View Full Version : best set up for 2008 VRSCDX

Hi Guys,

I need my night rod to sound like a real Harley and have been persuaded by my local HD dealer to fit Fatshots.

There are many threads that suggest 8-10 discs for optimum sound.

Some suggest no discs with open end caps.

I will be running new high flow air filter and new fuel managment.

From my understanding the more discs installed the louder the sound.

Can somebody tell me if there is a maximum amount of discs taht can be installed to each muffler and if the maximum are iinstalled will this effect the torque?

I am not convinced my HD dealer knows the best set up to achieve the best sound.

Can somebody advise me the best root ot take?

8-10 discs per muffler provided the best results for us on a stock bike.

An open end cap will give you comparable flow, but will add a few db's.

You should start with your dealer's recommendation of 8-10 discs per muffler, go ride and adjust to your liking from there.

Hope that helps!

Thanks Ginap,

I assume that it takes no time for them to fit more discs and re-setup etc?

You're welcome and no, it shouldn't take much time at all.
