Both of the systems you mention are good systems. Best thing to do is to hear them on a bike before making a decision. The 02 sensors will handle the fuel in the mid range but the lower and upper range will still be lean. Some sort of fuel enrichment should be used for best performance and long engine life. I like the TFI and run one myself on my 07 RK. Easy install and setup and they work well in all applications except big inch motors with many mods. http://www.dobeckperformance.com/

2003 harley davidson full dresser back fires or pops sound on the left side pipe when i let go the the gas handle at around 2000rpms it all started when i had new cams put in


Popping sound at the exhaust is usually due to a very lean setting which causes unburnt fuel to burn late in the exhaust pipe and happens when you are going at a high rpm with a closed throttle making it even leaner. My bike had the same problem and most Harleys are factory tuned lean which is very bad as the engine runs hot. After putting free flow Rhinehart pipes like i did, it became worst so i installed the Vance & Hines fuelpak and now my bike runs so silent and cooler. A great difference from before.

I am replacing my V&H pipes on my 2012 fxdwg with Rinehart Crossback system, the bike has SE heavy breather and SE tuner. Will i have to get the bike re tuned with the new pipes?


Hi Anonymous, you can either drive it and see how it performs or give the nice folks at Rinehart a call for suggestions. Good luck and have nice day.

I would like my vtx 1300 to be a little louder. can i drill a small hole in the back of the muffler to make it louder will this work any pros or cons please


Honda mufflers typically have several baffle walls You may need a drill 14 or more inches in length to punch through enough of these walls to make a noticeable difference. Changing the back pressure of the exhaust will also lean the mixture. This may cause a bad hesitation on take off. This will happen if you change the exhaust system also. To correct the hesitation you may need to install a jet kit on a carburetor model (about $100) or install a Power Commander on a fuel injected model (about $400 plus programming). In both cases your fuel economy will go down. Your stock system has a five year warranty, should not blue like an aftermarket pipe (unless you leave the choke on too long), and have a good long service life. Unfortunately there is no easy solution for your problem. Any aftermarket system will be way to loud (especially on the freeway) and drilling may not give you the desired sound you are looking for leaving you angry and frustrated. Consider a different option, One of the best sound options I have heard was a set of stock Harley pipes adapted to a Yamaha Virago 1100. Most Harley riders change out there exhaust systems before they even ride there bikes which should offer a cheap high quality system that can be adapted to your stock headers with common automotive adapter pipes and custom build it yourself supports (a simple modification of your stock pipe support/mounts). By not damaging your stock system you can always put it back on if you do not get the desired effect.

Broken exhaust bolt front not the one closest to frame how to fix


you will have to remove the exhaust from the head
if there is any of the stud left protruding from the head there is a tool that you can buy from your automotive spare parts dealer to remove the remaining stud
If no part of the stud is protruding you will have to drill a hole in the centre of the stud and use an easy-out to remove it, use some penetrating oil first to loosen any corrosion etc

Exhaust bracket behind rear cylinder on 2007 FLHX


If I follow you right, this tab is just butting up against the exhaust pipe?

If that is the case, I think there should be a clamp there that wraps around the pipe and the tab the support the pipe. Don't forget the exhaust system moves with the engine on the rubber mounted motors.

Also I think the bolt is there for slight adjustment in the alignment of the pipe.

I have a 2008 Harley Crossbones with Rinehart Crossover exhaust. It just isn't loud enough for me. I am used to no baffles in my carb bikes. How do I get more sound. Cut baffles?


Check after market pipe makers like Fubar or Kirker.Don't mess with baffles it aint worth the hassle of re-setting the computer.New duel pipes with straight pipe design will come with the new mixture settings.

How to install a set of Vance&Hines Pro High Output Pipes onto a 2009 Harley super glide


It's basicaly take the old pipes off, move some hardware to the new pipes, both the new pipes on. You'll probably have to move the exhaust flanges and the split rings from your old pipes to your new ones. If the new pipes came with "torque cones" simply drop then into the pipes before you put them on. Be careful not to strip an exhaust bolt hole, spray some penetrating lube on the studs.

Once you replace the pipes, you bike might not run too well as you'll probably need to make some computer changes. Can't help you there.

Exhaust pipes discolored


It may indicate that but that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it. If the bike sat for a long time while running, the exhaust can get hot enough to discolor the pipes...but that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with the motor. Improper carburetor settings can make the bike run lean (not enough fuel) which, in turn, can cause a hotter than normal exhaust and discolor the pipes...again, this does not indicate there is anything wrong with the motor. Ask if the pipes are stock or after-market. After-market pipes are a minefield for motorcycle riders. When the manufacturer puts the stock pipes on, they are tuned to the motor to give peak performance which usually results in little to no bluing of the pipes. Aftermarkets can throw the tune off and discoloration is the result. Ask the seller if there have been any changes to the bike...such as after-market pipes, rejetting the carburetor, changing the intake, etc. Most likely the seller will say yes, there have been some changes made. Please note: THIS DOES NOT MEAN THE BIKE IS BAD OR THE ENGINE IS WRONG.

I have a 2006 FLHTCUI and want to instal a set of Bub Rinehart 2 into 1 exhaust. I would like to know the "ft lbs" / "in lbs" of torque for the flanges. I also have a Screaming Eagle stage 1 intake and...


The torque for the flange nuts is 100-120 in-Ibs. The Ride Plus is a preloaded tuner that allows you to switch between a economy map and a performance map. If you are looking for the most power out of your Rinehart I would recommend a PowerCommander or HDs SuperTuner and have a dyno run.
