So you finally went out and pulled the trigger on a new fly-by-wire bagger. And after a few miles you added some stuff just to get it how you like it. Maybe you put on a comfy seat, some extra lights here and there and just the right amount of chrome.
Then you got down to business and put on a free-flowing air cleaner, a performance motorcycle exhaust and a fuel-injection controller. Now you’ve got a sharp ride — and a runner to boot! But if you’re looking for a few inexpensive ways to dial in that new-found power and set yourself apart from your buddies, you should check out this dynamic duo from Vance and Hines.
The first is an old hot rod trick wrapped up in a neat package. The Vance & Hines Header Wrap Kit comes with 25 feet of black composite fiberglass header wrap and six locking stainless-steel ties with laser cut logos to help exhaust those hot gases and enable that motor to breathe just a bit easier. Not only does it work great, but it looks tough. And for under seventy bucks, you can’t go wrong.
The second way to put some serious “snap” back into your bike is the new Vance & Hines Throttlepak Throttle Management System. Its patent-pending design was specifically designed to take the lag out of the fly-by-wire bike’s throttle response. It installs in minutes and you’ll notice the difference instantly. This gem will transform your lazy throttle action into a lightning-fast response with a razor’s edge control of your fire-breathing machine. Check out the video we shot at the Cincinnati V-Twin show. What you’ll see is Vance & Hines’ John Potts showing off the specifics of the Throttle Pak and offering us a sneak peek at a new bagger race exhaust.
