I sent a pm about this too, not sure of the best way to use the site yet:

Hi,

I'd like to emulate the mod this guy (in Germany?) did on his Kawasaki Vulcan 900. Can you tell me about parts, etc? Thanks!

The first video is our SC Elite Mufflers, they are however modified by a German Company called Kess-Tech. We have no affiliation with them.
The other video would not come up.
Take a look at our 'Universal' line.

JWells,

His second linked video is the other linked Youtube VN900Trapp video

I don't think it changes your answer, since it just shows another angle to the video. That's too bad the American Supertrapp version wouldn't work. Is there really that much fabrication necessary? Just asking.

Can I get a copy of the instructions for the SC Elites to get an idea of what it would take to install them on my VN900?

I found a link somewhere on the Supertrapp website but it made my computer crash twice.

Here's a copy of the instructions.
This isn't really going to tell you anything in regards to mounting specifically on your bike but might help answer some questions.

In relation to the video, like I mentioned, but clarify, they are out SC Elite mufflers, but the internals/end cap have been modified by another company.

Thanks. A follow up question: If I wanted the ends of my pipes to more or less match up, rather than one extending another foot or two, would it affect engine performance, and could I tune each muffler individually to account for it?

Was thinking of ordering one 17 incher and one 24 incher so they would more or less match up, but I understand that "ideally" pipe should be the same overall length. Thanks!

We would not recommend using two different mufflers on each cylinder.
Slight variations in head pipe lengths is ok, not ideal, but ok. Some pipe designs (not ours) are as much as 18+" difference. Best to be close to equal, but not always possible.
