Nightrider XIED-How cool?

Spent multiple hours reading everything I could find on IEDs since reading about them here this morning. I was ready to buy a catless head pipe with the goal of getting rid of as much heat as I could. I want to stay as stock as possible at least until after my summer trip as I don't want any warranty questions in some remote town.

So how well do the IEDs work? I understand the concept which makes sense and I could remove them if any problem occurs. But how much cooler will the heat be? It's a small enough investment, but are the gains worth it or should I just go with the new head pipe which a unfamiliar dealer could give me a hard time about if any problems arise?

So please share your thoughts and experiences with the Nightider IED or the FL-VIED.

Thanks, Mark

Go on the Night Rider site( http://www.nightrider.com/parts/). They have all that info listed. They say about 25 degree drop for a 2010. Also your going to have to get the CAT out of the house to really ride cool. I'm thinking of a quick cut and weld myself.

Cat

Also I believe that you my not want to richin the system until you get rid of the CAT . The CAT my not get Hot enough to burn off the by-products and start to clog the CAT it-self. Not sure of actual CAT. specs . Just thinking out loud

Installed the variable IED's last summer on 2010, stock AC with nightstick. Adjusted to 14.1. Fuel milage dropped 5 MPG's. Bike ran well. Could not tell if there was any heat reduction. Over this past winter which hasn't ended, I cut the cat out and rewelded headpipe. Haven't been able to test ride yet. Like you, I prefer to keep bike close to stock until warranty is up. Next year I'll go with air cleaner and Race Tuner. I really like the Nightstick with a few extra disks.

25* where? oil temp, head temp, exhaust temp? I don't think 25* is going to make much difference either way.

25* on the oil temp is a big difference.

On my 2010 FLTRX I installed the XIED's as well as the Jackpot 2-1 headpipe.
The oil temps lowered 25-30*. That is on an 85-90 degree day.
Well worth the effort.

Edit: I also have the download for the stage I, 103.

Ride Safe,
Vettster

My understanding is the stage 1 download increases the rev limit and adjusts the ignition timing. It does not add more fuel. I think it keeps the air/fuel ratio the same. Am I wrong on this?

My thought on the downloads from a dealer is that they aren't going to alter the AFR much if any at all .. Because of who they are .. They dont wanna get busted altering the emissions .. Mebbe I am wrong , but I dont think so ..
