Vance and Hines CS ONE?? Anyone??
« on: June 04, 2011, 12:51:52 am »
So, starting to do a little research on Exhaust.....I really like the looks and sound of the CS ONE but I can't find on here anything substantial about it. Any of you folks have any input on your favorites?

Anything on the CS ONE?

They had a group buy on them a while back. A lot of them came damaged. But other than that, I have heard nothing but positive about them. And guys that have them seem to like them!

Do they have a cs one that fits an 08?  I have only seen 09 to 11 available.

The 08-09 OEM cans are identical! So it will fit!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The CS One is the best looking can on the market. It sounds fantastic too. Lemme see if I can provide all my links. I ran the group buy about a year and a half ago, we all paid right around $400 shipped. I still love my CS One.

Yeah, it's amazing how the can that looks the most like the OEM can, can also be one of if not the best looking aftermarket can!

I haven't heard one myself, but from what I've been told, they are a bit loud.

They are not that loud at highway speeds, but at wide open throttle they sound amazing.

I just placed my order today for V&H CS1. $449.00 with shipping at Motorcycle Superstore. I plan on installing it myself. Is there anything I should know about the installation. Thanks.

I agree. I thought the price gap was much wider. But for $20, I would have done the same thing! I don't want to have to wait for who knows how long, just to save a few dollars!

Scott, I put a Vance & Hines on my 2010 C14 and love it, shaved a bunch of weight, added power and sounds great. It was easy to install and looks awesome. I would recommend it.

NOthing worse than finding that price difference right after placing an order.   But apples to apples only being $20 difference, better just to get it and get it on the bike.

I just bought mine at the local dealer today for $450 in black.  Can't wait to put it on.  The pic on this side and the youtube videos convinced me.

I like the black also. Has anyone bought the insert that is supposed to quiet it some? I'd like to get some feedback on that item.

I'd love to have a CS One if they could make it as quiet as the OEM pipe.

I recieved the following reply from Vance and Hines today after I sent them an email asking them if they could produce a quieter version of the CsOne:

Quote
Fred,
    At the moment there are no plans of making something quiet, but we do take customer’s request in to consideration.  I will forward this to our R&D department as a request and will keep you on our email list to inform you if we do come out with something.

Hector Montoya 

I'd encourage you to send them an email and let them know you are interested in a quieter slip on for the Concours.

let me see if i get this, the innerds need replacing regularly too ?? not sure if repacking is the correct term, but there is maintenance on replacement slipons ??
aside from removing the potato launcher, what gains are noticeable for the effort ?? i ride moderate to aggressive, but easier on the throttle.

thanks for the time,
Joel
