Default Exhaust Question on M8

hello all. I have a friend that has a 2018 Roadglide M8. He removed the stock exhaust and installed Vance & Hines Radius pipes and removed baffles. Bike started and drove for 1/4 mile and shut down. Cant get it to start back up.
We have spark,fuel and air

Any thoughts?

Thanks J

Maybe O2 sensors not installed properly?

Is the bike turning over? If so, and u have spark and fuel, timing would could be involved. Not sure how changing the exhaust could have anything to do with the timing. Just saying.

So your friend decided it was a good idea to void the warranty on a new motorcycle? Good luck!

Put the stock exhaust back on and call the dealer. No luck needed!
