    What kind of TFI do you have? I have a Dobeck 3.5, and for me, the tricky part is running the engine in neutral to change the settings. My controller is in the fuse box, so it is easy to adjust. Try reading this link, if that does not help, call the phone number at the bottom.

    Good Luck!

    Are you having problems, or just want to make some setting changes after install? Dobeck recommends you run a few tanks through the bike to see where you're sitting on the settings...

    I got 28mpg before my TFI, and now I average 33mpg, but it took a bit of work. I use 3 tankfulls to get my "official" result. (and I don't use the tank full where I do my adjusting, because of all the idling it takes me to set the controller.) I called Dobeck a few times, but I couldn't find my notepad about this. I remember that mode 4 should be set to .05 or lower because that is the deceleration mode. I want to improve my mpg but this is my best so far. (Harley Davidson says I should get 34 city & 53 highway mpg on stock, & I have a stage 1.)

    To get the best mpg I also had to stop doing short rides (under 5 miles/15 min) and be sure to warm it up every time. Changing the oil & tranny fluids regularly (Mobile1 for Vtwin & Spectro Platinum) and keeping the tires at the right inflation also helps.

    Good Luck!
