Guys I know ram a steel rod in the muffler and put holes in the baffles. Problem is that then they either have to retune the bike or watch the exhaust pipe turn blue. Bikes are tuned with the exhaust. Change one...change the other. If you have the Harley shop install different pipes they will also retune it.(or should)

thanks,think i'll punch small holes in my baffles and try the sound from it first,that way i can save 500 bucks on pipes even if i need a tune up.think i'll need a tune-up even if i have electronic-fuel-injectors??
