I was just wondering could I, without causing any damage, remove the silencers and just run with my header pipes on my 2006 Bonnie? I love the sound but have been told that I could burn a piston this way due to lack of backpressure and the engine running to lean. Is this true? If so are there any adjustments I can make to the carbs without rejetting?

Thanks for any and all help.

Rancam,

You can get aftermarket baffles that weld and/or screw into the strait pipes. Custom Bobber guys used to do this all the time before there were so many choices in exhaust systems.
Check into it, it looks good and is really really load...

Why would you want to do that?
Get a Harley!

I can tell you that it is a real bummer to have hardly any hearing left when you hit middle age because of stupid youthful things like hacking the mufflers off.
