I have a 1996 yamaha royalstar tour classic 1300 and i would like to get some loud slash cut or straight pipes for it ,ive been looking to no avail can you help Thanks Jeff

Check Tucker Rocky. They are wholesale but I think their web site gives a list of dealers.

Fuel leak

The carb/s are flooding , you will have to check the float pin and the float, a good clean with compressed air should do the job, check too the fuel line and the fuel filter.
