  1. We took our bike over to Scotty’s Speed Metal & Fabrication in Huntington Beach, California, where Scotty immediately removed the Lowrider’s stock exhaust muffler.

It’s no secret that Dynas and 2-into-1 exhausts go hand in hand. This is why the new H-D Dyna Lowrider comes with this setup right from the factory. That’s all well and good, but let’s face it: The stock exhaust is pretty clunky looking and leaves the bike without any sort of rumble this 103ci Twin Cam is just dying to blurt out. Well, there is a guy way up in Canada by the name of Tyler Sawicki who has been making some very cool custom exhausts. We also heard that many Dyna guys have been running his full systems for quite some time with much success. Knowing this, we asked him to whip up a Sawicki-style muffler to put on our stock 2-into-1 exhaust headers, and he jumped at the chance. To add to the looks of the Sawicki cone, we also reached out to Design Engineering Inc. (DEI) for some of its titanium-colored pipe wrap to kill some chrome and cool things down a bit. Here’s how the whole thing turned out. Be sure to check our tech page for other ugprades.
