Hello all...new member to this site, but I've been watching for quite a while. Just traded in my 07 Night Train for a 09 Street Glide. I thought I would get a few opinions on my ideas for exhaust. I had the 103 big bore kit installed when I bought the bike.

V&H Power Duals...
ThunderMax w/autotune (avail in Jan 09)...
Either Kuryakyn Pro R Hypercharger or Corsair air intake...
Ideas on great sounding and performing mufflers???

I want it to be loud...but don't want to rob performance.

What are your thoughts? While on the subject, what about cams that work well...and streetable...whith this combo.

S/F

Installed Thunder Header 2 into 1.Picking up tomorrow. Will post numbers. Maybe 203 or 211 cams. Tell the tech what range you ride in most and what they recommend. If they have a dyno , ask to see what kind of numbers they have seen.

09 Street Glide buyer

I also just purchased an 09 Street Glide (Black Pearl) and it's sweet. The dealer wanted to sell me the Rinehart slip-ons. I listened to them but they were'nt loud enough, but they did sound good. Anyway I look forward to any suggestions anyone has. I live in California so it's illegal to have any of them, but that won't stop me.

Vance & Hines and Samson have available complete exhaust systems for the '09 Touring bikes. The exhaust pipes, not the mufflers on the '09 Touring bikes are 38% more efficient than older bikes. If you go with slip-ons you will still have a very good exhaust system for less money. Myself I think the looks of the '09 exhaust pipes is great.

I also opted for the Thunderheader 2 into 1 for performance reasons and they have a nice deep roar. They are not as loud as some of the others though.

I too recently picked up an 09 Street Glide, and even if I didn't do anything to the bike, I just love it. That being said, the salesman who sold me mine also has a Glide, and he has Rush slip-ons with 2 1/2" baffles. He fired it up for me and it's plenty loud. He also did the TFI and Air Filter for good measure. I have heard you can go as high as 2" baffles without getting it done, but I also heard it's a good idea since bikes tend to run lean from the factory anyway for EPA reasons. Anyway, after hearing the Rush's, I'm probably going to get those. I have V & H Longshots on my Honda, and they are currently louder than my Harley. I've heard people recommend visiting dealerships on a weekend and listening to others' pipes. Hope it helps.

I have a 09 streetglide and called v&h company and they told me if you go with a slip -on "THE BASIC SLIP-ON" is there loudest slip-on...........does't make the most horsepwer but it is there loudest ! My buddy has the same bike ,but went with the reinhart slip-on's and mine are louder. But they are all unique and have there own tone !! My friend with the reinharts heard a 08 streetglide with rush slip-ons and said they were even louder than mine!! I couldn't get those through the dealer up here .
