    First ride after Lloydz cam install on my 2016 Magnum . Absolutely perfect addition to underdrive pulley. Nothing more needs to be done. Fun bike. I'm content. Just a more powerful and responsive machine. Gone from whale to shark.

    After the novelty wore off and I got back to "normal" local riding, my mpg went from 38 to 40 the bike runs so much easier.

    Good to know.......I usually only check mileage against the guys I ride with but if this mod doesn't hurt it much then all the better.

    One more, speed limit removal, so you don't hit that irritating rev limiter all the time

    Redline was bumped up a thousand I believe he said. Didn't notice any increase in noise from the Lloydz intake which was nice. Other than the intake, cams and tri ovals it's basically stock. Has more grunt from 2500 all the way up now which is all I need from a bagger.

    Oh ya , and has underdrive pulley which I was equally impressed with. May do the above mods on my 06 Hammer as well. Already have the pulley . Like to keep the bikes appearing stock so no radical exhaust planned as they already have Victory stage 1 which are not annoyingly loud.

    I got mine done a couple months ago. Seemed to me the ECM needed to make some adjustments for a few days. Then things smoothed out. Tri Ovals here too. Underdrive still could happen.

    I also don't regret skipping the throttle ring. With the Big Avon Air grips, I felt the ring would be more a risk to my low speed safety than anything helpful. I was 100% right.

    Congrats, Truly makes these bikes so much easier 2 ride w/ lots less shifting. I’m still on fence w/ UD pulley as we ride 2 up on decent sized hills w/ plenty of grunt outta the 505’s / Maximus from 2k to the rev limiter plus my speedo is dead balls accurate. If/when decide to pull a trailer a UD pulley is a must but now I’d prob just myself n trouble. The other day I was just gettin up on the highway & went 2,3,4 not really runnin way up on tach & clicked 5th when looked dwn was running 90. What a diff a few minor mods make on these bikes

    I would make these comments...

    The UD pulley is a small change. It simply makes the gearing better suited to the engine's power curves.

    All the throttle ring does is make the throttle twist distance match the human wrist.

    The 1/4 turn is a must do mod. I currently have it on 2/3 of my stable. It's a minor change, making full throttle available without adjusting your grip on the grip is all.

    I have the 1/4 for my XC, just waiting till I change the bars and grips that I've had forever.

    The throttle ring makes the bike much easier to ride coming out of the corners and accelerating. Stock there's just way too much twisting going on.

    The rev limit and the speed governor are two different functions. The speed governor will not allow the bike to exceed 120-some MPH, regardless of rpm.

    That underdrive pulley should have been equipped from the factory. At 80 MPH, my XCT is just so alive in 5th gear. She loves to play on the thruway.

    I put an underdrive pulley,Buell belt and the throttle ring on mine and it turned it from a nice bike to ride to a fun bike to ride.I didn't have to get used to the throttle ring.
