Installed on an 09 V-Star 1100 Custom with a Roadburner PRO 3" system. This is an excellent piece of kit and the included installation instructions are more than adequate provided you have moderate tinkering skills. You may require, as I did, supplemental documentation for shimming the needles and re-jetting the carbs but the task is fairly easy. More clarification for connection of the vacuum assist for the butterfly valves is also needed as the description of the location of the vacuum nipple on the carb is fairly vague. You will also need a T-piece for the vacuum line if your bike has emmissions control. Mine turned over and started first crank after install using Kuryakyn's suggested mix (2 turns) and runs quite well but idle back does cause some back firing. I think an extra shim should fix this. The bike certainly feels more responsive and hits peak a good deal quicker but I think this will improve even more with a professional tune.
