The stock pipes were easy to get off
The V&H pipes were a perfect fit.
The V&H pipes DO NOT have a collar (as do the stock pipes) that helps seal the pipe to the head pipe. So, some leakage...
If you want to mod the pipes...
Take off the two hex bolts that hold the baffle to the muffler.
Note there are two holes above the baffle that you can use to yank the baffles out.. if they are stuck
Don't use pliers or vise grips, you will scratch the chrome - use a slide hammer ($20) or use a hook to pulll the baffles if they are stuck. (They will most likely be stuck at the front end; not the back)
I removed the fiberglass packing around the baffle to make it louder.
Save the packing if you want to ever replace it.
The original fiberglass packing is held on with tape (that will melt)
If you want to replace the packing later, use a thin copper wire to secure the packing around the baffle.
My bike runs fine (with packing, without packing, no baffles) without any other changes.
That is, no changes to air cleaner, or any other fuel management.
(The V&H box will try to tell you that you need fuel management. If all you want is a louder bike, none of that is necessary - you don't need to change anything other than the pipes to V&H)
All in all.. happy
They are exactly what I was hoping for. Not too loud at a steady speed but ample rumble on acceleration to let others know you are there. My wife likes them since she can still hear the stereo at highway speeds.
Good service and a great price = return customer.
