Bought The V and H Pipes

So, picked up the Vance and Hines pipes on e-bay earlier and they look great! Chrome is good and shined up fantastic. They are going to look really nice on the ride. The only problem is two of the three brackets are broken on the chrome heat shield. The PO just used clamps on the outside to attach them to the pipes. Not liking that at all.

Any chance of welding new ones without affecting the chrome? Maybe mig or solder? Just needs a thin strip of metal for the clamp to go around.

Also, anyone know the correct jets for these puppys? They are the cruzers.

With the stock intake you should not have to rejet. You may need to adjust your AF mixture screws to 2-2.5 turns out from 0. I don't know about welding the tabs, but that's a shame.

So called V and H. They suggest the main jet to be 135, shim needle valve 1mm and fuel-air 2 1/3 turns. Help M Angel...

Lol... I'm the default SE Michigan mechanic. C'mon man its not super hard to do, but taking the carbs out and putting them back is a pain. Changing jets is easy and shims aren't bad either.
