V&H Power Duals for 114 M8 to Help With Heat?
« on: January 12, 2021, 03:54:06 PM »

Hey, I have a 17 Limited CVO 114 M8 and my wife complains about how hot the right side is.

After a fair amount of research and the dealer's recommendation, and I'm seriously thinking of changing the head pipe to the V&H pwr Duals plus have it tuned.

This removes the cats and sounds like this will drop the heat 250 degrees, plus it should sound nicer and have more performance.

Does anyone have this and can give me their opinion of what you think about them?  This will be pricey so I'd like to hear from someone who has them before pulling the trigger.

Hope I got this in the correct place and let me know of any questions of info I didn't include!

I had that header on a 2015 SGS and liked it, definitely a nice header, you may want to check out Fullsac, he makes a head pipe that will look stock and you use stock heat shields, also makes baffles that fit your stock mufflers, then you can get the TTS tuner as well, there is a lot of posts on here about Fullsac.

I have that head pipe with 2.25" Fullsac baffles. No problem with heat at all.  I'm in Florida. Great sound and performance too. Stuart

I run the Fullsac MX head pipe and 2.25 baffles on my 19 CVO RG, its built to 130 inches.  Does a great job for heat management and power.

I run the older Fullsac DX head pipe and 2.25 baffles on my 13 CVO King.  Really got rid of the heat.

Power duals with Torquer 450s here, much better performance, added the FP3 also, and less heat.  Love that Vance and Hines music.

If your just upgrading for heat and not performance, a cheaper option would be to try the coolflow can from HD. I am going to put on on in the spring. On my ride.

Oh, I want the performance and better sound as well!  I've seen the fan but am not keen to add it if the exhaust change can help.  This is my dream bike so I'm willing to spend what I need to make it run good, be cooler and sound good.  Thanks for your post!

We had V&H Power Duals and S&S Grand National slip-ons installed straight from the dealership on our 2020 with a stage 1 EPA compliant flash. The bike still got so hot that my fiancé's legs would get red marks if we were stuck at a light for a while. She eventually had to prop her legs up in my lap to keep from getting burned. It ran hotter than my old high compression 124".

I eventually had the cam replaced and had it dyno tuned. Now we could probably sit at a stop light for an hour and not feel the amount of heat it was previously putting out. Changing the head pipe, adding the cool flow fan, etc....Things like that will probably help some. But those are treating symptoms and not addressing the problem. Getting the bike comprehensively tuned will not only help with a better running, and possibly more fuel efficient bike, but I guarantee you will feel the heat reduction. My fiancé knows nothing about motorcycles other than how to hop on back and enjoy the ride. She noticed a huge difference the day we got it back from tuning. The show-stopper would be if you were still in warranty and wanted to keep that.

Hope this helps.

I have a set of V&H Power Duals in black on my 2019 CVO Street Glide that I am about to remove from my bike.  I am upgrading them to a D&D Billet Cat Full Exhaust system.  They are great pipes, have less than 5K miles on them, and are in immaculate condition.  Shoot me a PM if you are interested in buying them.

Thanks, but my bike is a chrome beast so the black just ain't gonna work!  Good luck in selling them!
