Default Removing Stock Muffler...Does it harm?

In reviewing many post about exhaust and slip ons, I've removed my stock muffler to measure putting a screaming eagle slip on.

After hearing the sound without the muffler (which sounds great) does it harm the bike leaving the muffler completely off?

I'm between a screaming eagle or American classic slip on depending on fit. Just not liking the Cobra slip on as that seems to be the main choice for sound.



What slip-ons work with the stryker besides the cobra and does it hurt to lleave the muffler off?

The small diameter of the stock pipes will give some back pressure. It might increase your air flow enough to require a fuel programmer. Try it and find out. If it gets hotter than usual you need a fuel programmer - or a muffler.

Thanks. I havent been on the bike since removing the muffler. Just started the bike to hear the sound and wanted to ask before taking that step. Still looking for loud sound from a slip on and all I can seem to find are the Cobra slip ons.


Vance and Hines have a great reputation and sound. Are there any pipes just as loud that are slip ons you come across?

I don't care to increase power 3-5 HP and drop $6-800 on pipes when I just need the sound.

I was looking at the Screamin Eagle Pipes but not sure if they will fit.

Boolshot adapted a Harley slip on of some sorts. If you're willing to fiddle with it you can probably make it work.

Was remembering the same thing.
Anything not "made" for the Stryker won't be a simple bolt-on deal. Depending on how skilled/imaginative you are will make the project possible or not. And, of course, you don't want the end result to look like a hack job

That said, it all you are planning is an alternative slip-on the project should be fine.

for a bike to run properly it needs incoming pressure and out going pressure.
Science; blah, blah. You will burn your exhaust valves if you do not stop cold air from coming back up pipes.

I used a screaming eagle a friend took off of his road king or glide or something. Lol. Cut the clamp part off of my stock pipe and made a bracket. So it is a slip on now. There are pictures in my build thread.
