    1990 loud pop/backfire and lurches on acceleration

    My 1990 Max has been giving me problems since mid-last summer. I'm a daily rider but learning to wrench as probs arise. Not the best situation but it's reality. So... I've had a charging problem since spring last year. Bought new battery and all was well for two weeks or so. Then the new battery...

    Opened up cobra 4-4s for Sale. Loud.

    Came on the bike. I opened them up by cutting off the battle ends. Will take best offer and would be happy to ship in the CO-US. Just installed a stock muffler so figured I would sell or trade these off to someone!

    Loud exhaust, low $$, no power loss

    I tried a little experiment about a year ago and didn’t want to post anything until I could get Dyno #s to go along with the idea. I have Dale Walker Holeshot exhaust. I originally took off the slip on mufflers and replaced them with Hedman Hot Tips 17120 exhaust tips. (about $25 each)...

    Hi Guys, first post here. Actually, first post in a motorcycle forum. Anyway, I bought a 2006 with 1600 miles on the clock about 2.5 months ago and although I think the bike is terrific, I don't think my neighbors do. The bike has a Kerker 4-1 exhaust with stage 7 jetting. Obviously I love the...

    Too loud! I know rite?!?!

    I've just purchased this 99 V-max and it's incredibly loud. Not harley davidson loud, but pretty doggone close. It's a Kerker. How can I tell if it's a 4-1 or 2-1? I can provide a better picture of the exhaust if you need. I hate loud bikes. Yes it still needs to sound throaty, but it...

    2002 vmax+ufo exhaust= loud hp

    UFO exhaust went togather nice. Looks great and sounds bad ass. Cant wait until Damon installs stage 7. Damond also has extra packing for my muffler's. This should give it a deep sold sound. One thing for sure when a UFO bike shows up you will know it. http://youtu.be/XU88G9O6CLk...

    Neighbors battling over loud pipes

    Read this on another board, here's a snipit: That's from a Texas M/C board, and man, can I see that happening in my neighborhood. I have left my dB-killers in my mufflers, just for this reason. (Well, that, and I don't need my ears to ring any more than they already do...) Funny stuff...
