We are sure this is not the first time you have heard the name Bassani in our magazine. Owner, big cheese, exhaust guru, however you have heard the name, Darryl Bassani has been bending pipes and making performance exhaust systems to fit motorcycles, cars, and trucks for both the street and the track for over 40 years. The Bassani Company in Anaheim, California, has a full line of exhaust systems for your V-twin needs and knows that every year things change and new models of bikes come out. One of these models is the Rocker-C, and many owners have been asking us what aftermarket pipes are out there for the bike.
We decided to install Bassani's Road Rage 2-into-1 system on our stock '08 H-D Rocker-C and run it on the dyno. We took the bike to Dyno Dave's in Orange, California, for the install and to borrow his SuperFlow Dyno. Dave has been building bikes and servicing the motorcycle world for decades, so he knows a few things. By the time we got our camera out and set up, Dave was running the bike to get the stock number. The first dyno run turned out 63.8hp and 81 lb-ft of torque. As the bike was cooling down, Dave rounded up his tools and a new set of exhaust gaskets so we could get started.
