Legendary Service... Ask Your Friends - Since 1969
Collaborations happen all the time in the music industry, but we are now seeing it more in the motorcycle world. Vance & Hines is teaming up with Roland Sands Design to bring us outstanding Harley exhaust systems and air cleaners. You get all of the performance that Vance & Hines is known for with the raw and cutting edge design elements of RSD. This winning combination is perfect for the guys who want their Harley to stand out from the rest. These exhaust systems and air cleaners intentionally shy away from the polished chrome appearance and strive for the stripped down feel.
The newest Harley exhaust system from Vance & Hines and RSD will give your bike an all new and aggressive look. This 2-into-1 exhaust system is lightweight and stripped down to only the necessary elements. Vance & Hines Harley exhausts are legendary for their performance and the legend continues with this new system. RSD’s design elements are brought to light not only with the aesthetic design, but also with the functionality. Your bike will benefit from the most ground clearance possible, because this system was created to be tucked up to the bike as tight as possible. With the added ground clearance, you have the option of utilizing the standard sporty mid controls or even adding rearsets for a more aggressive riding position. Because this exhaust is packed with fiberglass and stainless steel wool, it will hold up to high temperatures and won’t break down over time.
There are two different finishes so you can choose the look that fits your style. The Carbon Ops finish is perfect for the guy who wants a blacked-out bike. The exhaust is dipped in Black Ceramic to give it a Gloss Carbon and Satin Black finish. If you want an even more raw and stripped back feeling on your Harley, then the Works style is what you need. The all stainless steel construction and the welds remain exposed on the Works exhaust system for an industrial and minimalist feel. Both finishes have a Carbon Fiber End Cap to complete the look.
The amazing collaboration of RSD/Vance & Hines began with a trendsetting exhaust that left riders wanting more. The RSD Tracker 2-into-1 was first seen on the Drag Specialties ’07 Fatbook cover. With so much demand and overwhelming response, Vance & Hines decided to make it available for everyone. The black ceramic system was designed with nostalgic styling to give your Harley that old school tracker look. The matte black finish is offset by the carefully detailed and drilled chrome heat shields. The shields give the Harley exhaust system a sleek and minimalistic look and feel. To add just the right amount of bling, the pipes are finished off with a chrome billet drilled exhaust tip with the RSD logo stamp.
To get the most out of your new Vance & Hines Harley exhaust, you will need the enhanced airflow that the RSD air cleaner can provide. The slant design of this air filter will give you more knee clearance so you can attack the corners without it being in your way. The Vance & Hines designed backing plate combined with a carbon fiber ergo trimmed K&N filter element creates industry-leading filtration that cannot be matched. The carbon fiber body of the cleaner makes it incredibly light and you will only notice it because of its stunning design.
