My 2002 VTX 1800R w/ Jardine Long straights. There are no baffles in the pipes. I've done the Pair valve/desmog mod., It has a pcIII, and has the CA emissions removed. Also installed is the Kuryakyn HyperCharger Pro.Nice and loud.
VTX1300 Pair Valve Mod
This is a video of the Pair Valve mod for the VTX1300. This is also the
same process for the 1800 with some slight mods to this process. For more

2005 Honda VTX 1800 F dynorun
M&M Choppers brought their Dyno to the Great Bend Biker
Rally, decided to see what kind of numbers my bike would pull on the Dyno. HP 91.6, Torque
111.2. Not bad...I wonder what an aftermarket intake and power commander
would do :-)
VTX 1300 HK 3" Pipes Exhaust
This is a video clip I made of what my pipes sound like both from behind
the bike & while riding.
They are Hard Krome (HK) 3" long pipes.
A pair valve removal is basically removing the Cadillac converter in a
motorcycle. Just allows for less gurgling and deaccel pop on aftermarket
I did not install an aftermarket air filter & I did not rejet the bike.
I highly recommend checking out the forums at www.vtxoa.com in order to
read tons about VTX's and for links and comments about other vtx
Also on that site you will find VTX Rider Groups for each state which will
bring together fellow riders for those who really want to hear what other
Exhausts sound like.
Enjoy! And thanks for the great comments.

Sideburner Exhaust on a VTX 1800R
TURN IT UP! The first clip is with the SmartPartz baffle installed. At
about 1:20 I remove the baffle after removing the screws. Toggle the slider
to compare the sound. Thanks for looking.
