« Last post by hbkeith on Today at 02:48:03 AM »
depends a lot on what your trying to do , you want OEM replacement ? check with Elvis, you just need mufflers ? need the head pipe ? etc . as far as what BOLTs to the EVO engine , I run a Pro Pipe on my EVO I took off a 06 StreetGlide , bolts right up to the engine , think Paucho makes staggerd dauls for FXR , plenty of 2into1 available

I'm an '85 FXR rider. Still riding the one I bought new in 1985. That said, I'm curious how his exhaust reached the "end of it's life" at 30,000 mi. ??
As you already know...There aren't many options available. I don't know any later year pipes that will just bolt on. I've read some suggestions about putting mid-90's softtail pipes on an FXR by having custom brackets fabricated, but can't comment on whether that's a  real option as I've never tried it. I hope someone with hands-on experience will read your question and post so that we'll all learn. Depending upon what's wrong with the original exhaust system on the bike...he might want to consider repair and re-plating rather than pulling and replacing.

Stock H-D Dyna shocks are a dead ringer for Shovelhead shocks. They bolt right on and come in many lengths so choose wisely, only the MoCo could manage that!  I run a set of 12.5 Dynas on my FXE and am happy with them.

EVO 1340 / exhaust compatibility for an 85 FXR
« Last post by Flhfxd on Yesterday at 07:53:16 PM »
My brother needs a new exhaust system for his 85 FXRT as the the stock system is at the end of its life. This bike has about 30000 miles and is bone stock. Obviously there are little to no options to replace the exhaust for a bike this age.
So the question is, what later year bikes will fit this particular year EVO engine....?
Thank you.

I'm still waiting to hear if anyone has used Ride-On in their tires which has the TPMS.

"The fires we typically read about are with lithium-ion batteries, the types of batteries that power small electronics, like smartphones and laptop computers. In motorcycle applications, the batteries are constructed from a lithium-iron-phosphate blend that gives up a little in its power density for significantly more chemical stability than traditional lithium-ion batteries." 

Why  I always make the distinction in these lithium threads.

And yet they keep reoccurring. Same discussion over and over.
