Official Thread: 1st Gen Air Cooled HM Chat

Since all of us air cooled riders are on here, looking to get some input on reading spark plugs. I bought my 2012 evo sp stock with 900 miles on her. First thing was a reflash and a baseline tune from redline performance in Yorktown . After about 1500 miles I put in velocity stacks and a full system 2-1 exhaust. The bike runs extremely strong with no flat spots in the rev range that I can feel ( butt dyno ) and no decel popping or anything and spark plugs continue to be a light/medium brown in color and have stayed that way for 4500 miles now. Should I be concerned with a too lean issue or is spark plug color a reliable source of periodically checking ? Thanks guys... And ladies (@KT)

The best lo tech indicator there is ...Brisk plugs are worth the money ...my ass dyno says so.
Glad you are enjoying it . I haven't ridden since May 4th , shoulder surgery. > I think that if you can't pick it up ....
I took it out one time recently anyway and proceeded to put it in to a death wobble almost right away.
I should be ready soon , I can hardly watch this nice weather pass me by.
I think it's 821 hunting season next month.. haha

No concerns with a light/medium brown, and yes, reading plugs is a fairly reliable and accurate indicator of A/F ratio.

Thanks for reply !! I had thought about a custom tune but this bike just runs great , even below 3500 rpm. So I'm gonna save the $700 and just leave it

Nice video VB. The video that helped me when I was deciding to get my Hyper was https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZ4X...35ZgA&index=24 . I have it saved to my favorites and still watch it when it is raining. Great thread by the way. Be safe.
