    Just installed Full-Sac True Duel kit on 06 Road King. Bike runs great ,the problem is the left side is now hot on leg when standing still on bike, is there any way to adjust pipe to lose some of the heat.

    Bagger 06; are you running a tuner? If so, you're probably lean & need to adjust fuel a bit. This will cool things down...

    Tru duals will cause a definite need to be readjust fueler.

    Keep in mind that the stock header split the rear cylindar exhaust between both the left and right side mufflers. With the true dual setup all of the exhaust from the rear cylindar is running through the left side header.

    I run Samson true duals and also find that rear header to be quite hot at times on the back of my leg.

    Adding fuel to the rear cylindar should cool it off to some degree, but that doesn't mean it is the best way to address the issue. Your air/fuel ratio is normally set for to maximize the output of the motor.

    Life is full of comprimise and trade offs.

    Double check that your map did down load to the tuner, if it didnt go you may be still running lean. I run rineheart pipes with the thundermax and when the down load did go the change was significant. Did you have any decel popping before the tuner down load and is it gone now?
