V-Man, Thanks for the reply. Shoulder is getting better , hope to be riding in a few weeks. My bike was a factory demo and was one of the first injected bikes. I had a lot of trouble with the bike surging at idle when I first got it. Most of the problem was with the dealer Jr. Holbrook Elite V8 cycles who is no longer a dealer. Badger Dave knows all about this guy. Once I figured out that he wasn't doing anything to the bike the 6 times I had it to his shop I called the factory. They had Howell engine developments send me a new chip for the computer problem solved. The bike starts easy runs great pulls hard from idle to WOT. I do miss the rush of the secondaires kicking in.Going to Vegas for a few days will try :to post pics when I get back.

Glad to hear the bike is running strong for you - a GOOD dealer makes all the difference in the world from a BAD one ... I've experienced both! It is good to hear that the lousey guy you dealt with is no longer in business - that means there is still hope! :) The factory has been great in all my dealings with them too.

Enjoy Vegas, let that shoulder heal a little more! :D Look forward to seeing those pictures when you get home. See you on the road.
