    Honda Valkyrie pipes

    My latest bike purchase a 1998 Honda Valkyrie, cool ride just wish it was a little louder. Anyone got some advise on possible different pipes?

    Re: Honda Valkyrie pipes

    Taunis - first, welcome to the forums - what part of the country are you from?

    Secondly (I am sure you have heard this before) , whenever you change your pipes or intake you need to check to ensure you don't get too lean - this may require a jet (carv) or re-mapping (injection) adjustment.

    following is a pretty good article you may want to read  http://community.jpcycles.com/articles/tech-articles/pages/carburetor-jetting-and-efi-adjustment.aspx

    The first tool out of the box should be the "book"  Geeked
