Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom

1 Answer

20 lbs psi after doing an oil change.

I have a 1996 Sportster 1200c that has Screamin Eagle heads for sure, SE Plug wires, Vance and Hines pipes, Drag Specialties Voltage Regulator, I have just did the 2500 mile oil change and replaced the filter and primary oil, I used Harley 20w50 Synthetic oil instead of the standard 20w50, this is the first 2500 miles after Adventure Harley in Dover Ohio had rebulit the rod bearing in the front cylinder, so the whole engine has been apart and put back together again last Sept. at the dealership, any deas as to what it could be?

Thank You in Advance

Back fire with vance hines pipes


Sounds like it is running lean. The ECM must be remapped for a performance breather and/or free flowing pipes. I would use H-D Super Tuner or have a dealer do a digital download to remap the ECM properly for the changes you have obviously made. You may do great harm to your engine if you run it without the mapping change as the VE will be changed and the ECM doe not know what is physically going on with VE if it is not mapped into the ECM

I'd like to remove/modify the baffles. Any tips/suggestions? (07 St Bob with Screamin Eagles)


The best solution to this in order to keep performance and sound qualities is to replace your current exhaust.
tho the screamin eagle exhaust systems allow more flow, they are not up to a racing par along with vance and hines or thunder header or so on
screamin eagle is kept in guidelines under the epa so sound is on the lesser side and so is performance,
i would check out thunderheader.net
their systems are the best performing and sound 100% amazing
i will warn you that they are not the prettiest things out their tho
other than that there is on some model screamin eagle exhausts is a small allen button head screw that will remove the baffles. and some don't

I have a 2000 Honda VT1100 Sabre Shadow. It's got aftermarket Vance and Hines pipes. It continues to have a backfire when moving up through the gears. I've had the jets (and K&N filter and plugs)...


When you installed the Vance and Hines pipes did you use new gaskets? Popping and backfiring is often caused by leaking copper o-rings in the head to head pipe connection , or head pipe to muffler gasket. Sealing the system will prevent oxygen igniting the unburned fuel in the exhaust pipe. Hopefully , this is all you need to stop the popping.

My 2008 1200 sportster is back firing and shooting blue flames since i have installed vance and hines short shots. i also installed the power commander 3 and screamin eagle stage 1 filter. Is it normal to...


Well, yes it is somewhat normal, you have hot rodded it up. What happens is a bit of unused gas now gets buy the cylinder and explodes in the pipe instead of the cylinder. It happens due to scavenging, the new shorter pipes and the better filter allow more fuel to move quicker. If she has a carburetor it will need to be re-jetted but still may shoot flames. If fuel injected she will need dealer help.

Loud Vance and Hines long shots


Depending on the pipes you purchased, they will be stamped as to whether or not they meet noise requirements. Many if not most aftermarket pipes do not. Sorry.

Question about Vance and Hines quiet baffles


about 3-5db but you must remember db is not a linear scale but logirythmic. basicallyy the baffles will remove the harsh rasp off the pipe and make them deep in sound, when cold they will be as loud as normal but once they have some heat in them they quieten down
