    Hello guys,

    Wondering if any of you's have S&S Slipons installed on a Fatboy.
    Would definitely like to get some feedback/reviews.

    Thanks!

    I know the age of the bike is different. Had a pair of simple slash cut slip ons on my 03 Deuce. 
    Looked fantastic. Sounded great. 
    Too noisy though. I was attracting attention at work and riding around the city. Constant loud droning at high speed on open road requiring ear plugs for trips. 
    I did notice that when I swapped them out for stock standard mufflers the power appeared reduced but my riding enjoyment increased.

    Had non-slash style on my 06 Fatboy. 
    Excellent pipes, tried two other types of manufacturers pipes, but for me they were just right.

    I have the S&S tapered slip ons but my bikes an 08 Fatboy
    They are a great muffler.  They have a nice deep sound to them and when cruising along are relatively quiet but once you twist they do talk

    Now I remember this from my High school maths. As far as Steelo is concerned ...
    There is an inverse relationship between his bike's reduced power and his increased riding enjoyment  ;-)

    It probably couldn't pull the skin off a rice custard but it looks good doesn't it!

    I remember riding well back in a pack (is it a pack when you can't see them ahead of you?)
    I had been enjoying myself at a reduced pace (riding that is) when thought I'd better catch up and was only a hair over the limit when I got stopped by a traffic cop coming towards me. He admitted that, yes, all the others were going way faster than I but I was easy to lock onto being by myself.
    He gave me a caution. I try not to get separated now.

    Edit. The highlight of my childhood maths class was typing 5318008 into my LED calculator and turning it upside down!

    It is a nice bike the stretched tank is a real feature.
    58008 it was in my day
    ps
    on the topic of power I've been looking at a Boss Hoss- heavy, ridiculously overpowered but somehow tempting.

    Saw a truckload of them in America but only one in Aust. There was a company on the Goldy that did a Aust version called a Barbarian using a modified fat boy with a 350.

    S&S slip-ons are good mufflers. Not as loud as some,  pretty resistant to rusting out, way better flow than stock, you will need to tune to suit. I've had a set on my 90 Sportster since 1999. The are a bigger diameter than many after market ones, and look more like a stock one, which may give a first impression at least of being standard. This can be useful at times.
