  1. i like the noise, but its the popping and coughing on overrun that i dont like, specially when the flames shoot thru?
  2. I have noticed the co's on both are low and hc's high on the rear cylinder is way high. I dont know what the emissions should be but i guess theres an issue with the plug or mixtures?
  3. Hi guys, i bought myself a dragstar last year (first time ive had a bike in a while), she is a nice looker with a vance and hynes exhaust system and sounds superb. I noticed that at higher speed when i released the throttle she would pop back through the exhaust, but was very loud. I was told to get a manometer and set the carbs up which i have done. I ride up the street and she runs beautiful with no backfiring atall. But when shes ticking over and i rev her, she will give a loud pop and sometimes you can see flames in the back of the exhaust? i assume this isnt normal or am i wrong? Any help or advice appreciated

  6. Hi guys, just joined this forum as im new to customs and need your advice please. I have a 2007 dragstar 1100 which i purchased back in the spring. First time custom rider and im well impressed with my new bike, however the bike has a vance and hines exhaust system onit which i believe causes this popping on decaccelerating and being a considerate type i find it a little too noisy when popping back, specially round walkers with dogs etc?? Anyways i understand this is normal with these type of pipes, the bikes sounds and rides beautifully but what ide like to know is, can i replace the exhaust with a standard muffler/ exhaust? and if so would i have to get the carbs reset with new jets and the like? Any advice would be appreciated.
