Getting it out wasn't a problem, getting it back in was a little tricky, so I just snipped it off. I put the ziptie in my tool bag.

Is there a youtube video with the sound of these pipes? I'd sure like to hear them. For me, I like the look as much as the 2-in-1, maybe more.

Been looking for this answer for some time, but will these duals fit older VRSC's? Have an '04 that I'm converting into a bagger and need to change the exhaust and not too thrilled with the choices out there (2 into 1) - would love to go to true duals!! Presume that mounting would be a change but also presume that the exhaust connections would work.. Thanks for any help out there!!!

can't give an educated answer for mine didn't have the duals on when I got it but they aren't true duals, there is a cross over pipe, could maybe weld it closed and don't know the fitment for an 04 since they are based on a 240 set up which may make them set wide something to consider??? hope someone else has some better information

I want these on my R, but the mid controls ruin that idea. Might have to put them on the AW. I like a quiet exhaust.
Bring this to Mid West Thunder next month! Hope to see you there! Joe

Not sure if the Muscle exhaust will fit earlier (180 tire) models - although the original exhaust for the 2007 model (VRSCA) looks to have the same part numbers as earlier models the brackets are suffixed "07" so it looks as if they were changed to accommodate the wider tire ...

I think there is a difference in the lower triangle frame around the bottom of the gas tank on the earlier Vs. That is where the mount points are on the 08 and newer bikes for the exhaust cans. But we all know, anything can be fabricated, including the head pipes. You can get the whole F setup used for a super low price from an F'er that went to a 2-1. If I had an earlier V and really wanted to do it, I would get the F exhaust, and make it fit. Even if the head pipe connectors were different, I'd hack mine off and have them welded to the F headers. Then fab a bracket for the cans.

As I've previously said, the headers of a 2007 DX (with the 240 frame) have the same part numbers as earlier models, and the mufflers of a VRSCAW and a VRSCA are the same, so I reckon that all you would need to do is adapt the exhaust hangers to get a muscle system to fit on 180 tire models.

Hello,

Kind of off topic but where did you get your plate holder....I hate my Muscle's fold out holder. I have seen replacements but I do not want to spend a hundred bucks for a holder. Seems like everything is so expensive for the Rods. TIA

Did you have to do anything to the oil cooler hose that looks like it may be in the way of the front exhaust pipe where it exits the head ? It looks as if it may touch the pipe when the Muscle pipe is fitted.

I've been following your lead with the F pipe onto your VRSCDX

I have just purchased a complete F system from a fellow forum member and I have a few questions for you - if you don't mind.

1. The crossover pipe on the F seems to interfere with the oil cooling line on my AW - The F crossover has a small shield on it
but did you move your oil line or did you have to re-route the oil line?

I have a couple of bud's that are expert welders - could the crossover
holes be welded shut - if the above is the problem? This seems to be a last resort method.

2. I understand the dipstick issue that you have explained - Is oil filling a problem ?

3. I plan on cutting down the original mufflers by about 6" or so and re attaching the "tips" I'm presently running tab baffled with their tuner - my bike sounds great. How would you rate the sound of yours after the V&H?

Thank you for any help or guidance you can give me, I'm planning on starting next week as we have a couple of warm days to ride.
