Post First Oil & Tranny change and V&H quiet baffles

Ok , I just purchased my 03 warrior and today I changed the oil, transmission and installed quiet baffles in my Vance and Hines Big Shots.


Took the pipes off to change the tranny fluid, and WOW, what a **** of a time reinstalling the pipes, its like they shrunk. lots of swearing and frustration but finally got them installed. Installing the head pipes first left me to short on the rear. So I had to install the rear and then man handle with a 2x4 to flex the front header into position...WOW


Im exhausted but overall happy, and learned a lot about these pipes.
Quiet Baffles went in seamless and I noticed a difference in sound, but not a lot, just perfect for me.

Yeah I have the same pipes. They are a major pain in the ass to get them back on! The rear bolts donít want to line up! What makes things worse is one of my front studs is bent so it makes it even harder. Next time they come off Iím fixing the stud! Bike looks great.

pulled passenger backrest off, sanded it down (removed rust) and primed it. Don't have paint at the moment. Hopefully this weekend.
