    i'm lookin to change out my xover pipes on my 2003 roadking flhp. i'd like long rifle or long shot gun pipes, ones that dont get to close to passenger pegs.
    i wanna know if i can run softail pipes on a roadking?
    is it just the mounting brackets that are different , or floorboard clearance, etc?? thnx,myles

    It may be possible but as the 2 frames are different the you may have to make your own exhaust mounting bracket
    biggest problem is that the softail engine is solid mounted to the frame and the exhaust is also mounted to the frame
    road king engine is rubber mounted so exhaust also needs to be rubber mounted to isolate it from the frame or it will transmit engine vibration
