Going down to OH tonight to pick up my 9 Saturday. Was looking through the instrutions for my V & H Big Shots last night.............I see they make reference to retaining the EXUP system?? I thought that got the toss with the stock exhaust? According to the instructions......I remount the EXUP device onto the V & H supplied exhaust mount plate (d@mn! could they have made it any heavier?!), after installing a different cam in the EXUP. Is the EXUP different from, or related to the SET I've frequently seen reference to in these forums?
The Big Shots are coveed from stem to stern with heat shields. Looks like a lot of extra weight on an already severely overweight bike to me. Any of you BS users NOT put the heat shields on (especially the head pipe shields)? Any heat issues (on your leg or foot) from not running the HSs?
