    Heya fellows,

    Been a busy year and have been out of the motorcycle scene for a moment and definitely out of touch with Victory stuff over the years. I come to you all today asking for some advice to make things a bit more smooth running on my wonderful bike. I have a '14 Cross country with Freedom performance true duals (straight) A Lloydz victory fuel controller and high flow filter as well as a timing wheel. The bike has always had some snapping to it on decel which is a common issue that I just had to deal with. Well now I've decided to do what I can to make the ride smoother as well as more mechanically sound. I was thinking of something along the lines of a new fuel controller or possibly revisiting my timing wheel settings to help reduce that popping. Any thoughts or comments are greatly appreciated and I look forward to hearing your thoughts!

    Check into the Maximus. It can adjust in the same range as the timing wheel so with it the Lloydz timing wheel is no longer needed. It is the latest greatest and @NOEMTZ can remote tune it for you.

    You’ll never completely get rid of pop but the Maximus makes it much rarer

    @NOEMTZ can hook you up. If in your spot, Maximus is the way I would go. Get rid of the piggy back, one less thing to phuck up. If you add cams or something in the future, Noe can easily retune.

    You’ve come to the right place with a wad of cash to throw at your bike. Yes, Maximus with Noe. I’ve had the PCV and the Lloyds timing gear for over 70K trouble free miles. Yet I’d still like to experience the Maximus tune to reduce popping and to get a more exact tune.

    My oem timing gear continues to rest comfortably wrapped in a towel on a shelf in the garage. I swear sometimes when I walk by I can hear it sye with an occasional wimper.

    mechanically there is nothing wrong with the bike .. but if you are trying to smooth the ride out, you really have 2 options

    1) do a maximus tune and remove the timing wheel
    or
    2) add a power commander 5 and get the bike tuned

    Noe is a great resource for the Maximus .. i think it costs a little more, but the tune in the bike is a bit better. the pc5 option is also good, but its a street tune vs a dyno roller tune.

    @JudgeRedd Dont fly too close to the sun or you’ll burn your wings, get plenty of sleep beforehand so your arms don’t get tired. I’m jelly, wish I was going to Conquest too

    you could also “0” out that timing gear and leave it in place. Or sell it as they’re valuable and may not be so easy to get a hold of in the future.
    Leaving it may give you a little more adjustment under 2500 rpm with a final tune from Maximus.
    ( like to tinker ) Maybe not though .......maybe not even recommended either ....but I can’t see any harm in leaving it at 0 degrees then doing your Maximus tune. Good question for @NOEMTZ

    My Orem O2 sensors are in a box on a shelf in that garage as well. I’ve never heard a peep out of them, or the one cams. The cams just sit there like lumps of steel. Crazy huh?

    go to Maximus and you can take the timing wheel out, then throw in a set of cams and get it tuned!
