November 15, 2008I am changing exhaust systems and would like to hear from others about their experience with their choices. I am not concerned with big numbers on dyno but best performance on street and usable power plus great sound. I am considering V&H big shots staggereds *or* possibly V&H pro-pipe. Bike is 2005 Heritage 95inch,10.25 se cast pistons,211 cams,pcIII,stock heads, 3.37 gearing and V&H longshots. Dealer advised big shots staggereds and told me my pipes were too long for my setup. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
November 15, 2008The pro-pipe would be a great choice.
November 16, 2008V H two into one sounds great and adds a nice little bit of performance. If that''s the Pro pipe then go for it. V H pipes will discolor if you don''t have both barrels tuned to the proper fuel to air mixture.
November 17, 2008Again........check out RB Racing''s offering.
November 17, 2008In my opinion, the VH sound awesome for your bike but loud, If thats what you want.
November 18, 2008I have big shots staggered and I put thunderheaders on my wifes sporty. Both are pretty loud and the bikes run nice.
December 6, 2008I decided on the V&H Pro-pipe. Ordered from Direct Harley Parts. Also purchased the competition baffle. I installed system this morning with the standard baffle. The sound is great and probably loud enough. I was told that the competition baffle is much louder. It has a big opening about 2-inch in the center. I took it out for a cool ride this morning and am pleased with the way it sounds and performs. I will probably have another custom map and dyno-tune to try to get slight ping out. I think last tune may have too much advance. Will post any changes later. Thanks for all the advice. Anyone used Flatline Customs in Castle Hayne,NC for tuning?
December 7, 2008I went to Flatline for my dyno tuning. They were absolutely good. You need to make an appointment. I do believe they do the dyno runs only on fridays. The price was reasonable also. Three years later my bike still runs great.
