Hello Friends, I have a 2000 DHS. After reading the forums, I tried the WOT procedure so widely discussed here. I took the car to the highway and had it in 2. I increased the speed to about 70mph for 4 mins then let it come down to around 30 mph, then again up to 70mph holding it there for 4-5 mins and then back to 30. I did this for about 15 mins, there was no black smoke from my car. I did burn lot of gas, I could see from the display but there was no poof of black smoke. Am I doing something wrong, Please advice, this was the first time I did this.
After getting off the highway, I did notice the Temp going a bit high, just one jump but it came back to normal in a minute.
Any help/advice would be great.

If when accelerating, you were holding the pedal to the floor (WOT Wide Open Throttle), and you got no smoke / pinging, then your cylinders are clear of carbon. You really need to stand on the pedal, to clear it out. If you were accelerating in a "normal" fashion, then you were not doing it right.
