Have heard drilling your baffles is an inexpensive way to increase the sound of your bike. My problem is the only people I have heard that have done that modification are 1300 X owners. They seem thrilled at the results. Suggestions?
Drilled mine when first got the bike. Since have different pipes but yes you can drill your stockers. Very much the same as the link provided. Start with a few holes about 3/8" and ride. See how you like the sound. Want more, add more holes or get a bigger drill bit, 1/2" You can also drive a rod thru the center baffle and go louder. http://bareasschoppers.com/exhaust/
Drilled mine, then routed out the space between the holes,
then punched out the baffles. Maybe some day I'll spring
for aftermarket pipes, but,... mine sound great now:
not too loud unless I crack her open!
good to hear that some 1800 riders have done the drilling thing. I kept running into 1300 riders who had done the deed. Knew I wasn't the first one who wanted to be louder. Send pictures please. [email protected]
Hi, I'm looking for the Barnett clutch springs # 501-48-06129 for my 1800 does anybody know were I could get these in Canada. I went to Barnett and they want over 40.00 bucks for shipping, they are nuts. thanks
G’day guys ..I’m very limited in Aust for parts & things don’t go well ordering from the US. I can’t locate a set of progressives (that so many in the US seem to love) ..yet I can get a pair of YSS RZ362 - apparently these fit the 1800c
Anyone tried them ? Chromed are about equiv $600usd here
Just curious, what’s a happy range for RPMs when you’re cruising? I do something like 2500-4000, but I have gone up to 5K. FYI today I was on the freeway and when the clock read 90 mph the tach read 3800 RPMs.
anyone experience with these combined with forward controls?
I don't care for highway/crash bars. and none will work with forward controls, only with the oem mid-controls. I am wondering if these will work seeing as they mount to the controls at the same point vs. a highway bar that is...
