  1. V Star
    So I got a "new to me" 950 Tourer earlier this month and I'm in love with it. Upgraded from a 2002 Vulcan 500 which had practically zero aftermarket options so I'm wicked excited to add some upgrades and make this bike my own. I'm not really interested in doing a whole exhaust system but I am...
  2. V Star
    Hi All. I caught a great deal on a 2004 VStar 650 that's had several mods done including a pod kit intake (with stock airbox delete), rejeting (#130 jets), and custom drag/straight pipes (cut extremely short so the exhaust outlet is essentially where the two pipes meet). Love the bike so far...
  3. Exhaust
    Hi Everyone, Have a 2000 XVS650A. Had missed one thing when bought it - the exhaust cross link tube was cut and sealed by some previous owner. I have no idea what effect this brings to my bike. First season it was running average, but it is my first bike, so have no experience. But next...
  4. Stratoliner & Roadliner
    Long story short, the tip of my exhaust broke off 🤷‍♂️ I was riding one day and as I turned I heard metal scraping. Thought to myself, I never dip low, got to my destination and walked around the bike and noticed (picture 1) Didn't know what to do really. The sound was a tad different but...
  5. V Star
    Hey guys, greetings from Australia. I’ve been all over the net recently attempting to find jet sizes for the setup I’m going to run. I have recently bought a 2018 650 and am going to install some V&H Short shots. At this stage I’m not really looking at swapping the intake. I’ve done a lot of...
  6. Motorcycle Modifications
    So I have the baffles removed in my slip on mufflers. I added lolipops to help with back-pressure. I used an eye bolt with a nut/ bolt washer through the hole. I am wondering if I should increase the diameter of the washer. Is there an optimal percentage of the pipe to block to make lollipops...
  7. V Star
    So, I'm considering swapping my stock exhaust for a Vance and Hines Shortshots Staggered Exhaust (while pairing with a re-jet and a GAK). One of the things I've read is that since the V&H is free-flowing, there is a loss of low-end torque. How does this work, especially considering that my '07...
  8. Exhaust
    My wife and I just picked up a 1972 CB175 K6, which will be her learner bike. It's in pretty solid original condition, about 4600 miles, and runs well. We are struggling with just one issue right now: exhaust. The previous owner cut off the rusted stock mufflers and added JC Whitney slip-ons...
  9. Carb and Fuel
    While under a load my bike seems to idle a little bit rough. Also while riding there are moments where I get like a surge of power like in suddenly has all the power in the world. And then it goes away. Not quite sure what to check to correct this issue is it vacuum, spark or fuel? Maybe I need...
  10. Stratoliner & Roadliner
    So, I'm preparing to install my Freedom Performance Dual Exhaust on my 2007 Stratoliner and I have a question about the plastic belt drive cover. The instructions say that the plastic belt drive cover needs to be cut out about 2 inches long and .3/4 inches high. The picture of the plastic...
  11. Wanted Items
    I've decided to try a set of stock headers and mufflers on my 2004 Vstar 650 Custom. I have a nice set of Vance & Hines Short Shots on it right now. They're not awfully loud, but the neighbors don't like them. I'm also wondering if the backfiring on deceleration, might be partially due to the...
  12. Stryker
    I recently purchased a cobra fuel processor for my 12 Stryker 1300, I already have a cobra intake with the high flow K&N intake, I added Pacific Coast Star drag pipes/headers, can anyone suggest what settings I need to dial in on the 3 pots in the fuel processor
