Are you running any FI controller? And if so have you tried Dyno tuning with the Cobra's? It may be that you are just running pretty lean... which you can fix.ChuckyC said:I love the way my Cobra dragsters sound but I lost some performance.Â With winter coming and the girlfriend not wanting to ride due to the cold I am going to go with the JR type fabrication of the stockers.Â When she's on the back I can't play.Â Â If you decide you are interested I'm going to sell the Dragsters.Â I will probably sell them for 250.00 + shipping.Â Just PM me.
I still haven't seen a diagram of this engine.....so are you saying the connecting rods don't go to the same place on the crank hence it doesn't sound like a Harley? Also is this how Honda Yamaha Kawasaki and Victory build their engines? I've been curious since I heard it running the first time .......doesn't really sound like a Harley.steve j said:I guess if this bike had a single pin crank pin on it it might sound better
page 3-71 of the VZR1800 Service Manual... shows the crank very well... two individual rod journals... hope this helps...mjmPretentiousBastage said:I still haven't seen a diagram of this engine.....so are you saying the connecting rods don't go to the same place on the crank hence it doesn't sound like a Harley?

I heard the Sideburners on a burple M109. Its loud! Correction, a good powerful thunder loud. I didn't like the one huge pipe and the slash cut faces outward towards side.steve j said:personally the modified stockers sound better than the aftermarket 2-2's out there. I you ever listen to the 109 with 2-2's on it you will know what I mean. I guess if this bike had a single pin crank pin on it it might sound better with those pipes but it's just loud and flat sounding. I have yet to personally hear a 2-1 on it yet but I am betting they will sound way better and perform better too. the Sideburner from DG or Hardkhrome is supposedly shipping now but there are stories about the performance from these so you may want to check out the dyno sheet first. Vance & Hines are working on a 2-1 but are tight lipped about the final look or when they ship. It could wind up looking like the 2-1 they show on their website on the V-Rod there on the first page or could look like the classic Pro Pipe megaphone but they did say in an e-mail to me the design "could" be different than the standard Pro Pipe. Hacker pipes has theirs being made right now with some being sent to the chromers already but no data as of yet on the Dyno sheet numbers.Â :bigthumbsup:Â Â

Try it at 100mph++ in a Rally Car .... 2mins 13sec bottom to topperthguy said:The ZigZag is a 4.5km trip from up on the Darling Range down to the flats. Its a true zigzag with 180 degree switchbacks for EVERY corner.... Usually covered with pea-gravel. A hairy ride on fat 9er, thats for sure,
i have cobra slashdowns which i think sound good, i did the block off plates and this thing at an idle sounds as good as the 1800 Honda with Vance and Hines (jmo) to me.pipefitnfool said:does any one have them and do you think it sounds and looks better i need sound any help please let me know :bigthumbsup:
