    Yes the bikes were lean from factory ( to meet EPA standards) and even leaner when adding air cleaner and pipes, A new map fixes it.
     tried to add a picture of my bike and it turns upside down???? any clues???
    I used the upload function

    Hi mate. It's one of the vagaries of phone cameras.
    Go and edit your post, Click on Gallery, double click on the image you want and it'll put it in your post. I got rid of your duplicates.
    If it happens again, click on pics (under your avatar) and use the rotation function to turn the pic up the right way (for the forum)

    Yes, Bullant the tuning will fix the decel popping, for a carby model bigger jets or move the slide needle ,depending on carby type, and for efi model different map required,( you need the vehicle interface box to connect to the ECM) i have used thundermax and harley pro tuner with success. I have put a thundermax for sale in the parts for sale section there is a list of bikes it fits as well.

    Hey dicko welcome mate. 
    I too bought a 2006 model, albeit a dark cousin of your ride, Black Fatboy, but traded her in for 2012 Road Glide.
    Nice looking ride, as well sorted too aye.
