Has anyone done the switch from S1L2 on a Vision to Ness Honkers? Will the heat shields (cans) allow a good fitment with the honkers? Will there be an increased horsepower and or sound improvement? I have Victory performance front and Lloyds intake air on the bike. Any thoughts would be appreciated! Im still trying to resize my Vision pic for my account,,sorry!

There have been several posts about the Ness Big Honkers on this site. You might want to consider doing a site search to get the latest info. I have Big Honkers on my Vision and the heat shields fit perfectly. WhileI can'tmake much of a comment about a performance improvement with the Big Honkers (I'vedonea number of other performance enhancements besides exhaust) the Honkerssoundmuch, MUCHbetter than the L1's or L2's. In fact, there is NO comparision in terms of sound quality, intensity or volume. The Big Honkers just sound GOODwithout beingtoo loud. In fact, several of my HD riding friends have mentioned how good they sound. I found that I had to break them "in" for 300-400 hundred miles before they came into their own. Hope thatthis comments help you make a decision!

Keep in mind that if your dealer didn't return your stock mufflers, heat shields and tips, you will be spending a whole bunch of money to buy new ones. The honkers fit under the stock heat shields and tips....

Great upgrade if you like a deeper exhaust note that does not "drone" you out after several hundred miles. performance wise, I suspect that there is not a big upgrade there, but a dyno tune would tell. I went through a couple of variations on exhaust and will now stick with the Honkers. They just sound right!

You might contact Susie at Arlen Ness service in Dublin. I was speaking with John, one of the mechanics there and was informed that they were coming out with a new prototype Honker, for what it is worth.

Cheers

They both fit very well.
In Daytona 2009 a bunch of guys had Lloyd dyno Visions.
If I remember right, the Honkers and S1L2's came in about the same
with the S1L1's coming in about 2HP more.
