Default exhaust change on road king

I have a 04 road king with s&s carb and screaming eagle pipes, never liked the sound of these pipes, they are 1 step above original, I wanted something that is deeper and throater, even at idle, low rpm and under load. trying to decide between vance and hinds and Rinehart. These are slip on mufflers with stock pipes, so the change will be slip on mufflers only, and staying with stock pipe configuration, not duals. any opinions. would I have to rejet

My buddy has rinehart slip ons on his 88" and it sounds great! I wouldn't think you'd need to 're jet but that's just my opinion!

Take a look at V&H Monster Ovals. A bit louder than stock but not enough to annoy the neighbours, and much more low-down rumble. I have them and love the sound.

It's good to be the King.

Tough question and the subject of many a threads. The responses your going to get will add to your confusion. Best thing to do is listen to all the diff exhausts whenever theres a bunch of bikes and take note of the one that gives you wood..

I put MGS slip-on's on my RKC. They sound great; throaty but not too loud. Finish is great, and the black tips are awesome looking and easy to clean. I ordered a set of "blem's" and saved some money, and only one pipe had a very small blem which is invisible the way I installed that pipe. Good company to work with; American owned & products made here too.

Give them a look.
