    It will run better with it than without it. Even with the proper download from the dealer, it's still on the lean side.

    I'm planning on leaving on a trip of a couple thousand miles. I have a stock 2010 FLHX and am thinking of going to the TFI when I get back. ( I've spent enough already this year ). Should I have any concerns about traveling that far with the bike stock LEAN

    There are plenty of stock bikes out there with many thousand reliable miles on them. Enjoy your trip and when you get back do the Stage 1 upgrade with the TFI and then enjoy the power, cooler running engine and wish you had done it sooner.

    Be safe...

    Do you know the previous history of the bike? Has it ever been dyno'd? If it was dyno'd with a SERT (race tuner), the race tuner would be removed after the dyno and therefore would be no evidence left on the bike for you to find. Might be worth checking with the previous owner or HD shop that set it up.

    This is a Good answer/question for the original Thread Posted..

    I agree to CHECK before you Spend on another product You Might NOT need..

    If NO fuel management is on the bike and only a download I Would Get the TFI,, IT Will Run Better!

    Many discounts are available for TFI so CHECK discounts BEFORE you order and see IF you qualify. Make sure you tell the TFI order person FULL details on Your bike, so you get the RIGHT TFI....
