Vance & Hines Shortshots Staggered Exhaust for Yamaha V-Star 650
Welcome to the new Shortshots Staggered; a revolution in blue proof exhaust technology. Vance & Hines delivers the short, fat, straight pipe look with twin slash cut ends. Never before has style and performance on this level been available at such an unbeatable value.
With 1 3/4” head pipes stepped to a 2 1/8” muffler body and 220 degree coverage heat shields, dollar for dollar, this is an unbeatable system. Baffles, mounting hardware, and instructions are included for a hassle-free, perfect fit every time.
Note: This exhaust can be tricky to order correctly due to Yamaha/Star's use of different emissions components. Please read the fitment notes carefully.
OEM head pipe from front cylinder is retained and reused; one is not included with system
'49-State Version' is for 2004 & 2005 Federal Emissions-spec bikes ONLY. All others order 'CA Version', including 2006-2009 49-state (Federal) emissions-spec bikes
You can identify your bike's emissions system specifications on the Vehicle Emissions label on the frame tube. If you cannot identify your emissions package, please call your local dealer with your VIN - these exhaust systems are not interchangeable
Bolt on performance and great sound to boot!
If you don't like it loud these may not be for you, but whether you are looking for a bigger sound or better performance these are a must buy for the XVS650.
Sound is big and deep, throttle response went from sluggish to snappy, torque band improved. Great great product.

Vance and Hines Short Shots
Upon receiving my order everything looked good! I put my short shots on my bike and noticed something looked different but thought maybe this is how it is suppose to look. I rode it over to a friends a few days later and he said it is wrong. I called Revzilla up and told them what was going on and they quickly changed it out. I recommend revzilla to anyone and everyone!
Oh yeah and I love the short shots on my v star 650!

Love these new pipes !!
Easy to install. They sound beastly and look fantastic. My V-Star now sounds like a Harley.

I wanted the Vance and Hines Short Shot Exhaust mainly because the look so great. They are a little loud for my taste but they sound a lot better than the factory exhaust. Overall I would recommend the exhaust to all.

vincent k:Hi, In my past experience with Yamaha they keep model years pretty close and I dont see why you would have to make any mods to fit on any pipes made for the V stars 650/1100 as I have owned both ,however when it came to my 1100 custom I ran DG HARD CROME equalizers with my hyper charger set up and a dyno jet kit,,this bike was a screamer!
As with any exhaust swap outs or modification, always keep in mind,proper jetting is always important, you want the head pipes to turn a golden color,not blue,,to achieve This, i recomend a DYNO JET kit combined with a K and N air filter and before installation of pipes always paint the INSIDE of the head pipes ,this will help the pipes run cooler and always use paste wax on the entire system to prevent any fingerprints or oil burning into the chrome permanently before you fire it up.
I hope this is of help to ya! Ride Smooth! Jun 27, 2014
