INSTALLED ON A VTX 1800 2003 HONDA. AFTER CALLING BACK ON INSTALLTION AND TOLD THAT THEY ARE HARD TO INSTALL. I GOT MY TWO SONS TO HELP AND SPREAD THE TWO HEADER PIPES APART TO GET THEM TO GO ONTO THE HEAD. WILL NOT BUY V&H PIPES AGAIN. NEED TO HAVE A COUPLER ON FRONT HEADER PIPE WOULD HELP VERY MUCH. BUT AFTER FIGHTING TO GET INSTALLED I LIKE THE SOUND AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PIPES
WOW! Great packaging, perfect fitment and wonderful sound and performance!
The Vance and Hines pipes are awesome. They installed great and have an awesome sound. I have had alot of compliments on how good the sound is. I'm very happy with my selection.
The V&H Big Shots make my '06 VTX 1300c sound like one bad SOB! Pair them with a hypercharger (or PRO-R Hypercharger like I did) and your adding some serious performance to your bike! You will love the deep throaty sound of these high quality pipes.
Great sound...don't need the quiet baffles. Nice tone when cruising, and a nice bark when accelerating! Paired with the Kury Pro-R Hypercharger, the bike is crazy!
All I can say is WOW!!!!! The look and sound is amazing compared to factory. Just putting the exhaust on was a jump in the performance of the cycle. That was without jetting it. After jetting, it was even more. Cannot wait to purchase the Kuryakyn Pro-R Hypercharger kit for it. Awesome
The look and sound of this set of pipes is great
These are very nice pipes. Nice rumble with the quiet baffles. Not too bothersome to the neighbors.
I appreciate the performance gains these pipes have provided. A bit on the loud side when accelerating. A great deep tone when cruising. Installation was not as smooth as the directions made it seem. Had to wrestle them for proper seating on the motor head. I wish I had ordered the quiet baffle at the same time to reduce the high end by 3 dbs or so. That would be perfect for my riding style and needs.
All I can say is wow what a difference. Great pipes!
Great Sound and fitment
If you do not want loud pipes, dont order these pipes. i think they are freaking awesome and loud. Sleek styling and easy fit. Took less than one hour to install.
These pipes sound great and the install was easy. They took my bike from a good ride to a grea ride!
went on easy and sound great!
went on easy and sound great!
Sound great!! And install was very easy!!
Just got pipes installed. When I picked bike up from the shop, cranked it up, my facial expression was like dam! Revved her up a lil, and I was like o yea, I graduated. Pipe gives bike a nice low end idling growl. When i drove off the lot, the pipes started talk to me. The more I hit the throttled, the louder they spoke. Sounds really good. Loud and aggresive, but not aggravating. I definitely feel the difference in performance. Of course I got the dyno jet kit, k&n air filter, and dyno-tuned with pipe install, but throttle response is way better, and bike response is more immediate. Pick up has marginally increased. Opened bike up to 110 mpg, and she still sounds nasty. Sounds great when down shifting or accelerating. She maintains a steady bassy, low-toned sound when holding steady around 30-50 mph. I definitely recommend these pipes! MONEY WELL SPENT!!
Amazing sound. Improved mpg by 6
Love these pipes!!!!
I have invested a lot of money in making my dream machine.I also enjoy a little talk with the "SERVICE TECS' so i do not have a lot of problems with installation problems. I have just lived long enough to ask for advice first.
Great sound, Great performance, little better quality control needed.
These pipes look great, and sound good too, they are pretty loud with the baffles in, taking them out does not make much difference. My biggest problem with these was the fit, the one piece design makes them a real pain to stretch over the ports, it took nearly all my strength, an I am a big guy ! The worst was still to come though, the mounting bolt holes on the pipes at the rear mount were a good 3/8" out, as the mounting is part of the pipes, and chrome, you cannot modify this without destroying the chrome, so I had to remove the Honda mounting bracket, and re-drill it to suit. With a bit of filling and the pipes off and on three times I got it to fit well - BUT WHY IS THIS NECESSARY ! Not what I expected from a long established company like Vance and Hines. If you choose these pipes dont expect a 20 minute bolt on fit like it should be !
These pipes look great on the bike, but they are TOUGH to install. It takes two strong men to mount this one piece system. Be prepared to alter the mountaing plate at the rear wheel. Also we had to remove the heat shield from the rear port/upper exhaust pipe to mount to ports. Now that I'm done, its worth it.
I really like the pipes. All the reviews I read about hard to put on are true and I needed 2 people and patience, be sure and remove right lower controls. I would recommend the quiet baffles and wrap, I am getting a little rattle from the back end. Altogether love the pipes and service. The above mentioned issues are things to be expected when customizing.
