Slip on exhaust

Got my 2016 HD street 500 and it sounds like a sewing machine, looked into slip on because don't want to invest money into a complete exhaust system for a beginner bike. The pipe that caught my attention was the Vance and Hines Competition series pipe. I really liked the sound, when I went into HD they told me I need to put a complete stage 1 kit on it. Is this true? is there any pipes where I can just put them on and not have to do a stage 1 kit?

You don’t need FP3 for just a slip on. But man I dig the FP3 with VH naked air intake. I wish I would have did the stage 1 long ago. My little 500 runs great. I like the extra gauges that the FP3 has. If you got the cash, go ahead and stage 1. You wont regret it. I do like the fact that I rode with just a slip on for a year and a half because I really appreaciate the complete stage 1 now. If I would have upgraded before I got to roll it stock I might not be so impressed. Just a couple of thoughts.

That seems absurd. I did a Stage 1 on my 2015 Street 750, and it boosted the HP by 10% and the torque by 20%. IIRC, it cost under $800 total.


$325 for Screamin' Eagle Nightstick muffler
$130 V&H V02 Naked intake
$330 V&H FP3
------
$785

The H-D parts prices are roughly in line with what Gijin cites for V&H parts. Even if the $2K price includes labor, that seems way out of line.


You may want to consider getting the V&H FP3 and doing an auto tune session right off the bat. The guys that have done that claim immediate improvements in performance, although it doesn't help the sewing machine sound.

I didn't even mention labor costs, because I put all the stuff on myself. Really easy to do.

I agree with Gaijin, the costs run around that figure. I got the exact same setup except I got a K&N filter. The costs for the V&H tuner and Competition muffler were about $330 each. Labor is free and you will be amazed by the new sound and feel of your bike.

Put me down for FP3, V02 Naked Intake and Competition Slip-On; I love them on my 750. Definitely worth the price of admission.

Nightstick

I'm lovin' the Screaming Eagle Nightstick 2 into 1 Slip-on P/N 64900220 (US$289) that I installed (with the help of Boardtracker H.D.). With any slip-on no adjustments need to be made according to my research. I purchased (US$31) the 4" Open End Cap (UPC405-3046) P/N 4M3046PS. The open end cap is Stainless Steel with correct bolt holes pre-drilled. I removed all of the round add on discs at the end of the Nightstick. I then used a metal friendly hole saw to cut a hole into the Nightstick OEM end cap and mounted it to cover the Stainless aftermarket open end cap that has a slight protruding exit configuration. The after market end cap is marked ...off road use only.. but this gets covered up well with the modified black painted Nightstick OEM end cap. Although I upgraded the muffler due to my poor hearing (thanks Uncle Sam) for shifting purposes, I am confident in saying that I ended up with an exhaust sound that is recognizable as a v-twin Harley Davidson. It is not overbearing and can be neighborhood street friendly with caution. I'm feelin' Loud & Proud. Life is full of options....

I've been using a Firebrand Loose Cannon on my 2015 XG750 for over 20,000 miles (over 3 years) now without an FP3 and with a stock intake using a K&N filter. I bought the FP3 after putting on 25,000 miles on my bike. I spent $250.00 for my slip on and another $20 for the DQ cause I'm old and it was too loud for me to hear my speakers inside my helmet. I will eventually upgrade the air intake and then tune the bike.

Firebrand Loose Cannon $250.00
DQ insert $20.00

Eliminates the "Sewing Machine" sound.

Just my 2 cents....
