In the never-ending quest for more power, there are many options available. A noticeable addition can be had from a high-flow air cleaner upgrade, and high-performance slip-on muffler swap. That’s exactly what we were thinking for the ’10 Dyna Wide Glide (WG) in our test bike stable.
Harley-Davidson’s Screamin’ Eagle line features tried and true components for those hungry for more power. And its products won’t break the bank while giving you that added oomph to pass big rigs on two-laners without thinking twice.
The Street Performance Staggered Dual Mufflers ($349.95) fit ’08-later FXDF models, and ’10-later FXDWG models, and are available in chrome with black slotted end caps, black with chrome slotted end caps, or black with brushed nickel end caps. Brushed nickel or black head pipe heat shields are available to match. The mufflers are 50-state legal and claim to deliver a nice throaty tone and a bump up in the pony department. Since the WG features a chrome theme throughout, we chose the chrome with black end caps mufflers.
To go along with the mufflers, the Screamin’ Eagle Stage I Air Cleaner Kit ($139.95-$149.95) complements overall performance. The Stage I provides a freer breathing air filter and backplate that also claims a nice increase in power and torque. It’s model-specific and fits multiple Twin Cam applications. For this bike model, a new air cleaner cover was needed.
The Smooth Air Cleaner Cover ($45.95) is a round air cleaner cover reminiscent of the Evo-engine-powered Harleys. It’s available in chrome and features a unique cutaway design that flows air to the air cleaner more optimally. It fits ’99-later Twin Cams with Stage I Air Cleaner kits.
We headed over to our Harley-Davidson Fleet Center in Gardena, California, where Alan Barsi performed the muffler and air cleaner swap. After the components were installed, we took the bike for a spin on the dyno at HB Hogs & Choppers in Huntington Beach, California. HB
