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. Compatible with passenger floorboards. High velocity merge collector with a 2" exit into a sound-cancelling muffler. Proven LSR 2-1 Pro Stock Challenge Design with Black Hole muffler core. 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" are 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.

The Indian Chief left saddlebag support bar is powder coated in Satin Black.
TIG Welded out of 1/4" steel, these left side support bars are assembled in a precision fixture and are then off to final sand blasting and powder coaring.

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: 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
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
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.

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
We also heli-braze metal
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.

the value of the items.
No, we don't do slip-on
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.
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
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.
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
Dual RSR Air Fuel Ratio Gauge: Indian
Chief (12mm) O2 Sensors
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.
Here is a cold start event on 2014 Indian Chief showing how quickly the bike goes into closed loop from fully rich. Dual RSR Gauge.
