From what I can find online it seems to be performance pipes so I'd say boost. (Of course leaving the stock baffles in.) Stock VTX1300R is rated at 75 HP so you're probably looking at about 80-85 HP depending on how generously you rejet. If you've gotta pass emissions and don't wanna rejet before each time I'd say about 78-80 if you go full race to heck with fuel efficiency I want power you could probably pull 85 with the stock carb.

I have a Dometic 2913 and like many others it works fine on both AC and DC but has stopped cooling on propane. I cleaned the flue, the flue baffle, the burner and the jet and still no cooling. Any other...

Was the end of the spiral flue baffle burned up? If it was it could be disrupting the air flow which will not allow it to reach the proper temperature. Does the flame stay lit or does it go out after a while? If it is going out after a while the thermo-switch that detects high heat may be shutting it down due to the flame being too hot. Fire prevention safety...

How much space should i leave between loops on roof tape?

1st You must know that you can attach the heat tape by spiral wrapping, or by straight run (in- line with the pipe); held temporarily with a few pieces of tape. Of course you will need to apply an insulating wrap (in either case).
The straight run gives the least heat per foot but covers more pipe. The tighter (closer) the spiral wrap of the heat tape loops, the more heat per foot but the shorter the coverage. If the pipe is 1/2" or 3/4" DIAM. then a straight run is sufficient. If 1" to 1 1/4" then a very wide spiral. If 1 1/2 to 2" then a closer loop spiral. In no case should the loops touch each other nor be closer than 3/4" to each other. And avoid having the heat tape cross itself at valves, elbows, etc. PLease note that this is all based on winter temps of 0 degree F. or above and using normal 1" THICK WRAP INSULATION. If you have temps down to -30 or so, then give minimum 2" thick insulation.
Good Luck Macgivor.

Have 07 xl1200c sportster how can i make exhaust louder have standard pipes on dont want it to loud just more of a deep thud money tight dont want to keep with original pipes for now

Screamin Eagle mufflers work well. I've been running a set on a Dyna Wide Glide for years. They're not as loud as straight pipes. They come with removable baffles, I think. It's been years since I've mess with them but they used to. Also, some pipe manufacturers made "slip on" muffler replacements. They're much better for performance too as they present the engine with a bit of backpressure that the drag pipes do not.

Good luck

I'm looking at buying a 2001 Yamaha v star1100 with 24000 miles on it for $2300. he said the previous owner took the baffles out and now it has a tinking sound and said its probaly the lifter is it...

Your engine does not have hydraulic lifters. It is a dual OHC ( Over Head Cam ) setup and has an adjustable valve lash. It is not to costly to have a shop reset the valve lash. I strongly suggest you have a dealer's service department inspect the bike before you buy it. The factory pipes do not have removable baffles. Know one thing; most dealers will not work on a bike over 10 years old. Yours is almost 10. Parts availability is the problem. $450 is the approximate parts cost to replace both pipes. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Pulsar 150 - Some knocking after i got a service 3 days back...

It could be the exhaust baffles which are in the exhaust pipe tht have given away, you can remove the exhaust pipe assy and get it cut underneath and get the baffles electric welded..or rather spot welded and weld the exhaust back but the chrome will burn off and rust may thn take over ..or unless you paint tht area black( heat ressistant paint.),or better off is to replace the complete exhaust pipe assy.
Hope this helps!
