Make your Night Rod Special sound and perform like it should with a Stage 1 Kit from TAB Performance! Kit includes the following:

  1. One set of TAB Performance exhaust of your choice
  2. One Hi-Flo high performance air filter
  3. One fuel management system of your choice
  4. One high performance oil filter (OPTIONAL)
Why stage 1 kit? It comes down to a few very simple realities. The bikes come off the factory running lean, so the tuner will help with performance on its own. The bikes come suppressed on exhaust, so the free flowing exhaust helps with performance on its own. The intake filters are designed for the suppressed exhaust, so once the exhaust is opened up, more intake is needed to take full advantage of your performance exhaust. All three items really work together to ensure you receive full benefit from your purchase.

Loud pipes October 16, 2017
Reviewer: Michael from Kinross, Mpumalanga South Africa  
My V Rod is like my second wife, only problem is that she has always given me the silent treatment. This makes it very difficult for our relationship and I struggle to love her. So I have decided to give her a good climax to make her come alive. After I filled her double with a short fat tab performance pipe, I can't get her to shut up. She sounds so beautiful and unique, a little different than the traditional harley sound, more like a -  I have power sound. I have guys drooling over her now, but she is mine, only I get to ride her.

Install was a breeze and I love the sound and powe August 28, 2017
Reviewer: Andrew Loney from Milton, ON Canada  
All the parts shipped as ordered and the colour instructions were easy to follow.  I used the video on YouTube to supplement the instructions.

I like how all the OEM connectors are used and not left open.

The sound is unreal and the power is definitely noticeable.  That surge of power over 5000 rpm seems to be tuned out though. Rather, it's smooth delivery all the way to redline.

The reason it doesn't get five starts is the fit of the pipes. I got the baffled turn out and they MOSTLY fit. It seems like the bracket on the bottom pipe wasn't welded in quite the correct place so I wasn't able to bolt the two pipes together in the middle and the bottom one looks just a bit off.  The clamps and the bolts that do fit hold it just fine and you can't really see it's not quite all together. As for the pipes not being straight, I figured it gives it some character.

You can't go wrong with this kit, especially with all the options for exhaust pipes.

Loud Pipes / Tight Auto Tuner Installation March 2, 2017
Reviewer: Douglas Reeder from Edgewood, MD United States  
Installed baffles slash cut slip-on pipes with Stage 1 kit (included new air filter and auto tuner) on my 2009 HD V Rod Night Rod Special (VRSCDX). Installation of mufflers was pretty quick and easy, just minor finagling to line everything up. The auto tuner was tricky. A YouTube video helped a lot, but without the topless mod I don't run, it gets really tight above the battery with the air intake and the auto tuner.  Once installed everything worked well, and the auto tuner went into closed loop mood within two minutes.
    The pipes are loud and have the rumble the stock V Rod is sorely missing. They are louder than I expected. I wouldn't say they are two loud, but I've started weAring earplugs when I ride (which I should have always done anyway). First 50 miles or so experienced some backfires on deceleration but have now disappeared with a nice burble with mild decel pops. Overall I'm extremely pleased with the agreesive sound and performance, and recommend Tab Performance.
