    Just bought an 09 heritage with straight pipes. I'm not fond of that much noise so my dealer put vance and hines long shots on it. I asked if the motor needs retuning after changing the pipes. He says no the motor will do this automatically. Am I worrying about nothing?

    Typically when changing just mufflers no problem. If pipes are also changed then some help is needed. With the exhaust done you may want to do stage 1 air cleaner upgrade and add a TFI. You will then notice the full potential of your bike.

    This bike has a screamin eagle stage 4 kit. My worry is that I'll be driving this bike home(1450 miles) and I don't want any problems.

    The ticket he showed me said "screamin eagle stage 4 103 bigbore kit" It was installed by treasure island harley davidson in Florida. I believe the price on the ticket was about 3200.00 I asked if this is a streetable machine as I don't want a hot rod that will give me trouble in heavy traffic. He assured me I would not be unhappy with it and if I don't like it for any reason he will refund my deposit.

    Just got home with my bike. The new exhaust did change things a little. When you get into it the bike will sputter and cough before it takes off. Took it to my local HD dealer. They said this is common with the change of the pipes and the difference in altitude between Florida and Iowa. They are going to get it on the Dyno thursday.
