Got the wife talked into "letting" me buy the Bubs pipes for my C. I've got to keep the $'s to a minimum though.
Brand new bike. Bubs for $520.00. Do I have to put in the jet kit? Honda says YES or no warranty. Ok, can I install the pipes and the jet kit myself? I can fix just about anything, but to tear into my brand new bike to save a couple hundred bucks? Huuummmm.

Please help! Wife doesn't like the idea of 750.00 for exhaust. My story, I drive through deer infested highways every morning and afternoon. The pipes will protect my life. Because in about two weeks it will be bike or walking to work and it's twelve miles one way.

Any help would be great!!

You DON'T need to buy a "jet kit" and YES you can do the work yourself.. see link http://www.vtxcafe.com/showthread.php?t=1914 -- You only need A/F adjustment, but most likely will require "1" shim to get maximum performance from your machine... it will also sound better if it's not too lean (yes, there is a difference in sound between rich and lean).
