If memory serves - his bike was almost completely stock.

The exhaust can be modified with a "slip on" muffler.

A MAP is a file used by a Power Commander to modify your A/F mixture. A power commander is an after market module - not really needed until you make more major internal mods...

I guess the real question is what type of change are you looking for? Louder, sleeker, better response, etc. There are a lot of slip on options. Baron's Nasty Boy, Bub, etc. If you search the forums you'll find as lot of threads discussing the pro's and con's of all types of ehausts.

As far as maps go, first you'll need a Power Commander fuel injection module. Then if you want a custom map you'll have to have it dyno tested, or find a Warrior owner with a similar set-up. There are a lot of guys on this site who have PCIII's and may part with one of their custom maps. The Power Commander website also has a bunch a maps.

Hope this helps.

I understand that the Bub Slash Cut has a pretty nice sound for a slip-on. Don't know that much about the Baron's Nasty Boy, but it has a real sport-bike look.

Here's the link to baron's

If you check around you can find them for much cheaper the the website lists.

Phats has pretty good prices, check them out:

But in all honesty, if you want the deep rich sound, you might not be satisfied with a slip-on

I know other's have already said this but did you make sure the dry breaks "clicked" into place. Often they may seem connected but they aren't. There's one under the seat, and one behind the AIS cover. First try disconnecting them and then reconnecting, make sure they snap in. And if that's not the issue, try checking the connection at the fuel pump, that's also been know to cause this problem.

Finally, what else might you have done when you installed the pipe? Any other mods? Inadvertently pulled on a wire? I'd like to help but need a little more info.

Bought a used bub Slip on from Ebay last week. Love the sound, but it does back fire a bit more than the old water heater (06 warrior BTW.) I'm gonna do the AIS block off and see if that helps. Bike does seem to run a litter quicker just with the new muffler.

JDB10181, I guess I missed this topic the first time around.

You have a great bike there. Ernie made a lot of detail changes that improved the functionality of the bike. He was really into detail. A lot of bolts were changed out to stainless steel. He put spacers and longer bolts on the rear horn mount, so the kickstand would be easier to reach. He swapped out the handlebars to a later model year for more comfort. Things like that. Details that make the bike just work better.

Now it is your turn to make it yours. Good Luck! and Enjoy!

I miss Ernie and S#*t eating grin. Always happy and good to be around.

I had that same slip-on for a year and it did like to pop. Even -AIS and dynotune for my PC3USB didn't solve it. I've been through a few exhausts and have settled on the 2-1-2 Speedstar. It almost never pops, sounds great with all the rumble especially when I get on it, and it leaves plenty of lean-room for the twisties. I should have figured since it is made specifically for the RSW.
