Vance & Hines Supersport Exhaust
My GS500 has a Vance & Hines
supersport full system, Dynojet jet kit and K&N air filter installed.
The bike makes more power than stock and makes it more fun to ride. The
V&H system has a nice low rumble sound and is quite loud at full throttle.
I am very happy with the modifications I have made.

& Hines Supersport #12029 has a nice sound. Couple that with a
K&N filter and Dynojet
stage 1 jet kit #23-9179(that's a combo kit) and the bike rides way better!
I highly recommend it.
This system really looks good on the GS and the billet machined end cap is a nice touch. This system was a snap to install.
Repainting your exhaust After a couple of years your stock or the V&H system will start to show rust. The only way to bring it back to new is to sandblast it and repaint. Annie sandblasted her system and made sure all the rust was gone. If you don't have access to a sandblaster call around to some body shops or machine shops. They can probably do it pretty cheap. Just make sure you mask off the pretty aluminum parts.
Once the system is sandblasted you are ready to paint. The owner of the Yamaha dealer down the road told Anne that gas grill spray paint was better than the high heat black he was selling. Spraying multiple layers will help ensure proper coverage and help prevent rock dings from getting down to the metal. Once the paint is dry you can polish the paint with a rag to get a shine (gas grill paint is pretty flat but will shine if rubbed with a rag). I have found gas grill paint to be at least as durable as other high heat paints and is VERY tough against rock dings.
