Vance Hines CS One Single Exhaust for Concours 1400 2009-2015
Very Nice Product
I purchased the Vance and Hines exhaust in black finish to replace the original factory setup on my 2014 Kawasaki Concours. The installation took longer than I thought it would but that is mostly how I work since I take my time to do it right. The directions need more detail pictures and information however if you look at the installation videos on YouTube you will be able to do this job yourself with no issues. It only required simple tools to remove the original and install the new exhaust, I recommend using Loctite as a extra precaution for the bolts. The heat shield was just a little tricky to get installed but the overall job turned out well. It sounds great but don't be fooled by the sound inside, once you go outside it is not quite as pronounced, it is louder than stock but not as loud as my Yoshimura on my ZX14 Ninja. It is lighter and better looking than stock, a very good product overall.

super light and sounds great.
I ordered this slip on And received it in a few days,when I took it out of the box I could not believe how light this slip on was,not only did I lose a lot of weight I have great sound . installation was easy and took about a 1/2 hour,if you are looking to save weight and sound good go with a trusted company vance&hines you won't regret it.

Good looking and sounding
I installed this a few weeks ago on my 2014 Kawasaki Concours. I like it so much better than the stock muffler (looks and sound). I am about average with installing things. I did have to look at a video online to help make a couple parts of the install more clear since it was a little ambiguous from the directions. But with the help of the video it was pretty easy. Of course this muffler isn't cheap, but I really like the looks and the sound. FYI, there was a pretty nasty smell for about ten rides but it's gone now.

Sounds great! You can feel the diference!
Overall great product- cannot seal the mid pipt to the main head pipe completely. There is a small leak at the gap of the clamp. No matter how tight or loose it's connected.... It seems to reduce when the bike is warmed up and exhaust is hot.
Don't think it's enough to worry about!, I'm just picky.

Installed on 2008 Concours, fit perfectly.
Easy to install. Not too loud and nice "low" rumble type sound.

The CSOne is a quick and easy install. It produces a deeper tone at idle and growl under throttle. At highway speeds the CSOne is only slightly more noticeable than the stock system. Overall I’ve been very pleased with the unit fit and finish. Longer term use will be delayed by winter weather.

Vance & Hines CS One
This exhaust took my bike from couch potatoe to Red Bull energy. Deep throaty sound. Excellent.
