    2016 Softail Deluxe with Vance & Hines true duals, map or not?

    We ordered and installed true duals on my wifes Softail, Vance and HInes, that is all the mods we did. Stock air breather. Should we get it updated in the mapping? System has the oxygen sensors in head pipes.

    robert - whenever you improve air flow (breather or exhaust) you should re-map as either of these will permit more air flow thus creating the likelihood of the bike running lean.

    If you choose not to, keep a very very close watch on your plugs - light tan to greyish is in the ideal range - white to whiter is bad (lean - bike often runs too hot and can cause serious internal problems)


    Hope this helps
