    Well, on Friday i went to trade the Fatboy in for a new one, when a 2010 Flame blue Pearl, Road king caught my eye. I took the demo out, and at first i felt i was leaning to far forward and my shoulders hurt. When i got back the dealer put a tallboy seat on, and it felt great, also if i get the bike they are going to throw a set of heritage bars on to give me 2" more.
    I say if i get it.....ok ok i put money down, and i am calling tommorow to confirm. The hardbags and color got me.

    So, what i need help with is the exhaust, i got V+H lonshots, and love the loud deep noise. I want to do something to have a sound like this.
    Can i do slip ons? if so what kind
    do i need a tfi?
    Any idea of cost

    A TFI will richen up a lean bike and make it run better even stock. As far as the mufflers. it depends on how loud you want it.

    so to be cash conservative, do i have to do the air cleaner right now? can i do the slip ons and just the TFI. Would it be a pain to do the air cleaner after?
    Glider, i want LOUD !!

    If I were to do it over I would go with V&H Ovals (not monsters) first, then TFI and air cleaner as the budget permits. I really like the looks and sound of the ovals.

    I know what you mean about the color. It was a deal maker for me too. I put V&H monster ovals on and (at least for me) the sound is beautiful and they look really sharp from the rear too.
