Default Cat out, adding VIED's What to Listen & Look for??

I removed the Cat from my stock 2012/103 head pipe and I ordered FL-VIED-10’s from Night Rider. Once installed, what should I look and listen for to know if my ultra is performing properly?? Not over heating, no Pinging, Plugs look OK…But that’s about all I know. Is there anything else that could be a problem with my type of set up I guess is my real question? The bike has no other mods at all. I’m not an engine guy by any means, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys…

Seat of the pants is really all you can do. If the bike is not pinging and the temps are bearable or its not turning on the heat management and shutting down the rear cyl your OK. By removing the Cat your going to feel less heat off the right side.

The Night Rider Xieds really only trick the ECU in closed loop to add fuel. Closed loop is pretty much your cruising area, no load, not WOT etc. So if you have pinging or problems under acceleration or load conditions you will need a real tuner to sort it out, in most cases with a stock engine even just adding pipes and an A/C will be Ok just not optimal with out a tuner.
