Very nice. All my wife gave me for Christmas was a hard time and a little coal.

BAK looks great, I'd do a bit more research on the fuel controller though.

From everything I was told when I done mine the ECM can handle an exhaust but not a bigger air intake.

The Barons website and everything I read said fuel injected bikes dont need it with stock exhaust. I called and spoke to a rep at Dennis Kirk and Barons and both confirmed it for me. I will let you guys know if I have any issues from not having a fuel management system.

I know this thread hasnt been touched for three months, Just wanted to give you guys an update. The Big Air Kit looked awesome and sounded great. But, I had to go back to the stock filter set-up. They say you dont need a fuel management system with it. And by all accounts they are right. The Bike ran fine no lack of power or back-firing. But my gas mileage went completely to hell. I average 49-56 MPGs normally. I was lucky to clear 26 MPGs with the barons.... I gave it three full tanks of gas to make sure it wasnt just me. And sure enough just over 100 miles had to fill back up. After the stock filter was back on I have 89 miles on this tank and only one bar has moved on the gauge.... So word of advice you dont "need" a full processor but I am sure it will pay for itself in fuel savings before too long.

Thanks for the followup. That is good to know for those of us who might be thinking about doing it.

Seriously?! Wow I put mine on after I bought it for myself for xmas, and I absolutely love it. I've got a Power Commander, and V&H Cruzers so maybe thats helping, but I finally got to take it out for a nice solid hour drive the other day, and the throttle response is amazing! My bike takes off like a Ferrari now, and I gotta say my gas guage was at 3/4 when I started my ride, and hadn't budged much by the end of my 40-50 mile ride. Doesn't appear to have affected my mileage much, if at all. You definitely need a fuel management system with it to get the best out of performance, and mileage... got a birthday coming up??

Yeah, I really do love the look ad the performance was great. But without a fuel management system it was getting worse mileage then my cage. Unfortunately my Birthday isnt til Nov (hence my screen name) and I think the next mod for the the bike in the hundreds of dollars range is a Kruz Drive or DJ. Which ever I can find.

I might sell it. I have one person who PM'd me earlier today. But he is in Australia and shipping is alot so I dont know if he will want to pay for it. If not you are next inline. But, you will have to check and see if it will fit your bike. I will have to figure out the price I would take for it as well. PM me so I know you are next inline if it will fit your bike.
