Talking New Exhaust

Iíve had some new pipes made for my rebuilt Vulcan, and Iím really happy with how they turned out.

As you can see from the pics, I had the exhaust headers tucked in nice and close to the bike, so I donít think Iíll bother with using heat shields on them for now. I also had the mufflers angled upwards slightly to eliminate the need to remove them to gain access to the rear axle, and I had a balance pipe installed.

I still need to get the bike re-jetted and running properly, so I didnít get a chance to hear them yet. They should sound pretty quiet at the moment though, as the pipe builder also installed a small removable washer about 2-3 inches in from the end of the mufflers so the noise level will pass the safety inspection.
Waddya think?

I like those. Must have cost quite a bit to bit them bent, welded, then chromed.
Very nice outcome and worth every penny.

I too dislike that factory pipes and put the MAC's on, IMHO, they also look much better than the stock setup.

But, to each his own.

Thumbs up

Hey Ozkaw;

Those pipes are pretty good looking! How much you pay for them? and, Do they have removable baffles?

Wow, Ozkaw!!!....

For those who believe that "the pipes make the bike".....you be smokin'..!!!.......

Those do indeed look sharp.

Why don't you also post a pic or two of the bike from the very back...and/or just off center from the very back....?

Are you sure you didn't take a hint from Honda's CBX for these new pipes?!?

Thanks for all the positive comments.
The pipes weren't as expensive as you may think.... Only cost me six hundred 'aussie dollars', (around four hundred and seventy two 'american dollars').
"Tranzac Exhausts" has been a family run business for as many years as I can remember, (currently a one man operation), and the quality Aussie workmanship has always been top notch!!
I'll be sure to let ya all know how they sound.
