Hi, Alan from Scotland here.
New Guy.

Quick question someone may be able to help me with:
Fitted Vance & Hines straightshots to my 1200 sportster today.
Awesome sound and seems to have picked up the bottom end power a bit but has anyone experienced any problems with these pipes ? Bike is a 2008 fuel injected model.
Be nice to know of any potential problems (Apart from the local police taking a 'Revenue generating' interest).

Thanks.
Al.

Being that far north thought a husky and sled would be more appropriate!

Well Hello Eastern Iowa,

Nice to talk to you.

Been out again with the loud pipes and reckon I've slackened a tooth or two...

Must be good !

Welcome Alan.

On the pipes, and especially when accompanied by less restrictive intake as well, the usual first caution would be that you could expect the fuel mix to run lean and hot by opening up intake and/or exhaust w/o a tune, but, I'm not sure if your bike is O2 sensor controlled and it might just compensate automatically.

Somebody else got that info?
