Angry Why is my 2010 Super Glide so damn quiet?

Just bought my new Wide Glide in Vivid black. Got Rush 1.75 slip ons but is still way to quiet! I even started it with no mufflers and it was not impressive. Other forum told me there might be cats in the head pipes and I would have to change the whole exhaust. I just traded my 1200 custom for it and it was 10 times louder with the same brand slip ons! What gives?
how can this bike sound like a Harley should sound? Help!!!!!!!!!

Not sure why it is so quiet I know all the new stuff is really quiet from the factory but with slipon's it should be louder do your slipons have the quiet baffels in them? I know vance and hines has different baffles for there mufflers. I have Vance and Hines big radius 2 into 2 on my 2010 fat bob and that thing sounds sick.

Mate, if they're anything like the 2010's that were sent out here to OZ then you gotta loose the headers.
Take a look behind the upper pipe and see what looks like a damn exhaust brake thats controlled by a magic box via cable. It shuts off that pipe and forces the exhaust out of one pipe only until the engine reaches somewhere around 2500 RPM.
FWIW, my choice for the 96 CI was a set of V&H Big Shot Staggered complimented with a stage one air kit and SERT.
Sounds like an H-D should,,, Awesome.

I can see straight through the slip ons. thought about taking baffles out of them but like i said i started it with no mufflers and it was still quieter than my 1200 with mufflers.

Thank you for that info I wonder if there is a way to keep that cable pulled open? I guess i will have to look into a new exhaust system. 15 grand for a bike and gotta keep spending!

Your's may be different,,,, I was told that the restrictor was originally all to do with California emission regulations, so to be cost effective H-D ran all the Tommy Gun systems with it.

Wife will understand, just tell her that it's cheaper to keep a Harley than a Mistress, she'll get the message.
