Customer Writes: " Hey
guys just checking in to say a huge thank you from us over here
As you would be aware we campaign a bike at DLRA speed week
With the help of Jason (legend )and You guys being generous and to give us an exhaust we used on the bike this year 2023.
Last year was washed out so we had to wait until this year to see the results of our hard work.
After fitting your exhaust and making some changes to carby and intake the bike gained 9 hp and almost 10 ftlb of torque
This year at speed week that resulted in a best run of 169.717 mph with a backup run of 167.8 giving us an average of 168 .8 mph. A provisional Australian record in its class
This would not have been achieved without your generosity and help.
My self (Pete) and Craig the owner and rider of the orange tiger bike would like to express our appreciation for your help.
We a so glad we can share these results with you.
The bike will be back here in Mackay end of May so I can look for some more performance to propel the bike even faster next year hopefully to the mid 170’s mph to maybe ?? grab a world record standing for the bike in its 2 litre push rod class
I have included a link to the you tube video of its run and a small video of some highlights of the event provided by cowboy hat films.
Also, some photos of the orange 2 litre 2003 anniversary wide glide we used to get these results.
As well some photos of the blue grey bike Ridden by Mark that campaigned with us in the 3-litre class that run a PB of 176mph , as you will see it uses one of your exhausts as well.
Once again thank you so much for assistance we are forever thankful.
Regards Pete and Craig with the tiger bike"

Born Every Minute As
They Say: LSR 00-1306R Versus
$2600.00 Stainless 2-1
You can spend upwards of $2600.00 for
a, new to the market, stainless megaphone 2-1 exhaust with only
two abbreviated heat shields and no long term history in terms of
pipe mounts or over the road long term durability. No broken pipes
For about the same money you can get a
competition and dyno proven LSR 2-1 00-1306R
Pro Stock in dual coat black ceramic with full coverage heat
shields, a TTS MasterTune, a TTS Camshaft and a RSR Dual Display
AFR Gauge for, as-you-ride monitoring, to perfect your tune. Full
2" primaries, billet gaskets, and CNC machined turbo venturies.
We tried megaphones 30 years ago. They
are a waste of time. It's old tech circa Norton Manx's and pukka
1950's English bikes. There are no megaphones on any race
cars...formula, GP, World Rallye, NASCAR...Nowhere. 45 years
of this shit. We've seen it all.
Born every minute as they say.On the other hand maybe we should raise prices to $2,600.00 since every minute there is a new one born....and sell you the other three items.

S&S V111 Cone
The S&S machined cone does not
taper immediately from the engine case as does the OEM item. We
have had to make changes in our "B" style exhausts to clear this
non-stock cone. It's always something.
Exhaust is the Last Item
The last item in your build is the
exhaust...and guess what... There can be conflicts and it is now,
you determine, the exhaust's fault, not the other parts
fault. The aftermarket ignition and wires on the left above are
definitely not OEM. Customer blamed the exhaust, not his
aftermarket ignition wires. He said "Just move it down". It
doesn't work that way. We said it takes another design due to the
In this case we made a new exhaust in
another FX Shovel fixture with a front pipe way further down
(below) that would clear the ignition wires.
Of course as soon as we made the second
pipe for the customer he cacelled the order...saying something
about offending him. Go figure.

Finally got a photo of the bike with the exhaust on. To say I'm happy with how it sounds and looks would be a huge understatement!! I absolutely love how deep it sounds and that noise when I open it up is just so damn good!! It even impressed the guys at my local Harley Davidson dealership so that is saying something.
Thank you for an amazing product! Jamie."

When you order the TTS MasterTune, a
LSR 2-1, and our RSR Air Fuel Ratio gauge, and a TTS
Camshaft (see below) there is a $100.00 discount. Real world.
Camshaft left above. Mercedes / Illmore pushrod V8 Indy winning
265E camshaft to the right. Pay attention to the lobe design.
Ilmore found that with a pushrod design there was so much monkey motion going on between the camshaft lobe and the actual valve opening that it made more power and torque to gently (preload if you will) open and close the valve. Slamming the valve open introduced disastrous harmonics and accelerated valvetrain wear.
Steve Cole designed his TTS 100/150/175/200 camshafts plotting the acceleration rates contrary to what others did i.e. banging the valve open and shut. Years later Steve finds others are copying his designs even if they do not know why he designed them that way. Camshaft descriptions.
If you actually ride instead of parking and talking about your dyno session you will find the TTS cams will outperform all others in the vital roll-ons in the 1000 to 4000 RPM range.
TTS M8 cams are priced at $275.00. $358.00 for Twin Cams. In stock at RB Racing to pair up with our LSR exhausts and our RSR Air Fuel Ratio meters.

Customer writes: "Hello.I hope all is well in your part of the world, first up thank you for sorting out bits n bobs to fit the second hand Pro Stock Pipe I purchased of a 2007 softail which arrived well packed and fast.
The pipe fit like a glove, provides access to my clutch cable and shows off my Carlini torque arm nicely. I only got it on the bike an hour ago and took it for a quick blast..... when I got off the bike I was dumbfounded, I knew there would be gains but I wasn’t ready for this! Throttle response improved, hp gained as an estimate 10/15 hp with an exhaust note that’s all business with no back cackling bullshit! All this with no tuning to suit the pipe! The best exhaust system on the planet, not trying to blow wind up your arse just calling it for what it is! This system is the first bolt on horse power everyone should purchase, the V&H big shots I removed were 6 pounds heavier! It’s like winning the horsepower lottery finding your system!
Now I have the exhaust
sorted (with 18mm sensor ports bunged off) I would like to fit
your AFR meter for obvious reasons, you recommend the single
display for carby models. Down the track I will invest in your
closed loop fuel injection system for my EVO, so the question
is... could you please advise the correct set up for my 1999
FXSTC with this in mind, perhaps the dual display for future
improvement? I have dual CHT gauges and my bike runs front 280
and rear 270 which is at odds with the norm, btw screamin eagle
1550 kit was fitted prior to buying the bike...at least that’s
the info given and I haven’t put it on a dyno to suss it further
as I hate to burn money.
In closing, thank you for an awesome exhaust system which I had no idea would be this good and I can’t get the grin off my face, and thank you in advance for any advice you can give on the AFR meter.
All the best and kind regards, Peter (the bloke in Melbourne Australia with the huge grin on his face compliments of RB Racing LSR Pro Stock Pipe)."

LSR 2-1: Dual O2 Sensor Ports 12mm and 18mm
All Milwaukee 8 RB Racing LSR 2-1 exhausts have both 12mm and 18mm O2 ports. We recommend you stay with the 12mm O2 control and use TTS MasterTune. Some Dyno shops will retain the 12mm O2 sensors but want a wideband port to assist in tuning. Some people drink the purple Kool-Aid and run only wideband sensors. Whatever you want to do.
For 12mm O2 applications we recommend
using TTS MasterTune and buying our RSR Dual Air Fuel Ratio Gauge
(Two 18mm Sensors) to monitor your bike as you ride where you can
observe transitions , cruising, and wide open throttle air fuel
ratios visually. Instant information in the real world. Better
than the dyno as you ride in the real world not overheating the
engine on the dyno.
Customer writes: "Sounds
like a FAST Harley! Revs quicker. Everyone that
knows the bike immediately notices how the engine has better
throttle response now. One blip of the throttle is all it
takes to spark envy. It has a noticeable volume and
powerful sound on acceleration complimented by a smooth
deceleration growl. Cruising volume is somehow arguably
quieter than the V&H slip-ons that were on the bike
previously. The chrome is flawless. Packaging was
excellent. It’s amazing how spot-on the fitment of the
slip joints are.
The mounting bracket is perfect in form, fit and function. Everything eases into place with a slow methodical hand. Don’t force or rush the installation and you will complete it without frustration. I bought the Dual AFR meter at the same time as the pipe. I cannot imagine an easier way to tune with my TTS MasterTune! I was able to actually improve the tune and power while maintaining 43 mpg. Thanks! Ryan"

The issue with stainless
is that it will turn gold, then brown, then black-ish...Plus you
cannot chrome it. Then there is the issue of the heat shields if
also done in stainless.

Springer. It had a D and D exhaust on it that I didn't
like. I called RB Racing and you said the Pro Stock
would fit the engine, but may have to modify the
bracket. It went on easy and I was able to mount it
using the Ultra Classic bracket that it originally had.
No drilling or cutting. Only had to use one mounting
bolt on back of exhaust to bracket.
The Pro Stock looks great and sounds better on the Springer. Thank you for all you help. 2002 Springer, 95ci, Mikuni carburetor, Andrews 26a cam. 18 inch LA Chopper Apes. Rick".

B Style 00-1306
Forward Controls Late Dyna 124" Video
LSR 2-1 Pro Stock Challenge exhausts use the same part number, 00-1306, no matter whether they are for Shovelheads, EVO's, Twin Cams , or M-8's.
rear pipe configuration depends on the specific model and
year. For example, all Dresser 00-1306 designs are "C" meaning
the rear pipe turns before the "cone".
Late model Mid-Peg Dynas (2006 and later) use the "C" style. 2006 and later Dynas with forward controls, pictured above, can use either the "B" or "C" style designs.
All Sportsters are "B" Style i.e. the rear pipe wraps around the cone. FXR's can be "B" or "C" style.

Put the pipe on and proceeded to destroy a set of lifters. "I do place the blame for this squarely on your product." It was a night and day difference.
so quickly it was incredibly hard to catch it, before it
banged the Rev limiter. It really took me a minute to
comprehend what was going on. I had burped the limiter before,
but in the situation described it actually shut off
momentarily. Your pipe has actually changed the math I use.

Pure Race Systems! No

Sophisticated 15 Degree Merge Collector Maximizes Power
We handmake our 1 3/4" and 2.0" Merge Collectors to maximize the
potential of our LSR 2-1 Pro Stock Exhaust Systems. You must have a
shallow angle merge to maintain a high velicity (lower pressure)
with less disturbance flowing into the constant diameter tail
section. When do you go to 2.0"? Well, the general rule is, when the
motor goes over 100 cubic inches and it has cams and other work you
go to 2.0".
2017 to Present: People kept asking
about RB Racing releasing LSR 2-1 exhaust systems for the new
Harley Motor. Well, we are fixtured for all of them with a new muffler design that takes
into account the increased compression and displacement.
Testing has shown cam changes need to
be made along with a 2-1 exhaust to make any appreciable gains. Go
ahead buy your $500.00 air cleaners and your $700.00 Monster
Slip-Ons...keep the economy going.
Real World Tuning Package
When you order a complete LSR 2-1
exhaust with the RSR Air Fuel Ratio
Gauge and The TTS MasterTune there is a $75.00 discount on
the total price. You can observe while you ride in the real
world to evaluate transitionals and wide open throttle . In
actual dyno tuning you really have to hold one "site" i.e. the
intersect of load and rpm to get an accurate feedback. That's
why you see Superflow engine dynos doing step testing.

does get complicated with LSR 2-1 Racing Pro Stocks (pictured

A pipe you don't really need for an old stock Shovel, yes. I went with the Pro Stock. This was the easiest pipe I have every installed and the sound is unbelievable.
Everyone at the bike shop that hears it ask," What is it?" It does the shovel justice. All that is left is to add the Jim's 3/4" kick start shaft for clearance.

143 Cubic Inches for
your Dresser. Another way to spend $10,000.00 to $15,000.00 to
climb the Horsepower mountain. We are making exhausts for these
with integral B3 flanges. The exhaust port dimensions are not
oem, not S&S SA B1 nor S&S SA B2. Go figure.
We have made custom parts for these T143 B3 ports.
Available for the five product ranges we manufacture...Quiet (LSR
2-1 Black Hole) to Full Race (LSR 2-1 Pro Stock). The new two
bolt/stud LSR 2-1 B3 Flange is integral, free rotating to the
exhaust port. Full 2" I.D. No billet aluminum Butt Plugs or
packing you have to replace.
A few people ask us for
baffles in Pro Stock Pipes and we tell them "no"...They say they
want more backpressure. Well, you never make power with higher
backpressure. The real issue is that the atmospheric pressure is
15 psi and it rushes back up the pipe between firing
events...that is the pressure you worry about. Pipe length,
diameter, cams, fuel and ignition all figure into the events
your engine sees when the exhaust valve opens..reversion and
scavenging are all affected by these. All of our exhaust systems
have welded-in baffles
save the LSR 2-1 Pro Stock which have no baffles. We weld
them in all our other LSR 2-1 systems so they never can fly
out...and through people's windshields. You ffing don't put
baffles inside the 2.5" Tail section.
If you specify the Pro
Stock pipe to have a baffle at the time of order we will machine
the heavier wall end pieces and package up a baffle with a new
tag and mounting hardware should you decide to try it at some
future date. We do not install them. We do not approve of them.
The 2.250" louvered core
flows about like a 1.875" cross section as opposed to the
no-baffle 2.375" I.D. of the un-baffled Pro Stock tail section.
The 1.875" flow rate will speed up the gas exit speeds a
bit...it is not there to "increase backpressure"...it is there
to lower the tone a bit and increase the exit speeds which can
lower "jetting" figures on carburetted smaller motors. All LSR
2-1 Pro Stock Designs were meant to be run without a baffle.
If you want a baffle for
your LSR 2-1 Pro Stock to install at a later date there is a
The baffle will not get

The risk is yours
insofar as drilling your exhaust and bolting it in. When
ordering you must specify if you have a 00-1306 Challenge (short
tail section) or a longer length Pro Stock tail section. We are
not going to drill our exhausts as we only approve welding in
baffles in the rest of our products. Baffles can come out..two
bounces and then through a windshield.
The word "Baffle"
implies a muffler or sound reduction device. For sound reduction
to occur there had to be a larger internal volume and or sound
absorption media to dampen the pulsations and convert these into
heat and energy loss. These are not very effective sound
reducing devices so do not expect them to be quiet.

lighter than the old D&D Fat Cat. Yes, weight is
still a factor among older, serious bikers. Fabrication,
welding and chrome are excellent. Began installation at
Perley's Cycle Shop in High Point, NC. Perley is a
long-time friend and riding partner, member of Thomas family
of Thomas Built Buses. He and I are the types who will
think for an hour before attempting a twenty minute job.
We envy those people who installed these pipes in twenty
minutes. LOL! Used sanding drum in female pipe to
keep pipe from binding in collector resulting from excellent
RB's suggestion to use
the black sealant is important as this lubricates the initial
fitment. Noticed increased ground clearance over
D&D, I won't be riding on the collector anymore while
leaning right! Also, easier access to transmission
filler. Fired it up! Oh, yeah! My Harley
sound is back. Anyone hearing it will not have to guess
what it is.
Took a short ride
before rain. Surprise! This pipe makes less noise
while cruising than the baffled Fat Cat. I always hated
the Fat Cat sound at full throttle. It was very
irritating, like the sound waves would get way back in the
small parts of my ears and make those little hairs
vibrate. After a warm-up, noticed increased smoothness
at all RPM's. Gradually rolled on throttle wide-open in
first gear. Felt the increased power as bike came on cam
and prepared for front wheel to get air. Tire broke
loose so hard it was almost like I hit neutral. Bike
never did that before!
Got back to shop and
now Perley wants one for his California Custom. I am
convinced that as far as my bike is concerned 90% of the pipes
out there are junk as far as enhancement of performance.
This pipe has everything. Noise level is not a problem,
much better than the baffled collector!!?? Will be
sending y'all a pic of bike when weather clears. Have a great
holiday season, Mike Phipps

hard the bike pulls from 3 grand to about 6000 RPM. The time
between gear changes is much quicker than when I ran
I have some sorting out to do with the carb which I expected. The only bitch I have is how long it took to get the pipe!!! The mounting bracket you sent needed to be reworked and spaced out but thats no big deal. Anyway, Im very pleased with the pipe and will be looking for one for my wifes softtail in the future. Thanks, Dave"
It's a miracle we still make these. Lucky it's short term memory that goes first. 00-1094 Chrome Pro Stock 1 3/4" B Style. It is fun to outrun a new Twin Cam bike though.
Customer writes: "Greetings RB Racing Staff. I am sending you a video ( no longer online) as well as a huge thank you. I was in the market for an after market exhaust for my father's 1977 FLH Shovelhead. I had no real idea that there aren't many options for the older bikes. I searched through miles of internet junk until I came across your brand on a forum. I had never heard of the RB Racing product before so I quickly became interested after visiting your web site and seeing that you had exactly what I would need. I sent one question in an email and got immediate feedback. I settled on the 00-1097 C style in a Titanium finish.
The research I had done had me a bit concerned over the amount of time it would take to get my pipe after ordering it. I ordered in the first week of November on the web site and was hovering at a month when I sent an anxious email. Lynn got back to me that day with the tracking number telling me the pipe was on its way. It arrived December 14th, which worked perfect because my Dad's birthday is the 15th. Probably the coolest birthday present he has opened in a long time.
I'm no mechanic. So when we took off his old straight pipes and started with the install on this I was a little skeptical. I was so happy when we had the new LSR's on in about 20 minutes! The gaskets fit perfectly, all the bolts and brackets were a tight seamless match and the system is on so tight that you could stand on them. The research and design put into this system is outstanding. I had figured we would have to do some adjusting with the rear mount for the simple fact that nothing goes on without some issue. There was no issue, snag, or any sort of problem.
The video is from March 7th. One of the first real sunny days here in Connecticut. We have not had the chance to put any real mileage on yet. There have been a few trips around the block to get a sense of how the system acts. I was surprised to notice that when you are riding it has a smooth, subtle rumble. With the pipe being behind the ears it makes a big difference rather than having the front pipe on a standard system right below you. But make no mistake, the pipe is LOUD! Down shifting and letting off makes that thing bark to no end! Awesome! The performance difference was noticeable as well. There is a much quicker response at the low end which gets the RPM's up quick. The bike is fairly built as it is so this only helps it be a super sleeper.
I can't wait to see the looks it gets when we do get out this season. Who has a Titanium pipe? Who knows about RB Racing here in CT? We do. And we are going to be spreading the word going forward.
Again, Thank you for making such a superior product. We will be enjoying it until that bike runs no more. Mat"
S&S SA B2 Bonneville Porting
Whenever we do something serious like our 139" Bonneville ORCA motor we defer to the experts, especially when we are dealing with raw, unfinished ports the size of a dime. Branch O'Keefe is simply the best in the business and even Jerry Branch (retired) got involved in the decision making. Take a look at some ports that about 90 years cummulative experience came up with. All John O'Keefe and Jerry Branch asked was what we thought the exhaust ports should be like in terms of flow based on our 30 years of turbocharger experience. We all agreed on a number and this is what the result was. Ports for 400+ horsepower.
John does the Bonneville porting of our S&S SA B2 heads. Quite a few baggers are going 124" with SA B2 heads...John has pushed these out past 200 horsepower normally aspirated, winning horsepower shootout contests and running hard at Bonneville. He knows how to improve them which is why we asked him to work on ours. We make special exhausts for the S&S SA B2 heads with their raised ports and four bolt shallow pocket configuration. John has pushed his B2 porting past 200 hp.
If you want the best cylinder head work for your Twin Cam, Evo or even Shovelhead contact Branch O'Keefe. That's what we do and have done since 1976 when Jerry prepared our cylinder heads for the 24 hour Endurance racers we built and took to the 1977 Bol D'Or in France. John O'Keefe knows you don't want "down time" so he has an exchange program for cylinder heads. Harley has made a lot of changes in their castings and it's best to go with Branch O'Keefe as differences in machining, alloys, and specifications can cause problems if you deal with porters who don't have the inventory and the experience.
John does not have "homing pigeons" like other outfits where seats come loose, the work is sloppy, or cheap valves that stick or gall are installed. He treats every head they produce as if it was his own. Sort of rare these days.
103" Porting and Pistons...Stock Heads
John O'Keefe of Branch O'Keefe has 103" kits for late model Twin Cam engines. Stock 103" engines from Harley make maybe 80 horsepower. This just doesn't cut it. Branch Specifications: Larger inlet and exhaust valves; .060" decked cylinder head; compression releases; new valve guides; racing valve springs; flowed inlet and exhaust ports; forged lightweight pistons contoured to match quench style combustion chamber; and BP-600 Branch camshafts. Not a bad idea to get a matched, proven, combination.
We've ridden a few of these and they work well. Compression is about 10.7:1. A lot of guys are going with the 103" engines.
2" Shovelhead Pro Stock
We hand make all our LSR 2-1 Pro Stock systems but a 2" Shovelhead requires a lot more work. Sort of an odd request, but this one is for a long term customer of ours who has set numerous records with Shovels with our exhausts and is now planning to go to Bonneville with a built 113". The pipe is a 2" LSR 2-1 Pro Stock 00-1381 and is headed off for a Silver Ceramic finish. Customer runs a ported Super"D" with Thunderjets and a ram air system.
You can't get a 2" pipe at the ports as we can on our other systems so we have to "bell" the 1 3/4" into the 2" primaries. Front primary slips and the exhaust is designed for the taller engine. The customer asked for O2 ports so we installed them. We do not sell "raw" systems.
On all Shovelhead pipes, including this 00-1381 Chrome 2" Pro Stock, the front primary tube is a slip fit. We do not offer heat shields for Shovelhead designs.
The front primary tube has an Oxygen Sensor Port as we have done for over 20 years. You can use a RSR Air Fuel Ratio gauge to monitor ant set your carburetor's fuel mixture.
2" Shovelhead B Style (FX)
00-1382 LSR 2-1 Pro Stock 2" Shovelhead for stroker FX series. Headed for Silver ceramic coating. Old iron, but fast old iron. We do not sell "raw" systems.
1 3/4" Shovelhead Pro Stock
93" and "Bad to the Bone" with Branch O'Keefe heads. Shovelheads are back and they will surpise many a Twin Cam owner. Old School is new school. LSR 2-1 Pro Stock 1 3/4" 00-1097 in chrome.
Customer writes: " Your pipe freakin ROCKS! I got it delivered to the shop...6 hours after it was supposed to be there(PLEASE, FIRE FEDEX, their 'Ground' service sucks!) Since I helped out a bit in the shop, I got everything done for $60 to include a pair of 'stock' exhaust flanges. My big fat thick SS flanges would not fit, but it's cool.
We got the pipe on, and everything mounted up with loctite and Ultra Black right nice. 'American Heat' looks real good wearing it. Fired it up, and all I could say was,"WOW!" My buds and I call it LAF!, or Loud As Fuck! Yeah, it was inside the shop. Outside as I left, it just sounded real good, like it should have. Out on the road, holy shit, it went like a scared cat when 'American Heat' came on cam and went full song. Front wheel comes up in each gear from a dead stop (and a 3000 rpm launch).
I gotta say, I am always looking at the Silver like I should have got Black, but shoot, it looks freakin SWEET! I LOVE IT! I attached some pics for you guys. Thank you for making this special for me. The slight upsweep really looks good. Maybe in a few years or so I will be ordering my next one depending on when I build my bobber. I am set on an S&S Flathead Power Knuck, but it will have to have a chrome LSR but with the requisite Fishtail at the end to fit the look of a 1947 Bobber just right. Once again, THANK YOU! YOU GUYS ROCK! James".

EFI and LSR 2-1 Pro Stock
Screaming Eagle Super
"SEST" or Greek for the worst written instruction manual we've ever seen. We defy you to figure out how to get various charts and graphs to open and how to get to the advanced versus basic tuning options. We suggest you look around the internet as the manual is of little help.
A number of years ago we bought one of these to see what was involved. If you can figure out the software navigation issues and install a map that somewhat matches your bike, you simply ride around, observe the RSR Air Fuel Ratio Meter display and make edits. The tuning was fairly straight forward. Without the Dual Gauge we don't know how you would do it. We just ride.
Harley had to recall these after being fined.
They are no longer available. Newer versions are limited.
Whenever you look at an exhaust and see it caked in black soot you know the bike is not running or tuned correctly. Back in the mid 1980's we did a carburetor development program for Keihin Corporation for their 41mm CR Race carbs on both Shovelheads and the new Evolution motors. When we were finished the bikes got 56 mpg cruising and 46 mpg if you ran them harder...and after 500 mile tests the pipes were perfectly clean inside and the exhaust ports were dead clean.
If you take the
exhaust system off a modern Closed Loop BMW, as we have,
you will find them dead clean or whitish inside. Harleys
should be the same.
We always ask what
mileage people get from their "tuned" or modified Harleys
after "Dyno tuning"....The universal answer is 37 mpg or
less. If they don't know, we ask them if they have to gas
at 100 miles. Most do.
Once a customer bought an exhaust from us and took his bike to two different dynos in search of the "117 Hp" he was looking for for his 103...He got 110Hp. After pissing and moaning we told the guy to give us our exhaust back and we found it caked in soot. So much for tuners and their tail pipe sniffers that see lean reversions...They just kept adding fuel. You tell the customer to put on our RSR Air Fuel Gauge to monitor the mixtures F/R in the real world...No, they want a "Dyno Tune". We have dynos...we know what they do and can't do.
Pictured above is the exhaust port from a 2017 Dyna Low Rider S with about 100 miles on it. No soot. Delphi engineers seem to have done a very good job. Looks like the port you would see on a BMW. Now, when your "Tuner" gets finished with it, it will most likely be full of soot. Logic plays no part in people and their toys. EFI is complex...put in different cams, change air cleaners, port the heads and all this goes out the window. Brave new world.
Fuel Injection..A Reality Check
Delphi Injectors come in various ratings: 3.91
grams/second; 4.35 grams/second; 4.89 grams per second
(CVO); and 6.00 grams per second. These ratings are
static i.e. shorted open. Pulsed static is about 90% of
this i.e. what you could expect if you maxed them out in
your ecu calibration software. If you hold them to an
85% duty cycle they, respectively, offer the following
horsepower potentials: 105 hp; 117 hp; 131 hp and 161
hp. Now, you can squeeze more out of them by going past
85%, but this is the point where they are still
We get calls
from people building wazoo big engines and they are
still running the stock injectors. We suggest you get
the right injectors for your engine building projects.

If you have a late model Harley with a Fly-By-Wire throttle you do not need an add-on gizmo. We suggest you get Steve Cole's TTS Master Tune software described above. When purchased with RB Racing exhausts and turbocharger systems we offer a $50.00 discount i.e. $375.00 v $425.00 list. TTS MasterTune allows you to adjust your electronic throttle without the expense of additional add-on devices as well as your fueling and everything else in the Delphi ECU.
New Small (12mm) and Older (18mm)
In 2010 FLT/H series went to the new small heated O2 sensors. The Dynas and Softails went to these in 2012 and the Sportsters in 2014.
We are tooled for these smaller sensors on all the newer models. The small O2 Sensor models have a floating ground voltage offset that has a complex scheme that varies the signal to meet emissions purposes. If you think you are going to trick these you are in for a surprise.
You must specify the year of your motorcycle when ordering the RSR Dual O2 Gauge. Models with the small OEM O2 sensors will require two 18mm O2 ports in addition to the 12mm ones to monitor your bike as you ride. Our RSR Dual Gauges will monitor the 18mm high temperature O2 sensors we supply. 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. Better than a dyno which tends to overheat your motor quickly skewing your tune.
RSR Air Fuel Ratio Gauges...Real World Tuning
The Mother of all gauges! Not a gauge, but a precision tool that will tell you exactly what your engine is doing in real-time. Gives you instantaneous read-outs of air/fuel ratios from 17:1 to 10.5:1 and indicates maximum power ratios. Four color display is easily read in direct sunlight and automatically dims at night. Waterproof, billet aluminum construction. Your significant other will cheat on you but this gauge will never lie! It won't keep you warm at night, but a perfectly running engine will look and sound the same when you wake up next to it the morning after.
Single RSR O2 Gauge: Reads the front cylinder in non-efi models. It is simply the best way to evaluate the tune of your motorcycle and saves expensive and often inaccurate dyno time. Real world tuning while you ride...Observe and then make adjustments. Mounted permanently. Waterproof.
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 either 1.00" or 1.25" 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.
Since we have been
doing closed loop fuel injection
systems for Harleys for more than 30 years and have
been putting O-Sensor Ports in our exhausts for the same
amount of time, we have both single and dual O2 ports for
our full range of exhausts. Our RSR
Air Fuel Ratio Gauge is the best investment you can
make for monitoring and optimizing your engine tune.
All LSR 2-1 exhausts
come standard with one or two O2 ports (Sequential EFI
models)...18mm or 12.5mm. O2 or Lambda sensors are a
necessity for either carbureted or non closed loop efi
(Weber Marelli and Early Delphi) Harleys. We should know, as
we have a lot of experience with them and have been doing
Closed Loop EFI systems since 1989.
The Single and Dual gauges ship with six feet of MIL-W-22759/32 wire. The first 24" is Raychem DR-25 sealed on both ends. If you wish to have a connector at the 24" point there is a $50.00 charge to install either six position (single gauge) or eight position male/female Deutsch DTM connectors with Raychem DR-25 sleeving.
The gauge is housed in a hard anodized round enclosure in a standard 2" format with a 2.250" bezel, center back mount, with a 5/16" x 18 stainless socket head cap screw. The gauge will show fuel ratios from 17:1 to 12.0:1 (or richer). The gauge is visible in daylight and automatically dims for nighttime operation. Only a single L.E.D. illuminates.
Very easy to interpret at a
glance. Scale is, left to right, lean to rich: three greens,
three yellows, two orange and two red l.e.d.s. You simply
cannot "read" spooling digital numbers.
The white arrow indicates the maximum power mixture, the second orange light, which is 13.2:1. Transitory enrichments should not, if the engine is warm (>200F Oil temp), go past the first red light. Readings at the far right side of the scale, the second red light, are simply too rich. Proper closed loop operation will cycle back and forth from green to orange around the center of the display.
It is simply the best way to evaluate the tune of your motorcycle and saves valuable dyno time. Mounted permanently. Waterproof.
Whether your bike is
carb or efi this is the best way to tune...By riding and
observing, not on a static dyno. Dynos are not exactly real
world in terms of loads, airflow, or transitionals, and even
if you had a million dollar AC Transient dyno room, you
would still have to do real world testing. The gauges are
dead accurate and are millisecond fast responding which
makes it very simple to interpret or remember, even at a
glance, while you are dodging cars watching for cops. We
have a Superflow CycleDyn which
gives a better real world correlation than other
dynamometers but we still evaluate air fuel ratios when
Anyone who tells you
optimizing tuning is easy is full of shit. Engineers at Ford
say they spend two years just perfecting tip-in or initial
throttle openings. Ride, observe,..then change or edit. Real
Pretty soon Harleys will all be watercooled then you really won't be able to tell the difference between Milwaukee and Hammatsu. "The Man" will be sniffing your butt and planting microchips and gps modules up your ass so they can mail you a speeding ticket and keep track of your movements. They already have data recorders on your car so they know what you were doing when the biggie happened. Brave new world. Monitor your engine to get the most out of it before the NSA monitors your tail pipe.
Customer writes: "When the gauge arrived I knew it would be of a very high quality, it has far surpassed my expectations. I was very eager to get this installed and take a look at my tune. Amazing to see how little adjustments on the carb effect the AFR.

New Exhaust Tech Section
We have given a bit of an overview on the design of Harley Davidson exhaust systems for those who have questions about primary tube length, tube diameters, collector design and the pulsations and wave timing in a V-Twin engine.
Pictured above is 00-1306 LSR 2-1 Pro Stock 124 Challenge pipe. Available with standard port (2 stud) or B2/SA (4 bolt) cylinder heads in silver ceramic, black ceramic, SS Titanium ceramic or in chrome finishes.

If you have a very tall motor like a 145" S&S with the B2 heads we have to lengthen up the primaries by lowering them for the taller engine. S&S uses these in their Dyno testing and on thier "Mule" test bikes. How ere make the front pipe is a bit of a variable due to chassis differences. Some aftermarket frames like the Chopper Guys FXR will have additional clearance for the front tube.

S&S Twin Cam Oil Pump
If you are running one of these and want a "C" Style Exhaust for your Twin Cam engine let us know as we have a different type "C" Style exhaust that fits these pumps. If you are running a normal cone then there are no fitment issues. Our regular "C" pipe goes up close to the original cone. In the case of the S&S pump pictured above we have to route the rear pipe differently due to the "block" shape.
"B" Style pipes are unaffected by the S&S Oil Pump design.
Joe Boyd won the 2005 AHDRA S&S Super Stock Western Division Championship with his 00-1306 Challenge pipe on a 113" motor.

Thanks for the awesome 124 Challenge pipe it kicks some serious ass. 2006 AHDRA season we won the Western Super Gas Champion Ship running your pipe on a TP 113 for 2007 we will be running a TP 124, and from testing this bike is going to be fast!!! I can't figure out why anyone would run anything other than a RB Racing exhaust. Go figure. Anyways Thanks for the pipe, you guys rock.... Joe Boyd"
Actually the pipe is just a small part of the puzzle. Buying one won't make you a champion. We might have something new for Joe in the Spring. It's just another part of the equation. For those of you who don't drag race we would just remind you it is a brutal sport. The smallest hesitation or error and you are on the trailer. Sort of like in the Army and the Drill Sergeant reminds you there are two types of Bayonet fighters..."The quick and the Dead".
RSD Pro Stock Challenge
Right side drive. LSR 2-1 Pro Stock
Jeff Richardson (see contact info above) works 24 hour days to build bikes like these. Matador red, like waving the flag at the bull. One-off customs that you can ride daily. "Fat Ass Toys" as Jeff calls them. Electrics that work and a ride that won't leave you stranded. LSR 2-1 Pro Stock that Jeff had high temperature coated locally. Arlen who?
Softail 124" Challenge Pipe
00-1306 Challenge pipe on a 124 " S&S motor. Customer loved the pipes then bought a stupid set of billet heads with non standard ports. We only make these pipes for standard ports or S&S Special Application "B2" or "SA" heads. Stay away from the billet crap. We don't custom make these for stupid heads.
Hard Tail Challenge Pipe
127" rigid with a 00-1306 Challenge pipe with Silver Ceramic finish. Black rubber streaks in the asphalt jungle. Old school rules.
LSR 2-1 Pro Stock - 12 Degree Merge Collector - No Baffles
Focused power! The smoothest internal construction
of any 2 into 1, without any baffles, bumps, shelves, or sharp
turns. Hand-made merge collector is expertly heliarced and just
as smooth on the inside as it is on the outside. These are real
formula one stuff for your 1908 air pump and don't have any
baffles in their 2 1/2" diameter tail section. Don't ask us for
baffles because we won't put them in there as the i.d. of the
tail section is optimum as it is. These are special animals for
high compression, high horsepower engines that will rip the the
air like a P-51 Mustang under full boost.
We make these in both 1 3/4" as well as 2" primary tubes in both "B" and "C" style variations for most models...Most of them end up on high compression big inch motors (the far side of 100 c.i.) in a 2" B Style, typically on an FXR chassis. If you need a 3/8" offset for your wide tired Kenny Boyce creation or if you have some 3/4"taller cylinder arrangement be sure to tell us before you order. If you want to make more power you simply have to run one of our LSR 2-1s.

Mid Peg B Style
Mid peg Dynas and FXR's can get tight with brake pedals, frame bosses and peg mounts. It seems we were always making adjustments over the last 20 years to account for changes in oil filter location, clutch cables and oem engine case changes. Evos, Dynas and aftermarket variations of these two.

New 145" S&S Tribute Systems
We have been asked by S&S to provide LSR 2-1 systems for the 145" S&S Tribute engines. We have tooled up to produce three versions for the Dyna and FXR style transmissions. It does get complicated however.
If you have a very tall motor like a 145" S&S with the B2 heads we have taller primaries for the taller engine. S&S uses these exhausts in their Dyno testing and on their "Mule" test bikes. How we make the front pipe is a bit of a variable due to chassis differences. Some aftermarket frames like the Chopper Guys FXR will have additional clearance for the front tube.
LSR 2-1's Bonneville,Dyno &Track Proven
If you want to make power on a multi-cylinder engine you have to use a collector system. Whether it's a V-Twin or a V-8 it's the same, and no less an authority than the famed engine builder Smokey Yunick will tell you that. Not using free exhaust energy to help your engine breathe is downright criminal. No matter what the conventional wisdom is, staggered duals on a Harley will not make more power. You simply cannot escape the fact that a properly designed 2-1 will give you more useable torque where you need it, in the 2000 to 4000 rpm range, which means less downshifts and less rpm to get the job done. A set of short staggered duals at peak rpm can be made to produce good power but they will be dead on their ass until they get there, whereas an engine developed around an LSR 2-1 exhaust can be made to perform from the bottom up with no dips in the torque band!
Baffling Alien Discs and
Aluminum Butt Plugs
Our testing has shown that the Harley V-Twin is
extremely sensitive to back pressure which is why 2-1's that use
small or restrictive collectors don't breathe well, and why restrictive
baffles shut the motor down. Disc type baffles are good
for spark arrestors on dirt bikes but they have no place on a
big inch V-Twin. You don't make power by adding restrictions to
your exhaust system whether it's a bunch of stainless discs or
some damn piece of aluminum billet machined into a Harley butt
plug! Ever wonder why they had to put a hole up the center of
the discs? Well, one reason was the discs are so damn
restrictive you have to have several pounds of them to get
enough flow through their waffle shaped passages.
Good mufflers, but they have nothing to do with performance and they sure as hell do not create vacuum as has been claimed. When you get confused by all the bullshit simply ask the following question.." Do they run them in NASCAR or in Formula One?". Nope, they run straight pipe collector systems without any stupid discs or aluminum butt plugs.It's always funny how when the money is on the line, all the little things like discs, billet caps, anti-reversion flaps, reverse megaphones and other such nonsense somehow don't make the field.
Anything else isn't "Pro", just prophylactic
If you look at any other "pro" or "king"
self-proclaimed winners of the typewriter wars, take a close
look ar their collectors and their tail sections On your
LSR Pro Stock you get a boost out of the gate when you hit our
CNC machined turbo venturi...On the other pipes you either run
into a jagged weld or some necked down piece of torky-porky poor
Headed for the collector on your LSR Pro Stock it high velocity all the way...On the other pipes there are a barage of aluminum butt plugs, stupid discs 90 degrees to your path, and an assortment of flat airfoils and anti-reversion tank traps to slow things down. Get the picture? This isn't rocket science. Just build a clean system with a gentle smooth flowing collector and the rest will take care of itself.

"Dear friends at RB Racing,
Just installed my new LSR 2-1 Pro Stock pipes on my 120ci Merch with a 6-speed Baker transmission. Haven't had a chance to Dyno Tune yet (the best Dyno guy in town is swamped just before Sturgis). But I can tell you one thing even without having my motor Dyno Tuned it fucking RUNS like a striped ass monkey!
I've had Python-3's, Hooker, Thunderheader, two different types of Vance & Hines and the RB Racing pipes are THE BEST pipes out there! I can't believe the increased horsepower ( and I am sure torque). Without measuring on the Dyno machine yet I am screaming out to 90 mph in seconds. It blows my mind!
And the sound, oh God the sound. My motor is finally breathing like it should and your pipes are the reason why. All the power junkies that ride with me are drooling, they can't believe it either. I can't wait for the Dyno results but right now I am packing for Sturgis. This 120ci mean mother is ready to roll 90+mph from Omaha to Sturgis.
THANKS RB Racing for a tremendous product. You guys know your shit and the dynamics of exhaust theory. Thanks again! Know the rules, bend the rules, think 500 miles ahead.----- Steve "WFO" Kendall "
"The lady I placed my order with asked me to send a picture of my bike once we mounted the exhaust, I told her I would. The finish on the exhaust was flawless. The fit was perfect. The bike sounds better than it has ever sounded and runs better than it has ever run. I couldn't be more satisfied. My brother, who is not easily impressed, was equally impressed. He didn't like the look or the sound of a 2-1 exhaust until he seen and heard your Pro Pipe. Thank you for producing a far superior product, it was well worth the wait. "

LSR stands for Land Speed Record and that
means only one place...The Bonneville Salt Flats, the Great
White Dyno. We have the only gas powered street legal bikes over
200 mph and we're damn proud of it. RB Racing doesn't race
typewriters, we race motorcycles and when someone says they get
a 70% gain from their system, ask them for their 200mph
Bonneville Records or any records for that matter. Hell, if we
raced typewriters it sure would be a lot easier, not to mention
The fact of the matter is 98% of pipe
manufacturers never have raced anything.
We place an LSR tag on each exhaust system we
make so they can be easily identified. Every now and then over
the last twenty plus years someone decides to copy one of our
designs, usually because some customer is very happy and he
"stirs up the pond". They copy the general look but not the
features that make them work. The tags eliminate any question
about whether it's an RB Racing design or not and allows
people admiring your bike to know the pipe's origin.
The tags have proven to be very popular and have been used since 1992. Every now and then someone asks us to not place the tag on their system to which we answer..."send us an affidavit certifying that you have removed all manufacturer logos from your tires, engraved Performance Machine logos from your brakes, Mikuni or S&S identifications from your castings, Harley identifications from your gas tank, Nike logos from your tennis shoes etc. and we'll consider it". The last guy we let talk us out of this was getting his bike in Hot Bike magazine and said he'd give us "credit" for a one off pipe we designed. When the magazine appeared on the newsstand all we saw was "computer designed pipe by Sands Racing". That was the end of that.
New Cloisonne Tags
Like in the adage "The relentless search for perfection" we have upgraded the logos we put on our LSR Exhaust Systems. Previous tags were stamped and formed aluminum with silkscreened details. The new cloisonne tags are a precision die struck brass, nickel plated, with powdered glass fired in an oven then polished to a jewelry finish. These are direct replacements for our older tags and are available for US $25.00 postpaid via US Global Express (foreign) or Priority Mail (domestic US). They come with black headed rivets and are riveted in place with a light coat of high temperature silicone (Permatex 598B) behind the tag.
All RB Racing LSR Exhaust Systems feature our "new" (we've been quietly doing it since 1985!) CNC machined Turbo Venturis that actually "scavenge" to help your motor breathe. Machined from billet, these allow full 2" flow and eliminate the phony restrictions that other 1 3/4" to 2 1/4" pipes have at your exhaust port.
Pictured above is an LSR 2-1 Pro Stock C style (J) with 2" primary tubes, part number 00-1050. The bike features a Chopper Guys frame with a 121" TP Engineering motor with a 5/8" offset.
Our competitors must think you won't notice that they neck their 1 3/4" to 2 1/4" pipes down to as small as 1 1/2" to mate them to your exhaust ports. RB Racing's Turbo Venturies are expertly heliarced to each primary tube eliminating any internal obstuctions and insuring the maximum flow from each exhaust port. RB Racing won't build phony performance pipes...We sure as hell won't ask you to port your heads, put in bigger valves and a high performance camshaft then stick a bunch of stainless steel discs or machined aluminum butt plugs in the pipe to restrict the flow! And we damn sure won't put some silly "1950ish" reverse megaphone pipe with internal flat plates, baffles and air foils to screw up your performance. Our pipes make anywhere from 6 to 18HP over these stupid designs.
Our CNC machined Turbo Venturis are not compatible with the "bowl-shaped" late model OEM exhaust port gaskets and require early style "flat" gaskets for the LSR Exhaust Systems to both fit and seal properly. The narrow machined flat face of the Turbo Venturi must seat against a flat suface, not the bowl-shaped late model gaskets. Using the LSR Exhausts in combination with the wrong gasket will cause misalignment, inability to tighten the provided close tolerance aircraft nuts, and will force the bowl-shaped gasket into the exhaust port. The correct gaskets to use are: Harley OEM 65324-83 or Drag Specialties DS 174742.
Mandatory for a nominal charge of $ 9.95
are a pair of our LSR CNC machined gaskets which mate perfectly
with our Turbo Venturis. These are proven in over 16 years of
use on our race and turbo applications...the only gaskets that
will stay in a turbo bike for 25,000 miles! These gaskets
prevent any gasket "creep" into the exhaust flow and are one
more thing that will give you "an edge" on the competition.
We always wondered why people would port their heads, put in bigger valves and then squish the gaskets into their exhaust ports. We bet you never paid attention to what was going inside your exhaust ports for one very simple reason...you can't see what's going on in there once the pipe is tightened! The LSR CNC machined gaskets also insure perfect alignment of the exhaust system. Most fitment and alignment problems are traced to using either the wrong type of gasket or using old gaskets that have taken a "set". We've always used these on our race applications and it's time everyone who's concerned about performance should do the same.
RB Racing LSR 2-1 exhaust systems use either one or two slip joints depending on the model. We suggest you put a coating of Permatex 598B ULTRA BLACK in the slip joint. None of our slip joints use any clamps because then they wouldn't be slip joints anymore. The inner pipe gets hotter that the outer pipe and they grow into each other and form a tight seal. The 598B is a non hardening gasket material and will prevent any leakage from condensation that forms in the pipe and, with the usual carbon particles, will actually seal better over time. It also makes the pipes easy to take apart later on. Get a tube before you install your RB racing exhaust system.
General LSR 2-1 Installation Sequence
1. Remove the OEM exhaust and exhaust bracketry. If the bike has floorboards remove the right floorboard.
2. Pry the OEM exhaust gaskets out of the exhaust ports. We use billet gaskets instead.
3. Install the frame or transmission bracket provided. Use Blue Loctite on the mounting bolt threads into the transmission. Lockwashers under the bolt heads on the transmission mount. If through-bolt like on early rigid Sportsters or Shovels use lockwashers under the hex nuts.
4. Front and Rear
primary tubes: Install billet flanges and clips. Install front
pipe loosely with billet gasket and nuts provided. Loosely
affix the front heat shield to the pipe as you might not be
able to install the shield later with the rear pipe in place.
We use 1/4 drive ratchet plus extensions and 3/8" socket and a
3/8" wobble for the exhaust stud nuts.
5. If the rear pipe
has a slip joint (rubber mounted C Style) slip the rear pipe
into the tail section. You may use Permatex ULTRA BLACK.
6. Begin slip of tail section/rear pipe into the front exhaust slip joint (You may use Permatex ULTRA BLACK) and work the rear exhaust and billet gasket into the exhaust port. Loosely affix exhaust stud nuts provided. We use 1/4 drive ratchet plus extensions and 3/8" socket.
7. Slide 5/16" x 18 bolt(s) into slotted bracket on back of exhaust and thread these through the mounting braket. Loosely affix with lock washer(s) and hex nuts provided. Some exhausts may require a spacer (provided) between the exhast slotted bracket and frame/transmission bracket.
8. Gently tighted up all fasteners and nuts. Nothing can be in tension. You may use a rubber mallet to seat the slip joint(s).
9. Install remaining
heat shields and tighten front heat shield (5/16" Nut driver).
Completely wipe the pipe and shields down with a clean cloth
to prevent grease and oil stains from being baked on.
10. Run bike briefly
in place. Let it cool down and retighten fasteners. Reinstall
the right floorboard with hardware provided.
11. If ceramic finishes it is wise to go through several heat cycles. On modern efi closed loop systems they go into closed loop within minutes. Let bike idle for a few minutes then shut it down to let it cool. Several sessions of this will cure the resins as they are only oven-fired to 400F. Exhaust temperatures are >1000F.
12. Double check all
fasteners and ride the bike. Check your work afterwards. You
bought a Harley so you are already showing signs of dementia.
All LSR 2 into 1 exhausts require special close tolerance aircraft nuts to bolt the LSR Turbo Venturis to the exhaust port. Standard 5/16" x 24 hex nuts will not fit. Each exhaust comes with the required four nuts. It is recommended that you order an extra set (4) of these nuts, part number 00-1001, when you order your exhaust.
O-Sensor Ports Standard
All RB Racing LSR exhaust systems come standard
with a machined and heliarced oxygen sensor boss just below your
front exhaust port. This port is designed to accept and oxygen
sensor (18mm x 1.5mm) which will allow you to use our RSR Air/Fuel Ratio Meter to tune and
monitor in real-time your air/fuel ratio. Also, if you really
wish to get 55mpg and kick ass, our RSR
Fuel Injection's closed-loop heated O-Sensor will plug
directly into this port.
We supply both 18mm and 12mm O2 ports depending on
the application...In the case of late model 12mm we often supply
Custom Made for Your
Every LSR Exhaust is custom made for your
particular application. We can handle offsets for wider frames
and even build "taller" pipes for those applications that have
cylinders that may be 3/4" or more taller. No wire feed bubble
gum welds! All LSR Exhausts are fully heliarced for the cleanest
possible appearance. It takes five times longer and is much more
expensive but it is the best way to do it.
All motors are not the same size, so we offer all our exhausts in both 1 3/4" and 2" sizes as well as step header 2 1/2" LSR Nitro Duals...We are the only manufacturer to do this! Your new 100+ inch motor shouldn't be choked off with too small a pipe! Pictured above is a Confederate with a 120 Cubic Inch Merch motor with our LSR 2-1 Pro Stock 2" part number 00-1195.
People have the idea that closed-loop systems are completely self-tuning and that they are going to sell you some add-on gizmo that will automatically tune your efi bike. This is a crock of shit. The truth is that every engine is different and, in the Harley world, difference is the norm as there are limitless engine build combinations.
In Detroit, Japan, or Germany, they spend thousands of man-hours developing base maps for their automotive applications. On top of these base maps goes the closed-loop feedback mechanism controlled by mathematical equations or algorithms that govern exactly how the closed loop operation will function. These base maps are not written so the vehicle will run perfectly without feedback i.e. maps are not designed for open-loop operation. The strategy for closed-loop operation is different as fuel requirements under different climatic and altitude differences can be as much as 30%. Unless the base map is constructed for the particular application, the O2 feedback mechanism will not work properly.
OEM correction schemes allow only very slight learning corrections or they will "throw" an error code. They do this for a very specific reason i.e. if things are going wrong, which is indicated by the system trying to correct out of bounds problems, then a sensor or something else is wrong. They are not designed to make large swings to correct calibrations that are way out of bounds.
Some add-on boxes for late model O2 sensor equipped oem Harleys eliminate the O2 sensors altogether. Why in the hell would you want to take a self-adjusting, sophisticated system and turn it into a gas guzzling low mileage dumb efi system? Beats the hell out of us and, since we make closed loop efi systems, we do have some experience in this area.
You bike should be left in closed loop, tuned in closed loop and monitored with O2 displays in closed loop. Correction factors defined in the oem code cannot be exceeded. Maps have to be rewritten for the changes to the bike so thje base map is in agreement with the oem algorithms.
Phone Sex and Remote Tuning
In some sort of logical disconnect a few
customers call us up wanting us to tune their bike over the
phone and then become increasingly indignant when we tell
them it just doesn't work that way. Now, we spent the better
part of 14 years, starting in 1976 working on carburetors,
jetting, needle design, and even designed and marketed a
flat slide carb for the Harley market. Thousands of man
hours representing about 5 months out of every year were
devoted to jetting issues.
It got to be a real issue i.e. it was an interesting experience to define what the correct air fuel ratios should be, experimentally figure out how to measure them, and then deal with tuning die cast critters, often modifying them with extra circuits etc. but, in the end, it was temporal and an endless loop that did not exactly pay the bills.
We did learn how to make things run well, not that anyone appreciated it. It was fun to watch people try to beat you when they couldn't. Knowledge. Hard work.
For the last 20+ years we were working on and
manufacturing closed loop fuel injections systems for Harley
Davidsons and have set numerous Bonneville, El Mirage and
Maxton speed records and won drag racing championships with
them. We spent over 3000 man hours writing and perfecting
Autocal.V6 prediction and analysis software for our RSR Fuel
Injection systems. Why did we spend 3000 man hours? Well, we
didn't plan on it, and it's a good way to flirt with
insanity, but we saw no other option as digital efi requires
hundreds of decisions, all of which are intertwined. No more
brass jets. Exponential combinations. Changing points, one
at a time is sheer insanity. Progress comes with increased
Guess what..We made EFI simple but people are
not simple..and few had any idea what to do even if you got
out the silver platter and handed it to them.
These days all Harleys are closed loop fuel
injected with a single throat throtttle body and are speed
density Delphi systems, all very complex. It's the same
formula we decided on 18 years ago. The only thing we
suggest is that you use O2 signals to monitor and tune the
system as the sensors are a hundred or so millisecond
accurate and must be monitored at the exhaust port where
temperatures are high and as far away from the outside
oxygen rich air as possible.
We suggest you use software, not hardware, to adjust your system using our RSR Air Fuel Ratio Gauges and keep your bike off of the dyno until the lights in these displays tell you your mixture is correct. Engines operate in a very narrow realm of air fuel ratios. If you want to go to the dyno after this...fine.
Just don't call us breathlessly demanding we tune your bike over the phone.
If you are going to use a chassis dyno it has to be a tool and not a toy. At RB Racing we use the Superflow CycleDyn as it best emulates the real world. We use it for development and not for publishing "dyno charts". Most of our work is with Pectel SQ6M controllers which have extensive internal datalogging and playback capabilities up to 2000Hz sampling rates. With the Superflow we can program specific tests and transient sweeps with our turbocharger systems up 750 hp in inertial mode or 500 hp in Eddy Current controlled accelerations.
For those of you
who like Dynojet "Dyno Graphs"..read this article.
Steve Cole (TTS MasterTune) who has spent untold thousands of hours on every dyno imagineable has this to say about CycleDyns:
Steve Cole: "In
the development side what I can say is the SuperFlow when
setup properly emulates the real world much better. As an
example the only way to get a DynoJet to give you HP and
TQ is a WOT unloaded run. The SuperFlow allows that plus
just about any other combination you like with real torque
output. So what does any of it buy you becomes the
question. I can tell you that if we tune to a DJ and get
the best we can, then repeat on the SuperFlow using real
world acceleration rates for the engine being tested the
results are very different. Take the final calibrations
and run them in both dyno's unloaded and the DJ developed
type calibration will show the most HP and TQ in those
conditions, on both the SuperFlow in DJ mode and the DJ.
Then take the SuperFlow controlled condition calibration
and load it in the bike the power will go up when tested
in the SuperFlow mode again which can only be done on the
Now the hooker, take the bike and put one of the finished calibrations in it and give it to the customer and say go ride it and come back after you've ridden it well, to know how it feels/runs. They come back after an hour or so then load the other calibration and ask them to do the same riding over and come back again. Each and everytime we have done this every customer has picked the calibration that was done on the SuperFlow under the controlled acceleration modes! So pick what works for you but there is a difference. Does it take longer, does it end with a measurable difference............. YEP!"
When we have turbo
bikes like our Road Glide
Turbo it gets a bit interesting to go testing in LA
traffic with police, cell phone cameras, and freeway
cameras. We still do real world riding with data
acquisition as the real world is where you ride.
People want "Dyno Sheets"...see below. We aren't going to test every damn camshaft, compression ratio, piston confguration, cylinder head etc as there is not enough money nor time to do so. However, we do testing for our own race development, R&D, and our personal development platforms.
People call us all
the time asking for "Dyno Sheets" and we patiently tell
them we do not provide self-serving graphs predicting
fantastic horsepower and torque gains. Plenty of customers
send us dyno sheets but, as we've been at this a long
time, we know the tuning game is too complicated to
provide numbers just to sell an exhaust. Tuning is a
When the EVO motors came out Jerry Branch published his famous manifesto on tuning 80" EVO motors...In short, unless you bumped the compression the horsepower was not forthcoming. Same these days. In 2014 John O'Keefe of Branch O'Keefe ran an extensive series of tests on OEM Twin Cam cylinder heads to see if he could offer a "less expensive" ported head as everyone with a grinder in his garage was suddenly an expert at cylinder head porting. John found out that any attempt to clean up the ports killed the flow and port velocities dropped. He scrapped that idea and kept his well-proven chamber modification, porting and valve replacement system.
Logic seems to be
in short supply when it comes to tuning. Tuning is not a
pipe changing exercise. The world these days is full of
customers who agonize endlessly over what to buy and then
dump these parts on some unsuspecting "shop-tuner"
expecting miracles. It just isn't going to happen.
Coordinated development is expensive and time consuming.
If it was NASCAR developer they might spend days searching
for a few hp or a different curve for a specific track.
If you are looking for warm cuddily sheets we are clean out of them. We post some that customers provide. We are tuners and you can buy all the trick parts in the world and a guy with a well tuned mild bike with a good power to weight ratio will kick your ass. Real world. Find a good tuner or become one. Look in the mirror.
Torque and Ruby Slippers
People get pissed at us when they ask for "numbers". We always tell them we "don't know" because after nearly 33 years of tuning and racing and designing we have seen too much and done too much to give any placebo answer. In fact it always depends on the bike and the tuner. No two bikes are alike. Maybe your bike was built on a Monday and they left a coke bottle in the gas tank (old Detroit wive's tale)...Some bikes are faster than others. Everyone believes their bike is "faster". It depends on the tuner and, these days, the bikes are more complicated. People change from chain to gear drives. They put on different cylinder heads. They switch cams. They add on tuning twiddle boxes. They tune, or the "shop" tunes. They "dyno" the bike...maybe even somebody rides the bike with instrumentation like our RSR Air Fuel Ratio Gauge.
People call us up then hang up when we tell them we don't know what their "gains" will be. We don't publish self-serving charts. We just take all the experience we have and build the best parts we can. People end up happy who buy the parts because they are well made and are designed to perform. We make different tube diameters and offer a wide range of systems for any particular bike so you will maximize your potential. There is no "One Size Fits All" at RB Racing.
People who don't buy the parts because we won't coddle them with assurances go elsewhere where Aunt Em will tuck them in and tell them what they want to hear.
Rubber or rigid we have a complete mounting solution for your bike. We see lots of combinations, from stock to offset customs and can provide mounting solutions for most applications. For some pipes like Shovelheads we give you a piece of steel strap and tell you to fake it. On the Shovels there is a slotted bracket heliarced to the back of the pipe that is just outboard of mounting points on the frame...two quick bends and two holes and you're done.
Note: All LSR exhausts require the use of the OEM flanges and circlips. The Harley part numbers for these flanges and clips are: 65328-83 (exhaust ring clamp) and 65325-83A (retaining ring). S&S Cycle SA or B2 (145" Tribute) cylinder heads require four bolt flanges which we provide and are part of the pipe assembly captured by or Special Application Venturies.
FXR: There are FXRs and then there are aftermarket FXRs like Kenny Boyce frames and a variety of "Rubber Mounted" pro street and quasi-Softail designs. For all of these we provide a 1/4" steel plate that bolts to your transmission. The bracket is slotted to allow for variations in engine mounting and has a selection of dowels that take into account the different transmissions available. The bracket attaches directly to the back of the LSR Pro Stock pipe, which has a slotted bracket heliarced to the pipe. The bracket does not interfere with billet aluminum swingarm pivot mounts like those on Kenny Boyce frames or other aftermarket pivot mounts.
FLH/FLT/Road King: Transmission mounted. 1/4" laser cut steel plate dowel mounted. No oem brackets are used. Remove oem brackets.
DYNA (Evo): Transmission mounted. 1/4" laser cut steel plate dowel mounted. No oem brackets are used. Remove oem brackets.
DYNA (TC88): Transmission mounted. 1/4" laser cut steel plate dowel mounted. No oem brackets are used. Remove oem brackets.
Softail (All): Pipe bolts directly to frame via 3" wide heavy steel "Z" bracket. No oem brackets are used. Remove oem brackets.
Evo Sportster: Frame mounted laser cut bracket replaces oem bracket (all rigid mount models). On 2004 and later models we supply a bracket that attaches to the outer cover that supports the mid part of the rear pipe. On 2004 models remove the large oem bracket which requires the removal of the rear final drive cover aft of the transmission. #30 Torx required to unhook rear brake rod.
Chrome, Silver Ceramic, or
Ceramic Black Finishes
Chrome or Ceramic: All chrome is full automotive grade duplex nickel, triple plate; Ceramic Black finishes are a two layer process with an underlying alumina ceramic covered with $200.00 per gallon semi-gloss black. "Black" pipes are fully polished as if they were to be chromed to remove any surface defects, then are blasted, ceramic coated, baked, tumbled, cleaned, shot with black semi-gloss ceramic paint and then baked a second time to complete the process. We've tried everything you can think of and these are the best finishes.
Both ceramic finishes can be polished or have scuff marks removed by using Mother's Aluminum and Magnesium Polish.
Newer Dual Coat Black Ceramic Finishes
We have a lot more people looking for durable ceramic finishes and we think we have the best finishes on the market. In the late 70's and early 80's we tried all sorts of coatings and paints and even used porcelain on some of our products in the late 1980's. The newer ceramic finishes are tougher and we use both Polished Silver, and Semi-Gloss Black to complement our usual chrome offerings. The newest "Turbo" Black finishes are a dual coat process that gives additional protection against scratches and nicks, providing two barriers against corrosion.
In more than three decades we have tried all sorts of black finishes: Kal Gard, VHT, Techline, and others. We also in the mid 1980's we even tried porcelain for awhile. It chipped and the heat distorted the parts. Most finishes will not survive over a long period unless they have a base coat to cushion rock strikes and scratches. The surface has to be perfectly prepared and most applications can fail if run too soon at elevated temperatures as they are typically baked at 450 to 500 deg F whereas the cure takes place at around 750 deg F. Lower temperatures will not cure the resins and they will fail once the bike is run. To get around this dilemma we have found the best solution is a 2500 Deg F Ceramic cushion base coat and a secondary Black Semi-Gloss finish on top of this.
Dual Coat Black Ceramic
finishes are therefore the most expensive as they involve a triple process.
First the parts are polished to remove any
tooling marks.Then the parts are zirconia
media blasted to prepare the surface. Then
parts are cleaned. The parts are base coated
with a 2500 Deg F ceramic and baked. The
next day they are sprayed with black ceramic
and baked for a third time.
On our Dual Coat Black Ceramic LSR 2-1 Exhaust Systems the heat shields and heat shield clamps are ceramic coated with 2000 Degree F satin black ceramic finishes. These finishes resist carb cleaners and other chemicals. Our Silver Ceramic LSR 2-1s use silver ceramic coated heat shield clamps.
RB Racing LSR 2-1 Exhaust systems are available
for S&S Cycle
Special Application "SA" heads with 2 inch diameter primaries.
The standard SA exhaust valve is a whopping 1.75" diameter (B2
heads are 1.800") with a special (non standard) exhaust port
configuration. These are the best production castings going
with their raised inlet and exhaust ports. Oh, you can fool
around with the usual porting bullshit, but you'll end up
where these castings start out in terms of cfm. Progress is
progress and year to year the only horsepower gains come when
you make the cylinder heads more efficient.
The problem with the SA heads is that nothing fits their four bolt pattern and the shallow non-standard pocket is decidedly bigger than anything sitting on the shelf...stock flanges need not apply! S&S figures you are going to fab your own exhaust so they provide a machined spigot that slips through the four bolt flange. The idea is that you get some springs and make up a slip joint and go creative...this doesn't work on street chassis.
Flanges and Turbo Venturies for S&S "SA" B1, B2, B-3 Heads
Compare the oem size exhaust flange on the left
that is used on "billet" motors with the "SA" flange on the right...get out your calipers and see what's holding these
other motors back. RB Racing is familiar with these four bolt
critters as we use them in our 113" RSR Fuel Injected ORCA motors both turbo and normally
For our 113 / 126 / 139 ORCA motors we use cnc
machined special Turbo Venturis that capture a laser cut four
bolt flange and are in turn heliarced to our 2" LSR 2-1
primaries. The Turbo Venturis flow 8 to 12% more than a
straight section pipe. Later T143 motors use the two bolt
If you have a set of these "SA Heads" and want a specific exhaust be sure to tell us at the time of your order. Adding an "SA" suffix to a listed part number will do the job. Remember they are only avaiable for LSR 2" primary designs. Pictured above is a silver ceramic coated LSR 2-1 Pro Stock for a 113" ORCA.
S&S 145 Tribute Exhausts Available
We custom make LSR 2-1 Exhausts for the taller 145" S&S Cycle Tribute EVO motors that were designed for DYNA style transmissions (Ness or other frames). Specially machined Turbo Venturies, 2" primary tubes, square four bolt flanges (no gaskets).
If you have a set of these "B2 Heads" and want a specific exhaust be sure to tell us at the time of your order. Adding an "B2" suffix to a listed part number will do the job. Remember they are only available for LSR 2" primary designs. Earlier "SA" heads and the 145" Tribute engines have different exhaust port seat diameters, so be sure you specify which heads you have.
