controller. The VFC-III is very easy to diy tune and just adding a couple points at green will probably make your bike run much better. And probably fail emissions, but if you know when the testing is that could be worked around. If I were to venture a guess I would say I bet the dealer downloaded a Vic Stage 1 map to the ecu when they “fixed” it, which is richer than stock, but still not enough for the Lloyd’s filter. And pipes and timing wheel.
  2. Why? Why not? Adding Power or reducing weight is just as much fun on a cruiser as it is on a sport bike. Just a little bit more is almost enough. In the case of my Kingpin I dropped about 8lbs with the battery, about just as much but also unsparing rotational mass with a pair of Conquest Customs composite brake rotors. My RPW exhaust is probably at least 10-15 lbs lighter than stock and when not in use the passenger seat and floorboards come off for another 15 or so lbs. So while 8 lbs. may not seem significant, it's a good piece of several that add up to about 50 lbs, that is significant.
  3. I put a Twinpower lithium battery in my Kingpin a year ago and it's worked fine. When Ballistic first started selling Li batteries I heard they didn't work well with the extra electronics on the Visions, but it's all good in my application.
  4. Ok I'd like to revive this thread in light of recent announcements. I know everyone says, "well someone needs to step up..." and I tried. But I'll be damned if I'm going to put money, time, and effort into making a great rally up in Spirit Lake only to have those cock snot mother fuckers turn the weekend into an Indian and Slingshot rally. So I say to hell with it, I'm out. BUT, as a club I think we should still look at another national level event, just keep it far away from anything Polaris. We have a VMC National Meet that varies time and location depending on the LC that hosts it. How about a VMC Annual Rally same place, same weekend to go along with it? I'm thinking it should be centrally located with great riding. The Ozarks is the first thing to come to mind but CO might be another option. It shouldn't be a duplicate of the National Meet, we don't need two expensive hotel conference room gatherings, let's get outside the box and do something very different. Like reserving space at a park and have a party catered, everybody reserve your own rooms. Weekend activities could include a day at a water park or a large group river float. Something that requires less organization, less funds, but be another annual option for us to get together.
  5. Hey. Myself and a fellow CIVR member apparently simultaneously have started to look into creating a new Spirit Lake event similar to the old AVR. A couple emails have been sent to the events committee with ideas, one for a campground event and one for a dinner / party, either or both of which coincide with the Boji Bike Rally which itself is the third weekend of August, weekend after Sturgis, same place same date as the old AVR. It was wisely suggested that the conversation take place here less someone get all butt hurt that a conversation happened about doing something fun and great for the club and it wasn't posted up here for everyone to shit on, I mean for everyone to see so nobody freaks out about back room closed door politicking. So here it is, at least two of us are trying to step up and create a new VMC annual event. It takes time to collect bids and submit a proposal but we're trying and you heard it here first. Suggestions are welcomed. Bob
  6. I was going to guess Algona.
  7. I don't think so. I once tried to use an exhaust from an 05 on an 07 and it wouldn't work. I think 03-05 and 06-07 are incompatible. If I were you though I'd just call Rylan or Kevin.
  8. Is there an option for us to eat with the group and skip the trinket bags? 190 dollars is awefully steep for one couple that doesn't care much for swag...
  9. We're going out a couple days early to spend some time at Estes. Can't wait!
  10. We're going to spend a couple days in Estes Park before Ft. Collins.
  11. Ping will get louder under a heavier load. If you have ping, then when you roll on full throttle it'll get worse and nearly go away if you ease off the throttle. I would describe the sound as metal clatter of marbles bouncing around in your engine.
  12. I have a Vic Shop 110" kit in mine, and it's fantastic. Roll on in 6th gear is no problem.
  13. I'd venture to guess that the guess you ventured is correct.
  14. It gives you a slightly richer air/fuel mixture.
