I recently took delivery of a 2008 Speedmaster ( carbs )
Bike has 50 miles as I'm not much of a winter rider.
I purchased new EPCO pipes along with AI removal kit
jets, etc. The question is how many miles should the
bike have before installing these performance upgrades ?

Upgrades

The sooner the better if you want to avoid discoloration of your pipes at the headers. I replaced mine and removed the AI on my '08 at about the 80 mile mark, and the headers were already starting to change color...... My bike came to life with the changes you have in mind, plus a re-jet!

I kinda like Blue pipes, but to each his own. I personally feel you should get through the 500 mi breakin before any performance work....
