new rider 9984 i had a stock intake when i put my v&h on and the bike ran great except for the popcorn on decel i fixed that by marbling the bike aka removing and blocking off all the emissions crap

now i have done the ear shave with the uni pod filters and 142/42 jets and two shims on the needles a/f screws at 2.5 each and she still runs like a beast

Deviate You don't have to do anything with R/R. Actually since installing the V&H pipes removes the goats belly, you remove the heat source that is thought to cause issues for the R/R.

As for rejetting...you will get a bunch of different answers from people on that question. I'm no expert by any means, but my basic understanding is that if you change the intake OR the exhaust you don't need to rejet. If you change both, then you might need to. So if you still have the ears (stock airboxes) you don't necessarily have to rejet for an exhaust. You may be able to just adjust the air mixture screws for any changes if any are needed. But every bike is different.

When I ear shaved my bike, I went ahead and rejetted to 142/42 with the air mixture screws 2.5 to 2.75 turns out, which may have been overkill and I may have been running rich. Not long after I swapped out my exhaust for the V&H Cruzers. That combination on my bike ran really well according to my butt dyno.

mrseedsower if I get the vance and hines pipes will I have to move the r/r and do anything else to that is needed moving with the goat heating up things or can I leave them where they are.

Also do I need to rejet? I have a friend that got those pipes and he didn't know to rejet and his runs fine.

Deviate Yup. The V&H pipes, if you get them new at least, will come with everything you need to mount them except the crush gaskets. They will mount where the stock exhaust mounts and they even come with a support bracket to catch the center stand so it won't rest on the pipes, because you will remove the goat's belly.

The V&H pipes mounts similar to your existing exhaust, to the passenger footrest brackets.

mrseedsower Deviate,

Deviate I bought my V&H Cruzers from Partzilla. They were the cheapest at the time. You really have to shop around because the prices vary a lot from place to place. The picture at Partzilla and most everywhere else is a different bike and shows them both on the right side. But on the VN750 they are one pipe on each side just like the stock exhaust.

Partzilla showed the part number as XP-4176602 when I bought mine. They also have a cross reference part number of:
V31363 - Parts Unlimited
VH2074 - Tucker Rocky

VH2074 is what they show at V&H's site too:

M_Angell If you order them online they don't have the correct stock photo. V&H only makes one model for our bikes...the cruzers.

Help Vance and Hines model

I saw a set of Vance & Hines pipes on a vn750 today, that one Pipe went down one side and one pipe went down the other but everything I look at it online is two Pipes down one side. Does anyone know where I can look for the pipes like ours but by Vance and Hines. Also the guy did not rejet his carbs.
