dual exhaust on a V2k anyone?

OK dont flame me for asking this, just thinking out aloud here, i have seen that few people have put dual exhausts (one on either side of the bike) on roadstars with fish tails. Not that i would do that to my bike currently. But when she gets old and is begging for some customizing, I was thinking about going that route. Any one done this yet to a V2K?

I have not seen nor heard of anyone doing this. It would be a neat idea. I thought about that and going with hard bag and making the Nomad Kaw should have made . I don't see how it could be possible with out compromising ground clearance. I have seen pictures of it being done with a trike kit but that is a complete different situation.

while i am throwing out ideas, how about a springer front end with fat tires? i know we would be going technologically backwards, but like i said before, it wouldnt be something i would do to the bike currently..

By the time your bike is old & needs a fluff & buff, You too will be needing some relief, a Springer front end will NOT give you any arthritis relief whatsoever.
I have a springer on my trike & it jarrs the hell outta my old elbows & shoulders, they make look good , but believe me, they transfer a LOT of the road surface imperfections directly to your joints.

ive spent hours staring at my 2000 wondering the same thing. i dont see how the pipes could be run without moving some things around. anything is possible, but it looks beyond my limited technical abilities. i think she would look great with dual fishtails

Dual FIsh tails ;( YUCK OH say it aint so !!
Sorry, just being a snot, to each their own, I just happen to DISPISE those !!!
I have dual DIY 3.5" curved out on my 04 , which I think look decent but they DO set off a lot of car alarms!! & they arent THAT loud either, but they have a VERY VERY DEEP tone & resonance & I think its more the frequency of the sound than the volume, that fires off the alarms . LOL its real fun driving by a car dealership LOL, especially high end , like a Mercedes/BMW, etc dealerships LMAO
Yeah, I know,Sometimes , I'm just a prick LOL
