Exhaust for 2009 V-Star 950

Hello I have a 2009 V-Star 950 and I was wondering if I put a exhaust is there anything else I would have to change. I know on carburated motors you have to re jet the carbs but but my 950 is fuel injected so I didn't know if there was something else i needed.

Bryan hello and welcome!

I can not answer your question, but, for cons, I'm sure the experts of the forum will!

All you should really need need is to have the onboard computer reset.
Most Yamaha dealers can do this for you. Or you can go the more expensive route by installing a fuel management system and new air intake.
It's up to you and your wallet.

Exhaust

Bryan,

My buddy has a 950, he installed a Cobra slip-on. Cost was $230. He installed it himself in under an hour no other changes. Seems if only a slip on is installed and no air box changes a controller is not needed. He also felt there was a slight increase in horsepower. So far no loss of mileage has been noticed.

I believe the reset is as simple as disconnecting the battery for a few minutes.

Dave

if you're replacing your pipes then you should add a fuel processor. i haven't heard of a dealership being able to to reset your onboard computer for full exhaust replacement
