Lighting Racing Mufflers

Company: DonSPEED

Contact: 916/853-9738; www.DonSPEEDracing.com

Integrated into the design of each muffler is an exclusive Power-Venturi. This baffle component or “Torque Cone” can be adjusted to optimize the exhaust system’s flow characteristics for maximum horsepower and torque with any level of engine modification. When these mufflers are installed in conjunction with a free flowing air cleaner, substantial performance increases can be realized from a stock bike. In most cases no download or additional fuel management module is required as the proper balance of backpressure and flow can be achieved by adjusting the Torque Cone. The Lightening baffle can be removed and packed with an optional deadening kit. Lightening Racing Mufflers are direct slip-on replacements for 1995-2009 Harley-Davidson touring models with stock head pipes, and true-dual pipes designed as replacements for stock units.

MSRP: $549.95

It also operates the rear turn signals as brake lights and running lights with one wire hook-up. The new Z1 Standard Mid Frame System offers the same features as their Z1 Mini Mid Frame System, but comes with a longer billet cover for mounting both the Z1 power module and the lighting control/auto-cancel module in one compact location.
