Thread: 3" Internal Discs vs 4" Fat Shots for FLH

    Smile 3" Internal Discs vs 4" Fat Shots for FLH

    Hi. I´m new to this forum.

    1) What are the differences in terms of torque/hp and sound level adjustability of the Fat Shots compared with the 3" 2+2 Internal Disc mufflers?

    2. Can you get the fat Shots with a BLACK closed end cap?

    3. Since there is no end cap covering the discs, I wonder if there is a potential sooting problem?

    4. Since discs and screws are exposed to rain and dirt, is there any corrosion problem?

    Thanks for your answers

    On a stock machine torque/hp gains will differ little; however the Fat shots have more potential for gains as modifications are introduced. In most cases the 3" units will be slightly quieter on the same machine due to the size of the discs and the cosmetic end cap.

    2. Can you get the fat Shots with a BLACK closed end cap?
    Yes, as an additonal optional accessory.

    3. Since there is no end cap covering the discs, I wonder if there is a potential sooting problem?
    There is an end cap on both units; however exhaust sooting is usually an indication of rich running condition or a potential internal engine problem.

    4. Since discs and screws are exposed to rain and dirt, is there any corrosion problem?
    All disc assembly components are made of stainless steel.

    Thanks for your answers

    Thanks for your replies.

    What are the main differences between the HD SE Fat Shots and the ST version?

    The Disc Assembly (screws/number of discs/end caps).

    Screws, security (HD) vs. allen head (SuperTrapp)

    10 discs per muffler assembled on HD "FATSHOTZ" vs. 24 disc included w/SuperTrapp "FatShots".

    Open end cap HD FATSHOTZ vs. Closed end cap w/SuperTrapp FatShots

    Black coated aluminum trim ring HD FATSHOTZ vs. Polished aluminum trim ring w/SuperTrapp FatShots

    and of course the the logo's, SceaminEagle vs. SuperTrapp, on the muffler body

    I understand the fatshotz will not work on older touring bikes since the right and left mufflers flow differently. Can anyone confirm that. I would like to put these on my 2004 CVO 103" Electra Glide.

    Thanks

    The Screaming Eagle FatShotz and the SuperTrapp Fatshots will fit earlier models. There are NO differences in the core/baffle assemblies between the left and right sides. The Screaming Eagle FatShotz will provide MORE sound on an earlier bike due to the "open" end-cap vs the "closed" end-cap supplied with the SuperTrapp FatShots.

    Thanks for the quick info, if I try these it will be my 7th set of mufflers on this 103" with Vance and Hines Dresser Dual head pipes.

    V+H ovals ( Too Loud )
    V+H Monster Ovals ( Great sound but too ugly )
    SE 65115-98b's ( Sounds like making popcorn on the bike)
    Kuryakyn Crushers ( Nice Idle and Cruise but tinny sounding on easy throttle),
    Klock Werks WFB's ( Too loud and weird decel sound )
    Rinehart slip ons ( Way too loud )

    If sound is an issue, the SuperTrapp units may be a better choice. If you find them too quiet you could always swap to the "open" end cap.
