    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

    Careful with the black endcaps. I ordered 2 for my fatshots and after awhile, the black started to come off of them, so I had to take them off.

    You most likely will not gain performance with your present set up; however may benefit with additional mods.
