I just installed Vence & Hines pipes, but I found it a bit too load for my ears and I think it will disturb my neighbours.

I am thinking about installing buffles.

Hey Kruser Adam here we met on the Lithgow run.
Using those baffles is a waste of time and money and according to my ears and others that have tried them they just make the noise more annoying

Hi Adam,

Good to see you here..... you have to come for a ride with us sometime.

Oh.... really.... so what do they make the buffle for then....?

My pipes just sound too load for my ears.

The overall Db rating is still within 1 or 2 Db the baffles just make it more "acceptable to the ears" save your money and get some earplugs. Just my 2cents

Unfortunately,,,,,, I have to go back to the original pipes as I found these pipes are too load for my ears.

I installed them on Wednesday and today I took them off and put the originals back on today. So, I only used them for 4 days.
I am a musician and music teacher and I really need my ears.

I love the sound of these pipes, but I found that they are not for me.

I will see if I can somehow make them a bit quieter, otherwise I will sell them.

harry there is a way of modifying your stock pipes to make them a little louder.
There is a bit around on the net if you google it.
Otherwise I hear that the formula 1 pipes for the 900 are not quiet so loud and give off a different pitch.
Maybe you could try these. Kawasaki in Chatswood use them on there Vulcans when they change out pipes.
Maybe you could swap your V&H for a set of these. Just a thought.

I think Harry has a unique problem in that he finds the pipes too loud.....does anyone know a shop in sydney that can modify the standard pipes?

PostSubject: my vance and hines   Fri Jan 27, 2012 2:33 pm

Hi all
Just installed my new vance and hines exhaust today with a K&N filter. Talk about loud, might use ear plugs next time.
By the time I did a loop of Lake Macquarie my ears had got use to it. I got plenty of looks from other road users and pedestrians and thats what it's all about, they can hear me coming.
Performance was improved as well.

PostSubject: Vance and Hines backfiring   Sun Feb 12, 2012 2:09 pm

Hi all.
Has anyone had a problem with backfiring after they installed vance and hines on there vulcan 900.
After installing mine plus a K&N filter, when I ease off the throttle it pops and bangs quite regularly.
Does anyone have a salution for this problem.
Cheers

The usual rule is if air or exhaust is done its usually fine

If you have fitted both you should get a PCIII and a tune to optomise performance and economy

PostSubject: power commander   Mon Feb 20, 2012 2:12 pm

Hi stew066
I would be interested in the power commander if it will certainly fix the problem and not void the warranty.
I will have a chat to the local kwaka shop mechanic.
Is it a DIY installation.
Cheers

Hi Cool classic,
It will fix the problem and you can install yourself but suggest you getting the mapping done by shop and then put on Dyno....
Have Pm'd you details.
