Firstly I would like to say hello to all. I am new here and to Harley's
I just got myself a Vrscdx from 08 and am loving it!
I have to do a sound test with the bike to import it and as it is fitted with a thunderheader exhaust I dont think it has a chance in hell of passing!
My question is: can i fit the stock system (which i do have) and run it to the test then refit the thunderheader without messing with the power commander settings?

I would be running the bike for 1 hour tops, but dont want to damage it in any way.

FYI the power commander III is from Dyno jet, and it is also fitted with a k and n filter but i do have the stock filter also.

Any help for a newbie would be much appreciated.

replace the pipes and pull the Power commander off. You will be fine with that arrangement.

The power commander does not modify anything permanently. It just intercepts the ECM output and alters it to suit your needs.

The H-D manual is the best. Order through your dealer. Paper is the only legal version but you might check Here

everyone that has ever "downloaded" an electronic copy ended up complaining that it was a piss poor scanned copy of the actual manual and very hard to read

Not from the site I gave a link to. Very good quality. As good as the original paper manual. Here is a couple of pages from a parts manual I scanned and posted on this forum.
They print beautifully on 8.5x11" paper also

Leave the power commander, swap the exhaust for the test then swap back to the thunderheaders. If you feel like it, check your plugs afterwards for color.
