    I recently picked up a used set of vance & Hines Big Shots Staggered on Ebay. Paid next to nothing for them. When they arrived, they were like new. One small mark, but not noticeable. Put them on last Saturday and WOW, do they look and sound GREAT. :yes :D

    Not knowing what pipes you took off, rejetting(carb) or remapping(efi) may be needed. A drastic change may have adverse effects. But there again......maybe not.

    Been riding my Softail with the new exhaust for almost a week now. I love the sound and the performance. I had the Softail stock headers with V&H slip-ons. It has neen reprogramed and has the stage I kit installed. These pipes make a noticeable difference in kick.

    Getting short shots next week. Taking off and offering for sale SE II's including header pipes. I'm sure the remap that was done, will handle the new short shots and was told by several techs the same. Not really looking to put more $$ into a fuel processor. Thoughts?

    I put the V & H short shots on my 2013 iron with the K&N high flow and Dobec TFI for around $700. I did the work myself and it sounds, looks and runs great.
