REMOVING THE STOCK MUFFLERS 1. Loosen the bolt on the pinch clamp at the front end of each muffler. 2. Remove the two bolts that mount the muffler to the mounting bar. Repeat this step on the opposite muffler. 3. Remove the stock mufflers and set them aside. Note: It may be necessary to use a penetrating lubricant to loosen the mufflers from the head pipes. INSTALLING YOUR NEW VANCE & HINES SLIP-ON EXHAUST SYSTEM 1. Remove the two 5/16″ flanged head bolts from the bracket that is welded to the backside of each muffler. Attach one of the mounting brackets (supplied) to each muffler, using two of the 5/16″ flanged head bolts (removed earlier), leaving them loose at this time. When the bracket is mounted correctly on the muffler, the single hole end should point down when the muffler is mounted to the bike. 2. Be sure there is a muffler clamp (supplied) over the front (notched end) of each muffler. 3. Slip the muffler onto the stock head pipe, mount the muffler to the rear most hole of the stock mounting bar, using one of the stock bolts and tighten. Repeat this step on the opposite muffler. Note: When installed correctly, the Vance & Hines logo on the muffler should face outwards. 4. Tighten the two muffler clamps. 5. Tighten the two 5/16″ flange bolts on each muffler bracket. 6. Wipe any finger prints or oil off any chrome parts of the exhaust system before starting the motorcycle. 7. Be sure to tighten all hardware before starting your motorcycle. RE-JETTING INSTRUCTIONS Re-jetting the carburetor will result in realizing the “full” potential of this performance exhaust system. Vance & Hines offers jet kits for most applications

REMOVING THE STOCK EXHAUST SYSTEM 1. Loosenthe mounting bolt and pinch clamp on both left and right hand mufflers. 2. Loosenthe clamp on the crossover tube, located between the two mufflers. 3. Remove the two nuts that mount the front head pipe flange to the cylinder head. 4. Remove the two nuts that mount the rear head pipe flange to the cylinder head. 5. Remove the head pipes using a twisting motion to break the seal at the muffler and to clear the cylinder head. Note : If the exhaust coupler gaskets did not remain in the mufflers, remove them from the head pipes at this time. These coupler gaskets will not be reused in your new exhaust system. 6. Remove the mounting bolt from the left hand muffler. Remove the muffler, again using a twisting motion to seperate the crossover tube and set the muffler aside. (Save the stock mounting hardware for reuse). 7. Repeat step #6 on the the right hand muffler. Set the muffler aside. INSTALLING YOUR NEW VANCE & HINES EXHAUST SYSTEM 1. Check the stock exhaust gaskets to be sure they are in good shape. If you have any doubts as to their condition, replace them. 2. Reinstall the stock head pipes to the engine. Note : Leave the flange nuts loose at this time. 3. Remove the mufflers from their boxes. There are a left and right hand muffler in this system. To define the difference between the left and right mufflers, check the bracket that is welded to the back side of the muffler. Each muffler is stamped with it’s own part number. Part # D500 is the RIGHT muffler and Part # D550 is the LEFTmuffler. 4. Install a three hole mounting bracket to each of the mufflers. Slide one dog bone shaped nut plate under the bracket that is welded to the backside of each muffler. Attach the mounting bracket using two of the 5/16 flange head bolts (supplied), leave them loose at this time. Note : Each muffler bracket has a number stamped on it, #179 bracket is for the left hand muffler and #180 is for the right hand muffler. When the brackets are mounted correctly, the end of the bracket with the single hole should point to the inlet end (small end) of the muffler. Refer to figure 1.

Vengeance Maxis • Vengeance Raven • Vengeance Banshee • Vengeance Whiplash • Hotrod Drifter • Hotrod CalChop • Hotrod Teacher • Hotrod Bone Shifting Gears Starting off and changing gears requires coordination of the clutch and throttle and gearshift lever. If you don’t do things right, the amount of control you have over the bike is lessened. To start off, pull in the clutch, shift into first gear, roll on the throttle a little, and ease out the clutch. You will become familiar with the friction zone (that’s where the clutch begins to take hold and move the bike), and you add a bit more throttle. You don’t want to stall the engine, nor do you want to over-rev it. There’s a sweet spot in there; find it. Shift while traveling in a straight line. Shifting in a curve is not good practice, and something to be avoided. Become familiar with the sound of your engine, so you can tell when you should shift without looking at your instruments. When you downshift to a lower gear, you should (in one swift, smooth movement) be able to squeeze the clutch, rev the engine a little to let it catch the lower gear smoothly, and shift down. When you come to a stop in traffic, leave the bike in first gear with the clutch disengaged (just in case you want to accelerate out of there in a hurry). Who knows what may be coming up behind you. Braking Don’t ever forget: The front brake on your motorcycle can supply as much as 70 percent or more of your stopping power. The single most important thing you can learn about braking is to use that front brake every single time you want to slow down. Turning When you are riding along the road, you lean a motorcycle into a turn. Learning to lean is an essential part of riding a motorcycle. It is a normal function of the bike when you are changing its path of travel – and quite different from turning the steering wheel of your car. To get the motorcycle to lean in a normal turn, press the handlebar in the direction of the turn and maintain slight pressure on that handlebar to take you smoothly through that particular turn. In other words: press right to go right; press left to go left. Your instincts to keep the motorcycle on a smooth path while keeping it from falling over usually take care of this without you even noticing it. (Demonstrate to yourself how a motorcycle moves by pressing a handlebar slightly while traveling in a straight line. The motorcycle will move in the direction of the handlebar you pushed.) • Slow down before you enter the turn; look as far ahead as possible through the turn. • Keep your feet on the pegs, and grip the gas tank with your knees. • Lean with the motorcycle; don’t try to sit perpendicular to the road while the motorcycle is leaning over. • Keep an even throttle through the turn, or even accelerate a little bit. Checking the Bike before the Ride It’s not fun to have things go wrong on a motorcycle, but if you spend a minute before you go off on a ride, you can increase the chances that nothing will.
