i installed a set of v&h slipons on my vaquero and have alot of popping on decel. i have read that plugging the hose on the right side airbox helps and even changing the baffles helps. my questions are
1) how do i remove the baffles from the v&h slipons?
2) will a set of big city thunder baffles help?
3) has anyone tried the bct baffles in v&h slipons?
thanks for the help/advice guys.

Other than the decel popping how does it sound? Any effect on hearing the music at crusing speeds?

Vance And Hines Slipons Have Two allen head Screws on the bottom of each muffler You remove these pull Baffle out. Baffle Will be wrapped with pack . I installed a Power commander 5 on mine with the slip ons i no others have gone with out .I get a little pop on decel not much though mainly when i get on it and backoff unspent gas has to go somewhere .

carl i removed the 2 allen screws but mine would not come out. now i was only pulling on them with my fingers because i didnt want to scratch them with pliers. i will remove the 2 screws again and tape up the ends and try being for forceful with some pliers. isnt there a way to hook them from inside and slip them out?

I Put a pair of Long nose pliers inside and grabed one of the baffle ribs took a little wiggling then it came out .I did not want to scratch the pipe either boy they are loud with no baffles at all :eek:.Kinda a trick to put back in they need to line up back and front .

The AVC control on the radio has a big effect on how you hear the radio at all times, but especially on the highway. I have mine set at 3 and find it works well for me. The factory setting is 1.
