Vtx 1800 Mods

Ok, I changed my stock exhaust to the Vance and Hines Big Shots w the slash cuts in them. These pipes rock but... I ordered a Power Commander that hasn't arrived yet. The exhaust sounds radical as hell, it pops a bit when I let off of the throttle. I cannot stand the popping sound it makes, it's just plain ignorant.

I'm hoping that when I hook up the Power Commander it will take care of the fuel mixture n STOP this annoying popping. Has anyone had the same problem? Will the PW take care of this issue?

Re: Vtx 1800 Mods

Yes, the PC should take care of the popping on decel. Popping on deceleration is a typical symptom of running lean. Since you added bigger pipes (you are flowing more air) which means you need to flow more fuel too; that's where the PC comes in.

true, but it's not a Harley. and you try and make your VTX look and sound like one. . if your trying to get one like the real thing, just get the real thing, JMHO
the PC should help your decel pop. but there are other products, since you are using V&H pipes I'd recommend the V&H Fuelpak, easy to install and set up.
I use the TTS mastertune, best in my book

Re: Vtx 1800 Mods

RAGDADDY, i wasnt knocking the bike, just the addition of those pipes, specially with baffle removed. i fix metric v-twins all the time, and its always the same thing. remove JET KIT, install oem keihen emulsion tube, remove centerfold pipes, install OEM exhaust, or slip ons, or 2-1, jet correctly.

after you see the low end dissapear and the new wears off that exhaust noise, you will see what i am talking about.

BTW, my bike leans no oil, and will embarrass that 1800 any way ya wanna compare performance. but thats not where i was headed, i just try my best to help people-----even if it hurts initially.

sorry man, didnt mean to hurt your feelings.

Re: Vtx 1800 Mods

Bro... you did not hurt my feelings lol! Just F'in with you!!! I appreciate the advise truly though. I am not going to take out the baffles on the VTX anyway, it's already loud enough.

By the way... my V-Max will run over pretty much ANY bike that takes my 1800 dog of a cruiser anyway lol!! The cruiser is to CRUISE... if I want to ride like my hair's on fire, I'll pull out the 145hp V-MAX and run light to light n embarrass some "Ride to Live/Live to Ride" peeps!! lol

Oh also, to the gentleman advising to get the REAL HARLEY stuff... it aint that serious Brother. I just like to ride and have a nice rumble to my scoot! What does JMHO meananyway

I LOVE MY COUNTRY BROTHERS!!!!!!! "SEMPER FI"
