Questions & Answers
Is this available with fish tails?
By: don s
Provided you're looking to fit this exhaust onto a 1997 thru 2016 model year Softail, then yes, you can add fish tail end caps to this exhaust system, but the exhaust system is not sold as a complete kit with those end caps installed. The fishtail end caps must be purchased separately. You can find the optional Softail Dual Fishtail end caps on our website here. By purchasing those two kits together, you'll get a dual-exhaust full system with fishtails to fit 1997 thru 2016 model year Softails.
Are the pipes one piece starting at the engine block. And do they come with sensors? Thanks
I have a 2016 heritage softail and I am looking for a big buffer sound.
The pipes are actually made up of two pieces for the right side, and three pieces of tubing for the left side. It's also covered in the same amount of Vance & Hines heat shielding. There are no exhaust oxygen sensors included with the kit, you are to re-use the Harley O2 sensors when installing these Vance & Hines Heritage Softail dual exhaust pipes.
With regard to sound, oh yes - they have a great boom to them! You can even turn it up by removing the included louvered baffles!
Do I have to change or modify my oil tank to install the duel exhaust for a 2012 FLSTC
Vance & Hines exhausts for the 2012 FLSTC will certainly work with the stock oil tank. You won't need to change or modify the FLSTC oil tank in order to install this, or any other Heritage Softail Vance & Hines exhaust that we sell.
Is all hardware necessary for installation included? Is any work required for the sensors? Which, if any, baffle is included? Can I order the optional Fish Tail end caps? Is this a job for a do it yourselfer?
For your hardware question, so long as your bike is currently equipped with the stock exhaust system, everything you need is included in the box. You needn't purchase any additional parts. That said, if you want to get the biggest possible power gain out of the exhaust, we highly recommend you purchase a Vance & Hines FP3 Fuelpak. With that tool, you'll be able to flash the ECU on your bike to match the fuel delivery requirements of this exhaust. For installing the oxygen sensors, you simply unscrew the stock ones already on your bike and then put them in the exhaust.
Each muffler is fitted with a Vance & Hines' standard baffles. They're secured in place with one screw each, so removal and installation of those is rather straight forward. As for the fish tail end caps, you can find them on our website on the Vance & Hines Softail Duals Fishtail II Muffler End Caps page.
Installing the exhaust isn't really a major job. If you're comfortable with changing the oil in your bike, then this won't be much of a challenge. Usually, it can be completely within one evening in the garage. Just be sure to take your time and read through the included instructions carefully before you begin.
To help with your research, you can download a copy of the included instructions here.
does this come with any endcaps
Yes, this exhaust is fitted with a set of straight cut end caps. They're afffixed with a single screw, which makes changing them out to some of the other offerings from Vance & Hines rather simple. We also have the Fishtail II Muffler End Caps available to fit this exhaust on our website in case you wanted to go with a set of Fishtail Vance & Hines Softail exhausts.
do these pipes come in black?
Vance & Henes Softail Duals are only available with a chrome finish.
Does this kit come with header pipes starting at the engine?
Yes, that's correct. The Softail Duals from Vance & Hines completely replace the OEM exhaust system from the headers on back. You'll need to re-use some of the OEM bolts and brackets to complete the installation, but otherwise, you get a completely new exhaust system.
have a 2014 heritage softail 2 pipes same side.want 1 pipe per side will this work
Since this 2014 FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic exhaust system from Vance & Hines completely replaces the OEM exhaust from the engine back to the mufflers, you'll certainly get the one pipe-per-side configuration that you're after. Just choose your exact machine from our fit guide and you'll get everything you need to have one pipe running out from each side of the rear wheel.
are v&h mufflers available for the softail true dual system
This Softail duals exhaust system will only work with the mufflers included in the kit. If you're looking for a two-sided exhaust to fit the Softail, and want options for the type of muffler - check out the Bassani True Dual Crossover Header Pipes. Bassani give you three choices of muffler to fit that exhaust system:
Bassani Slash Cut Slip-On Exhaust
Bassani Slant Cut Slip-On Exhaust
Bassani Megaphone Slip-On Exhaust
Are the mufflers available as slip-ons only?
Unfortunately, the mufflers are not available separately. They can only be had as a part of the complete exhaust system since it's the headers that allow for the dual-sided exit. There's no dual-sided slip-on exhaust available for the models in question since it's the header design that allows for the outlet on either side of the swingarm. In other words, the only way to get mufflers on both sides of the bike is by completely replacing the stock exhaust system.
