Hi .... This is a common occurence, esp'ly with aftermarket pipes, where they are made from a single 'skin'. You can buy a special cream/polish solely to remove the discolouring. Make sure both spark plugs are a light tan colour which shows the mixture is OK. An old british bike trick was to wrap thick copper wire along the down pipe to disapate the heat.

2000 650 vstar with hardkrome pipes and hypercharger. What would be the proper main jet and pilot jet sizes


Use a DYNAJET kit & go with the directions. Or check with the Hypercharger manufacture for correct jetting. But you will still need different needles & main jets for those pipes.

The ignition timing has to be reset as the pipes you have fitted have a different back pressure than the originals. Take it for a tune up and feel the difference. It would be a shame to not get maximum performance having bought some really good pipes!

1100 Dragstar Fitting Straight Pipes


We have changed a few bikes from standard pipes to drag pipes. Their is a few considerations here, sea level or at what altitude, how much back pressure. so my suggestion rather take it before fitting the pipes to someone with a dyno, run and record the test, then have the pipes fitted, and let the same shop to the test again on there dyno, they will then know what to do with the jetting, because you should achieve better results with your new pipes.

My honda shadow sabre the pipes trun blue


Motorcycles come standard with double wall pipes. The inner pipe turns blue and the outer chrome pipe stays nice. In a stock exhaust system you rarely get blued pipes. Unless, you put on your choke, start your bike, answer the phone, and forget your bike is running (or you start driving and just forget to turn off your choke.). Then you will blue your double wall pipe. Bluing is generally caused by too rich of a mixture or fuel burning in the exhaust pipe. If you put on an aftermarket pipe(usually single wall construction) and did not coat the inside of the muffler pipe, the pipe will generally blue the first time you drive the cycle. An old dealer trick is to replace blued aftermarket pipes with new aftermarket pipes (makes the bike look great on the showroom floor). Again if they don't coat the inside of the pipe with exhaust paint or a special coatings usually about $35 the pipes will blue before the customer gets home. If the bluing is mild you could try a product called" Blue Away"that might help, but should not be used regularly as it takes off a little bit of the chrome each time.

Is it neccessary to restrict 650 dragstar to 25kw


Orig power is 40 HP (29.2Kw) If that is required, it can be done by restricting top speed, exhaust pipe and/or chokeing the carb abilities but will take the fun out of riding big bikes..
