I have an '05 Vulcan 1500FI with the straightshots on it, I'm getting a nasty rattle from the heat shields at anything off idle, anyone else run across this?
and any fixes? I can't find anywhere that it seems to be making contact, but both pipes are doing it, can duplicate when I bump it.
Short of packing some insulation to damper it...what are my options?

It's probably the baffles if tightening the heat shield clamps does no good. There's a set screw retaining each baffle towards the end of the pipe, might check them for tightness.

that was it!
I didnt see them at 1st, I took the end caps off and pulled the baffle out, there was a little slop in it so I cut some superthin shims out of some teflon plate I had left from a skidguard I made for my rockcrawler....NO RATTLES!


thanks again for all the help...this is an awesome site and awesome help!
