Loud Pipes!

5 stars

By on April 4, 2016

I have a Fat Boy Lo with these pipes, no baffles. Thay are loud and sound great! Neighbors may not appreciate them as much I do. Cars hear me coming and some times move out of my way. They are intimidating and make the bike sound mean. If you want loud cool pipes these are for you!

These pipes fit my Softail Slim like a glove. They look great, soungs great and i know cars hear me coming. I upgraded my intake to a top of the range V&A intake and it has given my bike even more power and it sounds even better now. Highly recommend doing both.

Questions & Answers

  • How much will i have to rejet my carb. with these Shortshots?

    By: terry

    It really depends on what configuration your machine already happens to be in: its state of tune, air cleaner used, altitude you're riding in &etc. The good news is that Vance & Hines produces a range of jet kits that are designed specifically to match their exhausts to your machine's fueling needs. Simply search our store for "Vance & Hines Carburetor Jet Kit" to find the jet kit you need to go along with your Vance & Hines exhaust.

    By: Staff

  • Does the motorcycle need to be rejetted?

    By: Joey

    While you can probably get away with installing this Vance & Hines exhaust by itself, to get the best possible throttle response and engine performance, it's always best to adjust fueling accordingly. Basically, any time you change the way air gets into or out of, the motor, you'll want to install the appropriate jet kit to maximize any performance gains available from the new setup.

    We have a wide selection of jet kits that go well with this exhaust, including a Dynojet carburetor jet kit that comes with everything you need to tune your bike's fueling perfectly to go with the Vance & Hines exhaust.

    By: Staff

  • Do I have to install the tuner to run them because of the new exhaust.

    By: Guest

    Most modern motorcycles will run well enough without having the fueling adjusted after the installation of an aftermarket Vance & Hines exhaust system. The stock fuel-injection system can compensate for some, but not all - fuel mapping requirements when you make a big change like installing an exhaust or air cleaner. Most of the roughness will be noticed around idle and at 1/3 throttle as those are the areas where emissions testing focus. While the bike may run lean or surge a lot at those RPMs, when you give it a handful, the bike picks right.

    If you spend most of your time just cruising around town or riding to-and-from work, for example - then you'll certainly want to get your bike re-mapped. This way, you get the best possible throttle response and the most engine power output, too. For a Vance & Hines exhaust, we prefer the Fuelpak FP3 or a Dynojet Power Commander V. Both of these units give you the adjustability you need to get the best performance out of any bike.

    By: Staff

  • What size diameter at the exaust for my 2013 Sportster 883?

    By: Andy

    Vance & Hines Shortshots for the 2013 Sportster are equipped with heat shields that measure 1-3/4" in diameter.

    By: Staff

  • Do these pipes come with new gaskets?

    By: Duane

    Vance & Hines exhausts do not come with exhaust gaskets. Provided the gaskets on your machine are in good shape, you can certainly re-use them when installing this exhaust. If you're unsure as to their condition, we have a wide range of Harley-Davidson exhaust gaskets available on our website to choose from depending on your needs.

    By: Staff

  • Does this exhaust come with the proper mount for the 2014 lowrider and should a tuning kit be used

    By: Monster

    Yes, all required hardware is included with this exhaust to fit the 2014 Harley FXDL, though you will have to re-use some of the OEM exhaust's mounting hardware and fasteners. So long as you still have the stock exhaust on your bike, you should have no problems fitting the Vance & Hines system to your bike as you won't need to purchase any other Dyna Low Rider exhaust mounting parts.

    With regard to a tuning kit, yes - we highly recommend that you modify fuel delivery when installing this exhaust for the FXDL. In this way, you can be assured the best possible throttle response and engine power output. For the Shortshots, we recommend a Vance & Hines FP3 Fuelpak. Once you put the FP3 on your bike (literally, a five minute operation), all you need to do is install the free Vance & Hines app on your Android or iOS smartphone, configure it and you're all set. Plus, should you decide to add an air cleaner or put on a different exhaust in the future, the FP3 can be configured to deal with those changes easily.

  • If I have a dynojet stage one jet kit already and switch from just slip ons to shortshots staggered will I have to do anything else.

    By: Big D

    Provided you have all of the original components included in that Harley Davidson Dynojet kit, then you should have everything you need to get the most out of this exhaust. Depending on which bike it is that you have, you may need to adjust the fuel needle, or you may need to install a different main jet. Those parts would have been included in that jet kit. And of course, all of this is explained in the jet kit's instructions.

    By: Staff

  • I have a 2015 shadow phantom. I have no mods done to it. Do I need to add something on if I install these pipes?

    By: Alex

    While no other modifications are required, if you want to get the best possible benefit in power output and throttle response, we highly recommend a Cobra Fi2000R Fuel Controller to go along with this, or any other Shadow Phantom full exhaust system. The tuner device works much like a carburetor in terms of how it's set up - and the included instructions do an excellent job of explaining exactly how to get it set up for your bike's specific configuration.

    By: Staff

  • I have a 2016 Honda Shadow Phantom and I want to put these pipes on it. What else do I need to get to make the bike run as best as it can with the new pipes while not breaking the bank buying new parts.

    By: Matt

    With the installation of a new full exhaust system, you'll want to adjust fuel delivery in order to avoid poor throttle response and also, maximize engine power output. The first is almost always more annoying than the latter, especially when you're just cracking the throttle a little to improve the line you're taking mid corner.

    To mitigate these problems for your particular exhaust and machine combination, we recommend a Cobra Fi2000R Fuel Controller. With that device, you'll be able to add the extra fuel required to have the bike respond to even the most minute throttle inputs in a consistent and predicable manner. And of course, you'll get the best possible engine performance as well. Setting the device up is simple, and the included instructions do an excellent job of explaining everything.

  • Will my bike go faster

    I own a new 2015 Honda shadow phantom 750, my top speed i ever gone on my bike is only 90 mph, and thats when im going full throttle. I read that your suppose to make your bike lighter for speed, and that you need i think a more wider exhaust, so i would like to know if this specific exhaust will increase my speed.

    By: Sergio

    If fuel delivery is properly adjusted, you can expect a small increase in top-end speed with the installation of this full exhaust system. Whether or not that'll get you over 100 mp/h is hard to say, especially if you spend most of your time riding at higher altitudes. What is for certain is that, if you were to install the exhaust by itself without adjusting fueling, you'd probably notice a decrease in top speed since the engine wouldn't be tuned correctly for the new exhaust.

    In order to get the most power and performance out of the pipes, we recommend the installation of a Shadow Phantom Cobra Fi2000R Fuel Controller as well. That particular tuner is ideal for use with any full exhaust system. It allows you to add fuel where needed and, in doing so - will help you get the best possible benefit that comes with the installation of a full exhaust system. Again, it won't really increase top speed very much, but it'll certainly help you get there faster.

    By: Staff

  • Will these pipes fit with forward controls on a 2009 nightster XL1200 and does all the nessessary hardware to mount properly to the bike come with the purchase?

    By: Bryan

    You shouldn't have any problems fitting this exhaust to your machine so long as the forward controls, at least their mounting brackets - don't protrude much beyond the engine case. We've seen plenty of these exhausts fitted to Sportsters with forward controls, so it's not likely to be an issue.

    As far as hardware is concerned, everything you need to put the exhaust on your bike is included in the box along with a set of easy-to-follow instructions. One caveat, however, is that you'll need to re-use some of the OEM exhaust mount hardware in order to complete the installation. So long as you have the stock exhaust on your bike, you should have no problem fitting this particular unit to your machine.

  • If I have the stage one kit already and switch from just slip ons to shortshots staggered will I have to do anything else.

    2013 soft tail slim . What are the pros and cons if I remove the baffles in the short shot staggered exhaust pipes?

    By: Big D

    If your FLS had its fuel delivery tuned for the current configuration, then it's probably going to be pretty close to ideal when you put the Harley Slim Shortshots exhaust on there. Still, you may want to have the bike tuned in order to take full advantage of the new exhaust. In this way, you can be assured of the best possible throttle response (something you'll most likely notice) and power output.

    As for the baffles, about the only thing you get when pulling them off the bike is more noise. In fact, unless you're running the bike wide open everywhere you go, there's really no need to remove them. These exhausts are designed to provide the maximum power/throttle benefit with the baffles installed.

    By: Staff

  • Does this kit include new exhaust gaskets or will I have to purchase them separately? And if so can you give a link to them I can't seem to find them on the website. Thanks.

    2010 Sportster 883 Iron

    By: Anthony

    There are no exhaust gaskets included with this kit. And, in many cases, you can easily re-use the OEM exhaust gaskets upon the installation of this Sportster Iron Vance & Hines exhaust. Just be careful to have a look at them when you get the original exhaust off the bike to be sure they're up to snuff.

    Still, if you want to be absolutely sure nothing will hold up your installation, we do have a set of Cometic Race Style Sportster Iron exhaust gaskets to fit that back, Unfortunately, they can only be had in packages of ten.

    By: Staff

  • do these come with 02 sensor ports

    By: Kevin P.

    If your bike shipped from the factory with oxygen sensors, then yes - there are ports in the exhaust for fitting the OEM O2 sensors.
