How to Hypercharger Mods to stop surging. Modifications to pressurize the carb bowl and improve performance with a Hypercharger. I'd recommend doing this to any Hypercharged Vulcan. These mods are described for the 800 Vulcan, but I've also modified a 1500 Vulcan the same way with great results...no stuttering in heavy head winds, etc.

Convert the Stock pipes to Super Megaphones!
This is a picture of the stock pipes on my bike after I drilled the end plates with a 1/4" drill. It relieved enough back pressure that the engine was somewhat more responsive, and the plug color still looked ok. Sounded MUCH better, too.
