Any changes you make to the exhaust system will alter the sound the bike produces. The more you cut baffles,and open up the exhaust, the louder it will get. What you do alter to a greater extent,is the state of tune of the motorcycle. Any changes to exhaust or inlet plumbing will require a retune of the engine to suit the modifications. This can be subtle to dramatic. Opening up exhausts can often rob low end power where exhaust port scavaging is relient on some back pressure for maximum effect.
Best to work directly with an engine tuner to do the mods that are known you can get away with, or buy aftermarket prebuilt pipes that have a known previously tested state of tune. Nothing worse than doing something, that then costs money to put back the way it was on finding out it didnt work as well as was hoped.. Hope this has helped you steer your custom mods a little. I can say with certainty, that I have ventured to do what you are doing many times in the past, and it has always cost me more money in tuning and... and well more parts :) Cheers

i have done a few timing chains, you should go get a manual so you can go back and reference when you need to. I can tell you this "do not" move the cam or crank when the belt or chain is off. Hope it helps

Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic lubricants, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.
I don't have a service manual on your particular bike so just check oil quantity with the dealer when you go to buy the new oil filter. Don't forget to lube the cables and chain when doing the oil change.

If you haven't gotten an answer yet, here's how to check the coolant level in your '01 Volusia. The coolant tank is located on the bottom left side of the engine. There is a sight slot cut in the cover that will allow you to view the level. I preferr to take the cover off (3 screws) to make sure I'm seeing the marks on the coolant tank and to check the color of the coolant. It's an easy check even with taking the covers off (about 15 minutes). If the coolant is low, or discolored, you can make the necessary adjustments.
