XVS 950 - Tuner/Popping solution


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I bought a 2014 XV950 with vance and hines twin slash exhaust already fitted about a year ago, it looks and sounds amazing but i'm looking to tone down the sound and reign in the ridicuous amount of popping.

For the volume i'm thinking smartpartz baffles, i've heard good things about their noise reduction, does anyone have any input or experience with them?

For the popping im thinking of buying a tuner, maybe the Cobra Fi2000r, as a fairly new biker i'm not sure if i'll need to get it dyno'd to get the balance close enough for the tuner to do it's thing, or will it be a case of 'plug & play'?


Cheers in advance.

Smartpartz: yes, very good, recommend them.


Although: try the tuner first, if you eliminate almost all the popping you might not mind the exhaust being as loud as it is.
