C P: Seemed like the best full exhaust for my 1200 Custom. They look fantastic and are VERY loud. Easy to install too. I bought the quiet baffles the next day but had to remove one layer of the fiberglass wrap to get just the right sound. No big deal. Everyone's preference and tolerance are a bit different.Oct 11, 2013
A shopper asked:Just wondering if it is necessary to add a fuel pack or some other computer management system with the staggered shortshots on a 2010 883 Iron or will the bike still run OK if I just fit these pipes?Aug 21, 2013
Jonathan C:I was wondering the same! So I called V&H and they told me the engine will run too lean without a Fuelpak or other management system. So I bit the bullet and installed the Fuelpak and the motor runs great now!Aug 22, 2013
Sam N:I believe you'll be looking at a "Stage 1" download/tune once you get these pipes. That's the route I had to go when I recently had these put on my 2013 XL883N along with the Screamin' Eagle Heavy Breather.
I had a seperate shop install the pipes before having the HD do the download/tune. So I was riding the bike for a couple days with simply just the pipes installed, seemed fine but I certainly noticed a difference after the tune. Well worth the extra $$ to do it right, and the pipes look awesome. I get thumbs up every day. Hope this helps!Aug 22, 2013
Jason C:It will run fine. You can ride it for about 1000 miles without any concern. It would be a good idea to get a tune up if you also installed a new intake like the Heavy Breather. It wont be really bad for the bike not to, but flit will run a little hard and fuel economy wont be that great. plus uoull miss ouy on some horsepwer ad well. It cost around $400 to get it ran on the Dyno at the Harley Davidson dealerships. But it is worth it. The pipes are rad though! Best thing I've bought for my bike so far.Aug 22, 2013
Errol Y:Your bike will run much better if it is retuned after you replace the pipes and is mandatory if you replace the pipes and the air intake. I put a heavy breather intake on my bike when I changed to the short shots. The dealer put it on the dyno for a few hours and now I don't have to worry about it running too rich or too lean. My performance and gas mileage both increased! Not cheap but highly recommended.Aug 22, 2013
Matthew C:I have not found it necessary to have a fuel management device installed. So far I have put a little over 1K miles on my 2010 883 since I installed the pipes.
The only thing I have noticed (next to the great sound) is the occasional pop/slight backfire on deceleration. It doesn't happen often and is barely noticeable if you are not trying to hear it. Hope this helps.Aug 22, 2013
Andy I:Your bike will still run just fine with out putting a fule management system in your bike. However I put one on my bike and you can definitely tell the difference. Well worth the money. I hope this answer will help you with your question. Aug 22, 2013
Mark N:It is not necessary to add a fuel pack if you only add the exhaust, Harleys are run pretty rich in stock already, but if you add an air cleaner you'll might want toget a fuel pack more air flow aand exhaust together will need for fuelAug 22, 2013
