    Good day all....does adding a TFI unit to stock bike make sense...want to cool it down a bit and add some fuel...was wondering if this is goiing to make a difference without air cleaner or pipe change. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Yes, you will notice a better running bike even with the stock exhaust and intake. The factory/EPA has these bikes running very lean.

    The TFI can be reset to include any updates to the exhaust or intake at a later time.

    When I did my Stage 1, I foolishly paid for the HD std. 1450 Stage 1 upgrade to the ECM (of course that was before I had found HDTalking!!). Now I am about to do the roller chain conversion (you don't have to worry about that one!) on my '03 UC and am adding different cams in the process. The TFI arrived in the mail the other day from Dobeck Perf.!! Just waiting on a few more bits, and then I start this little project!

    TQ

    TFI is for sure the way to go .. easy to tune .. I would go with it esp if you plan on upgrades later ..
