  • Vance and Hines Longshot HS

    I am considering adding a set of Vance and Hines Longshot HS to my stock 2004 Road Star Midnight Silverado. I anticipate having to re-jet the carburetor, at least. I am new to re-jetting and to this bike. Can you offer some suggestions on exactly what I need and maybe some suggestions on upgrades that will enhance performance, etc.?

    Thank you in advance

    I'm pretty sure you don't have to rejet for pipes alone.
    I would recommend keeping the spiral baffles in them though.
    The back pressure they provide is beneficial to your low end torque.

      I talked to my mechanic today and he said as long as I leave the baffles in and leave the rest stock I am good to go. He has a set of Cobra long shots on his 2005 Road Star and he never re-jetted it. My mechanic has been working on these things for decades. Thanks for you input.

        Well, there ya have it. Your "mechanic" should join and teach some of us something about these bikes. I've been here 14 years, and haven't learned a thing.


        Wherever you go in life, ride there if at all possible.
