    What has been the experience when installing this piece without retuning? My parts guy says that without installing SE mufflers and retuning, that there is no increase in performance. I have read in American Iron and some other pubs that it is not necessary to retune after the air cleaner up grade? I realize that this post has probably been up before but I am a new user and couldn't find a previous post that answered my question.





    08 Road King, no modifications, all stock.

    on a 08 you can get aways with air cleaner or slip ons not both .. if you just want air cleaner you can get away with it .. would run better with a retune either dealer download or a aftermarket fuel device

    I rode mine with XIED's and slipons for a few months, when I added the SE air cleaner I also added the TFI, I am very pleased with it.

    these new bikes run lean as they are from the factory. As Bud said you can do either pipes or a/c but not both with out a stage 1 download or fuel management. you would not gain anything by putting on just a high flow a/c and i think it would make the bike run even more lean than it already is.
