Hey, guys I was wondering if anyone has ordered an exhaust and a air-intake for their stryker and tried unhooking the battery to reset the computer. That way the computer would read the new mods as they were part of the bike's systems. I have had friends do this with their side-by-sides and it seem to work for them and saved them some money by not having to buy a programmer.

The stock map of the Yamaha will not work. if you have done both of those you need to buy a programmer. The stock Yamaha map cant adjust for the added performance of the exhaust and intake. The computer needs a new map and the cheapest way is with a programmer.

what as a better choice? if your talking exhaust or intake. go with exhaust. if you get an intake you need a programmer. if your talking programmer id go with the cobra powerpro. I'd even recommend a programmer with an exhaust but you can get away with out it just wont see all the performance that it can provide.

Yosemite, sorry my reply wasn't quite clear. I was referenceing to the programmer. I know cobra has two versions of their programmer. There is the Cobra Fi2000 PowrPro which is like $489.95 and also the Cobra Fi2000R Fuel Management which is $194.95. I know the PowrPro is the auto tuner but can the Fi2000R get me the results I need to install the intake and exhaust?

ya any will work. id go with the auto tune that way you never have to mess with it. it will calibrate for altitude and will give you better performance unless you have access to a dyno to program the other one. the only reason i havent done exhaust and intake is because i cant afford the auto tuner yet and not going to bother with anything else.

Just a little FYI. I just installed the FI2000R Closed Loop system yesterday (the cheaper $200 one). I only have the cobra swepts and stock cleaner, but the instructions say that the same mapping can be used no matter which way you go. Ex - Full exhaust w/ intake, full exhaust w/o intake, stock exhaust w/intake. The mapping comes preset, but is ALSO adjustable if you only have a slip on pipe, or even if your exhaust and intake are BOTH stock.

Here's the link: http://www.cobrausa.com/fuel_detail.php?make_id=6&model_id=312&model=Stryker&product_type=Motorcycle Fuel Management&product=Fi2000R&product_id=3016


Click on download instructions and read what it says. ALSO, you can make fine tune adjustment on idle, slow steady throttle, rapid acceleration, and max rpm delivery.

Here's a quote directly from the instructions: "The Fi2000R has the ability to efficiently tune the EFI system on your motorcycle for slip-on or full exhaust systems. Your Cobra Fi2000 fuel injection module has been tested and preset for best function and rideability on a motorcycle with aftermarket air cleaner and Cobra full exhaust"

Seems like this would be a very efficient solution to forking over the big dollars for the auto tune. As long as you have a little bit of time and a small flat head, YOU could be the auto tune :) I have no complaints on mine so far, and I have the low and mean intake adapter on order. I haven't touched the settings on the programmer yet. The throttle response is amazingly better. Hope this info helps out.
