Vance and Hines silencer

Hi all. Just put a high output silencer on my rod. Now have the check engine light up! Didn't expect this with it being just an end can. Is this normal? Thanks. Bren.

No, it's not usual. If you switch the bike on with the odometer button pushed down you'll be able to read the codes. You tube has a video of some chap doing this. Depending on what code you get will determine your next move.

What a great video. Thanks again for the tip. Cleared all the codes and I'm about to take it for a ride. Turns out they were all to do with the tail tidy I fitted a week earlier and hadn't ridden her since!

Wow. A tail tidy and pipes. The Street Rod really is something more than a temporary ride while you get the Sportster rebuilt, isn't it?

Yes definitely. Kinda knew in the first 2 minutes of the test ride. Just love the relaxed but agile ride. And the contrast in style Vs my sporty, which is a bobber. That's all the modifications I'm doing though, I just think they are crying out for a tail tidy. And noisey pipes save lives so are a must 😉
