i ran those pipes on mine and didn't have a issue until i started running the k&n air filter... btw, that was with baffles... without baffles you'll need a fuel managment system.. welcome to the forum!!!

Welcome, If you leave the bike and the V&H pipe stock you won't need a any fuel management changes.

Thanks all for the help just to confirm I have the 2007 vrod with stock pipes no other changes have been made to the stock filter and fuel management system. I just want to change the stock pipes because they have no sound to them, sad but true. It seems there is not a lot of choices when it comes changing pipes for the 2007 vrods. After searching the net and advise from my local HD dealer my only options are the vance and hines power shots and or TAB pipes which will require the fuel and filter upgrades. I looked at the v-mod option however this can only be done in the US, which is a along way from where I live.

I love the stock pipes wish they sounded better, would have saved me a lot of $$ and time. I hope the V&H pipes sound OK otherwise im back to square one

Thanks again for your feedback

Check this link out Rob. HERE
But you will need a fuel management system after you do this. PCIII, SERT or something along those lines.

My 07 was very lean from the factory and yours is too.The smartest way to tune these engines is w the SERT and a dyno.You will notice a big difference in all around performance,especially when you have to cruise @ 2900rpms in 3rd.
I had a PC111 on my 03.They work great,but they can fail.Once the ecm is programmed w the SERT,there is minimum room for failure.
Put a K&N air filter in it and have it tuned on a dyno w the SERT.
