I used Wood TW-6g's with mild headwork. SE breather and White Bros. E-pipes. The heads were shaved for a 9.8:1 compression and had a 5 angle valve job with minor exhaust and valve clean-up. The work was done at Baltimore HD. The bike runs like a top with very little cam noise and absolutely no pinging. I just had her tuned at Frederick HD in Maryland and was delighted with the results. Honestly the numbers were not my main concern. I was going for a great rideable scoot with excellent low end torque for my '05 Road Glide. I couldn't be happier! What do ya think?

I think you hit the mark with those numbers! It must be a blast to twist the throttle on that puppy now!

How do you like the exhaust you went with?

I am considering moving to a 2-1 exhaust, but am concerned that it will be too much sound for long rides.

I was running V&H Dresser Duals with Python slip-ons and found the E-series on eBay complete with heatshield and end cap...NEW...for $125 and couldn't resist. I'm sure the #'s and shape of the curve are much improved with this exhaust. I like the sound but on a long ride it might get to be a bit much. Should wear ear plugs anyway, right?

Yep, I wear ear plugs on the really long rides as the wind noise gets to be too much, even with my full face helmet on.

Thanks for the feedback, I suspected they might be on the loud side.

WOW! Them some nice numbers! Those Woods cams really get to the power don't they...
I notice only 5 dyno pulls, did they use the tuning link on it? looks like your base map was pretty darn close!

Yes, they used the tuning link. They also ran a # of partial runs to improve rideability. This build is an absolute thrill to ride and required some major adjustment in the use of my right hand. I have about 1000 miles on her since the build and can't imagine needing more.

Yes, Rob and Danny worked together to get it right. They even brought me into the cell on a couple of occasions. Rob is a neat guy, I had talked with him before so he dropped what he was doing to help Danny get it right. Danny was also pretty knowledgeable about the process.
