  1. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up.

     

    07 Kingpin

     

    Some years ago I put a RPW Big Deal 2into1 exhaust with the S&S airbox, VFC3, all done by LLoydz. Fantastic combination but it was too loud! Earplugs made things tolerable, but i hated the total isolation. Funny thing is my wife never complained and everyone loved the sound of the pipes. As luck would have it I dumped the bike last year and scraped up the muffler.

     

    This year I ordered a new muffler from RPW had them make it 4" longer, asked Lloyd about putting new cams in for a little bit more grunt on the bottom end. We spoke about how loud my pipes were and he said it might not be the pipes! Might be the S&S airbox (WTF), cant go into details even though he spoke english to me it could have been any language really had no idea what he was talking about. He suggested I go with the Torque Tubes for overall increase instead of cams.

     

    Picked up the bike yesterday and yes really nice increase in power but best of all its not as loud, still has that great sound i always remembered but not obnoxious. The boominess in driver seat is gone.

    So if you have the S&S airbox and your pipes are too loud for you, maybe its not the pipes!

     

    Lesson learned!
