Dan,

My bad... I have a 17555 just like you and wondering what the correct bracket looks like as well.

I probably will not start working on my bike for another few weeks. If you figure out how to fab or have any installation tips, PM me.

Thanks and good luck.

Hey, how did the V&H 17555 install go? I've just found one listed locally and am considering throwing it on my 2005/06 VRSCR (I say 05/06 because when I check the VIN it comes up as an 06, but it's the skinny version so I guess it's an 05) - and just having the mount fabricated up.

Think it'll work?

Cheers! Coss.

Coss,

I haven't installed yet and am actually considering selling the pipes, FuelPak, bung plugs and K&N filter - all new in the box.

The seat height of the Street Rod is simply too tall for me and will most likely sell the bike in the Spring.

Willing to take a loss but not a bath... I think something in the $650 range fore the complete set up is fair. PM me if you are interested.

That's a nice price! Unfortunately, I'm in New Zealand so shipping and the exchange rate bump the price over my (meager) budget. (eg, the pipes here are only ~$220USD). Still with the fueler and filter, it's tempting!

My ride's been lowered and my feet are flat on the ground with my knees bent (I'm 5"11) - have you thought about just chucking a pair of shorter shocks on it? (and re-upholstering the seat will drop a bit more off it too).

Have removed the stock pipes and waiting for a set of polished stainless engine bolts. Figure as long as I have easy access to the clutch cover I would replace the bolts with nice shiny new ones.
The stock pipes came off without a hitch and after close inspection I am confident the brackets from the 17555 V&H (409-P) will not be difficult to modify. At this point the only difference I can see is that the 17555 bracket has a wider space between bolt holes. As there are two brackets I am referring to the one that does not have the part # stamped onto it. I expect I will just measure, drill the new hole and bolt on.
As soon as I get the new engine bolts I'll complete this job and post how it went.
If you're not going to be using the O2 sensor ports you will need the plugs. 18mm X1.5.

Coss,

I caught that you were in New Zealand after I responded.

Rear end is already lowered with a 13.25" shock and only have about 3/4" clearance between my swiping arm cross member and fuel cell.

I'm five six with a short inseam to boot... I should have never sold my softail.

Happy tuning!

Joe,

My iPad is angry and will not display your PM. I will try to pick it up from my office in the morning.

Earlier today I finished the modification to the bracket that came with the Vance & Hines 2 into 1 exhaust, part #17555. Of the two brackets that come with this system (#409-P) only the forward piece requires modification to fit the VRSCR.
The only difference between the brackets that come with the 17555 and 17535 V&H exhaust systems is the spacing between holes on the forward bracket.
I used the rod that is removed from the stock set up to measure the spacing for the new hole. (see pics) New distance from center of holes is 3 inches. The next pic is making sure everything lines up prior to drilling. And finally the finished product. Really a much easier project that I expected and for the bargain prices I have seen on the 17555 pipes, well worth the minor effort of an easy mod.

Very cool... Thanks for the pics and advice on the simple mod to the mounting bracket. I have a six pack of Pyramid waiting for you if you're interested in drilling out one more bracket!

Took it for a spin around the block this afternoon and sounds incredible. However, gonna need that Power Commander real soon. Feels/acts very lean.
Finished product (for now)

I know this thread is pretty old, but the information was very useful in my search for an exhaust for my 2006 Street Rod. The mod Nevr Enuf was good enough to take pictures and share was pretty simple and got me a great full exhaust for less than the price of slip on's.

Thanks all who contributed to this thread and Nevr Enuf for posting the mod and pictures!
