Almost any time you change either the exhaust or the air filter on a motorcycle, you must retune the fuel system.

If your bike is carb equipped, you'll probably have to go up one size on the slow jet and idle the engine up a bit. The idle speed screw is located at the top of the carb towards the front of the bike. You may have to take the air filter cover off to get to it. Changing the slow jet will require a partial disassembly of the carb. If your slow jet is a #45, you'll need either a #48 or a #50 jet.

If your bike is fuel injected, you'll have to take it to a dealer to get the fuel map changed.

Good Luck

I want more sound from my pipes (australian specs).. how do i knock the restrictions out of the mufflers?


If you remove the baffles from your exhaust pipes the ignition timing and tuning will need attention or it will run rough.
I find it best to buy Screaming Eagle pipes or Slash Cut pipes, they have the correct resistance for backpressure but are very loud!!!!
If you wish to remove the baffles, the procedure will depend on the design of the pipes. There is usually a "pop" rivet somewhere underneath them that if you drill it out the baffles will pull out.
In the UK they fail their roadworthyness test if they have no baffles.
Loud pipes save lives, ride safe!

No spark on my Harley


How are you checking your spark? On the newer computer controlled engines, there is a "compression sensor". If you take the plugs out and try to check for spark like we used to do, you won't get a spark. Put your plugs back in and then use a set of test plugs to check your spark.

If you're still not getting a spark, check for voltage at the primary side of the coil.

Exhaust interchangeable


I think so as long as the engine size is the same. I'm not sure that Evo pipes will fit onto a TwinCam. I bought a pair of Screaming Eagle Slash Cut and they bolted right up no problem. Easy instal
