    Hey guys, great forum here. Bought my first fuel injected bike last week. Had a million Harleys before, but this 09 Night Train with fuel injection is something completely new to me.

    Wanting to put a set of pipes on but getting lost in this mess of having to remap the computer.

    If I let the dealer do it and pay the labor cost, are they just gonna install the SERT, and match it to my pipes and intake I buy ?

    Or do they "plug it in" to something at the dealership and modify the ECM somehow ?

    Or am I simply better off getting the Vance and Hines FuelPak, or the Dynojet ? And then matching it up to the pipes and intake I get.

    Any input would be mucho welcome.

    Thanks
    Mike

    Find the pipes that you want and then make a choice to buy a FuelPak or have your dealer do a stage 1 updgrade. In either case, be sure that you have the dealer tune it on their dynomometer to optimize performance and fuel use.

    Or can I get by without using one at all and just install the pipes ?

    You can do just pipes but the system will be on the very lean side of the range and should be richened up for proper running. Adding a unit like the TFI will give you a much better running motor.

    Guys, Thank you for all the input. You've been very helpful so far.

    Stupid question part two:
    Leslie and I were just out in the shop smoking and talking about the bike. Been eyeballing a forcewinder type air cleaner. However, her and I both like the stock air cleaner look. And I dig the 96 cubic inches script on it. Makes your (edit) a little bit bigger having that LOL....
    Anyway....Instead of getting some run of the mill forcewinder or spike type air cleaner, can I just put some type of K and N hi flow filter in the stock housing ? If so, anyone have a part number by any chance.

    Thanks a million

    Mike

    Thank you very much. Just what I was looking for. Sorry about the language in my last post last night.
    I had a couple drinks and was typing without editing myself.
