    So is a "Fat Duc" a must have? and where do us aussies get one from? Last bike had a full system and a power commander and custom map - I loved how smooth it was. It would shit me if fuelling wasnt very good, and from reading some of this thread, seems like a good mod.

    In that case, make sure you test ride in 'T' (touring mode....), Try Sports mode for a laugh though !

    As for the Fatduc, you can also just order it online from AF1 store...

    Bu if you do that better check the postage as they used to have a minimum of $40, even for tiny things.

    still do. Postage can be expensive, I just wish us non-US customers had alternatives.

    there are cheaper options than the FatDuc.

    I noticed that the setting on my fat duc from AF1 crept from 12 o'clock to 2 o'clock. I set it back down and will put a dot of thread lock on it when I'm sure that it's right. One question: can the fat duc from AF1 be bent readily? I need to snake it around some things to make it work on my '09 Shiver, but I'm afraid of breaking it. The connectors extend quite a bit beyond the actual resistor/dial.

    Thanks, John

    It's a fibreglass PCB, so quite strong, but don't try to bend it - not a good idea!

    I made my own FatDuc using the same components. The trimpot shouldn't move on it's own...
    Personally, I set the trimpot by measuring the resistance across the lambda sensor signal pins at either plug.
    That way, you can be absolutely accurate in your adjustments & re-set it to exactly where it was before.

    Okay, thanks Clint. It's tough to figure out what do do with the slack once the fat duc is in line.
