Default Help with Exhaust Please

Please take it easy on me if these questions have been beat to death. I've been looking through page after page of pipes. I am kind of leaning towards the Bassani Pro Streets but I am just wondering about the whole package. Can I just put the pipes on and ride or is the Tuner, etc a must when changing the exhaust. I guess my question is: What other items go along with buying a new pipe. My bike is a stock 2013 highball with approx. 500 miles. Thanks for the help

I'm going to let others more experienced than me tell you about pipes and what else goes with them. But I will tell you this; if its more power you are after, put about 2500+ more miles on her. The 106 takes a long time to break in and yours is still pretty tight. If you want more noise and you install pipes, or drill the baffles as I did, you want to improve the intake flow. The easiest and simplest power improvement is Lloydz adjustable timing wheel.
Add a signature telling us about your bike. That way, we can be of more help in future posts.

As long as you have looked at all the pipes what do you want in the future. You want power am guessing maybe you want loud witch in time you;ll be here asking how to quiet it down.
I would email Rylan at The Vick shop and ask him. First you have to decide what you really want. Rylan will answer you with in a day hes a great guy.

Thanks for the input. I would not say that I want loud, I just want more than what it has stock. More power would be a plus but I am happy with it for now. Just wondering what I need to be budgeting for. If I can just buy the pipe and slip it on that is one price but do I need to budget for pipe, tuner, etc. The last thing I want to do is buy a $600 pipe to find out I need another $1000 to make it run right. I hope that make sense.
Thanks,

Actually you can get an answer from Rylan faster, he prefers a phone call vs. email.
So I've been told.

Sending a 1-1/8" hole saw up the pipes and drilling out the baffles is easy and free. Sound is exactly what I prefer; neighbors don't know when I'm coming or going, yet she barks when I roll it on. Nice purr on the highway.

Thanks. I may give that a try if I am going to be in this for $1200 to $1500.

Oops...mia culpa. Could he not drill the baffles on his bike?

Not sure, his may be the same, but may not be so i would hate to see him wreck something thinking he was good to go.
