Folks say maybe, but let's look at the facts. Your Harley comes from the factory too lean for it's own good. There are people getting first degree burns on the inside of their thighs if they get caught-up in traffic and can't get air flowing to the engine! This heat can be reduced by literally 100 degrees at a stand-still by adding some sort of fuel management that improves the fuel mix. Adding freer flowing exhaust pipes will only make the engine run hotter.So your saying I can get away with out the air filter or power commander.Will my bike have any problems if I just install the exhaust pipes?
There's such a thing as too loud?Maybe. I installed V&H SSS on my 04 Deuce after the Stage 1 was done. It sounded like the 4th of July (popped like a mo fo) when backing off the throttle. Once I installed the PC III - situation improved 100%. As for the Short Shot Staggereds - I quickly got to the point of hating them (I also installed Thunder Monster power baffels in them). Got to admit it was kind of cool getting that 'Harley' sound (particularly compared to the stock exhaust) for about a week, but then I quickly got to the point I was embarrased to ride it, it was so loud. To each their own I guess. I think I'm gonna leave the stock exhaust on the my new Ultra.
But then what do you expect on a Geezer Glide.
i would it makes it run alot better that is what i did and i love itI'm looking to put new vance&hines shortshots staggered on my 08' Dyna Superglide Custom. I'm getting conflicting answers on whats needed if I put the new pipes on. My question is do I need to put a new air filter and power commander or not.
