    I have a 2001 Fatbot(FLSTF) stock. I just put Thunder header exhaust and I bought a Kuryakan Hypercharger Pro to put on. What kit would be best - or should I just change the jets and mixture screw and call that good? Would a Stage 1 kit work? Thanks for your suggestions.

    A good tuners kit will help with getting the carb tuned properly, with that thunderheader and air filter upgrade you are going to be very lean, since the carb
    stock is lean to begin with, and you can create a ton of heat and problems running
    too lean.

    You need to change the jets adjust the idle mix at a minimum.
    I would look at one of the kits and do the whole thing.

    Cool - thanks for the info - so the jets in the kits are sufficient to enrich the fuel mixture as needed for proper performance.
    I think Ill go with the premium kit as it includes the best assortment of parts - go big or go home right?

    Thanks

    Better to have more than you need than not enough...
