2013 street glide

I have a 2013 street glide,after talking with a guy at local dealership,he informed me that replacing the smashed pipe under swing arm would yield great results. Has anyone replaced theirs on the stock system? Would anyone know of a company that makes a replacement?
Thanks

Put a 2 into 1 system on it.
No more smashed pipe.

I believe any of the true dual systems would also eliminate that pipe.

Some of the systems don't replace the under frame pipe. I believe the V&H power duals does.

Rember,your Streetglide has 3/4" less suspension so it's lower than an Electraglide or Roadking,and closer to the ground.

"Great results" ?

I doubt it. The outer "diameters" are the same for the oval as the round pipe therefore the inner would be aproximatly the same. A few percents differance in area for a circle over an oval.

Gutting the cat is supposed to yield big gains and reduce temps.
The factory pipe actually looks fairly efficient.

In the end its a Harley not a Formula One car.

I'm going after sound not a few % here or there HP/TQ.

Better yet buy the Rinehart true duals for $400 listed in the touring section.

Heard these at a dealer today.

WOW.

I have had rineharts on last 2 street glides. Thinking I want the V&H monster ovals. If I do go with rineharts I would get the 4 inch ones. I been told the 103 likes the 4 inch better. After gutting the cat seems right side muffler is louder then left. I realize it's to do with pipe design. I hope that changes after I switch mufflers. If I replace head pipes I'm going with power duals. I'm not trying to build a race car,just want the best set up. I want to do steps of course in the right direction.
