Hi Matt, All the V&H Pipes for VL800's will physically fit your bike, It just depends on if the bike is fuel injected or has carbs?

I have V&H Cruisers fitted & love them. Some times I run them stock, some times I run them with quiet baffles installed, depends what mood I'm in. Great exhausts anyway, love them.
I do not know what codes you are talking of?


As mentioned by Sim, some 55 could be left over carb bikes. If yours is a true 55, then it will be fuel injected. If it's a carbed bike, just fit them, if it is fuel injected, do the following.


If you want to be very very very kind to the planet, then have the bosses & CO2 sensor fitted. This will require a single holes drilled in to one of the pipes on your year. have the boss welded to it & fit the CO2 sensor. The CO2 sensor is the thing you have sticking out of your top stock pipe with a lead coming from it.
If you don't want to save the planet from a minute amount of extra emission coming from the bike then:
Fit the pipes & open the side cover &simply cut wire #23 and ride the bike like you stole it. Simples.

Great help cheers guys! The bike was registered 29/10/05 but I suppose I could have been sat waiting to be registered! So even though mine is a volusia it doesn't matter if I get one for a standard 800 or specific to it?
I'm handy with a welder so I can fit the lambda boss :)
The baffles come with them or is that an extra you bought Mr Intruder?

I bought the extra quiet baffles.
If your bike has a wire coming from the top exhaust it's a fuel injected model.

M50 & C50 are just the American names for M800 & VL/C800, they work in Cubic Inches (50) as we work in Cubic Centimeters (800) Same bikes just different numbers.

You can get a pair valve blanking kit from ( HERE ) can't see the point in it myself. I like the gurgling on deceleration.

Does seem like a lot of work for very little result, I know depending on the setup the pipes can gurgle pop or bang on deceleration but I am sure there aint any performance result from doing it

None, just what one wants to hear or not. A very common mod, what suits one doesn't always suit the other & vice versa.

Hi Matt

Just seen your other post about PAIR valve removal.

There are two reasons (that I know of) for removal - one is aesthetic, some people like to see "naked jugs", rather than what looks like a mimi air filter cover.  The other (which seems to affect carb versions) is that fitting an after-market exhaust can bugger up the running if not set-up correctly.  This explains all the ins & outs - Moccs Place.  When I first had mine, the previous owner had fitted Highway Hawks.  It ran like a pig & sounded awful on over-run - I love a nice bit of "pop" on over-run, but this was way too much.  Removed 'em & the difference was amazing - cured the over-run completely & improved the running no-end. 

Personally, I prefer the clean barrels look - but that is purely a matter of taste

You could keep the pair valve cover and put a fuse box behind it, or a hidden switch for something.
