S&S’ 50-state legal exhaust system for touring models features proprietary Cat design
S&S Cycle’s new ‘El Dorado’ performance exhaust system is a 50-state legal MK 45 muffler/header package for 2009-’16 Harley touring models that ships complete with optimized and matched Power Tune headers and a set of 4.5” MK45 mufflers fitted with the latest S&S designed high flow Cat technology.
Commenting on the new technology, S&S Marketing Director David Zemla said that “much like the automotive industry years back, high flow catalysts have finally made their way onto the V-twin market. Our in-house developed catalytic converter meets the motorcycle requirements for a design that is discrete enough to be designed into great looking pipes without compromising on its emissions performance or building up excessive heat.
“By placing the Cat in the muffler, it is insulated and kept away from the rider’s legs, while maintaining its hi-flow and emissions reducing characteristics. Backed by a California Air Resources Board ‘Executive Order’ (EO# K-010), it “combines clean styling and an authoritative note with increased torque and horsepower.”
The ‘El Dorado’ is a bolt-on install that doesn’t require tuning. It is available for ‘09-’16 touring models in show quality chrome or black ceramic finish with choice of S&S ‘Tracer’ or ‘Thruster’ style exhaust tips. M-8 applications are due for release very soon.
