March 5, 2018It`s only getting into the 50s up here but plenty warm enough to ride. A little cool coming home at night but not bad. Beats Montana. Snowiest February on record. Wife is real tired of cold and shoveling snow.

March 7, 2018Still work on the autotune. V&H told me to do at least three 30 minute rides and then you should be good. Each time I do a session it saves it to my FP3. At the last session I saves it with a name like autotune 1 or something like that. I can then add that tune to the ECM. If I don`t like it I can go back to what I had or the stock setting. If it is not perfect I can send it to V&H and they will tweak it and send me a new download to flash the ECM. The bike doesn`t run very good when you first start a autotune session but it gets better as you ride. On my way home from work today will be the third session. I will let you know how that turns out.
March 7, 2018Good deal, Hellcat! It`s a bit of a pain but supposed to be worth it when you`re done. The retune option is the part I like the best. With the SE Pro Tuner I have, if I make any more mods it is back to the dyno to retune. Which means money.
March 8, 2018Tune on the fly sounds to be the way to go, it looks like as smart as folks are about these tuners and engine performance these days that they would have came up with a tuner that would optimize performance as you ride, and if you opted to bust her loose, then the tuner would know to add more tune for increased power and optimize the fuel/air ratio for the best performance under the new conditions.
March 8, 2018Dave, BTW, I still have my SE pro race tuner from my 2010 Roadglide, I guess it is worthless, but have they ever figured away around those things being married to one bike only. I payed big bucks for that thing and I still have it and the cords , all in excellent shape and hardly used.
March 8, 2018VT, it is the best thing, next to a dyno. Which is the best way. No, they are still married to the bike. I let mine go with my Ultra just to be nice. I wish I had the cords back, but I`m just a nice guy I guess.
March 8, 2018Let me tell you it runs like crap when it`s in autotune mode and the bike is cold. Although it does get a little better as you ride. It doesn`t update the fuel map until you flash the ECM.
So it doesn`t really tune on the fly. It reads the O2 sensors and makes changes to the fuel map for each RPM and Throttle setting. It does it separately for each cylinder and stores it somewhere until you flash the ECM. I think I can save 7 different tunes, maybe 8 0-7. Zero being the stock tune from HD. You can always go back to the stock HD tune if you need to. There are some good Youtube video on auto-tuning.
The reason I went with this is because V&H has good customer service and I don`t have to go to the Dyno every time I make a change.
March 8, 2018My Glide runs just fine, but I would like it to be a little better on fuel, has good power and runs pretty smooth most of the time. All I have done to it is, take out the CAT from the header and put DNA megaphone slipon mufflers on it. That is it, no tuning flashing or anything. If I were to do anything else to it, it may be go to true duals , a intake upgrade and a tuner, but I really do not have plans for that right now. Wish I could figure out a way to get the race tuner I currently have to work with this bike, but Harley took care of that up front I guess, so you could not double dip on them and switch tuners around and tune everyones bike with the same tuner. I looked online earlier today nd I saw the Vance and Hines auto tuner for $399 on ebay.
March 8, 2018VT, good deal. They sound like they are good. Some other brands have the same features. I don`t know what Gib paid for his, but that doesn`t seem out of line. Some of the outfits will put a tune in it so it`s close I guess.
March 8, 2018Glad you are happy with yours, Hellcat! Customer service is the key. If I do anything it will be cams/heads, but I`m spending money on guns like they are going out of style so it will be a while. I have no complaints with how it runs, just always want a little bit more!LOL
March 9, 2018I had a PC some number on both my bikes - 90,000 miles and thoroughly enjoyed to little extra horsepower and reliability of it.
March 9, 2018The PCV has the auto tune feature. Not sure about the newer PCIIIs. I was always happy with the bump from my PCIIIs.
