SOURCE: white smoke coming from exhaust

White smoke could indicate coolant in the combustion chamber. Not likely if you have an air-cooled bike. It could also mean that you are running in a cold climate, if the temp is around 20 or less I would call this normal.

If your bike is water cooled I would keep a close eye on your coolant level and oil level. A blown head gasket could allow water to get into the combustion chamber (causing the smoke) or mix with the oil (even worse). If you notice it using coolant I would have it checked out by a mechanic. If you want to check it yourself, do a compression check on both cylinders. If one is rather low, there is your problem.

SOURCE: Exhaust Pipes on 1995 Suzuki Intruder VS

Hi Lcyr. 
Any changes you make to the exhaust system will alter the sound the bike produces. The more you cut baffles,and open up the exhaust, the louder it will get.  What you do alter to a greater extent,is the state of tune of the motorcycle. Any changes to exhaust or inlet plumbing will require a retune of the engine to suit the modifications. This can be subtle to dramatic. Opening up exhausts can often rob low end power where exhaust port scavaging is relient on some back pressure for maximum effect.
 Best to work directly with an engine tuner to do the mods that are known you can get away with, or buy aftermarket prebuilt pipes that have a known previously tested state of tune. Nothing worse than doing something, that then costs money to put back the way it was on finding out it didnt work as well as was hoped.. Hope this has helped you steer your custom mods a little.  I can say with certainty, that I have ventured to do what you are doing many times in the past, and it has always cost me more money in tuning and... and well more parts :)  Cheers
regards robotek

To charge the battery you can connect to the positive terminal on the battery or the large lug on the starter, then connect the ground to any clean bolt on the frame as the battery negitive goes to chassis

SOURCE: removing harley davidson ultra classic gas tank

Drain the fuel either by siphening or removing the cross over tube at the front of the tank and letting it drain that way or just block off those cross over lines and leave the fule in the tank for removal.

0) remove seat
1) drain fuel
2) undo cross over line (bottom front of gas tank.
3) shut off pet **** and remove fuel line from pet ****.
4)there should only be 2 bolts holding the tank on, one at the top front of the tank and one at the back of the tank.

All in all a pretty easy (but possibloy messy) job.

How to remove baffles 2004 Harley davidson electra glide


If you have stock pipes you can't just remove the baffles . Some people on a budget will take a hammer and a Peace of pipe and knock out the piece that's blocking the center of the exhaust pipe which will give you more sound , but I don't recommend this I really recommend getting some slip ons.

How to remove baffles


The best way to learn how to do this is to go to youtube and watch a video on how to do it. That's the way I get the answers to all my stuff I have the same bike and have done all my work. Once you remove the baffles you will need to put tourque cones in the exhaust between the pipes and the cylinder head to provide enough back pressure so your engine will run right. The Harley shop has them they don't cost much. Just a doughnut shape piece of metal. Then the bike will run good and sound good too.

Baffle removal from 2003road king exhaust pipes


Hi Anonymous, don't even think about it, unless you are very fond of nightmares. Your ECM needs those baffles in order to play with the other children. Contact your local service or parts department for options. Good luck

Remove baffles


Hi Anonymous, you are asking for trouble your Ignition Control Module doesn't like her exhaust system violated. I would suggest a set of Supertrapp slip on's and check with Supertrapp for additional module reconfiguration. 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!

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.
