exhaust upgrade

getting ready to put a set of long shots or dual v&h duals for baggers for a 1100t on my 98 aero 1100.

Is there an easy way to decide what jets will be needed?.

In Ohio and ride in all type of temperatures.

Both carbs? Yeah.

Check out ohioriders.net for lots of cool people in the Cbus area. Lots of group rides in the summer.

V&H dual bagger jets

My 98 VT1100 Tourer had the V&H Dual baggers on it when I bought it (sig pic)....way too loud for me, and after multiple attempts at ways to quiet them down, ended up reinstalling the OEM exhaust (also came with it). The V&H look/sound good if you want to make some noise, but not my thing.

The PO told me it was rejetted for the V&H by the dealer, and looking at Dyno-Jet web site Stage One instructions, they show 160/165 main jets for this bike with aftermarket exhaust (and/or K&N filter if installed - I don't have). Their web site also indicates the Jet kit comes w/different needles.

I assume those are what are in my Tourer's carbs, and although it runs fine with OEM exhaust, seems to run a bit rich and my mileage is only about 40-42mpg. I ordered the original jets (175/180) and needles and will install when they arrive to see if mileage any better.

I did not really detect a noticeable performance difference between the V&H and stock exhaust, but admit I never really spent any time assessing that area.
