Hey Wind Walker, my name is Scott and I'm new here on this forum, and I'm trying to learn about potential upgrades for a stock '06 VRSCA I bought a couple weeks ago. I've been looking at the Danmoto 2-1 as it seems like a great deal and one of just a few options out there for '06 VRSCAs.

Anyway, I've been trying to understand how the various fuel/air manager systems required for aftermarket exhausts work, and it seems like the Cobra Power Pro Black is possibly one of the easiest to set up for a newby like myself. As I understand it, the installation involves connecting the unit to the fuel injectors, which are then monitored and adjusted for optimum performance without the need for finding and loading specific fuel control algorithms, is that correct? In other words the most difficult part is simply installing the hardware on the bike, has that been your experience with this unit?

Thanks for any help you can provide here, I'm looking forward to making my bike sound more like a Harley should sound sometime soon.

Oooof. 'Dems fighting words around here. You done got yourself a real Harley. What you'd like to do is make it sound more like an aircooled v-twin.

You're right, my apologies to all here, I made an edit to read what I should've written, '...more like a Harley should sound.'

Anyway, I do love the V Rod, the modern technologies they put into it along with a decent size motor make it one of Harley's best ever in my opinion, it's a shame that they have stopped building it now.

And once upon a time, I did have a '78 Sportster with drag pipes and it had a way different sound than my stock V Rod, so I really want to do something to get more sound out of this bike, not sure about the full drag pipe sound of the Sportster, but louder anyway.

No apologies needed. I'm a Vrod noob myself and certainly not the guy to bust balls (seemingly very few guys like that on this forum anyway). Having read deeply here on this topic, the options are neigh infinite. Which stock exhaust do you have? You can get some real value for certain well-found SE parts and stock exhausts on eBay and the Danmoto is relatively inexpensive (Amazon has it for cryin' out loud). However, you might consider drilling some holes:

https://www.1130cc.com/forums/showth...highlight=VMOD

It has the advantage of being even more inexpensive, and if you start with small holes, you can always enlarge for more sound.

After that, there's the vmod, which is drilling out the factory baffles:https://www.1130cc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11787

You just need to find the intersection between your individual taste, desire for looks and budget. I only chime in because you mentioned sound as the only real factor and the Danmoto seems to be the most budget minded option. Drillbits are even more inexpensive.

kobbs,

I'm pretty sure the bike has just the stock exhaust, not the Screaming Eagle, so I may try taking the drill to it and see how it sounds after that. I've read through a good part of that thread already, and it seems like a very easy option to try.

I think the vmod would be a bit louder than I'm after, I really just want something that is tolerable to the neighbors while putting through my quiet neighborhood, but will allow cars to hear me if I crack the throttle a bit. The Danmoto setup may be louder than I prefer from some of the sound clips I've listened to? I'm still doing some research, but the drill bit option seems pretty simple given that it can be done without a tuner according to what I've read so far. Thanks for the reply, I'll figure it out soon.

Danmoto Feul Map

@Moler and @storx
Do either of you have the fuel map you could share with me for a muscle with Danmoto set up?

I have an 1130 and I modified my baffle. But I can look to see if I can find the original map that came from Fuel Moto when I bought the PV.
