  • Fuel controller or maximus tune?

    Posted by Alex on May 30, 2024 at 11:21 pm

    I have a 2011 cross country. I removed the baffles from the stock exhaust, other than that the bike is stock. Would I benefit from a Lloyd’s fuel controller to reduce popping and backfire? Would this cool the bike down a little bit? I was thinking about adding a Lloyd’s timing wheel as well. Would these two pair together well or would something like the maximus tune work better. It would have to be tuned remotely as I do not live near any victory tuners.

    Was also wondering about swapping to the Lloyd’s high flow air filter.i am not looking to make this the most powerful bike out there. Just trying to make it run better/smoother.

    Here is the thing about fuel controllers

    1) you get what you pay for. I never use the Lloydz controller as it has very little tuning capabilities.

    2) We don’t use an engine controller to cool down an engine. A good running engine will be hot and lean at cruise, rather than bogged down in soot and carbon from overfueling. Wind control is a much better way to cool yourself down.

    3) Lloydz air filter would be a good addition if you’re looking for additional power. Not required if you don’t care about power.

    If you want the bike to run correctly, and you want to do it right the first time, employ a professional to set up a more complex controller like a Maximus or a Power Commander. Your results will be directly proportional to the skills of the person tuning the bike. With a pro tuning the bike it will run WAY better than it did stock, and still get good fuel mileage. If you go with a cheap, do-it-yourself controller and shooting from the hip home-tune then you’ll wonder why the other guys that used a more complex controller and professional tuner are enjoying their bikes more.
