I am putting a stage I on my '03 standard. Any advise on pipes. Should I stick with the screamin eagle II slip-fits, or go after market?

My buddies and I went with the STAGE I kits and
drilled the baffles out of the stock slip ons.

Sound great, with a total gain of 8hp.

Unless you want to change the look of your bike this is the way to go for the money. IMHO

I've got a 2003 FXSTI with stage 1 including SEII Slip Ons and like them a lot. They have the Harley sound that I wanted but are not too loud. I also like the shorty dual slash down look.

We have injected bikes, and we did have to use the Stage1 remap because we also went with the SE breather kit. To me the exhaust sounds good considering it's a cheap mod.(12 bucks for the hole saw to drill out baffles)

2-1 if you want more power. I put on the SEII slip ons and am going to switch to a 2-1 for more power. You lose 5-10% power with drag pipes.

I have an 02 Standard and I'm running a Ness Stage1 Big Sucker and Python3 Slip-ons. The Pythons have a deep rumble simular to V&H, I've been told that V&H are louder but I've never heard V&H, but the Pythons are loud enough for me. I'm very happy with the setup and saved some $$ compared to the S.E. stuff. Bought it all on Ebay for $320.00, brand new sealed in factory boxes.

I have a carbeurated 03 Standard with SEII slash downs and the SE stage 1 kit. Looks great, sounds better and the neighbors don't mind at all. In fact, everyone came outside for the first two weeks when I started it up...
