Dyna Fat Bob2013 Screamin' Eagle mufflers

Gidday all. Hoping too pick up a 2013 model Fat Bob very soon and have been looking at pipe options. Was considering V&H Big Radius but am now swayed toward the stock headers with the Screamin' Eagle Street performance staggered dual mufflers. Adding the Heavy Breather air cleaner setup as well. Anyone done similar. Would appreciate your owner/rider feedback..

My 2008 Dyna Custom came with Screaming Eagle 2 mufflers and the Heavy breather, It also has the race tuner and runs clean and strong. It has been fitted with 103cui kit. The SE2 mufflers are a bit too quiet for me tho so I ordered some V&H Straight shot slipons yesterday. The SE2 have a nice sound I just want a bit more volume. Good luck with the Fat Bob Oz .

Thanks Jimmy Jazz. Will have too check out the sound from them i think. But have been told you can't go past the stock headers for overall performance..

Ozbiker! Good to see you again man. Been a looong time.
My 09 FXDF has the SE muffs. They are mild sounding IMO and now that they have several thousand miles on em, they are a little better sounding but still mild IMO.
I got no complaints about them tho. I like to be able to hear me engine run and more importantly to me is being able to hear if something is starting to go south in it.
Even tho I will probably change out the exhaust one of these days I still wouldn't want anything super loud for the reason I stated.
Hopefully you can find someone whos using them so you can make a decision about all that. kind of a personal choice i reckons.
Fun bike man, the newer ones with the bigger engine should be even more fun.

Hello Ozbiker69, It's getting cold here in Pennsylvania,USA. It's probably getting nice for you folks down under. Anyway, to answer your question, I have the Screaming Eagle slip on mufflers on my 2008 dyna super glide custom (96 c.u.i. engine) and the stage 1 breather. To me the set up is perfect, great sound (loud but not obnoxious)so it won't wake up the neighbors when you come home from the pub late at night. It has great acceleration and cost less to install. I would recommend the S.Eagle heat shields on slip ons to cut down on any unwanted burns. Good luck my friend, and let us know how you made out.

I was just at the dealer today to pick up some parts, and I asked them about a different exhaust on my 2013 SG. He asked me how I wanted the sound, and I told him I liked the pipes on my brothers 2004 Softail with Sreming Eagle pipes. He told me they got REAL quiet this past year. Apparently they had to go 50 state legal, and they sound about the same as stock pipes. A tiny bit different, but only if you heard them side by side.

I wanted to get slip ons for now that didn't require a bunch of mods. He suggested Vans & Hines for my bike. They would be a tiny bit louder than the Sreaming Eagles from days gone by. Said there wasn't a bunch of options that didn't require recalibration.

From what my dealer said as long as I kept the same configuration in regards to the crossover pipe, and kept the baffles in no mods would be required.

I asked how much performance I could expect with a full exhaust and breather upgrade. The answer was "minimal". You have to spend some $$$ to get much more performance than stock.

I might be a bit late on this response fpor ya but I put those pipes on my 2012 FXDF and they dragged on slight corners and didn't sound much better than the stock pipes....I changed to V& H slip ons, much better!
