    I got a 09 UC with a set of Rush pipes 1.50 and a large volume air breather.
    Took it to the dealer and had a map down loaded.
    It has a pep in it but run hot in the exhaust area. My pipes are starting to discolor and my leg real hot from the back jug pipe..
    thinking it might be to lean.
    The gas mileage is high thirty right now I have about 3200 mile on her right now ..
    any info would to hear
    thanks..

    The Map/Download will cause you to burn more Gas, that is why you are seeing your Mileage Drop. It may have something to do with the Heat also, someone else may chime in with more info. Did you take any Exhaust Temp readings? The Bikes come from the Factory Running Lean, this is how they are setup.

    The new EPA rules require a lean fuel/air mix and the heat generated is the result of that. The dealer download for mods just returns the mixture to the lean condition. If you use a tuner instead of the download, it can decrease the temps a bit to more tolerable. The discolored pipes is normal for all the newer bikes more so than the older ones.

    Yes ther are many out ther and you will get a variety of opinions from members.You may want to look in the self help section under fuel injection where many of these are explained and make an informed decision.

    I would make the dealer replace the Rush pipes you had installed. If they loaded the wrong map and this was the cause of the engine running hot that in turn caused the mufflers to turn blue, it would seem to me they should repair any damage that the wrong map caused.
