New exhaust

Thinking about either a Vance & Hines or cobra. My question is, when installing a new slip on is anything else needed to be done with the fuel injection. In Star's promotion they say no. Thanks in advance

you don't have to change anything else if you just go with a slip on. you won't be changing the back pressure enough.

Put the slip on from Vance & Hines on the wife's 950T. Sounds good.

Threw a cobra slip-on with no other mods no problem. Definitely noticed an improvement actually, mostly in fuel economy. Next will be and air intake and a FMS
