My screamin eagles were post 93 and the carriage bolts worked fine.look a piece of flat stock, one side to the factory mount with the rubber, the other were the muffler sat and drilled a hole on each side, cut to length, and painted gloss black

Babyboydakota An old school trick is to take chainlink fence post....the large 2 1/25 or three inch tube.
Usually around thirteen dollars for 8 foot. Cut to length and cut the tips. On at a full slant. The other end with multiple one inche cuts to fold in so as to make it tapered to fit on your exhaust. Weld the slits after making sure the diameter at the motor end is adequate. And grind off when done....these pipes come single wall and are coated in either zinc alloy or some other type of coating. Easily ground down and painted or wrapped. A trick to painting these or any other coated metal is to wipe them down after grinding clean with pure white vinegar. Cheap and easy. Use existing hardeware or weld together. Tig is best but not needed. Also smart to just make slipons. Good luck

slickd217 Acct-Automatic cam chain tensioner. Mcct-Manual can chain tensioner. Acct comes stock on vulcans but tend to get loose and allow the cam chains to slack resulting in a ticking noise and in extreme cases can cause the time to jump or chains and guides to wear or break. Mcct basically replace the plunger style with a bolt system that you screw in, set and forget. I just increased the spring tension on mine and worked great because the Mcct are gonna run you around $65 a piece on ebay. Not really hard to just fix the ones you have just takes a few tries. I can detail the process if you'ed like
