Screamin eagle pipes

Hey gang, I would like to hear from those who might be running the street legal screamin eagle pipes. I realize alot of folks like the louder pipes but I am not interested in that. I am wondering what those who have them think about them? Do they keep the low end grunt alive? Did anyone just put those on and not ac or map? Hope to hear your feedback. Thanks

If you are talking about the slip-ons I had them installed in my 72, they worked nice, not to loud not to quiet, I didn't remap or nothing like that.

I have them on my 08 FXDL. I also added at the same time the HD Stage 1 intake and V&H Fuelpak. There's a little more grunt with this combo. Not as much as I would have expected. The sound is OK. Not very loud but a deeper tone. I wanted a little more noise so I pulled the baffles and opened them up a little. Also adjusted the Fuelpak to recommendations from V&H with the more open baffles. Nicer (louder) sound with a barely noticeable loss of low end torque, but it is noticeable. I'm thinking of either opening the baffle all the way or changing to V&H Hotshots. The longer I have this setup the more I'm used to it and want more sound. I want these rolling four wheel sofas to hear me.

How did you take out your baffles? I have set of SE touring one piece on my 07 ultra. A little more rumble than stock. Then I put on some FullSac headers, a little more rumble, order a fuel pak and V and H air cleaner, don't know if this will sound louder or. My bud has V & H on his ultra. Much louder when you turn the throttle. But I can hear the radio at 80 mph and not a ringing in my ears after a long ride. Almost a mellow rumble?

I have a post running in the exhaust section with the same SE slipons from my 07 SG showing the baffles out and broken. You have to remove the slip on then remove the 3 bolts holding the end cap on. Finally get a long pipe and drive everything out thru the open end. Note: I replaced mine with BIg City Thunder baffles in the exit end of the head pipes and that's it. Sounds awesum not all rattly and not overly loud.

There's no cure for dumb but it sure thins the herd
