I know this is like beating a dead horse, but I still haven't found a clear cut answer. I am about to install the Raw Reapers on my bike.....Do I need to get some sort of fuel management system?

I don’t think you “need to”. But I think you should so you can properly adjust you’re A/F mixture. This will make the bike run better, cooler, pass emissions, & help strop the pipes from turning blue.

Well, I'm sure I'll be getting a different set of pipes in the future, once I see a set that really catches my eye. With that being said, what are some options for the management systems and who has the best prices?

direct line parts has the cheapest prices have found for the Cobra and Powercommander 5. I didn't try ebaying or anything for those so you may find cheaper. That's just my 2 cents.

Exhaust

VTX1300 exhaust fits too with a little finess. My Exhaust thread i started is with a set of Jardines i got off ebay for 200 bucks. Im trying to keep cost of my bike insanely cheap right now (trying to pay the bike off quickly) but couldnt take the stock exhaust after a month. With my pipes i got i had to redrill the jardine bracket to put the placement where it had to be and had to put a slight twist to the mount between the muffler mount and the stock mount bolt holes. For fuel management currently its 3 companies Cobra, Fuggin, and the DynoJet

Well when I first put my Mortons on I did not have a EFI controller and it ran fine. Have seen RSS's after he changed out his pipes and he had some blueing going on. I can not tell you if mine would have since I have them ceramic powder coated black. I know that if you are thinking of changing out your intake as well you must consider a EFI controller of some sort. I run the Fuggin and enjoy it very much. I suggest you call or research which companies have used the set up you are thinking of using... i.e. Reapers with a spike or Reapers with a S&S intake.... and find the one that has tested the EFI to that combination. When I was purchasing my set up no one had suggested this research so have been doing a little trial and error. The big reason I went with Fuggin's is the fact that it is literally a plug and go system... about 20min install with the majority of the time finding how to route the leads along the frame. If you get the Fuggin, PM me and I will let you know how I did it to help out. Just my two cents. :cool:

I've been running the Raw Reapers for about 4 months now. When I bought them, I specifically asked that question and was told that as long as I don't remove the baffles, there is no need for any kind of fuel adjustment. I've had no problems, and see no need to remove the baffles. They're pretty loud.

Aye, but he's doing the RAW tips... From what I remember, those RAW tips have baffles in them, so no FC would be fine.

As others have suggested though, it would be on the more wise side to get an FC (but if you can't afford one right now cost wise, don't worry bout it till you can afford it)... As CBFury suggested mine are blue (kind of like the blue actually as I am going with a blue theme anyways), I also did notice when taking off the stock pipes, they were turning blue anyways? Guess it's a common situation... but I have a full length heat shields over my pipes so you can't tell... Also, ordering the Fuggin today based on CBFury's choice, as I like plug and play stuff :D

Great! Thanks for all of the input. I think for now I am just going to run the Raw Reapers without the FC on it....Once the funds build up, I'll go ahead and get the FC.
