Yes you would need a retune if you do an aftermarket or modified air supply.
There was nothing mentioned about that in the aforementioned post, just how to have cheap upgrades to exhaust and intake.
I was not familiar enough with the Indian fuel injection system to make a judgement. From what I see, it is fairly primitive, compared to our cars.
Agree, you can do one or the other without needing a tune, but if you open up the intake and exhaust together, you will have a lean condition.
On my first Scout I fitted a K & N filter and modified my Stage one exhausts. On my second Scout I modified the air intake box as described in the thread and fitted a K & N filter and again modified the Stage one mufflers so generously given to me by @JayFL459 . Neither bike showed any sign of leanness. No popping on decel or flat spotting in the higher rev ranges. I had the tune checked during a service in Wellington and was advised the bike tune was fine. Since then I have fitted a GMan Industries GMan 'Bully' EFI tuner. The bike is perkier now but I do wonder if the tuner was necessary as Scouts are damn perky to begin with,.......
PS,......ticked over 23,000 miles on Scout 2 the other day,.....
Bike looks cool Bud,.....I have a Memphis Shades screen fitted also,......ruby red ( naturally ) Rio Grande,......Love it,......headlight riser kit fitted also,.....even have a ruby red screen on my VS800 Suzuki Intruder too,..
Scout #1 & #2
Love these bikes. Still cannot fathom the negative things I've heard. I'm never riding the 850lb beast again!
Good on you. If Indian don't have a true midweight soon, I will be trading my Springfield for a new Scout set up for 2. From my experience with my 60 and others Scouts, I know exactly what to do to make it a worthy little 2 up occasional tourer.
I'm surprised at that Muz,.......two Scouts?,.......That's a change of heart there,....no?,......
Scout or maybe a Softail, Triumph Speedtwin, something ??
There you go!,....almost blaspheming again!!!!!!
I went and tried a Triumph Speedmaster.
The Indian is a notch up on quality.... And they are basically exactly the same size.
I liked the Indian engine better...and the American brand.
Maybe a Triumph will show up one day...but the nearest dealer is hours away. The closest one (1.5 hours) went under the day I went to look and couldn't sell me the bike because it was going back to Triumph.
I just went grocery shopping on the big bike.
Dang, I can carry alot.
After being on a Scout for a while, it seemed large, lol. Surprisingly, I would not rate the ride as better. In fact, I was less comfortable.... The "vibes" on the Scout are much more pleasant and I missed the wide rpm range.
If I was riding 2up all the time, it would be hard to say goodbye. I'm selling the Chieftain, and maybe down the road they'll make a true mid sized cruiser.
