I have a 2012 Vulcan 1700 and just bought some new pipes, Cobra speedsters. What else do I need to do this job because I read about some kind of fuel / o2 sensor needed but not sure about the whole thing. Ive only ever changed pipes on 1 bike which was my last bike which was a vtx 1300 honda and was carb and I changed the pipes out but did nothing else and it was fine. This bike is fuel injected and I dont have a clue

If the o2 sensor is still in the pipes , it is ok
if not have the adaptor fitted to the pipes and it will be ok
the sensor reports the gas composition to the ECM to adjust the air/fuel mixture
if the new pipes are pollution control compliant the adaptor should be already there
if they are not then you are achieving nothing with the different pipes but are actually decreasing fuel economy

2012 1700 classic vulcan exhaust

The VTX 1800 is fuel injected which requires the additional sensors (oxygen, throttle position, etc). However the VTX 1300 is carbureted, which takes the sensors out of the equation. If you are changing the exhaust with a:
Slip on-muffler
  • remove old mufflers, and slip on new ones
  • could add a better air filter, and you get a better sound, minimal power gain
Full Exhaust System
  • Remove old pipes from the cylinder heads (i.e. jugs) and use a rag to wipe off the seat and block the opening.
  • once both pipes have been pulled from the jugs, prep your new pipes with windex. Clean them well, finger oil and other gunk can cause bluing spots
  • Install the pipes, torque them in place, re-clean the pipes and use a chrome polish.
  • Purchase carburetor jetting kit, and either take it to a shop to do it, or you do it. If you have never re-jetted a carburetor before, I suggest you go to a reputable shop and get it done.
  • With the carb completed, a new air filter (high flow K&N is what I use - I have gone through the same exhaust system replacement procedure on my sled)
If you replace the exhaust without completing the carb/air cleaner, there is a very high probability that you will get backfires every time you ride. This will happen especially on deceleration, and will eventually blow out your valve seat, causing the engine to feel weak due to lost compression.

Hey guys, I have a 03 banshee that a just had completely rebuilt. Crank, pistons, pipes, the works. When I got it back it ran great. Then we noticed it seemed to not be getting enough fuel in the power...

1. How could you tell it wasn't getting enough fuel in the "power band?"..i.e. the upper rpm range...?
A "power band" is simply the RPM range where the engine makes the most power.. it is more pronounced on modified two-cycle engines.. it is NOT something you can buy or have "installed".
Adjusting the float level only accomplishes getting more (or less) fuel in the carb bowls to make it available to the jets. >>The JETS are what (and ONLY what) gets the fuel to the engine!<<
Spark plugs are read to tell whether their is a need for a jetting change.. if you do not know how to do this - STOP tinkering with your engine-PERIOD!
You need a factory shop manual to get the necessary specifications of the ignition system,,(resistance values)...then and only then can you adequately check the wiring and related components...
What is a hot rod crank? I have built numerous banshee racing engines.. just wondering about yours.. $3000 in an engine.. it should have come with 34mm carbs, new head, ported cylinders, etc...jetted by the person that built the engine... if it didn't you need a new engine builder!!!
Do you live near North Alabama??
