Hey Guys, this thread is for “Venture & Eluder” so WHY are we getting V-Star, Vulcan, etc??
Please put these convos in the appropriate thread.
If it has to do with Venture & Eluder then it belongs here.
I don't doubt that the SV sounds different than a v-star or a vulcan, but
- It was a more generic question about the exhaust
- Nobody's had actually posted a useful response specific to the SV, or given any response in a week
- there's some level of expectation that can be derived from the results others have had with big V-Twins, regardless of make/model
- in my case, I don't have the exact bike to compare, but I can at least share my experience both with drilling out baffles and slip-ons
I'm not here to be a troll. I'm here like I hope everyone else is to share my love of being on two wheels and share my experiences whatever they might be, and hopefully stay mostly on topic.
That said, Chief, you're exactly right. It sounds (no pun intended) that your stock pipes did exactly like my V&H pipes over a few thousand miles and got louder. Unless the OP is looking for really loud, I'd agree and say stick with stock for a few more thousand miles before making a decision.
Take care and keep the shiny side up
