I have a new Jardine Slip-on that leaks :?
at the connection point..... (not a snug fit like the stock pipe/feel air)!!
What is the best (NON- "rigged") way to acheive an airtight fit between the Slip-on and the OEM system?? Should I have it welded on?
(By the way HUGE-POPs at decel and backfires! I don't want to desmog/pcIII until I know my connections are true) :oops:
Help me, Tapper (Or any one)!! You guys are my only hope!!
Thanks,Bros!

:( Sad thing is ....if I had a HARLEY ...A) would i even need to MOD my bike?? (Probably not)
and B) it would be a lot easier to get tech support or advice.

Thanks anyways, folks.

I have the Roadhouse slip-ons. First, I used the Honda clamp and it leaked like crazy. I changed to the Pipe clamps that came with the aftermarket exhaust and no more leaks. I think the Honda clamp may only work with the Honda Slip-on.

A- go buy a Harley
B- you'll need a lot more tech support
C- Your Honda will never be a Harley
D-you won't need mods. you'll need parts to keep it running

To keep up with the X you'd need to double the purchase price.

You post a question and 1 day later you have 2 answers that don't suit you and your crying?

Thanks for affirming my comment BOYS.....!!!!!!!!
You know as I do NOW....... if metric is SOOooo much better!??!!!
Why all these mods????!!?? WHY aren't we happy with the finished product??!!???????????????
I made a BIG mistake... and thank GOD I have the STONES to admit it!!!
I went for value/quality and you know what?!! I got both!! but.... THE FACT THAT I am Fu%&ing with slip-ons and GOD Da*M clamps and removing SH!T from my bike......leads me to one HUGE reality!!!!!!! I am NOT satisfied with my purchase!!! AND MY BIKE IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!!
............ If you have modified your X ...then essintially you wern't completely satisfied....were you!?! Stop lying to yourself!!!!!!!!!!!
(to those of you that have chosen to leave your bike "mechanically" STOCK ..as I have NOW chosen to do... I salute and admire you!!)
I will ride my STOCK VTX AS-IS and be happy! Good-bye wannabe's .... enjoy your crawl to the Harley dealership! :twisted:

You would in fact be doing mods to your Harley

Harleys from the factory have just as quiet an exhaust as your VTX. If you want it louder, you have to put aftermarket pipes on it.

RH Shorty on a C = use a 2" automotive-type u-bolt/clamp.

I don't understand your post? Are you bashing Honda's or are you having problems with your slipons? I don't know one Harley rider who hasn't modified there bike one way or another. And to be honest, with your attitude, you need to be elsewhere other than this board. I don't think the Harley riders will welcome you either. Your very angry, and you need to get to the root of your problem, and your slipons or choice of bike isn't it.
