  • Hello from Erie, Pa

    Itching for the snow to melt but it keeps falling up here. Glad I found this forum and looking forward to some advice for my 2008 R*.... is there a forum for the best pipes with o2 bungs?

      from 2 hours Southwest of you in Northeast Ohio. All pipes will either have the O2 bungs in them already or a muffler shop can add them for very little coin. Best performing is a 2 into 1 system. Good luck!

        Thanks, Joe! I'm loving the paint scheme on your bike. I really liked the white when I bought mine but after only a few miles I can write my name in the dust on my rear fender. I'll also be going to red and black soon.

          Thanks. That's one of the stock paint schemes for the 07 bikes. The PO added the bags, windshield and Cobra Slashcuts (they were awful!). I've made the rest of the changes. I get comments every week on how good it looks. You should see the confusion on their faces when I tell them that it's not HD!! Priceless!!

          I believe it! My father rides an 02 soft tail heritage classic and side by side... The similarities are ridiculous. I already get comments on mine from people unfamiliar with the star badging on the tank, which I'll be removing so it doesn't cut into my knees anymore. So far I've only added a switchblade quick release windshield and a set of engine guards which were so overpriced I actually thought I was buying highway bars. Obviously I'm still learning how to internet purchase mods for a cruiser after riding sport bikes forever. Man have I been missing out!

        Hey Captain... Thanks for the welcome. I had bought a set of pipes off eBay.....the brand was Road Khrome or something of the sort. They didn't have the bungs and I never thought of having some welded in. I guess I assumed it would screw up the chrome. I just bought a big air kit and with an added aftermarket exhaust will I need an efi tuner as well?

          The bung should get welded into the pipe itself on the backside so it shouldn't effect the chrome heat shield. As far as the tuner, save your money. The stock computer is capable of handling exhaust and intake mods just fine.

          Well that makes perfect sense now that you say that. Now I feel slightly retarded for sending them back. So the computer and O2 sensors will be able to adjust to anything I add.....oh and I also removed the ais system. The only problem I'm having now is when at cruising speeds at around 70mph.....i get a really bad lag for a moment and then a huge surge in power. Any ideas?

          Thanks Doc! Gorgeous bike... Is your fairing black? I was wondering how mine would look on a white bike with an all black batwing

          Thanks, yah it's black. I had one painted to match the bike but I thought it was too much red. I prefer the contrast.

          I kind of had the same mindset. I just hadn't seen one around to make an opinion but yours looks pretty wild. I think I'm sold on the black. Thanks for the input Doc... And again.... Beautiful set of wheels.
