Tuner took a crap

Well my tuner (RCXcelerator) died so I removed it. Have to wait couple months for fundage to get a new one now. I currently run screaming eagle stage 1 air on it and wondering if I should put back on the original air filter system until I get a new tuner or just run it like that? BTW I have slip ons but no header. Any thoughts?

I'm certain that HP/Tq is dependent upon proper A/F ratio, not just raw air flow, so I think you may well be loosing HP/Tq with the hi-cap filter and no tuner since now you're running too lean for sure (even leaner than the stock EPA crap - not good). Therefore I would revert to stock filter.

Bring 'em home or send us back!!

I'm checking tuner warranty but am going with something different for sure. My concern is to put original air back for now or not.

I have the same tuner so I'd like to know what happened. Did it just die or is it having intermittent issues?

For all the longer it wold take to convert it back I would reinstall the original air filter just for peace of mind . Knowing how lean they are for EPA regs , It makes more sense than worrying each time your riding if your doing damage.

Put the stock equipment on before you do any harm.

Mr. Smiley- It wouldn't idle less than 3000 rpms and I guess just stopped tuning. I would give throttle and it still wouldn't go under 3000

Are you sure its the tuner? Or did you just loose that cap on the port on top of the throttle body?
