    Can someone who has the V&H installed tell me if the part of the exup that you leave on the bike after installation is visable and if so how does it look thanks for any help

    Sorry I don't have a picture to show you. Visible, yes...noticeable, no. If a person knows where and what to look for they will see it, but 99% of folks won't notice anything.

    The answer is you don't leave the Exup on the bike. Everything is removed except the O2 sensor which can in theory be used without adding a PC111 , but you will probably (and should) add it to re-calibrate the air/fuel mixture. In that case the O2 sensor is just used to plug the hole.

    Did you pull the exup motor out from inside the frame? Cause from what I understood if you pulled that out you would get an error code...yes, no, maybe? The actual exup valve and cables come off with the stock pipe, but the motor that drives it is inside the frame, and should remain on the bike...according to VH anyway...yes, no, maybe?

    I read in another post that the exup motor has to stay. If removed you will get an error code. The dealer installed my Speedstar straights and left all exup equipment including the actuation cables installed. The exup motor and cables sit behind the battery. All was tucked in very nice and I can only see the cables if I pull the right side cover off.

    Sorry. I mis-understood. I never even thought about the motor. Everything up to and including the control cables are removed but the motor stays. I hope that V&H does not mind but I attached the installation instructions, I'm guessing if it does anything it might make some of you decide that you can install the pipes yourself so you buy a set.

    It should be possible to remove the exup motor enitrely, although I do not know the exact process. It is common on Yamaha's sportbikes to remove them, you just need to install an exup defeater. If it is important for anyone to remove this, you should search the FZ1 owners forum or one of the several R1 owners forums. I believe there are guys that have made their own using common Radio Shack parts. Also, if I remember correctly there was a guy in Germany making them for sale, but it was expensive. As I understand it, it is a matter of providing the proper resistance to the computer to make it think the exup motor is still there.

    I think I am going to try to find a place to relocate it to, if not I am going to make it as invisible as possible and call it a day.

    I just got done installing my V&H pipes And my opinion is that you really do not notice the EXUP valve motor at all, but I do like that idea of fabbing up a black cover plate for it - I might be doing that - I do like goverment work at work -the only thing that really needs to be cover due to eye sore is the heat shield for the brake lines going to the back under the pipe - AND oh yea these look and sound great on the raider. To those who are waiting on these still I am sorry but It WILL BE WORTH IT !!

    Morton's has a cover for the brake line heat shield. I hope mine gets here tomorrow.

    Have not done yet, but I am going to just paint the heat shield Black... As far as the Exup, well I cant take my eyes off the shiney stuff ...

    I removed the heat shield with no problems to the lines from exhaust heat, Heat shield is optional in the installation instructions.

    I bought one of those covers too. A little pricey for what it is but it looks a lot better. Even with the heat shield removed, covers up the brake line and stuff.

    cut zip ties, cut heat shield fabric, and removed. Brake lines blend into the frame....not a big deal either way really in my book!
