What's Next....

Well, I have had my 13 FLTRU for one week. I have taken out the Cat, put in a S&S Stealth air cleaner. Added a rack on the Tour Pak. Taken off the rear shift lever. Drilled a hole in the gas cap cover for the mounting of my GPS. Removed the two bottom snaps on each of the lowers storage and replaced with bolts to make it hinge without un-snapping during riding. Removed the passenger hand strap so I can get the seat off easy. ordered a siren from ebay for the security. Reset the PIN for a FOB-less start.

Is there anything that comes to mind that would be a quick and cheap improvement.

Did I word this question in the wrong manner? I thought a bunch of you would chime in and tell me some other things about FLTRU's that needed personalized, i.e. siren. great idea, remove cat, great idea, upgrade air cleaner, great idea. All came from reading on this site. Thanks so much.

So I did the stage 1 HD air cleaner. It's the cheapest way to get better performance and its u det 200. FP3!!!!!! Can't say it enough. Love this thing....cut the baffles out of my pipes....really don't wanna play with the cat as I can't weld and there is a guy on eBay selling for 100. I tipped my bars as far as they would go with out touching in at full lock. Get the thumb screw for the seat. Ram xmount for the fon...I run the fp3 and you can get all kinds of data from that thing. Mpg....like a bunch of different ones.

You didn't mention any kind of tuner. You're not going to just ride it after changing the air flow in and out are you?

I was planning on riding it. I don't know anything about a tuner. Is there a good link to discussion on tuners? I took it out and ran it up to 100 and it just runs GREAT! I love this bike. I will tell you straight up... I no fan of taking my bike into a HD shop. This is my 3rd Harley and none have seen the inside of a HD shop.
FP3??? have no idea what it is and what it would do.
