Get it re-jetted. K&N filter. Dyno-jet kit. Remove the PAIR system. You'll love the sound and performance.
RIGHT ON !!!! YOU WILL LOVE THE SOUND, I AM ADDING A HYPERCHARGER IN A WEEK AS THE CHERRY !!!

I just added the bigshots and love the sound. I did not rejet or change the filter. Will doing that make it sond better as well improve the performance.

I didn't have to rejet mine. It runs fine so far. No change in power as far as my seat can tell.

From what I hear, you'll get more power with jet and different A/C with that exhaust.

Probably depends on where you live, but it does perform and sound best with a higher flowing air kit and a rejet.

I needed to rejet when I added just the pipes.

Hubby and I just put my V&H Big Shots on last night. I started her up and WOW, what a difference. I love the sound. Can't wait to take my bike out for a ride. Too bad it is raining here today.

Tonight hubby is going to put a jet kit on my bike.

Did you do the complete pair valve removal when you did the pipes?, if not the sound gets even better....much deeper.

I took my bike out for a little test ride. So far so good.

Did you choose the Hyper Charger Pro or the standard? I am trying to decide which Hyper charger for my 1300R. I already have VH Big Shot Pipes and a jet Kit with K&N filter. Does the Pro Hyper charger perform any better or different than the standard Hypercharger on a 1300? Anyone know? Does the Hyper charger cause your leg to kick out any further?

hyper

from what I researched, they performe the exact same way. The look is about all that changes.

I kinda like the PRO for its sleekness. BUT I also like the standard, looks meaner.
