Im planning to change my exhaust but was wondering if you need to do anything else like a fuel processor, or is that just for better performance. This is my 1st bike and I have alot to learn..

Welcome to the forum Rookie, I know you have lots of questions and you can see from that link that daRe put in his post that I had a lot of questions also, you can see in a month or so I have had a lot of questions as I have posted 200 and something posts. I have learned a lot of good things from the guys around here so feel free if your stuck and don't know where to find something let someone know and we'll help you out.

Well it's going to help us answer your question by what kind of exhaust you plan on getting, Cobra with baffles you shouldn't need a fuel controller, Cobra without baffles you will need one, it's probably best to just buy a FC up front if you can and that way if you add something later like a Spike Air Intake you'll already have the FC because regardless of which exhaust you have if you put on an aftermarket air intake you'll need a FC. I don't know how much you know about FC's but I have read a lot on this forum about them and all your going to get is opinions because there is no straight answer on which one is the best, just get what you can afford, I just bought mine <Cobra Fi2000R> off of eBay for $195 shipped so that was the best price I had seen so I got that. Lots of good information in that link that daRe posted and not just because I started it but because all the guys answered a lot of the questions I had and I'm sure you're going to have a lot of the same questions, but if you have a question that you don't see in there and can't find, post a message and someone will point you in the right direction.

Save yourself a bunch of headache and hassle; get a Cobra Fi2000R. It's a simple, plug-and-play install, and you won't have to go looking for maps, hook up to computers, make a dozen phone calls to the supplier, or end up on a dyno to get it right. Unless you're a masochist and just like to torture yourself. LOL.

Cheers

PS: Also, plug off your PAIR Valve so you don't have to send another 10 posts asking, "Why's it popping?".

lmfao BarFury, We like like it around here so much we just want to post a lot. Speaking of that man it seems like thats all I have been doing today, I looked at the list of new posts and my name was in like the first six threads lol, boredom at it's best. Well I'm going to see how things run without doing the pair valve mod, if I get popping and stuff I'll search for that post, I remember seeing it but don't remember exactly what to do, looked a little time consuming though for us novices. Yeah I agree about the Fi2000R that's why I got it and I emailed Cobra and they said if I needed help adjusting it that they would help even if I bought the FC from someone else.

X_KIOWA; Took me a little bit to find it (I posted it some while ago), but here it is:

A simple, quickly reversible (come emissions-testing time) solution to the PAIR-valve/decel-popping problem is to go to your local ACE Hardware or bearing store, purchase a 9/16-inch (0.5625") ball bearing and shove it into the intake hose that goes to the PAIR-valve. Come time for the E-test, you just pop the ball out, hook up the hose, go do the E-test, then put the ball back in. Using a short (2-inch) piece of same-size fuel hose, I ball-plugged mine right at the PAIR-valve, keeping my stock hose for possible later use; outa' sight, outa' mind. Simple, huh?

Cheers

Damn that seems a lot easier to do than the pair valve plate thing that I remember seeing posted before. I'm going to have to search for thread that you did, by chance is their pictures of all that in that thread? Sure hope so as I'm totally lost when it comes to something like that, but I'll search and see if I can find that thread, thanks!

On VTXs that method has caused some condensate problems for a few riders. If you do this, plug #6 in the pic Ohio, Florida, Honda, Parts, Accessories, dealer, Honda Direct LIne (#2 is the piece that was replaced in the emissions recall)

Nah, I didn't do any pictures; I thought the explanation was simple enough.

yes sir that is simple if that's all I have to do is block that one hose. so after blocking that hose do I unconnect it or just leave it connected but blocked or doesn't matter?

Sorry, had to read it twice to understand your question; then I noticed that you're using the L & M Black Semi-Gloss Adapter, which will come with two small filters, one for the crankcase breather, and the other for the PAIR Valve. So, instead of hooking-up the provided PAIR Valve filter, you'd simply cut the stock PAIR Valve hose at the PAIR Valve (leave about 2" sticking out), shove in the 9/16" ball, and you're done. By the way, I have the L&M Chrome Adaptor and that's how I did it. Now does it make sense?

What the hell time is it there anyway? You must be staying up all night!

Cheers

yeah that makes sense, I appreciate the easier method of doing this instead of the pair valve plate mod, this is was easier. Yeah it's pretty late, it's 0215 but I am up because I still had some work going on but I'm about to be finished for the night soon, have to get my beauty rest and lord knows I need plenty of that lol. Thanks again for the updated mod!
