    Default Vance And Hines Power Dual Exhaust For 2010-2012 Harley Baggers

    I'm not a big V&H fan for choppers but for baggers they are a decent option.


    For your Harley FL, Power Duals integrates an exclusive Vance & Hines Power Chamber hidden behind a contoured heat shield that generates more horsepower and torque than stock. This new right side design eliminates the heat issues on the left side for the passenger, routing hot exhaust gases below the foot peg and protecting vital engine components and side covers from heat damage. For an even more complete performance package, pair Power Duals with any of the Vance & Hines slip-on mufflers, Fuelpak fuel management and air filter kits Duke or Drak. Power Duals is fitted with oxygen sensor ports making it a seamless power upgrade from stock. MSRP $599.95. Vance & Hines.

    I'm not a fan of the power duals regardless of horsepower claims. Lots of people also complain that these drag the ground something terrible. The dresser duals however look better,sound way better and really not much difference in horsepower loss/gain. I have the dresser duals on mine and can't complain one bit.

    Why aren't you a fan of V&H pipes on a chopper Chris? Don't know a hell of a lot about the differences in brands...just curious.

    I hear a lot about dragging with the power duals, and I have a bike which I want to keep a classic look on, so at that point if you want a 2-1-2 system, your choices are Fuelmoto and Fullsac. They both allow you to keep your stock heat shields. Fuelmoto's 2-1-2 offering has ceramic coating inside and out, Fullsac has only exterior coating, both great pipes.

    Moe. Every set of v&h on a big dog seem to rattle them to pieces. The most popular was the big radious. They are known for both breaking the heat shield clamp points and, most noted, spitting out their baffles. The weld for the baffle nut would break and pop!

    Same baffle problem even occurred on cavemans Honda on the v&h 2:1 somin... Can't remember the name.

    Yeah....I can see this happening Chris.. Can't say I was completely ignorant in the possibility of things rattling apart. When I first start up that's when I get the most vibration, settles down fairly nicely after that. Really need to keep an eye on this! I still have my supertrapp stockers. I do like the way they look but the sound??.......sounds like a popcorn fart!

    You may have either one of the things I listed broken.

    Do you have full baffles? A good trick is to remove them, cut them in half and put them back in.

    Didn't alter the pipes in any way. Only thing I had to do was make my own mounting bracket to fit the V&H big radius. Brackets still on preety tight.Clamps are tight and unbroken. Don't know about the baffles. If I were to take them out and cut them in half, wouldn't that make the pipes louder? Don't want them any louder than they are now for sure.

    OH yeah cutting the baffle makes em louder... much more.

    The clamps could be tight but no longer securely welded to the heat shields. The only way to properly check is to remove the heat shields.

    When it gets a little warmer I'm going to give it a thorough inspection. As far as baffles, no way do I want it any louder.I can wake up the dead when I start the bike in the garage now.
