I enjoy riding on vtx 05 s, but pipes too loud. Hearing Sensitive rider wants to replace longshots with stock exhaust 1300 2005 s question on carb though

the longshots were set up with a hypercharger when purchased, runs good as is.

Question is: if I install stock pipes and leave on hypercharger will this require any mods to the carb setting? I suspect so but possibly someone has experience with this issue.

Thanks for any assistance, Jim

It is really impossible to predict. Your only option is to change the pipes and see what happens.

As long as the carb is properly setup for the Hypercharger, you shouldn't have to mess with the carb when you change pipes. But as @Vinish said, the only way to be sure is to go ahead and change the pipes.

Remember to get new exhaust gaskets, and be sure to remove the old ones (they may not look like they are there, and are a pain to remove). Also, don't mess with the carb settings until you have properly seated the new exhaust (may take a few hot cold cycles with retorquing to 17 ft lbs). This may fool you into thinking it is the carb.

I have a stock exhaust from an 05 1300R sitting in my garage. Complete, brackets, and all. You can have it if you pick it up or pay shipping. PM me.
