v star 1300 aftermarket exhaust
hello everyone. I recently bought my first v star. Its a 2007 vstar 1300. specifically my bike has what i understand to be a factory 2 into 1 exhaust set up. I had looked a couple of royal stars, and liked them mainly because of the (what I call) dual exhaust. Meaning that there is an exhaust pipe on both sides of the bike. I recently visited my local yamaha dealer to inquire about an aftermarket "duel exhaust" set up. I was told that unless i were to do a major custom exhaust there is no setup available for the vstar 1300 as "duels". Something about the way the exhaust ports are located on the piston cans. My question is....how different are the vstar 1300, and the vstar 1300 royal star. Would the exhaust be a feasible swap. Could i buy a set up for a royal star and put them on my v star.

Thanks for reading, all opinions valued

RE: v star 1300 aftermarket exhaust
One thing to keep in mind is that the 1300 is "programmed" around a 2 into 1 exhaust - this makes a difference on exhaust scavenging. A true dual exhaust doesn't scavenge the same way and you will likely have to make some significant changes to the fuel and ignition programming to get good performance.

When I went from the factory exhaust on my 650 (which has dual mufflers but a crossover) to a V&H exhaust that does not have the crossover I lost a noticeable amount of low-end torque (though I think I picked up a little better high end power and mileage). Since the 650 is carbureted there isn't much I can do about the change and overall I like it with the aftermarket pipes (it is geared way too low anyway).

RE: v star 1300 aftermarket exhaust
yes, i understand that there would mostly likely need to be some retuning done, and i'd probably have my local dealer do that,......but am still curious as to whether it is even a feasible parts swap. Its hard to believe that the 1300 v star and the 1300 royal star are that different.

RE: v star 1300 aftermarket exhaust
They are completely different bikes with little in common - different frame, different drive methods (shaft vs. belt), and the Royal Star is a V4 engine while the 1300 is a V-Twin.

Look on youtube for true duals exhaust by kentdidit. nice looking set, but expensive.
