My friend has the same bike and wanted to do the same but unfortunately the exhausts have a catalyst in them so if he had altered them they would fail the mot. best bet would be to buy an after-market slip on silencer etc. hope this helps

WHAT IS STOCK LIFT ON TC 88 HARLEY


Not enough! LOL Most are .475 at the valve with far too little duration, even for the fat bikes.

After you modify your air cleaner and exhaust, a good set of low/midrange cams will really wake up that Road King. Stick with the torque cams, not the high RPM grinds the lighter Superglide guys run.

I have a 2000 HD Roadking with a stock exhaust. How can I make the stock exhaust louder


The age-old Harley stigma:Louder is better.
We all love the Harley sound but to get loud you may sacrifice performance. There are numerous after-market pipes that will improve performance and change sound but you cannot really do both. Drag pipes are the loudest but would be lousy looking on your Roadking and you lose mid-range response. Pipes have to be tuned and it is an exacting science.
Best bet is to go to J&P Cycles website and look at all the pipes. Call their tech support and ask what they recommend.
Here is an excellent web site

On my pipes one side is hot and the other is cold


Check the pipe right where they come out of the heads. It depends on what type of exhaust system you have on your Road King. If the stock exhaust is on the bike, the rear cylinder exhaust is directed to both mufflers. With the exhaust from the front and part of the exhaust from the rear cylinders going to the right side muffler, it gets more exhaust than the left side and runs hotter. Like I said, check the temp of the exhaust pipes at the cylinder heads. If one of them is cold, that cylinder is not firing. As long as both of the pipes are hot there, you're fine. Just ride the bike and have fun.

Ride Safe.

What is the stock carburetor's mm Bore on a 2003 HD FLHR RoadKing


Since I haven't ever heard of an FLHR-Y, I can only guess at the size of the carb. If the engine is the standard twin cam 88" engine, the carb should be a 40mm version. But, if the engine is one of the "factory hopped up jobs" such as a 103" or somthing else, I have no idea of the size of the carb.

Exhaust


I am very pleased with my modifications on my Road King Classic, and to tell you the truth, I have "invested" the months, almost the years, in order to get perfect combination (from my point of view). So, here is my recommendation: 1. Stock pipes 2. Wild Pig Pipes/mufflers/slip ons (1 3/4" baffles - not too loud, 2" baffles - quite loud) 3. Screamin' Eagle Stage One Kit (read as: more air) 4. DFO (Digital Fuel Optimizer) to adjust everything, to "help" all new parts to work in harmony. Adjustment will be done via producer's web site, in co-operation with very kind people from Dobeck Performance Forum. Also, I have to emphasize that I did everything taking into account affordable prices. Hope this helps.
