    You'll notice a bit of a difference with the K&N and the fuel pac over stock.
    Glad to have been of help.

    The new derby cover bolts had locking seal on the threads already so I installed them that way.

    Sure it wasn't a sealant only?

    Years back they use to have sealing washers under the heads.

    No, the cover has a rubber gasket about 3" in dia. mounted to the casing. The oil is sealed there. Found out when I removed the old cover and the oil leaked a little once I removed the cover. I wondered about that because there was no gasket around the outer bolt pattern but I knew it was in there. Had to have my wife tip the bike as I changed it out. Looks good though. It was the piece in the collection I needed, so I now wait to see if they make any new "Flame Collection" pieces for the Newer Sportys.

    AAAAWSOOOME!!! Installed the V&H Fuelpack and the K&N high flow a few hours ago. Started up first crank, took a ride up to Scotts Valley to see my buddy and pick up some things for our ride to Sonora tomorrow. Ran like a dragster! I am extremely happy with my decision.

    GLIDER...Do you have an idea how I can get explanations of what the codes mean. I would like to be able to "fine tune" to my own needs.

    Thanx!

    Not sure what you mean about the codes and tuning to your own needs but take a look here, Not absolutely sure these will work on the sporty but give it a try being it's an 07.

    Many say it is not necessary with the 02 sensors. Keep in mind that the 02 sensors only work to richen things up in the cruise range and not at the bottom or top end, they are also narrow band so they have their limits also. IMHO your bike will run a LOT better with some fuel management like a TFI or similar unit. Then you can add the low restriction K&N intake and make the package complete and it will run much better than stock.

    These 07 bikes run VERY lean and even adding the mufflers ,makes it a bit leaner too.

    Even if you are only doing the mufflers, the TFI will make it run much better. It is a plug and play unit that you can install yourself if you have just basic tools and knowledge about bikes.

    The dealer download will work too but that is also lean to begin with because of EPA. There are a lot of bikes with the dealer download in them. Lean is hot and not the best performance.

    There are 33 codes that are entered into the computer depending on the type of pipes installed on the bike. A cross reference is in the instructions but no explanation of what they do except the throttle %, (0-99).
