Formal Introductions

Greetings from Clovis, CA. I own a 2006 Roadliner S and have been a member for a while, but have not posted before.
I haven't had much luck posting a profile image, so bare with me, I have a pearl white liner with Corbin hard bags, batwing, chin spoiler and their single seat with backrest.
I have added a set of Hard Krome exhaust that I had ceramic coated a flat black color. I replaced the rear seat with Yamaha luggage rack.
I have added a Power Commander and K&N air filter plus had the bike on the dyno to tune.

Hope that gives you a picture (mind only) of what I am enjoying.

A picture is worth, well.....u-no (you know)
(couldn't resist)

Sounds like a very nice ride Yukonjack. As everyone else, sure would like to see some pics. Welcome to the forum, and I'll start you off answering a question if you would, sir.

'09 Strat, stock, just bought it, new, less than 4 months ago. I was leaning on Hard Krome 3" with the K&N air filter and Power Commander. I have since started looking at a 2 into 1 setup (clearance and performance). My question is; How much better than stock did you end up with? I see you had it on a Dyno as well. ANY help is very much appreciated.

09 Strat (Pheobe) New 4-17-12

When Rapture happens...Hope I'm riding my scooter; From something great, to something AWESOME!

Stuntman, best answer I can give is the info from the dyno printout.
RPM MPH BHP Ft/lbs
20 45.7 35.26 92.56
30 68.7 61.77 107.95
40 91.6 75.77 99.31
50 114.1 77.06 81.04
It takes about 4 hours of dyno time but you will sure notice a big difference. My tuner worked it so most of the improvement was in the middle to upper end of throttle. Of course the transition from stock pipe to HK's and Power Commander was a big change overall to both sound and performance. Although it did increase the "popping" when shifting from 1st to 2nd, especially when engine is cold. Have to really try and roll off the throttle all the way between shifts to minimize pops.
I had the HK's ceramic coated a flat black color and must say it sets off the pipes against my white paint job. Plus I don't have to spend time to polish them.
