    Southampton Bike Night tomorrow if you're at Southampton Harley tomorrow afternoon anyway. I go most weeks travelling via the Avon Causeway, Bransgore emerging at the Cat and Fiddle Pub and then via Lyndhurst, it's a great run out Thursday evenings there and back.

    Anyway, I gave up and have put my stocks back on and I'm off to HARLEY to have them fit them fit the V&C for me.

    I've just wondered if it matters what way the stock exhaust are put on? I haven't had proper bike in years and when I started her up, I saw some clear spurting liquid coming out from the end of the front exhaust onto the holding bracket. I'm hoping you'll tell me this is correct, if not I'll have to swap them over again


    I'm down in Dorset so looking forward to meeting up with other Harley Riders.
    I've got the standard pipes on my 2016 Iron, never had anything like what you are describing coming out of my exhaust. Your HD dealership should sort it out. Hope you enjoy your bike.

    This event for me has outgrown itself. Attracts too many idiots riding about thinking they are Karl Fogarty. I did however manage to get Bike of the Night at the first event this year back in April. Southampton Bike Night is better but it's the ride out there that makes it for me!

    Hiya,

    I fitted vance and hines slash cut slip ons to my 17 plate iron 2 days ago. I initally had the same issue because of the gasket used to make up the difference in the reduced header pipe stuck out to much and meant that the slip ons did not line up with the exhaust bracket.

    Simple fix was the studden collar on the gasket that sticks out from the exhaust can be removed with pliers resulting in it being able to be pushed in further and ends up fitting perfect.

    Hope this helps and saves you paying someone else to do it.

    All done and the sound is amazing... A 'Big' thank you to Tom and Dave at Harley Southampton who were superb.

    I asked them about the issues I'd had and they said you do have to mess about with the exhaust as you did jlennox89.

    So now for lots of riding and thanks for everyones help

    I've just noticed that since the stage 1 has ben done i have lost my gear ratio on the display, it only shows the rpm now.

    Any ideas why and would the upgrade cause this?
