You guys selling things you may have more luck if you post the items in the Classifieds or at least try Posting it in a New Thread instead of reviving an ancient one

Kind of experimental game for me too, as no one else ever reported about it. But damn... That makes a difference! Sounds like a more powerful bike... I am a little afraid that it is too loud, but I am really happy
How's that exan working out for you? (if you still have it?) Was looking at it in comparison to a delkevic or an arrow.

The cheap way

I ordered a M4 slip on exhaust and cut the stock muffler off. This will require that you weld the slip on adapter to the stock pipe. you can hear examples of this mod on youtube. I did the whole thing for $54 dollars. I also added a Boosterplug for fuel management that was $160. It made a huge difference over stock and I still get 50 mpg.

Ride safe out there

Where did you find the M4 exhaust so cheap?

Hey Texasvs,

That sounds like a great idea. Do you have any pictures of the bike with the exhaust on. Where you cut and welded and how you managed with the springs attachments?

I was all but ready to go for a Delkevic but this mod is a brilliant solution. I'd have to take the exhaust somewhere to do the welding but that'll still only cost a fraction of a Delk.

Cheers. Tom.

I recently pulled my exhaust off, cut the giant, heavy, ugly muffler off, then welded a small exhaust pipe at a slight angle. Basically, I made it so my Vulcan can now fit universal slip on exhaust cans. I got a cheapy one on ebay that actually sounds surprisingly good, weighs nothing, and isn't annoyingly loud. It backfires a bit, but I changed the baffle and the problem went away. I think my Booster Plug helps with that too, from what I've read. I wrapped the pipes, including the ugly Y pipe. Sprayed the wrap with high temp silicone spray, and put it all back on the bike! The whole project cost least than $50. It cut about 20 pounds from the bike, makes a louder/more motorcycy sounding, and, in my opinion, looks much better!
