So what pipes do you recommend Brett?

Can you please include the approximate retail prices so we can make a good comparison!?!?

I'll start with the one we've been debating about, the "turbo' pipe..I think they are like $40 - $45

Pipes are a funny thing, the venom pipe I had on my gs15r had it screaming like Macauley Culkin running from Michael Jacksons bedroom! and I could never get it to work with a CVEC pipe $60 vs $140 go figure, but hell it was loud.

I cant get the gs tuned well now with the new pipe It seems to have lost any low end punch at take off, unless I just remember it being better than it really was

What settigs do u have for tuning v-ones seeing as u have the same pipe and filter?

Hmm the acceleration. Try reducing the distance
between the pipe and manifold with the coupler.
It should improve acceleration low end while increasing it should increase top end speed.

Im going to have to re tune my engine again since i got the kyosho pipe. But its not a long process i guess.

Default My Engine Problem.

I'm not 100% sure... but I think my problems are (partly?) carby related... ie. my carb is screwed up big time. I also know I need a new pull starter!

Hmmm.... what to do ?

Hi guys, do you know if the RR anti-roll bar/sway bar set fits on a S with the modified RR rear floating mount?

Also would anyone be able to point me to detailed instructions on installing a centax or 3D clutch onto a V-One S?

Thanks in advance.

With the new pipe it should be running rich as now. Time to retune. Start with bottom end ,then tune top end then final adjustments.

It should be fine because they're the same shape... but you may have to grind the length down a bit so it can clear the manifold and the belt... that's what I have to do anyway.

hmmmm let me see

rossi pipes are the way to go one for top end and the other for bottem they are about 120 each

the stock ae pipe has alot of bottem punch for thoes small tight tracks thinks its like 50 bucks

the standard thunder tiger pipe 34 bucks has an extreem amout of top end but u end up melting it but it is efctive for a while

the ureaka pipe also have good mid and top they are about 50 bucks

the great vigor pies are pretty much useless but are better then some stock mufflers bout 45 bucks

so there is just a few
