Not sure about V-N-H XCR

Pipe finally came in today. Been waiting so long for the noise maker to show up so I rushed home early from work to play only to find out that it DONT fit. Mounting brackets are 3/4 inch from lining up with holes and mid-pipe is touching frame. Wont go any farther forward, Anyone else have that problem? So I immediately call V-N-H up and guy tells me to send picks of it and they will figure something out. Day was not total loss in the mail box was my fuel/air screw from TPI thanks Bob! Did 22 cent mod but did not drill slide, bike runs GREAT, probably sound great with that GD pipe

hmm. that is strange. I'd send it back and get the FMF Q4. I have it, love it, and noticed the power gains instantly. The Vance and Hines is basically the White Bros E2 ( i think) and not that impressive.

DCardoza, I really like the pipe sounds great and looks good too. For the price ya really cant go wrong I think mine was about 259 out the door. Its made well with good material. I have about 4K on it and no signs of fatigue or other problems. I would suggest getting 99db insert, I run mine without. Some people say its to loud but what do they know.
