Looking at the Harley-Davidson line of motorcycles, the VRSC family is a high-revving, performance-driven group of bikes. If you want to hop up your VRSC model without going into the motor, swapping out the exhaust might be a good place to start. Offering looks, sound, and performance quality, CFR (short for Cary Faas Racing) designed an exhaust and Fueler to satisfy all three of these requirements.
CFR’s megaphone pipe (MSRP $525.00) features a rolled, perforated cone and a stainless steel packing shell with a lifetime guarantee. With an overall length of 28 inches, the exhaust was designed to be much shorter than the stock pipe, therefore exposing more of the rear of the V-Rod. The exhaust is offered in chrome or black ceramic, and comes with all necessary brackets. It weighs in at about 6-1/2 pounds, significantly less than the weight of the stock exhaust. Of course, one of the pipe’s biggest selling points, according to owner Cary Faas, is the sound, delivering a mellow, throaty rumble.
Now, since the V-Rod is fuel-injected, CFR offers their Fueler (MSRP $259.95) to keep track of the bike’s air/fuel ratio and to aid in tuning fuel-injected motorcycles for top-notch performance using load-based technology. Designed as plug-and-play, the Fueler comes pre-tuned with a map pre-installed, and is simple to install and operate. Check out the installation on a stock ’03 VRSCA followed by a run on the dyno at Anaheim-Fullerton Harley-Davidson in Fullerton, California. HB
