As the say­ing goes, a mo­tor is noth­ing more than a big air pump. Air goes in, gets mixed with fuel, bing-bang­boom, goes back out. One of the best ways to in­crease power is to make this process as ef­fi­cient as pos­si­ble with an in­take, fuel man­age­ment, and flow­ing exhaust. Stock sys­tems are choked up from the fac­tory to pass emis­sions and noise reg­u­la­tions. By let­ting a mo­tor breathe bet­ter along with the right amount of in­crease in fuel, a mo­tor can run bet­ter, cooler, and pro­duce more power. We added a Co­bra USA 4-inch muf­fler with contrast-cut tips, Powr­flo Air In­take, and a Vance & Hines Fuel­pak 3 to help let our 2017 Street Glide Spe­cial come alive. In­stal­la­tion on some­thing like this can eas­ily be done at home with ba­sic tools, es­pe­cially with the ease of in­stal­la­tion on the Fuel­pak 3.

Here’s a look at the stock in­take and exhaust sys­tem. It’s sure shiny, but we wanted a more sin­is­ter blacked-out look.

2 Start by re­mov­ing the stock air cleaner cover.

3 In­stall the new K&N air fil­ter in its place.

4 Adding the Powr­flo in­take gives it an ag­gres­sive mus­cle-car look.
