There arent any pipes that deepen the tone of the 500. It's not a v-twin and it will never sound like one.

The closest you'll get are pipes called Dunstall Megaphones. They're effectively a trumpet with minimal baffling that are slip on replacements. They make the bike sound like a lawnmower on nitrous and are really annoying. Do a google search for "dunstall" and "vulcan" but they'll drive you deaf if you don't use earplugs.

There are 2-1 setups for the Ninja 500 as they use the same engine but I don't think they'll fit unless you do some heavy modifying. They're slightly less annoyingly loud. ;)

You'd be better off as the Dunstalls are expensive and really offer no more baffling than straight pipes.

Some people have taken the rivets off the back of the pipes, cut the muffler down, and then repacked and re-riveted the back. I dunno if I'd do that to stock pipes as you want to sell it someday.

Head over to the vulcan 500 message board and give them a shout. Dukey among others really know their stuff and they might be able to recommend a pair of saddlebags that will fit witht he pipes.

EN500 : Vulcan 500 LTD and Classic EN500

Good luck!
