Default Duel exhaust on Heritage Softail classic

Is it possible to go with duel exhaust on a heritage softail classic? If it is, any thought on a good package? What are the advantages and will I to need upgrade the tuner and air filter?

I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the exhaust. I was thinking slip ons but why do slip on if most of the bikes I see have duel exhaust?

Vance & Hines made the duals on my Softail Springer Classic which is about identical except for the studs and fringe. Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size.

Thanks. Did you get a gain in performance. How's the sound? What else did you do besides having the pipes put on?

Samson makes a great looking kit but dont be looking for the performance from running true duals. A 2 into 1 pipe will give you the best low end TQ. But they do not look that great on an old school bike...

I am saving up for the D&D Fat Cat myself. I like the sound they have and after you ride one you will not care so much about the looks...

Interesting, thanks. So you are saying a true duel exhaust will actually lower my performance? Should I stick with good slip ons or should I go with a better exhaust than the stock exhaust?

There are many treads on the 2 into 1 pipes. Look for the Dr V-twin bike. Pm him about his findings on his change over to the 2 into 1. He also has had many exhaust systems on his bike. I think you will be very happy with the D&D Fat Cat. And they look the best out of all the 2 into 1 pipes..

True dual def works on the Heritage Classic, and looks sweet. V&H and Samson are prob the most popular manufacturers out there. You will not gain any performance from a true dual exhaust. For that you need a cross over system or a 2 in 1 system

you do not need to upgrade your air cleaner, but would be advantageous. However if you upgrade both exhaust and A/C you will need to re-tune your ECM either by download (your stealer can do that with the download costing around 200) or investing in a piggyback system like FP or PC.
