1. Search function on the forum gives you access to TONS of info that others have posted...just so happens that your question is addressed multiple times a week.

2. Quick and dirty answer....Get a set of x14ieds. Plug-n-play install and 5 min later you're back in the saddle. That will solve the issue for ECM calibration and they're a cheaper option than a FuelPak or PCV.

I had the same intake with the X14iED's. It still ran a bit too lean, as I had a lot of decel popping. I'd still consider trying them, but you will more than likely have to add an additional tuner if you have an aftermarket exhaust too. I ended up taking my intake and FuelPak off because I didn't feel like screwing around with the tuning anymore. I lost a little power and it doesn't look as nice, but it runs like a champ now.

I used the newer XIEDs for 500 miles before removing them and replacing them with a Fuel Moto Micro EFI. Wish I would have bought the FM first.

If you install that SE air filter with no mods your bike will probably run lean, which can have a variety of effects, such as back-firing on the over-run. There is a confusing variety of devices that claim to solve all our problems, after modifying our bikes. I couldn't get an XIED for my Buell, but found a Dobeck module that has a decent degree of adjustment and cured my Buell. It starts more readily now, runs more smoothly on tick-over and is just nicer to ride.

There is a Sticky in the Tech Ignition section that is worth reading, on why EFI bikes need a tuner.
