You say to run well, so are you saying it will run poorly with just the pipes alone? The reason I ask is because past bikes I have had, specifically my 2012 Harley fat bob had no issues with just an exhaust change.
What are your thoughts?
Thank you again for the input.
Congrats Bert on your purchase and I am sure you have miles of sMiles coming your way. I know I am running a V92 but the concept is the same. Do the air filter too! My ride had a Stage 1 flash and pipes (very well ventilated) with a stock air box and a K&N filter in it. I opened the airbox up and a NOTICIBLE improvement in performance as well as sound believe it or not. Took it one step further and added the K&N big sucker on there and WOW! Crack that throttle and you can hear that engine gulping in the air as well as another very noticable improvement in performance.
Bottom line from my experience is do the air as well as the exhaust. Dunedin is hitting the nail on the head. Since I rode about 5,000 with the stock air and then another 5k with the big sucker, I know without out a doubt the performance and SOUND is better.
Safe riding! Tim
