    i will confess up front, I have joined this board to get info for my father, he has passed his beloved 97 Valkryie on to me and has bought a 09 Road King. He loves the bike and wants to put new exhaust on it, he is looking for a better sound and performance is not his primary objective.

    He is being told a lot about the ins and outs of after marked pipes and since he lives a few states away i told him i would get some tech advice for him,

    can anyone point me to a thread on exhaust upgrade 101? I need basic info such as what is a "slip on", can this mod be done without going to a dealer, and if anyone has recommendations that would be great!

    Thanks everyone for your time, i love these community forums!

    Lots of information on suitable slip on exhausts...just remember to keep your takeoffs in the event local and state regulations require it. Or use Screaming Eagle types which are supposed to be EPA approved...
