Ain't it cool? Your lookin and thinking WTF has he been drinkin? I'm sober and your looking at a dual FL type exhaust set-up for a Sporty.
I'm thinking this set-up would be kick-ass on the Bobber don't you? I mean of course I'd put my own stamp on the whole thing but I'd fab it pretty much the same way, since its been done no need for me to scratch my head about it right?
I would be presented with slightly different set of issues than this dude had though. I'd have to fit em to the rigid frame set-up. Also, I'm thinking old style fish tails or just straight shootin, no baffles, drag pipes.
I'm already going to hook up the FLHRCI with the Cobra Fi2000 active tuner and might do the same for the sporty with a similar tuner for non-EFI. This tuner is the cat's ass, it works real time as you ride based on your power band and driving habits and takes into account all types of accessories available. No more guessing or hunting for tune maps.
Anyhow, the tuner will dial up the right performance for the Bobber with what-ever pipes, air cleaner, carb and Engine build I decide to do be it a big bore or 110" S&S Stroker engine it will smooth it out while I ride the beast.
These pipes are pretty simplistic set-up and I can probably get away using most of a stock head pipe set of drags as the base for them. I don't want the stock factory Sporty cross over.
Should be pretty similar for a rigid frame as well. Actually on a rigid I'll gain room back there with a round oil bag and relocated battery box.
I could use those new pipe building kits instead of bending my own, we'll see I may think that will look too rough or maybe not. Then I'll just get the works triple plated after I get done tweaking and grinding the whole set-up to make it nice.
I could pop a pair of them old style Flathead pipes on the bike and rework those to fit. I think they are available as aftermarket.
Here's a pic of the dude right side config. This is the only thing I don't like about this guys set up, the cross over is ugly. IMO.
Keep the rubber side down.
