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.
I love my 60. I owned a 69 for 3 years, and I never could understand why that 5th gear was necessary, and I was always shifting between 4th & 5th.
18,000 miles since I posted this, last year.
Haven't found a better bike.....I rode the FTR a couple times and a Springfield.
Scout is a real sleeper. Obviously not a true touring bike, but fantastic for 90% of what we do on bikes.
It's nice when you can take the learning curve & all the trial & error from the 1st Scout and be so ready for the 2nd one.
Just curious, what brand are the trunks on the red 2015 69?
They are Viking bags painted to Indian Red color.
