The big 3 mods etc... sound/cold Weather ?

Seriously thinkin of getting the ehs big 3 set up along with maybe a 13t sprocket. I am curious on a couple things. I've been reading ALOT on here an.. does anyone run the big three in really cold temps? I ride snowmobile trails in the winter most of our rides are anywhere from 30 to 80 miles. We just did a ride a couple weeks ago where we did 70 miles an it was only 11 degrees out. Does anyone run the big 3 in these kind of extreme temps? Really worried about it leaning out on me. Also, am worried about sound, I know the barkers has a quiet core but.. how does it sound? I had an FMF q4 on my old honda 4stroke dirtbike an liked the sound nice an quiet. My buddy has the full muzzy on his kfx an it sounds AWESOME! Thanks for any input!

if you have the programmer, running lean shouldn't be a problem no matter what the temp is. check your plug and if it looks a little lean with the settings you have, bump it up .5 if its that cold.

If you don't have any problems leaning out on a stock bike in the cold then i doubt you'll have any problems with the EHS setup leaning out too much. If it does run a little lean you can always call Eric and ask him what to change in order to fatten it up a little. The Barker pipe is LOUD but sounds killer! The Best sounding exhaust for this bike as far as i'm concerned. The FMF's are quieter but won't give you the power the Barker will. I say pull the trigger and get the EHS setup. You won't regret it!

I know Eric from EHS says that all the FI quads have a temp sensor an fattens the stock map up on colder temps (which it should) But, is that really enough? Also, the last thing I wanna be doing is throttle chopping when it's 5 degrees out! I had a canam renegade an... didn't wanna deal with the pcv an autotune an all that crap (no local dyno shops around). If the EHS is a simple bolt on mod an they can gaurentee me that down to about 5 degrees (any colder an I don't wanna ride) it's more than safe to run I'm sold. I just want something I can bolt on an not worry about an still be as reliable as stock. I do close to 5-600 miles in the winter on the sled trails, nothing like screaming a groomed sled trail at 50 an sliding the corners.

Well i don't ride mine when it's that cold. So i can't say from experience but i think you'll be fine. Might have to push a few buttons to fatten it up but it's really no big deal.

i havent personally tested it in 5 degree weather it dont get that cold very often in nc i have tried it on the dyno in 35-40 degree weather by opening my shop up and compared it to something when it was hot out and it stayed right in the ball park but 5 degrees is somthing harder to test. you can fatten up the map in 10 seconds with the controller if your worried worst thing that will happen is it will get a little slugish but more than likely you can make more power and it will handle the fuel well if it doesnt have a high moisture content in the air.

You'll be fine in the cold, the stock xx is more lean than with the EHS big 3 and I road for hours in 20 degree weather last year. I would be riding this winter with the big 3 but we have 18" of snow and I'm still waiting on my rear shocks.

so how exactly do you "fatten it up in ten seconds" you just push some buttons to add fuel? Is it possible to take too much fuel away with the EHS controller? Like I said some people with real world experience would be great. An... having the equipment not even tested in extreme conditions doens't give me a warm an fuzzy either. I don't know about anyone else but I ride anywhere from 0 to 90 degrees an wish for a product with R+D to prove it works in all conditions but yet it's always us that do all the R+D it seems.
