2004 Silverado 1100 California Model exhaust modification
I just picked up a 2004 V star 1100 Silverado, California model and am looking to do some exhaust mods. The bike sounds like a sewing machine, is balky on the throttle response, and clearly isn't optimizing all the power it could be.
However, most of the aftermarket jet kits and pipes say they don't work on this particular model.
Do they really not work or are they just not in compliance with California emissions regulations?
I know later models began to incorporate a catalytic converter into the exhaust, so would post-2005 50 states models be much different?
What should I do?
Have thought about drilling out the baffles, installing a jet kit, putting some slip ons on or getting new pipes altogether but now really looking to spend more than 500 on the whole deal.
