I am going to put my V&H big shot staggereds on my 2003 FLSTCI today, does any one have any tips, suggestions or advice before i start this? First real project on my new ride and dont want to screw anything up! Any help would much appreciated.
Just be sure to read and follow the directions. Fit every thing loosely then tighten the fasteners only after you align all components to your liking. Use windex to remove any fingerprints or handling marks before you start the bike so as not to cause any baked on blemishes.
I wax my pipes and have had no cosmetic problems from doing so. Some say not to! Simichrome polish works well to preserve the luster and remove scuffs and boot marks.
Have fun! It's an enjoyable experience to turn wrenches on our rides.
Hey Seanu, just installed some Cycle Shack slip-on's on my bike this morning. Although not that old (very little grime) and with only 1188 miles, some liquid wrench was helpful getting the old mufflers off. Good luck.
