SOURCE: i need to know if i have to re jet my 98 yamaha

You can try driving the bike after the install. After you change the exhaust it will run lean. You may want to coat the inside of the mufflers with an anti blu-ing agent or your headers will discolor. If when test driving you notice the bike has developed a flat spot in the acceleration curve you will want to re-jet the carburetors. The easiest way is to buy a jet kit from Cobra, Dyna-jet,etc.($80-$100). Other wise you can just buy several sets of larger jets and change them out till you are happy with the way it runs. Most people that change the mufflers and put in a jet kit, also install a K&N air filter .
More air flow + fuel flow = more exhaust flow (more power)

I'm installing vance and hines longshots on my 98 1100 aero. The rear header is not lining up with the muffler.


Did you leave any mounting bolts loose while you assembled it? They most likely should be left loose until its fully assembled.
Even better, email Vance&Hines and ask them. It is their product and they stand behind it and help you.

I have a 2000 Honda VT1100 Sabre Shadow. It's got aftermarket Vance and Hines pipes. It continues to have a backfire when moving up through the gears. I've had the jets (and K&N filter and plugs)...


When you installed the Vance and Hines pipes did you use new gaskets? Popping and backfiring is often caused by leaking copper o-rings in the head to head pipe connection , or head pipe to muffler gasket. Sealing the system will prevent oxygen igniting the unburned fuel in the exhaust pipe. Hopefully , this is all you need to stop the popping.

Engine dosent stay on


not nessesarily.
changing the exhaust system usually requires rejetting the carb.
a different exhaust pipe will give/make the exhaust back pressure change. you should of gotten a paper with instructions saying something about changing the jetting.
