Drag pipes on 124, will lollipops help?

First off, I will tell you that tuning a engine is not one of my mastered abilities.

With that being said, I have drag pipes on my 124. I would like to have a good performance exhaust, but between running mid controls and not wanting a 8ft long exhaust, I have not found any.

The pipes are pretty loud, but really dont sound that great and im having a difficult time getting my carb jetted just right. I hooked up the VOES system and that helped a lot, especially with the decel popping. I know the drags are not helping matters at all.

Now, I know on stock engines, drag pipes pretty much kill the mid range and lollipops can help. Does this apply to the bigger displacement engines with staggered drag pipes? Mine are Exotic Choppers High Society pipes that step from 1.75" to 2" to 2.25". Basically a Hell Bent Clone.(I got a good deal on these from scooters)

I tried these pipes on my last CFL with a 127ci in it and preferred the much shorter SikPipes 2 into 1 that CFLRat had made it for it. It just sounded way better.

These pipes have a higher pitched sound unless you get on it, then they sound great.

Anyways, back to the questions, would thumb screw lollipops make any difference on these pipes as far as the sound and jetting? Also if you have any ideas on a good exhaust that might fit my bike, please let me know.

Current bike and Pipes


Previous CFL with SikPipes 2 into 1. (sounded fuckin awesome)

The answer to that question is a resounding yes, if you want to stay with your pipes I recommend Thunder Monsters, they work and sound great. They are glorified lollipops but I have used them personally in 4 different bikes and they just flat out work, not cheap, but they work.

Here's an excellent article on the subject of exhaust...

Thanks guys.

I was looking at ordering some Big City Baffles but they dont make one for 2 1/4" pipes. I will try the lollipop and see if that helps it any

question on jetting, I have a crate S&S 124 and the Super G. Not changed any jets.

However, My city is roughly 1,900ft elevation and im running the drag pipes. Any guesses as to what direction to go with the jets?

I think my Ultima 127 came with their G like carb and jets 32 and 80 and it runs pretty decent and open pipes big growls - 1 1/3 to 2 to 2 1/2.

I believe my 113 with open pipes uses 31/78
