Hundreds of maps are available to download (based on model, engine size, exhaust system air cleaner, pistons, cams, etc.) - load the map of your choice and the integral auto-tune will do the rest. It improves throttle response, exhaust sound and driveability and does not require dyno tuning - the rider can adjust idle speed, rev limit and speedometer calibration. It has adjustable front and rear cylinder AFR maps, ignition timing (spark) maps, and start up maps. It works with all popular exhaust systems, is PARTS AND ACCESSORIES compatible with high-performance camshafts and supports turbo, nitrous and supercharger applications.

These one-inchers are crafted from seamless 0.120” (3 mm) wall 4130 chromoly tubing and precision mitered, mandrel bent and TIG welded. They are available in 10”, 12”, or 14” heights with integrated risers that fit the stock upper triple trees with the 3.5” center-to-center spacing found on most Harley models, and are 1/2-13 threaded. Burly HEX air cleaner The new Burly Brand HEX air cleaner features an “industrial hex design that fits organically to the H-D V-twin engine with a ‘less is more’ attitude and a very attractive price tag,” according to Burly product supremo Sean Delshadi. Made from strong, stamped steel and finished in a durable black powder-coat or chrome finish, they come with the “Slotted” faceplate design and a K&N air filter installed for maximum performance and filtration. The new air cleaner features oil breather bolts that route heat and chemical resistant, flexible tubing through the unit and back to the intake manifold for minimal oil seep. “The HEX design complements the H-D V- twin lines and many other build styles,” says Sean. “Its thin profile provides plenty of knee clearance without sacrificing air flow, while the rounded-off corners in the design eliminate snagging your pants.” Burly Brand also offers two optional faceplate designs, the “MX” and “Wrench” – available in chrome and black. These stamped steel faceplates are sold separately and are a quick swap-out with just three easy bolts. BURLY BRAND La Palma, California, USA Tel: 888 367 1871 BILTWELL INC.
