Hello fellow NE area Strom riders. Hope your enjoying the awesome riding weather this weekend.
I live just south of the Boston area and am looking for any recommendations for a shop or possibly a dealer that someone has used to set up their fuel system with a Yosh Box. Even better would be someone that has a box that would be willing to help me out, I'll buy the beer, lunch and whatever it takes. My 05 Vee really sucks at 32-3700 rpm, as I see is quite common. It really is taking quite a bit of the joy out of riding it. I am looking into a PCIII but I just don't have the cash to spend on one right now.
Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

From what I've read, no one has been able to improve on the stock mapping.
You really shouldn't be riding in that low of an RPM anyway. Should be at least 4K, and 5K would be better. The motor is happiest when it's spinning. If you're coming from a Harley or something similar, it'll take a while to get used to what seems like a screaming motor but it's really the way the motor was designed.

Give Harry's Machine Shop in Northboro a call. For a couple hundred bucks he can Dyno-Tune your bike, however I dont know if you have to have a PCIII or V first or if he has a box that can be installed, programmed and removed.
I had a PCIII that was adequate but after a couple hours at Harry's turned the bike into an absolute delight to ride at every RPM.
Later,
Chris in Norwood

Did you did a good shop in the area for this? I'm trying to find one around worcester or maybe an hour away. Otherwise I'm thinking a PCV. I called Motorsports International in Auburn & they said they don't do it & the tech recommended I buy a PCV.

Change the gearing, If you go to a smaller sprocket on the front you will get into your rev range a little quicker and it will smooth out for you, these bikes are happier above 4k rpm, they are not like a big twin cruiser
