Hi Riders ;.Some may not know that the vt 750 pipes do fit the VT 400 . Far as i,m aware from 09 models up . Now the only difference is in the actual outlet .The 400 has a smaller tube than the 750 creating more pressure . Some have wanted new aftermarket pipes but cant afford . So Same with me at the time so i had mine done out professionally and it made a stack of difference .Involved taking out the rear baffles but re substituting a bit more for back pressure but with a larger hole again .Pic below . A hole saw mod will take all of this out leaving little if any back pressure . This was measured at 96 dec. Has quite a good rumble . Nearly as good as the V&H Cruzers. Well all most
Now iff you can get a set of 750 pipes and put them on your 400 ,just that alone will give you a bit more pulling power and a slight deeper rumble than stock. This is because of the difference at the exhaust end as shown the pics below . Hope this is of some interest This is all 3 different pipes ,stock 400 then stock 750 then my moded 750 Cheers Ray
Thanks Ray, didn't realise there was a difference between the 750 and the 400 pipes I too couldn't afford V and H so I ended up drilling 6 X 10ml holes in the baffles around the central hole, gave it a good sound and no apparent loss of power
george: Hi Gordon. You should post you question on the Honda Shadow Mods board in the Bike Talk area. Easier for people to reply there.
