    Hi I am new to the forum and need some ideas/help regarding my 2011 Road King. Just had a stage one air cleaner and Super Tuner installed. So now that I'm bringing more air in I know I need to go with a freer flowing exhaust. Do I go with slip on mufflers or complete exhaust. Would like to kick up the sound a bit but don't want to wake the neighbors either. Any ideas or advice greatly appreciated.

    I agree, you may find out that you like the look of a full exhaust system. Plus now they make them with a quiet baffle, or a louder standard baffle.

    I did the same thing to my 2011 Ultra Limited. I went with the Rush 2 inch reverse slash. I now have almost 2,000 miles on. At first I thought they were super loud. Now, I feel they sound exactly how I wanted it to. Completely happy with the bike and the mufflers.

    Sledboy, I have the Rush 1.75 baffle's and think they are to quiet, do the 2" bark nicely. You said super loud how much would that be over stock? Thank's Tim

    I kept the cross-under pipe and went with V&H slip-ons... Both the big hole size. Not the small hole echo chamber one on left... ?? 350$/400$

    I have a Nice Rumble and it isn't too loud.. I have had plenty of Loud exhaust, some too loud, but this Deep rumble is very nice on MY 09 Road King..

    Well, you have to understand, I was coming off of a Yamaha. I had ridden Yamaha for 31 years before making the leap. Yes, the 2" bark nicely when getting on it, but then settle down once up to speed. It has a nice, deep sound from idle on. We have received a lot of positive comments from others in our club about how my bike sounds. I would say these are legal, but not by much.
