    To be honest I won’t be fiddling around much with it when it’s done , if any issues come up then I will just take it back and get them to deal with it as a warranty issue ,  I’m presuming as they are fitting it all it won’t effect the warranty .

    Umm don't be so presumptuous about the warranty......

    Yeh I’m aware of all the discussions on warranties when changing out parts etc .. I will be talking to the sales .. and service department before riding it away .. I will get a good indication of what they say and what they do when I take my glide back for a service as it’s been spitting a bit on decel , so if they say it’s coz of the pipes ( that they fitted ) and don’t want to play ball .. then I will know where I stand I suppose 
    Well your going to be disappointed straight up......they will tell you it needs a tune, the canned tune is a basic generic safe one suiting all bikes with the same mods. Its not SPECIFIC for your bike.

    Power vision or screaming eagle are the most popular brands for a tuner with most canned tunes and advice available to help you auto tune etc.  If your moving to a m8 from a twin cam it will possibly go better with a stg 1 against your stg 2 on the old motor

    Please make sure the se tuner will work on your bike. I have a New se super tuner and when I asked the dealer if I could use it on my 2020 sport glide he said it won't work on the 2020 models, I thought he was trying to sell me the maximus which I bought, as I didn't have any other options if I wanted to keep my warranty. If it wasn't for the warranty issues I would have gone for the power vision. The maximus is Not user friendly and you have to do the dealer training to learn how to use it. I have a stage 1 with bassani rr3 and se air box. Not very happy with the performance, not much different to standard, just sounds a lot better. I think the canned map that the dealer loaded is not very good, as the bike still pops a little on decel. Next is a Redshift 468 cam and I will get a dyno tune which I am hoping will make a difference. In hindsight I should have got the power vision and done everything myself, hang the warranty. If there was an issue with the engine then it would have been a good excuse for a 124 kit, which would have replaced just about anything that could go wrong.

    You will be pleased with the new cam and custom tune, I went for the SE 462 cam to keep my warrantee, I know the R/S 468 makes a couple more hp & torque but I wanted the piece of mind of having the warrantee having the previous years M8 probs(sumping etc), it made a huge difference to my FXLRS (114) the bike now runs as it should ($4-5k) down the track, All the popping and a flat spot around 3000 rpm gone, the bike runs heaps smoother with power to burn, these new M8's are really restricted with their pipes, aircleaner and tune  
    I have a very slightly used se447 cam that was given to me (couple of hundred k's) maybe I will fit that instead of the RS468. I always thought the red shift is a better cam but have seen some graphs showing the SE447 to be slightly better. I just can't see paying someone nearly $1000 in labor to fit the cam when I can do it myself, only problem is the warranty implications. Did you have the dealer fit the cam?

    Yes dealer fitted, there is a good M8 cam shoot out on youtube that you might find interesting, sorry i don't now how to put up the link, the se 447 is a torque cam, a power cam may be a better selection for your sportglide though imo

    Hey wello sorry for hijacking your thread.
    Hard to make a decision of which way to go value wise, stage 2, 3 or 124 kit. That's why I should have got a proper tuner, f'd the warranty then go the whole hog if anything shits itself.
