    :unsureI have a FLSTC Softail 2013, it has been fitted with Vance Hines exhaust end caps; I have been told by the dealer it does not require stage one conversion. A different dealer tells me I do need a stage one conversion to compensate for the different exhaust. Does anyone have any suggestions?:unsure

    What size baffles are in exhaust? 1.75" or less and you are good to go. Remember dealers are in the business of selling their wares. So hopefully you will get many replies in helping you make the proper decision....:s

    These bikes are way to lean from the factory, any help with more fuel will be an added plus in power and your bike will run cooler

    Also would it do any damage to the engine if I removed the baffles altogether?

    It may not run as good and the sound will not be right, your ride you decide
