no cans?

Running with no cans? Some say you have to re map so say you do not have to. I am considering it but I don't want to hurt my bike. Any real info or proof of either. You tube has a great example of the sound and it rocks

May sound cool in that video but is obnoxious as on the road. You will get tired of it even if you have earplugs or headphones.

I hate riding next to any bike that sounds like that Probably will only make your bike slower as well

Even if you had a restrictive oem header and mid pipe w baffling, you need more backpressure for the overlap between valves when the exhaust and inlet valves are open at the same time.

As the inert gases leave the combustion chambers, the fresh air/fuel is entering. Without backpressure the new mixture could come out of the exhaust port as well, especially at a higher rpm.

This is how exhaust valves are burnt.

Mine, w a full muzzy system cracks like a drag car at idle, sounds good and drowns out any harley in the area but if you like your engine you wont run it that way.

C'mon, keep noise under control guys. I'm so sick of the posers with no pipes bouncing off the rev limiter. Just makes people and cops hate us. My bike isn't exactly quiet, but I can cruise home in the neighborhood without waking up neighbors.

So true Shadman. When it gets to be too loud you may not even hear the sirens behind you. Plus, nobody likes a showboat reving at 3am. Friends of mine have found there bikes with wicked scratches (not from accidents). I would like to think of it as a result of idiots in the early morning.

i'd have to agree. i've been running open headers (added slip-in baffles) for about a year and i'm going back to a (closer to stock) 2-1 system. i think it sounds good on short trips but it's way too loud for even a 30 min. ride.
