Fuel Management Systems for Dummies (TTS, T-max, PCv)
« on: Thursday, April 29, 2010. 07:04:19 PM. »
If I don't plan on making any other changes in the future, which device would be best for:
2009 Street Glide
RSD venturi air cleaner (K&N filter)
Klock Werks Performance slip ons
Andrews 21 cams
My Indy has experience with the PCv, limited experience with the T-Max and no experience with the TTS.

As always... thanks.

My bikes are all Carb, but if I had a Fuelie I'd be going the TTS route.

Edit: Add links

TTS Mastertune Doc's can be found at http://www.mastertune.net/ and also at the below HTT link,

TTS is the next thing on my shopping list for the '08.

Get the TTS now and use it however your bike's configured.  Follow the Tuning Guide and get it mostly dialed-in yourself.  You maybe will decide you don't need some of that other stuff.  If you don't decide that, you'll be able to vtune faster the next/each time as you make changes.  I feel it makes a significant-enough difference even on an otherwise completely stock bike to merit the expense.

IMHO TTS is "best"
But you answered your own question: My Indy has experience with the PCv, limited experience with the T-Max and no experience with the TTS

Good luck :nix:

Where are you located at?  All are good devices, you just have to find someone competent enough to tune with them......

I'm a six hour ride from Big Boyz in Augusta, Maine. I'm thinking my Indy could load up a TTS canned map which would be good enough for the trip to Big Boyz.

I loaded a canned TTS map into my ECU, and the bike ran better in some ways than with the custom dyno tune map via a SEST map. Of course it needs tweaking via a master tuner, but having been through the SERT, TTS, and that other POS which required cutting the harness, TTS is the way to go.

Using V Tune is not all that hard either - just load a close base map and follow the instructions for data gathering. I popped my laptop into a backpack to avoid vibration in the saddlebags.
