yup...just pulled the trigger on a Dyna Glide Wide :eek

Right now I'm riding a Honda Shadow Spirit 750 but decided it was time to upgrade to a real bike. The Honda is nice but a little under powered and a bit light on the freeway.

Hope to be collecting my 2006 FXDWGi next week.....excited much!!

First thing I'll be doing though is changing the pipes...I have to say I hate the stock ones. Haven't decided yet but either VH Big Radius 2 into 2, or maybe the Cobra Street Rods that I put on my Honda.

any advice either way would be good.

I'l be back with a ton of questions soon

Yep congrats. Check out the Drag Specialties Python staggered duals. They look and sound great on my 04 Low Rider.

Personally, I like #2 (not THAT #2!). I'm not in to the swept pipes like #1. Sometimes they fit the bike like one of the newer style stretched choppers.

Have these on my St. Bob. Absolutely luv the sound they produce. Not overly loud unless you are getting right into the throttle hard, then they bark beautifully. Also love the way they look on my bike to boot. Cant go wrong with these...Now, I hope you are at least putting a Big Air Kit of your choosing, n download or fuel management system (with auto-tune if can swing it) on with your pipes so u get proper performance n not just different sound. Bigger exhaust means more air can flow thru, n at least a download is needed for it all to work together properly for best sound and performance. just my $.02 (worth less than .01,lol)...

Try some Milwaukee Twins Long & Low 2 into 2's . Beautiful set of pipes sold by J&P Cycle Parts .They will make your Wide Glide sound like an ole-school Harley !

I went with option 1. right now I'm not changing air filter, and I read that the V&H FuelPak isn't legal for sale or use in CA

If you are not going to do the fuel pak you might want to have the stock ECM tweeked to fit the pipes as they are way more high flow than the stock ones. California liberal laws are so stupid.
