Nice gain for not even messing with ignition timing! I think these motors have a lot of untapped potential in them, just got to find the right combination to do it. The right intake, exhaust & remap will make a huge difference. My 09 Vmax was 176hp/115tq stock. Velocity stacks with K&Ns, cat removed and a Holeshot exhaust & ECU reflashed it put down 197hp/126tq. This big 6 with similar mods and a map for 93 octane should make some very impressive numbers!

Wow something like that could really be a deal breaker !!! I sure hope nothing like that ever happens with any GL1800

This is why I wanted to go this route instead of the aftermarket cut the wires and tap in type setup with an power commander... This is the factory computer just updated by DON

Power Commanders have not required cutting/tapping of any wires for several years. You unplug the factory ECM and plug the PC into its male/female connectors.

What year bike is this?
..06-10 or 12 and newer?
(rumor has it that 12 and up are slower than 10 and earlier is the reason I'm asking)

Thanks,

Map

Hey Fred,
When he gets to testing timing changes, he may want to try with standard 87 octane and then rerun using 89 octane. That may allow a little more increase.
