I have an 05 500 Auto.
Are there any tricks to get way better holeshot and midrange?
I put a stiffer spring (yellow Dalton) in the secondary worked a little but want more.
Thanks.

yep...give it more air and more fuel. You may be pretty lean to begin with, so check your plugs and go from there. Could be a simple thing as rejetting.

Exactly what he said, It makes a big difference from stock in the low and mid range. Not much on topend though but it gets there faster.

yup, what they said and also lifting the stock needle 60 thousands.. i put a 158 jet in it from a harley store since cat dealers around here dont carry jets on hand... my 500 really woke up after this, also 2.75 turns out on the screw.
