    FX HO - DIY Velocity Stack, any problem using zip-ties ?

    removed filter/wire mesh from OEM velocity stacks and put it back together using zip-ties, do you see any problem with this ? any heat coming through stacks ?

    Thanks Mike, I was more worried about one of the zip-ties braking lose due to heat and somehow make it into the throttle body.

    I did the same to my 03FX140, over 40hrs ago, no issues. Did you see a noticeable difference in power/speed after you installed the FF exhaust on your 08FXHO?

    It came with it so i can't say for sure but in about two weeks i can test the two as I'm not planning to install FF exhaust on my cruiser yet.

    I have an 08 with both the velcity stacks (riva, pretty blue ones) and the FF exhaust. The stacks made a noticeable high end acceleration difference from roughly 50 mph on up. The FF exhaust, not so much. I had to put the stock stuff on for a warranty issue way back when and when I reinstalled the stacks I noticed the difference. When I put the FF exhaust back on with the stacks didn't really notice a change other than the noise. Not bad but much louder if you are behind the ski.
