Just bought a 2016 voyager ready to start the moding process. Looking at possibly vance an hines slash cuts but every place I check says not available for 2016. Any help would be appreciated.

That's because V & H hasn't fitted a bung for the 02 Sensor that Kawi added in 2015. If you get the ECU flashed the 02 Sensor is eliminated or else you'really basically stick with Cobra.

2015 has 02 sensor as well and after ECU flash the V&H slash cuts work fine. Just unplug 02 sensor behind right side cover.

Hi Missourian. How did your mods (reflash and pipes) go? I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on my 2015 VV, pipes and reflash. I hear nothing but good on the forum... Would love to hear your story as well! Cheers

How loud do you find the V & H? Can you still hear the stereo easily? Thanks in advance.
yes you can, to me the stock stereo sucks. the radio at 15-17 on the highway @ 80 can be heard but not clearly. I'm also running the stock windscreen, I've read that a taller shield helps hearing the radio at highway speeds.

I had the 4" Cobras but didn't like them or their sound and found it pretty loud. I know V & H are supposed to be louder but gonna try them after I debaffle the stockers.

The best thing you can do for the radio is add an amp and upgrade speakers. With or without pipes it washes out at anything over 70mph. Lots of threads on it and not all that hard to do.

I went with a clarion and 4 new pioneers. I can't go over 10 on volume control. I can easily hear it over the V&Hs.

I actually think the radio with the rear speakers sound pretty good although I listen to my iPod 95% of the time. But you're right about going over 70 MPH,
