Last night I decided to do V-mod my exhaust myself the hardest part about the entire process was telling my wife that I know what I am doing:angeldev:

This morning I went to Home Depot to get a couple of hole saws, arbor bit and a dowel....(thanks to AOW who gave me the hole saw sizes in a different thread):notworth:

Came home and removed the cans from the bike. When I took my corded drill out I realized that the arbor bit was to large for my drill. But it would fit my cordless drill. However the cordless drill didn't cut the mustard. So......back to Home Depot I went to get a new corded drill:banghead:

Once I got home.......hooked up the drill......and it was like a hot knife thru butter. Until the hole saw bottomed out on the tip (exhaust end) of the baffle. Not a problem.......I took out the dremel to finish the cut. I then proceeded to cut the 3rd volume end.......then repeated the process on the other can.

LESSON LEARNED: do not get a shallow hole saw.

All in all it was a very simple process. Even with buying a new drill....it was still cheaper then sending them out to be done!

and when you modify the stock exhaust do you have to make any modifications to the Fuel system?
Yes, I picked up a PCIII from EBay about two weeks ago. Where in Upstate New York are you?

Hi,

What sizes of hole saws did you purchase?

Thx,
David
On the exhaust end I used 2 1/8inch. On the 3rd volume end I used 1 3/4.
