Upgrading a Forty-Eight With an RSD Tracker Exhaust and Vance & Hines Air Cleaner
The Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight comes rock-stock looking mean and lean from the factory. With the fat front tire, peanut tank, and classic styling, it’s a great-looking beast as a newborn. If it wasn’t for big brother trying to constantly reduce our carbon footprint, I think all V-twins should breath freely through a set of free flowing pipes. This is probably why exhaust systems are one of the most popular first year fixes.
The RSD Tracker 2-into-1 exhaust system looks straight off a warplane ready to shoot big rounds. Its sleek, mid-bike posture with just enough chrome complements the classic looks of the Sportster and gives it the big-boy growl it so desperately deserves. We also chose to install the Vance & Hines Header Wrap Kit as well as a VO2 air intake with a black Skullcap Cover.
Vance & Hines goes to great lengths to provide step-by-step instructions on the installation of all its exhausts, so always consult the directions for your particular application.
