  • Vance and Hines any good?

    Does anyone have a V&H on their kat and did they have to re-jet the carbs? I'm hoping to not have to do that.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Don't have one on my Kat but I had one on an FJ1200. It did not "require" rejetting. It did "benefit" from a "jet kit".

      I have the SS2R slip-on for my 06 750 and love the sound and fit.

      Rejetting is not required but I would advise to do it as it will perform much better.

        besides buying the jet kit, (about $90 or so), how much does it cost to have it put in? i had a 99 GS500E, i bough a V&H full system and a jet kit. I put both of them on myself but i screwed up putting in the jet kit, and i don't want to risk it again, especially since i just got the Kat a week ago.

          Get a Ivan's Jet kit and just install as he suggests and you won't need to fiddle at all.

                  No, you don't NEED to rejet... I've got the SS2R, too. Like it a lot. But, a stage-1 and timing advance is about the best $200 you'll spend on a bike with a full exhaust.

                      V&H sound great, I just wish their cans were a little more...aesthetically pleasing...

                              Are you talking Vance and Hines full exhaust? and what model is it? (the pipe)

                              Did u put in the jet kit in yourself?
