Title: V&H hotshot tips
Post by: OR Seedman on June 27, 2020, 18:17:15 PM
finally found the rare hotshot fish tips from V&H.  New old stock...I have been looking for a set of these for over a year.  Really like the look (they extend out more than the billet or slash tips) and they changed the sound to a deeper rumble when accelerating....

Price was good at $70 with free shipping.  Brand new set.

Nice! What size are your pipes? My ride came with Bub pipes but no tips - I've been trying to figure out something that would work...

the inside diameter of each exhaust pipe for the slip in tip is 2 1/8".   I have Vance & Hines Longshots (same diameter as Hotshots...just longer)  The tips go in about 3 inches and have a set screw to keep them in.  I am going to sell off the slash tips and the billet tips as I really like the new ones....

Sweet find. Looks awesome.  I have VH pipes and really a nice rumble. I donít know if they neighbors agree.

I think that was meant for "mittico68" Marco in Italy.

I'm doin' fine, thanx.
Here in Italy the situation is becoming better, day by day. Even though we're still learnin' to live together with that fu**in' virus.
BTW: great catch, you did! I'd like to ear the sound.
