I went down to Sydney today about 166 klms each way . Of course after spending all yesterday cleaning the bike and polishing all the chrome it rained all the way down to Sydney then just before I arrived at the dealership in Sydney a dump truck full of white slushy type mud had s......t  loads of it running out of tieback and all over my bike , that made me so happy ( not ). I had Indian Sydney install the stage 2 cams, I had already bought the stage one exhaust and hi-flow air filter when I bought the bike. I also had the first service at the same time. They did all the software updates as they do I was amazed how many updates they had to do ,so it appears my dealership where I bought the bike did not do them all ,The guys also replace the Carbon Canister as it has a recall TSB . I was not excepting any great improvement in power as the stats say a increase of around 13% H.P and 7% Torque.I understood the real benefit would be the torque and I have to say I am happy with that side of the upgrade so far. I loved the ride back to Newcastle, even in the pouring rain. Like a lot here have said the factory Tune for the stage 2 is ok but it is a generic tune ,so the bikes booked into he local dealership in 5 days time to have the Power Vision installed and Dyno Tuned to smooth out any rough sections of the standard Indian stage 2 tune. They want the bike for 2 days to make sure they do each and every section of the mapping as I requested that they don't skip nays I get the best and smoothest delivery possible, I am happy with the bike to date and looking forward to having the last bit of my upgrade done. It was big day leaving home around 5am then having a truck on its side on the F3 slowed things up then left the bike for about 6 hours and went into Sydney city for lunch ,after getting home about 6 pm I had to take the love child aka the dog for his nightly walk to empty out and allow the bike to cool off before washing it ,drying it with the blower and chamois in the dark lol. I think I got it all ,tomorrow will tell the truth on how clean the bike really is .

Congratulations gc3!!  Enjoy your Stage 2 Cams.  The best part for me was the idle sound.

I would be interested to know if your Stage 2 tune pings on hot days.  Over 33-degrees, my Stage 2 (with the Indian factory tune) use to ping its head off at every set of lights, taking off moderately-hard in 1st gear.  Although I experimented with 95-octane petrol, it would still ping (not as badly) with 98-octane petrol as well.

Thanks I don't think it will bother me much for long as I have the bike booked for a Power Vision and Custom Dyno tune in 5 days time. It was really humid coming back from Sydney and lots of bumper to bumper traffic that made the engine run hot as they do and had no evidence of anything with the tune.I have heard that Indian had redone their stage 2 tuning cards. I don't know if that true or not but for now it is what it is till the Power Vision and Dyno are done. I only ever run 98 Ron and Caltex fuel in my bikes and if I can't get Caltex for any reason I got with BP or Mobil , I never use Shell as a lot of bike dealers say not to use it.

Good to hear the bike is running well.

I drove to Wollongong yesterday (the rain made me take the car over the bike) and passed that truck on it's side. The funniest thing I've seen in a long time was what was on its roof.

First a bit of info for the others - we were heading south on the M1 and the truck had been heading north. He was in the right hand lane and must have swerved out over the shoulder and into the soft grass area and his wheels sunk into the mud and he just rolled over onto his right side. The roof of the truck was facing us as we went south.

Written on the roof of the truck, normally for the benefit of helicopters or birds, was the slogan "Perfect Care" or words to that effect. 🙂

It's a pity it wasn't in a place more suitable to stop and take a photo.
Cheers, Kim.

Wow Kim I went to Sydney yesterday in the rain to have the cams and service done . The same thing on the F3 there was a. med ridge truck on it side and caused a big hold up, thank god for being allowed to lane split saved about a 50 min wait from the traffic being held up.

I got the bike back this morning after 2 days of allowing the Power Vision and Dyno and have to say the bike runs nice and smooth as I expected along with great torque ,I was never cashing high H.P. so happy with the fact the torque gave me the results I wanted along with the rev limiter being raised. I always wanted the rough generic stage 2 tune to be smoothed out so the bike is both safe and smoother to ride. That has been achieved . See the results below. My highway pegs arrived in the post yesterday so this afternoon I have time to put them on and go fora nice ride later on in the evening.

Congrats gc3, it is really noticeable from 3,500rpm.  And revving out to 6,000rpm must help as well.

I have to be honest have not had chance to take it for a good ride but from the short ride from the dealers to home it seemed to rev more freely and is 100% smoother ,having the rev range extended makes a big difference too. Looking forward to doing a longer ride asap. 
As for the Highway pegs They are great quality but without instructions they are useless as I can't get them assembled and to fit correctly ,then to enable the pegs to stay up once I lift them so might be throwing them back to the guys I bought them from. Unless they can send me some sort of instruction sheet to make them work. I can do most modifications but this one has me baffled lol.

What are the pegs like? I originally had the Indian ones but they were HUGE and heavy and caused a vibration in the floor boards! Wouldn't mind something to rest my toes on (heals on the floorboard). The Kuryakyn tow pegs are still to close for me.

I bought them off eBay they are the same as a lot of Harley riders are using but are not branded as they are made in China. The chrome is second to none but they have 2 washers that have a flat section where the peg mounts to the mount it self. It seems impossible to get them in and still place the peg where it needs to go on the mount.No instructions and I can usually work these things out as I have done in the past ,but these had me baffled  for a while. I left them for a few hours to stop and think how to get them assembled.Once I could see how to kept them up and install the peg to the mount section it was easy but took a bit of doing to make sense of the total assembly .I don't like anything beating me and will attempt most things and amazing how you can save $$$$$ by doing it your self.
