Nice sounding bike, what sort of power and torque did your bike put out on the dyno?

Max Power: 81.30 and Max Torque: 99.48

Dyno printout is on another thread called "Technical Discussions" from yesterday if you want to take a look at it. Post is: DYNO results for V&H Hotrod Sound Pro-Pipe

I guess the map really helps to fine tune how much fuel the bike is getting at different throttle positions when in various gears...so I guess with pretty much a stock engine, the bike will not gain loads and loads of HP or torque over stock from what some of the more seasoned guys have indicated.

I kept the baffles in from the V&H HS Pro-Pipe, I have heard many go with the Big City Thunder baffles...but I decided to stick with these (at least for now). My dumbass tought the HS in the Vanes & Hines HS Pro-Pipe stood for "heat shield" because I read something that said this newer version protects against bluing of the pipes (assumed the older version had discoloration issues). It actually stands for Hotrod Sound. Not sure what the original Pro-Pipe sounds like, but I like the sound of these. I guess Vanes & Hines wanted this version to sound like a muscle car, a hotrod!

the bct baffle is well worth it if you ask me. i have them in my cobra speedster swept exhaust and it sounds and performs way better then stock, great stuff.

Nicely done! It's amazing how much the coil relocation can really clean up the frame.
