Recent Mods:
1.) Removal of secondary butterflies
2.) Removed the metal screen on the stock intake
3.) Full debaffle of the stock pipes

My Cobra Fi2000r will be arriving tomorrow and I am not sure what setting to start or modify it with...I live at 2600 ft in Boise, ID

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I have the Fi2000 on mine and it should set automatically. It does come with instructions on how to adjust it if needed. I did some debaffle on the pipes and put on the Cobra Air intake. I noticed a difference.

The three pots should already be set for the Vulcan if you bought a new unit. You may experience a slight flat spot when you goose it at a low rpm because the secondary throttle plates are out. Jack up the #1 pot one or two numbers if it does.

It sounds like 4-2-0 is the factory setting from cobra so are you suggesting

5-2-0

Or

4-2-1

Thanks

Sorry Alfonso318, the Fi2000r is a little different. You will need to adjust the yellow LED pot only if you feel there's a pause when you crank open the throttle. That would mean the 2 setting may have to go up to 3.

Got the bike out today after all the rain stopped...what a difference the butterfly removal, stock intake metal sheet removal and Fi2000r made!

The 4-2-0 setting seemed to be ok however I'm not entirely sure thays the most ideal setting...I called Cobra and the said that if it lagged turn up the setting to 4-3-0...I did that and didn't notice much difference...is there a way to see if its the right setting other than feel? Not 100% sure what to look for...

Thanks for the help...very pleased so far!

If the lag is during heavy throttle at low to mid RPM then I would jack up the yellow pot (middle) to 4. It won't hurt anything but your mileage. For me it was more like a flat spot which was overcome when the revs were getting up past mid range.
Seat-of-the-pants dyno is OK but can't beat the real thing. When you're sure you've gone as far with the mods as you want to go for a while, have a professional dyno tuner see what he can do

Im not 100% sure if this is right but i didnt really notice a difference between 4-2-0 and 4-3-0 other than my gas guage dropped like crazy! Perhaps that's cause i was on the throttle the entire time but it seemed a bit excessive...

Should i drop it back down to 4-2-0 then?

I would since you didn't notice much of a change and it doesn't sound like a stumble or distinct lag. Get used to the new setup and ride at 4-2-0 for a while then you can play with it later.
