Replacing Stock Air Intake

Looking to replace the stock air intake on my '09 Tourer. Thinking a hyper charger or maybe the cone style filter. Have Roadburner 2-1 exhaust and a Cobra Fi2000 fuel processor installed.

Question is: If I install a hyper charger or other air filter, will I have to make any kind of adjustments or would this be more of a plug and play style ordeal? This is my first fuel injected bike so I am unsure of what would need to be done.

Only thing you'll have to do is adjust the pot settings on your fuel processor. The open air filter kit will be the most noticeable upgrade performance wise, at least it was for me on my 950.

you probably won't have to make any adjustments. from what most people post online, the hypercharger provides no noticeable gains in performance which means it's not likely adding any extra air to your fuel/air mix. and just changing the filter shouldn't change your mixture enough either. but putting on just about any other air intake kit and you probably will need to adjust your cobra settings.

On the V Star 1300 a gain of 10 H.P is noticed and this is without a fuel tuner, on the 950 units it is about 9 H.P. I would stay away from the Kuryakyn Hypercharger, many have had issues with them with the silly butterfly valves that open or close. But any open air intake will result in performance gains.

I did some research when I bought my BAK. Was originally thinking of using a hyper charger just because I liked the looks but everything I read pouted away from it and to an open air kit.

I have K&N "pods" on my VS1100 which added noticeably to power and make the stock 'air intake' non-functional and purely a cosmetic decision (fwiw, I like a more 'naked' look, so just took mine off).

Opted for the hypercharger. Not real concerned about more power, more looks. Got this in today and installed with minor issues.

Yep, I've always liked the look of that.

Hello. Anybody here? I'm going to resurrect this thread and hope. I tried every search I could think of, and finally this one at least seems to have the smallest of relevance. I'm having an issue with my 2007 1300 with hypercharger. Got it used and The butterfly valves are always open. I live in Florida and Ride rain or shine. Do the open butterfly valves suck in water? I don't see an obvious vacuum line. where is one and where does it go on the hypercharger? and, if I attach one, I assume the vacuum opens the valves, how to I make them default closed?

TIA.
