So it's been almost a month and I figured I would post to let the folks here know where i settled on the fuel management system.
I have cruise set at 5 and left the accelerate at .8. With the acceleration at the factory setting of 1.2 there was a fairly consistent hesitation if I jumped on it between 1st and 2nd gear, every other shift there was no hesitation. The adjustment down cleaned it up so the only thing I can think of it was just pushing to much fuel and was bogging down.
After talking Rick, the gentlemen that essentially programmed the FMS he suggested that I up the cruise to 5 reduce the decel pop. It did work pretty well, I still have some mild popping but it's the nature of the beast with the Cobra swept over factory exhaust.
He did tell me something pretty interesting, that the module is really for the pipes and have very little to do with the Cobra intake. If your looking for real help with this unit the tech's a Cobra, specifically Andre offer nothing but arguments. All this gentlemen did was repeatedly tell me to read their article on decel pop after I told him on five different occasions I read it. Blamed the bike, the dealer installation and offered very little assistance. He was a fairly arrogant and unhelpful SOB.
Anyway the system is working well, bike runs pretty damn clean and I get 41 to 47 MPG depending on where and how I ride.
Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window
