I haven't been on for a while. Last June I made a huge mistake!! I sold my 2007 Stratoliner and bought a gorgeous 2014 Indian Chief Vintage!! That bike looked incredible and sounded even better!
I quickly realized however that performance wise it was not half the bike my Stratoliner was!! Anyway, I managed to finally sell it yesterday, lost a few thousand, live and learn, and found a 2013 Stratoliner S with 5K miles for $7500!! Rode it home last night, great to have a Stratoliner again!! I figured I would give you all the backround for your amusement!!
So, this bike is all stock, so I will want to do the pipes, airbox, send the ECU to Ivan etc. But I wanted to see what y'all thought were the best pipes for sound and performance. I am considering the Freedom Performance Racing Complete Dual Exhaust System. Has anyone on here tried them and if so did you like them?
If not them possibly the Cobra Speedster X-tra Longs Chrome. The Cobras are around $600, the Freedom Performance are around $900. I like the look of the pipes on either side of the bike
but I am curious about performance
Anyhow, just looking for opinions. I will be doing comfort items first like engine guard with hiway pegs, Mustang seat, larger Kuryakin grips etc. Probably won't start performance tweaking until end of summer or next spring as I am getting a knee replaced soon so riding season will likely be short this year for me unfortunately
Keep smiling and ridin
