I have an 85 tour glide 1340 evo. I installed supertrapp slip ons with fish tails. I have an S&S carb and air cleaner on it. Can anyone tell me how many discs to run? Its a little to quiet however I don't want it to sound like drag pipes. I currently have 12 discs in each side.The bike ran extremly well with the stock pipes and I haven't rode it with the new pipes. I know it an old bike but i love it and it only has 10k origonal miles. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

12 is not very many, does the bike have stock head pipes? If so, run 3 more discs on the right side than on the left and try that, then increase by two on each side until you get the sound you want.
Be sure to use plenty of anti-seize on the threads.

Thanks for the reply. I do have the stock head pipes. After reading some of the other posts i decided to run 9 on the left and 15 on the right. It sounds good, runs great as far as power. In 3rd at 35mph I got on it hard and it was a noticeable improvement. Do u think I need to jet the S&S?

If it runs good, should be ok jetting wise.
Pull the plugs and take a look at them.
