Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FLSTSC - FLSTSCI Softail Springer Classic
No.Although, it is a common practice to de-tune bikes at the factory so that they meet emissions requirements. All new injected HD's can expect a 4-6% increase in horsepower and 2-3% increase in torque just by dyno tuning the bike straight off the showroom floor. If you're riding a Low with a carb, then you do not need to have it re-jetted for slip-on's. If you're changing the exhaust from where it bolts to the engine, then yes you should. Dyno tuning is not as useful on carbureted bikes compared to injected ones, in fact I could tune a carbureted Low just as easily with an Exhaust Gas Analyzer as a dyno and save you $300. You're probably not that interested in minor differences in horsepower if you're doing slip-ons rather than a whole Screaming Eagle Stage 2 kit. Bolt 'em on and ride...
