Whats cooler white or black wraps on V9 classic?

hey guys.....need your opinion

having a hard time to deciding what looks nice on my 12' classic 900B

white wraps match the white walls

but the black wraps match everything else dark on the bike, like frame, forks etc. Fenders are grey....

any links to pics on the site that can show black and white wraps on a classic?

also, whats the best wrap to use, any links?Thanks

What are these Wraps of which you speak?

Gone are the days we stop to decide where we should go, we just ride.

Are you talking about the exahust wrap ? If so why don't you make a mock up wrap with paper or thin cardboard in both colors and see which one looks better

Exhaust pipe wraps, see link below, to give you a better idea.




I have to think a forum this large, you would see a 900 Classic with diff. color wraps, esp. if it were converted
to a bobber, via a kit. BTW, I googled, V900 exhaust pipe wraps, and hardly any photos came up, only ones came up were for harleys......shux

anyway, I would only wrap the pipes halfway anyway b/c the stock pipes are not equal circumference and get much wider towards the muffler.

Thanks for your cardboard mockup idea, but its not the same thing as seeing the wraps on by themselves.
Anyone else have any ideas?

take a photo of the exhaust side and use a paint programme in your computer to even test pink!

another good idea, you mean an adobe photo edit shop?
still not the same as seeing actual wraps on it, good idea tho.......

looks like i have to buy two sets of wraps (black/white) and do it myself............

again, just surprised this forum or google dont have any photos, guess ill be the 1st hehehe

You didnt google to hard, if you google Vulcan 900 bobber you get all kinds of pictures with wrapped exhaust in black or white.

You probably arent finding any pictures of stock exhaust wrapped because most people who bob their bikes put different pipes on and wrap those

Thanks guys and mex.62, I appreciate the link.
Unfortunately, the pipes from the bobbers weren't the same style as stock exhaust v9 classic's go but it was still helpful

Quick ques. how much HP do you actually get from fiberglass wraps, what other benefits?

see link below, this is the color/tank same as mine with the WWalls, so i wish it had black or white wraps on it and/or at least the stock exhaust, so I can get a better idea......

Ok, now you've lost me. Are you still talking about the black or white wraps from your original post, or are you now asking about fiberglass baffles in the muffler?

If you're talking baffles, you won't get any noticeable power increase by changing them out unless you also replace the air filter set up with big air. Once you do that you'll also have to add a fuel controller to keep your air/fuel mix balanced. Once that's done you'll have more power but there's a lot of discussion on how much. Try searching the forum for Big Three Mods. There's been a lot of discussion on this topic.
