Use stuff called Naval Jelly to get the rust off. All you do is put it on and let it sit for a little bit like 5 or 10 mins and just wipe it off then i put peanut oil on it. It helps prevent the rust and works really good

I have a 2000 HD Roadking with a stock exhaust. How can I make the stock exhaust louder

The age-old Harley stigma:Louder is better.
We all love the Harley sound but to get loud you may sacrifice performance. There are numerous after-market pipes that will improve performance and change sound but you cannot really do both. Drag pipes are the loudest but would be lousy looking on your Roadking and you lose mid-range response. Pipes have to be tuned and it is an exacting science.
Best bet is to go to J&P Cycles website and look at all the pipes. Call their tech support and ask what they recommend.
Here is an excellent web site

Ive got a truimph bonneville t100 2008 exhust pipes tuening blue at the head and golden by the silences is this detremental?

It is 100% normal and caused by the exhaust heat. A pointer though; if you do any work to the bike and had touched the exhaust pipes, clean them thoroughly before running because you will end up with fingerprints on the pipes that will be extremely difficult if not impossible to remove. Safe riding.

Gas leaking out of small tube under Honda Valkiery. Could this be a float sticking open, if so best way to diagnose problem.

hi, it is more than likely float sticking,recently had the same problem, where the float needle had become worn as a result of old fuel sitting in the carbs, left a varnish on needles and seating, removed and cleaned, but still leaked best offf buying new needles first off as it is a big job to keep removing the carbs, if the bike runs ok, you could remove the overflow pipes from the float bowl identify which 1 is leaking and just replace the worn needle in that 1, as all the pipes go into 1 best find out which 1 it is so you know you have actualy fixed it when you put it back together, not a bad job to remove carbs though, any more help the name is paul, good luck

I want more sound from my pipes (australian specs).. how do i knock the restrictions out of the mufflers?

If you remove the baffles from your exhaust pipes the ignition timing and tuning will need attention or it will run rough.
I find it best to buy Screaming Eagle pipes or Slash Cut pipes, they have the correct resistance for backpressure but are very loud!!!!
If you wish to remove the baffles, the procedure will depend on the design of the pipes. There is usually a "pop" rivet somewhere underneath them that if you drill it out the baffles will pull out.
In the UK they fail their roadworthyness test if they have no baffles.
Loud pipes save lives, ride safe!

Exhaust pipes discolored

It may indicate that but that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it. If the bike sat for a long time while running, the exhaust can get hot enough to discolor the pipes...but that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with the motor. Improper carburetor settings can make the bike run lean (not enough fuel) which, in turn, can cause a hotter than normal exhaust and discolor the pipes...again, this does not indicate there is anything wrong with the motor. Ask if the pipes are stock or after-market. After-market pipes are a minefield for motorcycle riders. When the manufacturer puts the stock pipes on, they are tuned to the motor to give peak performance which usually results in little to no bluing of the pipes. Aftermarkets can throw the tune off and discoloration is the result. Ask the seller if there have been any changes to the bike...such as after-market pipes, rejetting the carburetor, changing the intake, etc. Most likely the seller will say yes, there have been some changes made. Please note: THIS DOES NOT MEAN THE BIKE IS BAD OR THE ENGINE IS WRONG.

Removing baffles in my1300 vtx c honda ?

it is not hard to do but it would be best to get the drag pipes. there are a host of problems to think of though. you will need to rejet the carbs to accomodate the free up in back pressure. you will need the tourque slipins for the pipes. they will fit right into the pipes where they connect at the heads. the 1300 is going to be super loud without the baffels. like getting stopped by the law loud. it would be best to get a tuned drag setup from a dealer as to get the sound you are looking for as well as keep it below jonnie laws radar.

Pipes cleaning

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.
