Do I need to remap my Harley after installing slip on mufflers?

In many cases, they have all the sound and style benefits of a full system. However, slip-on exhausts won’t do much for performance. Because the midpipe and headpipe remain stock, the weight-saving numbers aren’t extraordinary. Likewise, a slip-on exhaust won’t achieve large horsepower gains.
How do you remove a slip on pipe?
Spray a little WD-40 or so into the front between the muffler and the pipe. Let it soak for a while and work with the pipe some more. It will come off but may take a little more persuasion.
