I just installed these today myself, its was time consuming, at anyrate I need to know if doing the nosmog mod helps the poping issues? also what are the Pros and cons to doing this mod?

also I think my bike has the bad ground issues my bikes is poping now sometimes or should I say acting like it skipping it doesnt do it all the time ,


Thanks for any input

Ever think of

I run the Cobra fi2000 with the [email protected] bigshots with KN filter and runs exellent. I hated my bike for 2 years untill the fi2000 went on. I had all the popping and backfiring, sirging. It sucked but now love my bike.

Click this link and go to PAIR removal (Desmog) read the information there.

Doing the de-smog should get rid of the popping issues. If you still have popping look for exhaust leaks (did you install new gaskets with your new pipes?).

V&H ...KN

I have not had the problems you're having so this might not help. It just another incedence of a set of systems that IS working. I just had the V&H Big Shots put on along with a Kury Pro series HyperCharger and the PowerCommander III. Although there "some" popping on decel, it's not excessive nor irratating to me. My hp went up by 12 and my torque by 6. An amazing thing that happened was that my gas mileage went from 33mpg to 39 mpg.....couldn't believe that. So....I guess I'm saying that the only big difference between yours and mine IS the PCIII. I think I'd go for it...it can only help.
BTW, I figured the pipes would be a nightmare to put on so I let the motorcycle place give me 15% off the cost of the pipes then charge me $88. to put them on. I thought it was a good trade off.

Before you spend the $$$ (unless you just have $300.00 laying around) try the De-Smog! Lots of folks report that the popping is eliminated after doing it.
