    Good sound for a newbie iron 883

    Hi there, just bought my first harley...a sportster iron 883, i was just wondering what peoples thoughts were on what slip ons to get as i don't really want to go drilling into my stock exhausts...or should i?? Just looking for the best sound really and cant afford a full exhaust system at the minute!

    Cheers

    Welcome to the forum fae Fife. I've got a 16 iron, that I've kept in a standard tune as it suits me. I found when I had loaners from the dealer it was too loud to be practical. (Curtailed my early morning/ middle of the night rides)
    FTW )

    Ok Gill,

    Welcome to the forum from a 2011 Iron owner.

    If you're looking for a quality pair of black mufflers at under £200, see my reply in the 'Want to Buy' section of this forum about Wyatt Gatling slip-on mufflers.

    You didn't mention your bikes year, the 2009 to 2013 Iron has a different exhaust to the 2014 to 2018 Iron, this was done to accommodate the ABS braking system introduced for the 2014 model year.

    I have a pair of black Python 3 mufflers, they're about £320 now, they give a good low rumble.

    Here's an old photo of my Iron wearing the Python 3 mufflers.

    Have a look at various slip-on mufflers on YouTube and decide which you like the sound of.

    Don't forget, if you just change your mufflers and keep the stock air filter, you don't have to alter the fuelling.

    Hope that's helped you.

    Ok guys thanks for that, it's a 2017 883 i have by the way! Totally know what you're saying about the noise but it's not too much of an issue where i am. Those cobra slip ons look good, might see if i can stretch to buying something like that, if not the wyatt gatling ones would be worth a try for the price! I'm also wanting to get some forward controls, any advice on any suppliers or brands??
    Any help appreciated

    Cheers

    Gill

    Hello Gill,

    If you're after a budget pair of forward controls, these are available on the Aliexpress website for £75.64. To keep the cost to a minimum, you need to use your stock foot pegs and gear shift lever. They are finished in gloss black, and fit 2014 to 2018 model year Sportster's.

    Thanks Gill,

    Another useful website for aftermarket H-D parts is www.banggood.com.uk

    I have bought from both aliexpress and banggood and I've never been disappointed with my purchases.

    Hope you find what you're looking for.
