'02 Ultra upgrade
« on: November 11, 2019, 07:49:06 PM »
I have a '02 Ultra purchased new with a Stage 1 flash, SE A/C and SE Slip-ons. Stopped by the dealer on Friday for a primary chain inspection cover gasket and while there asked about a Stage Two flash and if they were available. counter person smiled and said nope, we won't even work on anything that old.
 So I will be going to my local Indi shop to have  my engine upgraded a bit. I am considering the S&S 509G gear drive system with oil pump. I will retain the stock pushrods and have rockouts installed while disassembled. I figure I wont have to worry about adjusting rods.
What recommendations can you make for fuel injection and ignition mods? Has anyone used a Police ECM? Is DynoJet the way to go? Other options? I am not increasing compression or displacement.
Thanks, I appreciate all feedback.

Look at a tuner that will allow the best adjustment.  You'll likely get a few suggestions from tuners with experience.  Not what you asked, but you may want to check your crank run-out before buying those gear drive cams.

Run out of less than 0.003 will be checked before final decision. I am keeping my fingers crossed or the other option is the 509C kit.

Not familiar at all with tuners and not a computer savy kind of guy. Other bike ('96)has  a Mik42 and Dyna2000 Singlefire Ignition and RB Racing 2 into 1. with A/F ratio gauge.

Find a reputable tuning shop and go with their recommendation on the brand of tuner to use.
I prefer an interesting vice to a boring virtue.

  • Are absolute statements always false?

2002 is Delphi, so TTS, Power Vision, and Direct Link are all options.
Ignorance is bliss, and accuracy expensive. How much of either can you afford?

And pay for a proper Dyno tune, rather than just a canned map "stage 2" flash.

Well I had the work done finally. Run-out was at 0.003 so I went with the S&S 509C kit with adjustable pushrods and new precision lifters. Rock-outs installed and a TTS tuner installed. Spent a bit of time on the Dyno ($450) but she is tuned. Replaced intake manifold gaskets while apart. Just waiting for some nice weather to try her out. Pouring rain out here in AZ.
Thanks to all for the responses. Much appreciated.
