99 Vstar custom for me was a good riding, handling bike with decent power ranges :) But its missing that big bike sound and has weak spots in the acceleration ranges with wimpy deceleration.. Vance & Hines Cruisers to the rescue :) Sound is awesome !!!; Rumbles in town like the bad boy should. Performance has smoother range and the boy even jumps a bit on pick up now .. Varoooom.. Has that sound if ya know what I mean :D I could not have made a better upgrade.

This is the second set I have purchased. I liked the first ones so much that when I traded bikes I had to have them again. Installed them myself. Hardest part was getting the factory mufflers off. They sound killer on a 2013 Heritage.

I had a set put on my 2010 ultra,and a year later the chrome started flaking off the end caps. so i called v&h about the problem.they told me that they knew that they had a problem with the end caps,and that i should understand that it is hard to make chrome stay on aluminum,which is what the end caps are made of.I told them all i had to understand is that I paid over $700.00 Dollars for junk...Then they told me that they had a program where i could send in the end caps and i would have to pay the shipping.that they for $50.00 per end cap,would send me new end caps...I told them that was unexceptional, After about another twenty minutes on the phone,He told me to take pictures of the end caps and send them to his e mail.he called me back and said he would be sending me a set of new end caps no charge.So i asked him if they got the problem solved, he said no.So i said these will start flaking in about a year... he said yes probably will....So i said it's to bad you are not making these mufflers any more because you could not correct the problem,, he said we are still making and selling them...REALLY.... BUYER BEWARE.

Put on 2010fatbob. Absolutely outstanding pipes. Got rid of the catalytic convertor, runs so much cooler . Sounds great!

Prompt delivery, easy install. Keep everything loose until it is all on the bike. The pipes look good and sound good. Installed on 1999 Suzuki Intruder 1500. I ordered 2 Jet kits and discovered that 1 kit provides jets for both carbs. You will not be disappointed with V&H Longshots. Quality product.

These fit my 2013 Dyna Wide Glide perfectly. The system is "tastefully loud", and sounds great! I have lane shared past the Highway Patrol a few times - no problem. I was initially concerned about the fit, because I have the Kuryakn 3" forward control extension kit installed, and I knew the brake linkage might not clear the exhaust pipe. I was relieved to discover that it does clear (by an 1/8"). Whew! Contrary to what Vance & Hines says, you can remove the oil dipstick without loosening the heat shield, but you have to wear a glove, since your hand will be very close to very hot things. I thought the instructions could have been a bit clearer about installing the new bracket, but that's a minor nit, and there are lots of YouTube videos out there showing the process.
