Hi all! First of all, I just wanted to say "hello" to everyone here, I just joined the VTXOA a few days ago. I've spent the last few days just checking out posts, reading on the "garage", and trying to gain some knowledge. I am a recent vtx owner (my wife actually bought me the bike for my 30th birthday...yeah, I know how lucky I am) and am trying to come up to speed. The bike already had a hypercharger on it, and I purchased some V&H Bigshots this week. I installed them yesterday, ordered a PC today, but am having trouble finding an exact match anywhere for my setup. Any help from anyone? Is an EXACT match necessary? Oh, and my bike is an '03 1800C. Thanks very much in advance for any help or comments!!!! :D

Your best way to go is have a custom map done for your engine and modifications. Find a good shop that uses a load dyno and air/fuel sniffers to get exhaust readings. If they don't have both of these, all they are doing is downloading a map and guessing where your PC3 should add or subtract fuel.

Welcome to the board!
Bookmark or save to your favorites folder, these websites, http://tech.vtxoa.com This is the VTXOA Garage, a sister site to this message board and contains all your How-to/Tips/Tricks/Why’s and links to other helpful sites for your new VTX. http://www.bareasschoppers.com/ A fellow VTX Riders site that has many write-ups on “How-To” do work on the VTX. Also, for you 1300 guys http://www.vtx1300tips.com/ another fellow VTX Riders site.

There is also a helpful red Search icon at the top of every page(not the Google search)
Search Query section
Search for Key Words;__________________________

Below that click on the "Search for All Terms" button, effectively unchecking the default selection of "Search for any terms or use query as entered"


Search Options section
Select 1, and only 1 "Forum" to search in at a time, or at all.
For example, "Best airbox" I would only search in the "1800 Tech Board"



That's the basic way, you can limit further by using some of the other "Drop-Down" menu's like if you know the thread you are looking for is only a week or so old, etc....

Now that you have a list of threads you've searched for, do not just click on the thread you want to read. Instead RIGHT click on the thread and select "Open in New Window" This will pop up a new window with that thread in it, leaving your searched list intact for you to go back to.

The purpose of the "Search" is to offer a member the opportunity to research his/her question better. There is so much information from past threads that you may never see because that member is no longer here, or doesn't see your new post, or just won't respond to the same question. So use it to your advantage and enjoy the board! View this funny and informative film about posting and searching…

Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the forum. At the top of every board there are threads that are tagged as "Sticky" These threads are "Sticky" because they contain very important/valuable information about the VTX and everyone should read them.
The thread at the top of the 1800 tech board called, "Air, Fuel, Motors..." will answer most of the performance questions...

Also, update your Profile to include where you live and what type X you have to your Signature line. I.E. 1300/1800/C/F/N/R/S.

B&B

Take a look at the B&B closed feedback fuel regulator. I don't have one but the more I read I wish I did. I believe you add a wideband O2 sensor to the bung in your exhaust and it adjusts your fuel injection continuously based on these readings. I think the cool thing about this would be that you wouldn't have to get a dyno run everytime you decided to modify something that might affect the F/A ration. Biglry knows a lot about them.

It is NOT a wideband O2 sensor it is NARROW band.
BIG DIFFERANCE and I doubt it does correct continuously.
you really need to see proof and not just read

had the same problem. i used 122-022 and found that it sucked. check my recent post concerning it. i'll have the dyno map posted hopefully tonight.
my setup is 06 neo 1800 with vh bigshots no baffles (pretty darn close to with baffles as far as mapping goes) and proseries hypercharger with pc3 and lcd controller.

if you use that map, richen it out TONS....

if you can, wait till i post the map. it's on the money.
