I too installed the Scootworks bypass kit. I later removed the kit and went back to my stock system with the muffler "strainers" drilled out. I did not care too much for the way the kit fit. Nothing against the product because it is a cheap alternative to custom pipes if you want the loud sound but, for me, the Scootworks kit was too loud and the fit was not perfect.
How does the Vance and Hines system compare, in loudness, deepness (throatiness), stability of fit, etc. to the Scootworks? Also, are the V&H pipes that you installed exiting on the same side, like a Harley Sportster, or are they on each side of the Vulcan750 like the stock pipes? Where are they supported other than at the heads, are there additional mounting brackets that bolt to the frame?
You know what might be a good idea would be if someone would begin manufacturing a goat's belly replacement as a one piece pipe. I mean like pipes on each side that would connect before the mufflers but with a crossover that would just fit exactly where the belly was. Then you would have a better sound and still the balancing of of the crossover. Does anyone know of such a replacement pipe for the goat's belly? Does anyone have the equipment such as a MIG welder where they can custom make such a replacment? There might be a good VN750 aftermarket for that. I know that it would be worth trying on my VN750.
