There doesn't appear to be a factory lowering kit available like on the Dyna's..

I'd go back to the original shotgun exhaust and knock the plug out rather than screw around with baffles on those, that's what I do on mine and it sounds perfect. Stock appearance, no popping or banging, no tinnitus-inducing "Harley Rumble" just a little louder and better flowing than stock. Ditto on the seat

Harley does make a lowering kit and/or shorter shocks for the soft ail. I don't want to lower it. I want to raise it.

I'm not gonna track down the stock exhaust. My bro at the shop dialed in the Mikuni a little better and it runs like a dream. Vance and Hines makes a quieter baffle for these pipes and I will order them.

New seat is on the way.

The great thing about a Harley is that even an old one feels like a new one!

True. It's difficult to tell a 1934 80" Flathead from a TC96. About the same sound and hp!

It was cool watching my buddy dial it in with Philips screwdriver. Most of the bikes in his shop now he has to hook up a laptop to them to get them to run right.

Cycle World had a blurb about the history of the Sportster in this month's magazine. Apparently since the 1950's the XL has gained over 80 pounds and had virtually no increase in torque or hp.

Here are Buzglyd's new theme-song lyrics:

Well the Buzz-glide's Black
And he's an angry old Negro.

(Hey-la, hey-la, the Buzglyd's back)

He bought himself a Harley
It's a lame old Evo.

(Hey-la, hey-la, the Buzglyd's back)

Now he's headin to the Rock Store
Yeah he's grizzly and weathered.

(Hey-la, hey-la, the Buzglyd's back)


And the chicks are going nuts
Cause his jockeys are leather!

(Hey-la, hey-la, the Buzglyd's back)

Clever rhyming Evo with Negro.

You might have to re-write since it's a Twin Cam.
