Default V&H True Duals VS High Output Pro Pipe

Wow
Thats all I can say. I purchased the pro-pipe full system and installed it over the weekend. Guys I am not kidding after doing some re-search and thinking that its not possible to gain 10-15% more acceleration and torque I was dead wrong. Why it took me so long, I guess I was in DENIAL.
The High Output pro-pipe with the Fuel Pack Kicks ***.
I am running these on a 2009 Street Glide 96"
I used to be at 3K Rpm and the speedo was at about 73 to 75 mph. Great, normal, average whatever you may say. This was on the freeway.
Yesterday took a ride 2 up and I was at 83-85 mph at about 2800 RPM.
The bike is screaming. LOVE THE DEEP GROWL.


I guess I am just too excited so I am sharing it will all of you.

Good for you. I am in the process of looking at the zillion possibilities out there for my bike. Been told by many that Furl Moto stainless pipe and jackpot muff are a good set up. So many to choose from. Thanks for the input.

I can say nothing but very good results with all of my mods that inlcuded the Pro pipe HO.

Me personally I am a believer in the SERT.

Wait until you switch the cams.

Unless you've also changed your gearing, your bike will be running the same speed at any given rpm no matter what exhaust system you install. With more torque, you might get to that speed quicker, but your rpms won't drop at cruising speed unless you run a taller (smaller numerically) final drive.

It's making less torque so the clutch is slipping less.

Last fall I heard a set of High Outputs on a Street Glide & they sounded great. I have Vance & Hines Power duals on my 103 Ultra, and Rush Big Louies right now, but I loved those High Outputs. I don't mind loud either. Think I'm changing to High Outputs this spring. Hope they're as loud as the Big Louies!

I have drag pipes on my Evo SF right now but I have a pair of those pipes in the basement with the paint drying on them. I'm looking forward to putting them on even more now that I see what they are going to look like.

My bike's in the process of getting tuned after I added a pro pipe over the winter. Curious as to what made you decide on the HO pro pipe for your 96" over the standard pro pipe? I stuck with the standard on my build (in sig below) but I did do the baffle drilling mod suggested by a few tuners. Enjoy .....
