I own a 2006 Roadliner, and I love the look of the factory exhaust. I am trying to increase the noise without ruining the look of the bike. I tried drilling out the baffle, but it's too long, and very difficult to get air to pass through. I would love to send the exhaust to someone who could customize it. Can anyone give me any leads?

Gutting stock exhaust

John?

A couple of things to keep in mind that you may know. The front end of the muffler is a catalectic converter. This will reduce sound a little. Ahead of the muffler is the Ex-Up Valve, this will reduce sound some when it is not full open.

I don't hear much about people gutting the stock exhaust because it is so difficult. One person cut the rear off the muffler, then worked on the converter and the rest from the front. I don't know how successful they were. I would think cutting would be hard on the chrome. I do know it was difficult.

Most seem to go with an aftermarket exhaust.

Change stock exhaust

I have an 07' Stratoliner Midnight that I felt needed some noise as well. Not so much because of volume, but more for some "throatiness". Instead of modding the originals I spent the extra bucks on a Vance and Hines 2 into 1 system. I also got a K&N air filter at the same time. The pipes sound awesome. They don't scream like strait pipes, but they do have a rumble that is a head turner (even for an FI system). I put a power commander III on it to adjust the various changes, and used the downloaded map.

This is my first bike and I did it all myself with a little time and care.

Roadhouse slip-on.

i looked at the stock muffler and said no-way to mod this right away. i bought a Roadhouse slip-on and am very happy with it. it sounds so nice at idle or cruz, not ill tempered or to loud and when you give it the snot you know you are on a big block bike no doubt about it. it will bellow loud as hell and as soon as you back off you have your nice bike back. very nice sound and less money than 2-1 system. i also didnt ruin any stock parts for the bike and it was very easy and fast to install it. my advice is to go this route unless you have money to burn. i got mine used off Ebay for $285.00 i think a good deal. even at full price its like 380.00 which is still not to bad. i would think if you did anything to your stock exhaust it is probably ruined i hate to say, just do mthe slip-on and you can always put it back to stock if you need to. good luck with your choice.
