Default Exhaust system-Again

I have ridden Harley's for the last 20 years but am now riding a Vegas and love it.
I knew all about Harley's but next to nothing about the Vegas except how to service it and install basic accessories.

I don't like the stock exhaust for several reasons (weight, appearance etc.) and want to go with either Basani Street Pro slash cuts or Victory stage I straights.

My dealer wants $1100 turnkey for the stage 1 system and considerably less for the Street Pros but recommends a Power Commander to go with the Basani's.

Is the stage 1 system considerably lighter in weight than the stock system (I'm not into sound)? I know that the Street Pros weigh less.

Thanks for any help or opinions.

Jerry

OK:

I just ordered the Basani Slash Cuts from eBay for $500 and will install them myself. Will play it by ear after I install them.

The Vic stage 1 straights are still fairly heavy... Also the Vic stage 1 flash is garbage, adds next to no HP. I think the Bassani and PCV is the way to fly. On my Highball (which is essentially a Vegas) the Bassani pro street turnouts and PCV woke that thing up like crazy. Shifting from first to second hard on the throttle was instant wheelie 😄

Wise decisions on all counts Vegasrider, youll get a good result chopping out the stock airbox and fitting either a Ness, LLOYDZ, or S&S intake, ..Torquetubes even if your budget allows.
Add in the timing advance wheel and a pro tune on that PCV and youll really be Rocking!

Thanks for all the input. Once Slash Cuts are installed,
can I run the bike with or without remapping (Power Commander or equivalent) and with or without O2 sensors connected (until I can do both) without damage to the engine?

Thanks for reminding me to buy new gaskets.

Thanks for all the help. Jerry.

Well I wouldnt myself as its gonna be even leaner than stock once you fit a free breathing exhaust.
Some people may run without an increase in fuelling.
Its your bike so bottom line its up to you and how much you value your engine, particularly your exhaust valves which run very hot anyway,

Shouldn't he be ok until he puts a freer flowing air cleaner on? It works that way with the X bikes.

I would think unplug the O2's and he should be good to go.
