V&H Cruzers

I just ordered the Cruzers from directparts.com($337/free shipping) and picked up gaskets from a local HD dealer. I have read that others have had trouble with center stand clearance with the Cruzers. Is this on all years? What should I expect on my 86 and how do I fix if it does hit the pipe?

Thanks
Greg

with them and had no problem with
hitting the pipe about a quarter inch

Make sure you put the inside bushing and washer from the rear pasenger foot peg mount back in on the left side. Mine just clears the stand now. I also had to adjust my rear brake pedal with a visegrips, the guard was rubbing.

And watch your rear braket's the one with the
slight bend in it goes on the left side
(the short pipe side)

Just installed the Cruzers on Friday, everything went suprisingly smooth. I have only been out on her once, but I love the sound already. Center stand is hitting the slightest bit on the left side. I should be able to move the mounting bracket in a bit with a couple of washers. Thanks for the tips.

My Cruzers are due to arrive on the 5th. 310.00 plus free shipping from Midwest Powersports Inc. The stock exhaust is off the bike waiting for the Cruzers to arrive.

Damn! I paid 341 with free shipping from cruiser customizing, but then again they screwed up and duped the order and sent me another set for free(was temted to keep the 2nd set). Being the honest guy I am I called them and told them what happened, all I got was a RGA, not even a thank you.

Do the V&H's pipes say V&H's anywhere ? I'd think they would.
The pipes on my bike look like them, but they don't have any name on them ?
