    After riding an hour or so on an 80 degree plus day it is difficult to restart my 2007 FatBoy. Is this because it needs to have the EFI remapped? If so, how about the air cleaner and exhaust pipes?

    Huge difference on my Fatboy after adding rhinehart slip ons, se air cleaner and TFI, runs much better, much cooler, more power and cools down faster. That in combination with Mobil 1 synthetic in the engine and Spectro transmission fluid and Primary fluid - makes a BIG difference.

    Just did the TFI on my 08 Fatboy last weekend... I was hoping to keep the temps down, even if just a little - I was pleasantly suprised with the overall improvements on how she runs (I do run the Mobil 1 synthetic, which was the other significant improvement switching from the factory stuff).

    Was thinking about doing intake and exhaust this summer, but now I'm thinking about holding off and running as it for a while.

    I was thinking oil cooler as well, lots of bikes in Spain have them,
    if I was staying I would put one one as well.

    but, an 80 degree day isnt really that hot, so maybe look at the fuel.
