PostSubject: Vance and Hines exhaust   Sat Mar 23, 2013 10:12 pm

My bike is new (to me) and I went riding with a buddy who has a Honda 750 with Cobra pipes. I LOVE Betty (Ma bike) but I was definitely a little envious of his bikes sound. I did some youtube searching for exhaust (actually that's how I discovered this board) and decided on Vance and Hines. I pulled the trigger on Vance & Hines Twin Slash Staggered Full Exhaust Chrome 18293 and ready to start the install. I was wondering if there are any specific things I should look for or be careful of when doing it. Also, it sounds like it would be much easier with a second set of hands....should I do this solo or enlist a buddy to help?

Always good to have a buddy on hand as the stock pipes are reasonably heavy but I changed my pipes on my own and found it very easy to do so. If a spare pair of hands are available then use them but you really do not need them.

So I bought the new exhaust from eBay (Vance & Hines Twin Slash Staggered Full Exhaust Chrome 18293) and was fixin to install it this weekend, but it was brought to my attention that I might need to purchase a separate unit (fuel pack) to adjust the fuel injection system to make the bike (2009 C50T) run well. Does anyone know if this is a fact? Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Only if you upgrade the air filter to a high flow such as a K&N. If you do not touch the air filter and that is left as stock, no need to worry about a fuel injection module.

Thanks Mr I. Talked to a buddy on the ship who rides sports bikes, and that makes perfect sense to him too.

Nice pipes Michael as Mr Intruder says, there's no problems running V&H pipes without the need for a fuel processor, I ran mine with an aftermarket pipe without issue and so have many others, Enjoy the sound my friend, you'll love it.

Got er done, and I LOVE it. http://youtu.be/GUkve8UAfxU The sound is MUCH better. I now wish I would have done a video of it going down the road before and after!! It she does seem to idle lower, and I now get "pops" when I let off of the gas.....any idea why that might be?

The popping you can hear has more than likely always been there but with baffles you could hardly hear it, I sure that was the case with mine. When I first had my Vance and Hines cruizers on I rode it around with no adjustments done for a while and it was fine, then I had a powercommder and a K and N air filter which made a massive differance, it smoothed the whole runnlng of the engine out and almost all the popping which is more like a rumbling now than popping.
As for the idle speed I think that might be something to do with the back pressure change not too sure on that, someone will tell you what has caused it.

Michael it is perfectly normal & you can pretty much eliminate the popping if you want to, I actually like it to pop. Either de-pairing the the bike (removing the PAIR valve) or blocking one of the breather tubes will stop the air being injected and igniting the un-burnt fuel in the header pipe that is causing the popping that you are hearing.

My VZ800 with V & H pipes does quite a bit of popping depending on various factors (bike has a mind of its own in this department). However, I like the popping and burbling... kinda sounds sinister.

I am curious as to how the other versions of the VZ800 engine sound. I understand that the US version has a 45* off-set dual pin crank and other European countries have a 75* off-set dual pin crank. This would definitely effect the exhaust note.
