    Default Screamin Eagle Nightsticks

    I have a chance to get a new set of Screamin Eagle Nightsticks for a very good price. I want to put them on my 2000 Electra Glide (carb) which of course does not have a cat but it does have the stock head pipe. How will these perform and sound since they appear to be designed for a bike with a cat? How many discs would I want to use? Which end cap, open or closed? I don't want a lot of noise. I see the core is completely smooth with no holes, how does this reduce the sound?

    Thanks for your help.

    On your bike they will be pretty loud and metallic. Not good. As you know they have a solid core with not packing. You could buy the 'Performance Core' kits for them but that would probably negate the 'deal' you found as the cores are 140+ each.

    Better to just purchase the correct mufflers for your bike-our website has 20% off if you sign up for our newsletter and get the coupon code?!

    Thanks,

    Which Supertrapps do you recommend? I prefer just a little louder and deeper than stock. Fatshots?

    Our FatShots are great, deep low tone, adjustable.

    Kerker Stouts are a good option as well, little louder non adjustable
    SuperTrapp Stouts are on the quiet side.

    How does the sound of the Fatshots compare to the older SuperTrapp SE? I have a set on my bike now but I think the packing is shot because they are quite loud. The cans and ends are in excellent condition but the price of the replacement baffles is ridiculous. The bike really runs great with them though.

    Hey, sorry for the late response-been on the road at Sturgis Rally the last few weeks.

    FatShots are a lower/deeper tone than the SE. The larger diameter muffler with more internal volume is the difference.
