Indian Chief LSR 2-1 Pro Stock Spyder

Indian Chief 00-1399 Dual Coat Black Ceramic with Black Shields


The Indian Chief is a "from the ground up" interpretation of the classical V-Twin, kept alive for over 100 years by Harley-Davidson, the sole survivor. In 111 or 116 cubic inch formats it's short on horsepower and long on clean sheet engineering. Indians are here to stay this time around after several aborted attempts to revive the marque.

With beautiful paint, logos, chrome accents and true "Indian Heritage" styling it's a more modern interpretation of the classical V-Twin...This time around with three camshafts in a 49 degree Vee and some pushrods as straight as an Indian's arrow.

The OEM exhaust has little in the way of performance tuning. We've got that covered with a pure merge collector LSR 2-1 design. Maximum benefit with Stage 1/2/3 and larger throttle body (60mm) modifications past 130 horsepower. The Indian 2-1 exhaust, like other big twins, is the way to make the best torque and power.

The stock exhaust weighs in at 41 pounds. Our LSR 2-1 Pro Stock Spyder weighs 17 pounds...a 24 pound weight savings. Free hp/weight gains. Go ahead, eat that second hamburger, and large order of fries. Your 790 pound couch now weighs 766 pounds. You weigh a bit more but it's a net gain.

Prices are on our Part Number Price Page. We build to order. Payment at time of shipment. Dual Coat Black Ceramic or Silver Ceramic with a choice of black or chrome heat shields.

Indian Chief 2-1 Exhaust


Without the saddlebags. Four heat shields. Uncompromised ground clearance. High velocity merge collector with a 2" exit into a sound-cancelling muffler. Proven LSR 2-1 Pro Stock Challenge Design with muffling. A pure race, uncompromised  design for street of touring. The Indian Chief 2-1 exhaust uses all of RB Racing's LSR 2-1 Black Hole and Pro Stock Spyder Technology.

We designed this system for real world performance and in testing easily bested published 40-60 and 60-80 mph roll-ons in dead stock configuration. Indian Dealer upgrades to 116" will be available for earlier models like the 2014 pictured above. It's all about torque.

We have over 40 years experience with Harley Davidson exhausts and tuning, pushing them to the mid to high 100 hp range in larger displacements and past 400 hp in Turbo Configurations. The Indian is somewhat similar except for the fact that the newer M8 Harleys have gone to 4 valve heads. Typical 117" Harleys are in the 130 hp range.

We offer real world tuning tools in our RSR Air Fuel Ratio Gauges whether you use Open Loop or Closed Loop tuning scenarios or if you make displacement increases and camshaft changes. Real world verification.


LSR 2-1 Pro Stock Spyder with Bags...No Ghost Pipe, No Slip Ons


Maximum power. Pure LSR 2-1 Pro Stock Design. No left side choked off or false muffler. Clean and purposeful  2-1 Exhaust design



Heavy wall tubing support for the left saddlebag. No compromise on ground clearance. Satin Black Finish. True 2-1 exhaust on the right side.


No heavy muffler, no ghost pipe. We simply go for maximum performance. The Indian Chief left saddlebag support bar is heavy wall steel and will securely lock your saddle bags into place in the exact same location as they were when they were sitting on top of the choked off left side exhaust.

The Indian Chief left saddlebag support bar is powder coated in Satin Black.

Customer writes: " Please find attached a picture of my bike with your Exhaust system as promised. I absolutely love the new Exhaust. I used to have the Freedom/Rinehart true dual exhaust and I liked it very much but the RB Racing LSR 2-1 is just so much better when it comes to the performance and the sound.

Thanks again for your service and support, I appreciate it very much.

p.s. I have the 116" Indian kit, Vic Baggers VP60 intake and the Dyno Jet PVCX with a custom map.
On the Dyno, it puts out around 112HP and 134 Torque. Iwan".

Note: If you are headed for the 2018 Sturgis Bike Week and want to reduce the heat while you ride, we keep several of the Black Ceramic systems in stock. 00-1399 and 00-1400.

Indian Chief 00-1400 Black with Chrome Shields

Double Coat Black Ceramic (Silver Ceramic Base Coat). Ceramic coated heat shield clamps. Black Hole technology in a Pro Stock Spyder System.

Dual Coat Black Ceramic Finish

The Dual Coat Black Ceramic is shown here after we media blast the top Black Ceramic Coat off with #100 Oxide leaving the base Silver Ceramic Coat exposed. Holding the blast gun at one spot for a longer period exposes the bare metal underneath.

The Dual Coating process is expensive and takes several days with three trips to the oven. Once to clean the exhaust, once to bake on the Silver Ceramic at 600 Deg F and a third time to bake on the Black Ceramic Finish at 600 Deg F. It's the only way a Black Ceramic Finish will hold up to chemicals and corrosion. We have years of experience with this process.

Prices are on our Part Number Price Page.

Serialization of Your RB Racing LSR 2-1 Order.

 

We use 2000 Degree F Ceramic coatings on our heat shield hose clamps for our Dual Coat Black LSR 2-1 exhaust systems. It makes the clamps "disappear" and they will not discolor.

We also heli-braze metal tabs inside our heat shields that are stamped for the part number and your order number. The three digit number is the part number...All LSR 2-1 exhausts are 00-1XXX, with the last three digits indicating the part number. The alphanumeric four digit number is your order number. The exhaust, as well as the the heat shields, also has all seven digits stamped into it. The "blank" tab is a spacer only and does not use a hose clamp.

We maintain a database on all exhausts sold so we know when the exhaust was sold, who ordered it, and any and all details concerning the order.


Indian Chief 00-1401 Silver Ceramic with Chrome Shields



00-1401: Here mounted on a 2014 model...Silver Ceramic Exhaust with four chrome heat shields.

Exhaust Stud Self Locking Nuts.

00-1010 Set (4 pcs $3.95) of Self Locking Exhaust Stud Nuts. Add when you order Indian exhaust systems. Stock parts are not self-locking.  Don't order later on to avoid minimum charge for small items plus postage which far exceeds the value of the items.

No Slip-Ons

No, we don't do slip-on mufflers. Every manufacturer rushes out to do slip-ons for the Indian Chief and then gives you a choice of machined billet end caps that do nothing for performance. We found out 30 years ago that end caps and baffles held on by screws fall out..The joke here in California was that they bounce twice and then go through a Mercedes windshield. We weld things.

There's another reason for this...Doing a true 2-1 exhaust for the Indian Chief is damn difficult. You have to get around the OEM design which features permanent die castings for the port flanges and the first part of the primary tubes that quickly morph into compound bends hidden under a close fitting, bolt-on, finned covers. Tight Tight Tight! We worked for several months perfecting the design and fixtures.

We don't do duals. We don't do slip-ons. We don't do bolt-on billet end caps.

In short we do not do phony.  We sure aren't going to ask you to hacksaw your head pipes to add on a 2-1 collector.

Stepped Headers..For Clowns

An interesting issue is the buzzword “Stepped Headers". This is a situation that is sort of like a runaway train with John Voight at the controls...It is hard to stop and question it once it gets rolling. What we really need to think about are the volumes and any changes inside the primary tubes. A stepped header made of of three, four, or five next size up tubes, welded together, is just a marketing game.

Simply welding together "next size up" tubes to produce "steps" leaves 90 degree ledges that disrupt flow and cause turbulence affecting the mass flow rate...not exactly what people claim.

True "steps" use a tapered step which must be experimentally derived as to the angle, location in the system, and size of the step. In general, the purpose is to get a secondary reflection at a specific rpm. At the highest level of motorsports where these are used..only one step is employed as with multiple steps the reflections tend to cancel out each other.

You need to understand..."Stepped Headers" as are currently marketed with multiple "steps" are basically bullshit, conjured up with no scientific verification, no testing whatsoever, and are just designed to get your hard-earned dollars.

A really long time ago we built an inlet manifold for a BMW Turbo R100 that had the turbo compressor discharge offset to the left of the centerline of the inlet tube that ran from the left to the right inlet ports. When the bike was run, the shorter (left) runner ran richer than the right or longer runner. Before we went to the dyno we cut off the left runner and bumped the tubing size up a couple of steps...and guess what, the spark plugs were perfectly equal on the dyno. We simply tried to equalize the volume and slow the speed in the shorter runner. It had nothing to do with steps...just the internal shape and volumes.

Logic will tell you that, if your motor wants a primary tune size of “x, say 1 3/4", to run the best, then it makes no sense, whatsoever, to step this tube up to 1 7/8”, and 2” by welding up some sections of three different size tubes. Think volumes, internal shapes and not fall for buzzword features like stepped primary tubes..

Our Indian exhausts have a higher flow rate at the port and at the collector than the OEM exhaust...and no "steps".


Bosch Torque Based ME17 ECU

Bosch makes the ecu on the Indian Motorcycles, the other Polaris products,  and millions of four cylinder automobiles. For the two cylinder the Indians they simply leave off two of the injector drivers. These use Bosch's predictive torque based code, not volumetric efficiency, or millisecond look up tables with modifiers. To get an idea of the complexity of this take a look at Bosch's ME7 PDF on Torque Based Strategy.

We know someone who was offered software programming data on the ME17 for $10,000.00 but he turned down the offer when the seller refused or could not prove he could do what he said he could do. The seller then sold the package to Dynojet.

We simply advise people to use our Dual RSR Air Fuel Ratio Gauges to observe while they ride and then make a decision on how they will make corrections. There is a tendency to turn these modern ECU's into electric carburetors bypassing the closed loop function. Our gauges work in either closed or open loop, reading the Delphi 12mm O2 sensors...All in the real world as you ride.

Getting 30 or so MPG on a modern big twin is patently stupid. Delphi based Harleys can get 50 mpg stock.

Dual RSR Air Fuel Ratio Gauge: Indian Chief (12mm) O2 Sensors

  

  
Pricelist

Dual RSR O2 Gauge: 06-1003 Compatible with Indian OEM Delphi 12mm Mini-Switching narrowband sensors. Real world tuning while you ride...Observe and then make adjustments. Mounted permanently. Waterproof. Eight 22759/32 20 gauge Mil-Spec wires.

RSR O2 Gauge Billet 1.250" Handlebar Clamp: 06-1025

RSR O2 Gauge Stainless Brackets: 06-1024; Comes with (2) brackets. 90 degree pictured above.

12mm Delphi Sensor Wiring Harness and Connectors: 06-1028 Required for either Open Loop Tuning (PCV, Dobek, Lloydz) or in OEM Closed Loop with factory reflashing. Items pictured to the right of the RSR Dual Gauge pictured above.

8mm x 1.25 Flanged and Serrated Exhaust Stud Nuts (new set of four). Will not loosen. 00-1411


 

 

We provide the hardware to splice and seal the Gray Signal Wire for output to our RSR Dual Air Fuel Ratio Gauge.  It is the only method to monitor both front and rear cylinders of your bike as you ride. Real world observations to perfect your tune in Closed Loop (above) or Open Loop (Seperate harness and plug). Better than a dyno which tends to overheat your motor quickly with differing loads in the real world and things like the air cleaner picking up elevated temperatures, and dyno exhaust emissions skewing your tune.

Pictured above: wired for Closed Loop (OEM) monitoring as you ride.



Our Dual O2 Gauges will work with or without DynoJet PCV units which effectively take both OEM Delphi O2 sensors out of the picture. An explanation of how the "O2 Optimizers" work is shown on this video. In the case of Closed Loop Tuning/Monitoring with ECM reflash we provide the splices.



PowerVision CX Units that allow you to monitor and reflash the Bosch ECM are available in narrowband and wideband variations. The wideband variation uses 18mm instead or the oem 12mm Delphi Sensors. We currently only supply the Indian exhausts with the 12mm Delphi bungs (see below).  If you use wideband sensors we also make a Wideband RSR Dual Air Fuel Ratio Gauge 06-1027. Reflashing the Bosch ECM with 12mm Delphi Sensors you use our RSR Dual Air Fuel Ratio Gauge 06-1003.

Wideband



People seem to want follow the siren call of “Wideband”…Well, we’ve been doing closed loop efi systems since 1989 manufacturing our own closed loop efi systems as well as working with high end Cosworth Pectel NTK Motorsport sensors, and in-house instrumentation with Bosch LSU 4.2/4.9 as well as the newer Bosch ADV (pre-turbo) sensors.

The Indian comes with the latest 12mm Delphi Mini-Switching narrowband O2 sensors as does every Harley-Davidson model for a very good reason…These sensors are very accurate, meet long term emission standards and are designed to specifically target a 14.7:1 AFR giving you the cleanest burn. A stock Harley is rated at 45 to 50 mpg.

ECM programming, be it VE or Predictive Torque based, allows for warm-up, acceleration enrichment, and full power fuel ratios through programming (reflash). In addition, these systems, both Delphi and Bosch, target Wide Open Throttle with sophisticated hidden programming that keeps track of variables and can change timing and fuel to prevent you from hurting the engine. Think wide open throttle in the middle of the desert for 10 miles. The Delphi system will automatically pull timing and and add fuel targeting richer ratios. These features are in the proprietary code.

We suggest you re-flash and stay with the 12mm O2 sensors and monitor as you ride in the real world with our RSR Dual AFR Gauges.

Bosch LSU sensors are very tall (rear sensor clearance issues) and, to prevent failure , they should be installed as Bosch specifies. They have to be on the top quadrant of the primary tubes in the “up” position so they will not fail due to contamination.

If you want to weld 18mm O2 ports on our exhaust in whatever position you choose, you are free to do so on your own.

If we weld then they are going on the outside of the exhaust, right where you can see them as Bosch specifies. We do suggest you stay with the 12mm though.

As we tell our Harley customers…You just spent 20-30-40 thousand dollars on your new Harley that rolled off the showroom floor getting 45-50 mpg. You drove down to buy it in your truck or car that has two or three narrowband sensors…Then you install a wideband controller and are now getting 30 something mpg. Progress.

Those 1800 Delphi or a similar number of Bosch Engineers think this is pretty funny. They have a low opinion of the aftermarket tuners. Maybe 10,000 calibration hours on their part and your dyno guy is going to do it in a few hours. Right



Mounts....Roll Your Own or Buy One

 

The gauges have a center back mount 5/16" x 18 x 1/2" Stainless Socket Head Cap Screw and stainless lock washer. You can fab your own bracket for this or use the 06-1025 hard anodized Billet Mount System for 1.25" Indian Chief handlebars $49.95. Optional is the 06-1024 two piece laser cut 304 Stainless Steel mounting tabs for either near handlebar clamp or up the handlebar mounting: $9.95.

The RSR Dual O2 Guage has a total of eight wires which are sheathed in Raychem DR-25. Above the Green Wire for the front O2 Sensor snakes forward and to the left side of the bike. There is no need to remove the gas tank to complete the installation...Only the seat removal. Real world not dyno world observation.
