    Your ECM and the tuner needs a little time to adjust to what you have down loaded and changed. Just did some upgrades and after the 3rd tank it's running a little better.

    As crazy as it sounds, the tuner needs a little break in and has a learning curve before it operate at it's optimal performance ability. After initial break in the most changes should be immediate.

    Ok so I have ran 2 tanks of fuel through my bike since I put a tune on it. Upon inspection of my plugs they are still white on the electrode and the bottom 3 threads or so are black. I've read its tough with these new motors its had to gauge how rich or lean it is just by looking at the plugs ... Any thoughts?

    After reading opinions and experiences of others looking for information on the Vance and Hines FP3 and my simple setup I forged my own path, nothing spectacular but its complete. I called V&H to find out which of their slip ons would most closely match my Cobra Neighbor Haters, a few minutes on hold (like calling any other big company) I was told to choose the V&H Eliminator 400s. I installed the FP3 which took all of 3 minutes. Once activated via Bluetooth the FP3 automatically updated itself with the most recent firmware. Following the simple instructions I was on the road in 15 minutes. It was like riding a new 2017 Street Glide Special all over again. Great throttle response and huge reduction in engine heat.

    I agree with hulkss!
    To read a plug correctly the ignition must be shut off at the rpm that you want to read. If you ride the bike hard on the highway then tool through your neighborhood and idle into your garage your plugs will reflect slow speed and idle more so than your highway time.
    This from several old school hot rod builders and tuners and the occasional plug reading guide in Hot Rod Mag and others etc.
    Plug reading in today's world of electronic ignitions is more apt to be used to determine the correct heat range or signs of oil consumption than air-fuel ratio management.
