Mid Controls and V&H

I was wondering if the Vance& Hines 2 into 1 competition series will fit on a D with mid controls. Have looked all over and sent 2emails to V&H and have not been able to find an answer to this question. Sorry if this sounds redundant and thanks for any answers.

Pretty sure they won't work. I thought about mids for my DX but general consensus is I would need new exhaust.

works just fine. I've got it on mine with the mids. be careful installing them though your brake peddle will scratch the pipe up. I actually had better luck installing the headers before attaching the cone. It's tougher to get the cone on all the way and the springs on, but much less scratches.

Off topic but how do you like those EBC floating rotors?

They're nice. I've put 26k on them without issue. Lasted almost 4 times longer than the stock ones did and still going. Stockers ended up warping causing major vibes while using the front break after only about 5k average. went through 3 pairs before getting these.

No problem. You will like it!...on a side note of the Fuel pak. I too have it. But be careful 3 of my friends have it as well and out of all 4 of us all of our bikes ran rich with the standard settings. So just keep an eye out for lots of black soot coming from the exhaust. There should be a very little build up and NONE blowing out on high revs. But the tech support there is very good and each of us gave them a call and explained and within about 15 minutes we had a custom map each and now they all run great. Have fun and enjoy your D! Best V Rod made!

I stand corrected! Thanks for the info, I may have to start looking into the mids again for mine. Sorry for the wrong info OP.

resurrecting an old post, but I have a 2007 vrscd, just put vance and hines competition 2-1 exhaust and my brake lever wont even go back on. is there a difference in the drop or vertical offset of the lever?
in the above photo it looks like the lever is basically level. mine appears to have a 2"+ drop built into it.

This is an old thread, but I wanted to see if I could get some magic words of wisdom and open my eyes to something I'm missing before I give up and go back to the stock exhaust. I've got a 2006 Night Rod with mid-controls and have had issues with the V & H Comp Series pipe since I got it six months ago. After making a custom bracket then to pull the muffler up and in to reduce the scraping on right-handers, I tolerated the occasional scrapes. But I've finally gotten tired of it and am going to pull it off soon. So, if anyone has some special mounting technique so I can actually lean the bike, I'd really appreciate it. Otherwise you'll be seeing it posted for sale (cheap) on this forum.

Thanks,
Ron

Hmmm... I already took the system off, but I'll definitely check into cutting the head pipe and moving the muffler forward. It sounds like if I can get the notch at the transition from collector to muffler to line up with the peg I can get it higher and tighter than I did with my custom bracket. I'm not sure I can use the V & H brackets because my frame section where they mount looks different than yours. I have studs there not holes. Thanks for the suggestion!
