I want to change my stock pipes on my 03 v-rod and install the same style Screamin Eagle pipes. Would I have to change anything else or re-program something? Can I just swap the pipes out without any problems?
If you put on the real SE Slip Fit pipes then you should also replace the air filter with the SE filter and get the proper ECM flash from the dealer. Without that the bike will run lean.
The pipes that came on the SE V-Rods are exactly the same as what you have. Screamin Eagle Slip Fits were NEVER fitted from the factory, they violate federal noise laws and therefore could not be installed from the factory.
The true SE pipe has "Screamin Eagle" embossed in the top pipe and "not for road use" on the underside of the bottom pipe.
