BAK and jet kit
dyna 3000 5500 34 degrees
Dave - The 04-05's were more prone to SVS
than succeeding years. It may have been related to the narrower valve edges and seats for those years; they 'upgraded' the seat area on the 06 and up.
I would recommend that you run the carb
on the lean side. When I ran the ProPipe and BAK, I had a Mikun 170 and clip on 4, but even that I was a bit on the rich side.
... are you running the Dyna on the 'A' settings?
I have had problens with the baffles and have welded one and installed bedded in silicon-resolved the cracking but the packing blows out in a few thousand miles and the fine mesh screen is gone after about 10,000 miles. After that a repack is almost useless because it does not last. Am contemplating the Billet end cap and performance baffle because of durability and ease of access (silicon and welding not needed)but would like to not increase the db level.
The cracking is not uncommon. I don't know what their policy is but V&H has replaced cracked baffles.
I used the fine wire mesh that they used in window screens. I found anything else too coarse. I used two layers next to the baffle, then one layer of packing and then one layer of wire mesh. Wrapped it snuggly with wire to keep it in place. However, no matter how you do it, the packing will blow out. The constant exhaust hammering will fragments glass and blow it out.
I also tried coarse stainless steel wool (regular wool will burn up). I doesn't blow out but it also doesn't quieten the pipe down much. Maybe I was too impatient and should have tried more layers.
