Performance Upgraded

I just added the following to my VN900:
1. Vance & Hines Slash/Staggered Pipes

2. Cobra Fi2000 PowerPro - Fuel Processor, more expensive, but I didn't have to program or dyno it, automatically tunes 80 times per second for the best fuel/air mixture

3. Big Barron Air Kit

I'm very pleased with the performance of my VN900 now, the throttle response and low end torque is greatly improved.
I did all the work myself, It took me less than 2 hours to install these upgrades.

I recommend these upgrades to anyone whom want's increased performance.

Thumbs up PowerPro

whiting57,
I can't get over how well my VN 900 performs with the PowerPro.
I was considering selling it and getting a Mean Streak 1600, but now I'm very happy with my VN 900, so I will probably have it for at least 5 years.

i thank Mr Ken Dawg who put me onto it when i added my hypercharger ... while it isnt the cheapest processor around, by the time you buy a power commander and get a dyno run, its well with in the $$$'s ball park.

While i still run stock pipes, I just wanted the bike to run well, it does exactly that, it pulls hard, runs smoother and does exactly as advertised. No maps, no popping and no Texas kawboy butt whipping for Ken (private joke) actually i might just have to buy him a beer.

A happy bike is a happy rider.

It's interesting how forums differ on opinions. I have a Honda VTX1800 as well as my VN900 so am looking at the VTXOA forum as much as this one. Right now there's a big difference of opinion raging about the Powrpro over there. Seems the old-school boys don't want to consider this being anything more than a wet dream and those who are progressive thinkers and installed the unit are raving about it. Mine is waiting for me when I get back to the States in a couple of months. It's for my VTX and will take the place of my aging PCIII. I'll post the results here just as a point of comparison.

I just ordered a Cobra PowrPro to replace my G-man bully tuner.

For those guys that have the PowrPro, did you have another fuel tuner before?

Is there much of a difference in performance?
