I got rid of that stupid looking license plate bracket and with the assistance of my neighbor Ken, and some kengineering we rigged up a plate mount. Looks ok and was 138 dollars cheaper than the eliminator kit I saw on ebay. I ordered a Vance and Hines slip on, I was going to order a power commander with it, but on the website I only saw a map for a Vance and Hines slip on and stock air filter. I would like to upgrade the air filter too.... Am I supposed to email them with my specific setup and they will design a map, or am I supposed to just wait until they pop up? Do you think it will be OK to run the V&H slip on with a stock air box without the power commander for a little while? I'm not riding it hard, only have 100 miles on it, just brought it home from the dealer yesterday.

My god does this stock seat suck!

You can download maps from their website for almost all configurations. Remember all Yamaha Bolt maps/ intake/exhaust/fuel controllers work on this bike.

Oooooh yeah, duh. I just looked at the scr maps. Lol. Thanks.
Vance & Hines would be wanting you to run their ‘Fuel Pak’. The maps on their website are for that, not a PC (I don’t think) - you put in the set-up you have, and it should produce the map you want. Theirs is just a series of values you punch into the Fuel Pak. Any set up they don’t have readily available, contact them. A very general rule is running EITHER a pipe OR air filter ‘should’ be fine on stock fuelling (many do), but running both would cause it to run too lean.

Check out the videos by Chapparal Motorsports re fitting V&H kit to the Bolt (same bike):


Welcome to the club. Nice Sportie too - XL1200R, no?

After I read your reply I went back and checked Power Commander again and replaced Scrambler with bolt and it still only gave me 11 map options. I'll have to look into what you said, finding the map packs at a different location. I will get an intake eventually, I think I need to order a Corbin seat first and I really hate this gauge so I will probably get that ridiculously expensive gauge as well. As for the Sportster that is my neighbors, he waited 24 hours from the time I brought my new Yamaha home until he went out and bought a V-Twin. He buys everything that I buy

Who cares about the Sportster......I see a nice Nova. Is that yours? My SCR shares the garage with a 70 Malibu. It's hard to decide what to drive on nice days.

No, it's not a Beaumont. That would be @flatrack who had the Beaumont.
Actually you're wrong, not that I had a Beaumont, I did, had a few, and a 67 Malibu convertible, 4 speed (my best car). BUT some of the Malibus WERE built in Canada (as I'm sure you know). Your VIN number will tell you. I'm guessing yours was originally a 250 slushbox, column shift ??

It was originally a 307 mated up to the current TH350, column shift. It's a tremendously dependable car that came out of Leeds Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Missouri. I actually have the original build sheet that was found under the rear bench seat.
