Hi - I have an 06 D
I plan to do the V-MOD 1 (Inner Baffles Removed)|
I have a K&N AF - may go topless.
Power Commander III.
Good bang for your Buck I believe,
If you like the looks of the Stocks Mufflers, all the better.

Dyno Jet:
Stock MAP for it Listed as 809-001
809-020 Main St Motorcycles Modified Stock Mufflers,
I read Is a good match for For Stock ECM, V-MOD 1 K&N AF, Topless,

Waddya think?

I have the same bike and setup--2006 Night Rod with VMod, Power Commander and Main Street Cycles downloaded map from the DynoJet website. I absolutely love it. Best sounding exhaust and absolutely free, except for an hour of your time and effort.
Here's my video:

Sounds Nice - Nice Bike.
Thx for sharing your knowledge.

You using a PC3 or PC5?
Topless? Where did you put your IAT sensor thing?

I plan on doing VMOD1 - So I looked for an extra set of Stock Mufflers.
Got a Pair off a 06 R - Same Parts.
Just got them, in great shape.
Paid $60 shipped the, shipping was 30....
Deal of the year I'd say.

Power Commander 3.
Half topless...I pulled out the snorkel and did the cheese grater on the front half of the box with my hole saw. That way I get better airflow, and keep the lid intact. Theory is to direct higher airflow from the front, and not get alot of heat coming in from below via the engine. So the sensor is still in the same spot.

Well it's dark out and raining, so i can't get to it right now...but I pulled this from the Buell forum where I got the idea.
I basically just used bigger holes and only did the front half.

Not that year or model matters really, the engines are all basically the same... I have a 08 D (1250 cc) with full thunder header. Very loud, great power, very hot. I finally wrapped it under the heat shields.

I also have wife’s 07 D (1130 cc) which had a CFR slip on. Those were the raciest slip you could buy when they came out. Also loud but great power at top end.

I took CFR off due to decibels and the wife wasn’t in high rpm range anyway. The stock pipe had been drilled by the previous owner so had a little sound and actually performs better on torque at lower rpm where she rides. She thought I did her a favor. But it doesn’t look nearly as good and is 4 times bigger.

If you want max performance dyno is better than someone else’s map. What type of tuner is less important. And if you don’t want dyno just get a Dobeck and tune yourself.

Even with drilled out stock pipe a simple tuner to richen things up is where you start.

I would have to agree with the sound of drilled out stock mufflers. I think they are the best sounding of all. Although sound is so objective. They are loud enough but still have a deep tone without the raspyness of aftermarket pipes. Although I also think they look the worst of all. But.... they are inexpensive.

I actually don't mind the look. Has a pretty cool "hot rod" look, but they are really heavy. Drilling out the baffles "VMod" is definitely the best sound hands down, but you better have pretty laid back neighbors because it's for sure the loudest exhaust.

Howdy Moler.
RE- Best Sound - " would have to agree with the sound of drilled out stock mufflers."
You mean VMOD-1, use a hole-saw to cutout the inner baffle and pull it out?
Not the mod where you just drill some holes in the muffler tip, right?

I plan on doing VMOD-1, I got 2 sets of stock pipes to work with.
Loud but not nuts loud, unless up in higher the RPM'S I hope,
like you can still roll out and idle it past someone walking a dog and stuff like that. Sitting Warming up the idle is loud but not obnoxious loud?
No Issues here in MA about Passing inspections, just wondering..
Thx!

I read somewhere on here that VMod is the loudest exhaust option, according to DB readings. I'll have to see if I can find the post. So that means pretty loud. I'm the def the loudest bike at any meet i go too.
