Hi Magneto,

Seems like SFA Aussie people on here are active.
I'm really struggling to find people who actually want to go for a ride round Brisbane on a weekend. Good luck in SA, I would love to get down there some day ..... what is the best time of year to ride?

Qld is best right now and spring stable weather and not too hot. Winter is also good but you have to stay near the coast or its too damn cold ... well it is for me and I grew up in the snowy mountains.

Ausie riders

Hello to Vulcan riders, Im wondering if anyone can help with my after market exhaust question. I want to change my exhuast with a pair of slip ons ,my dealer has told me that the USA slip ons do not fit our bikes here, brackets O2 sensor needs to be drilled and installed etc , sound like sh.. and they just want me to spend the extra dollars with them. I can get them to install some Vance & Hines bit I wanted to go either the Cobra Tri oval or Scalloped tip. Any help would be greatly appreciated , I also noticed some other Vulcan riders here in the south east, would be good to catch up for a ride.

Cheers

I bought a set of Cobra slip ons, discounted due to being shop soiled, nothing a polish did not fix, came through no worries, its my third OS purchase of exhausts over the years, never had any issues with them.

As for the O2 sensor it is further up on the header pipes so the slip ons have no effect on them working at all.

The brackets are made exactly to fit the 1700. the dealer is talking BS. he may have had problems with other aftermarket pipes, but I can tell you the 4 inch Cobra slip ons with the scalloped tips fit fine.

Price? $440.00 AU delivered.

I will say the Cobra's are loud, I packed mine with a material I found on the web to quieten them down a bit.

go for it. they are a snap to fit.:D

The pipes on my 800 are Ebay imports from the states .. @350.00 delivered and no issues with customs or anyone else... as long as the declared amount is less than $1000 aussie on your shipment you should have no problems .. can't help you on the fit with slip ons ... BUT... there is bugger all difference between Europe/USA/Aussie delivered bikes mate ... reckon your dealer is pullin' your big one ..

Cheers

G'day Cobber ! Good to see another Aussie on the Vulcan site :) What bit of Oz you from ? I've recently bought a Vulcan & am very happy with it so far, will be looking to buy a back rest for my manager & a rack soon, then a couple of saddle bags to Finnish her off :)

G'day From WA

G'day to all the Aussies out there ! Have any of you registered for the black dog ride this year ? Registration closes at midnight tonight . My wife and I are going. Be great to talk with all the other Vulcan riders there, 2000 bikes from all over OZ will be heading to Alice springs for the big Fundraiser event. It's very good value for a very good cause. Hope to see you there :)

Well this a turn up for the books. It looks like us Aussies are everywhere. I work most weekends so rides around my part of the world happen when I get some spare time. Not many V2K's around here though. I have never been to the rock but the Ulysses AGM is there in 2014 so who knows. If anyone is going to Imbil this year I will be with another bunch of Kawasaki nuts.

Cheers and Beers

Bob
