[] - Vance Hines Launches Officially-Licensed American Flat Track Exha

Vance & Hines has just announced its officially-licensed AFT Singles exhaust system. So far, the system is available for 2017-2018 Honda CRF450Rs and will shorty be available for Yamaha YZ450Fs and other models. Racers using the exhaust system will be eligible for additional contingency incentives from Vance & Hines – one race win can just about all but pay for the system, which retails for $549.99 and will currently only be available to racers with proof of an AFT Singles license.

Begin Press Release:

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – February 12, 2018 – Longtime aftermarket and racing powerhouse Vance & Hines has partnered with American Flat Track to engineer an officially licensed AFT Singles exhaust system that’s supported by more than $25,000 in contingency money for the 2018 AFT season.

“I’m ecstatic to be working with American Flat Track on this co-branded exhaust system project,” says Vance & Hines co-founder Terry Vance. “The goal here, of course, is to offer racers and flat-track riders the finest exhaust system available, and I’m confident our new systems are exactly that.”

This powerful and lightweight system, designed and built exclusively by Vance & Hines at its Indianapolis, Indiana racing facility, is available immediately for 2017-2018-spec Honda CRF450Rs (above, lead photo), with a version for Yamaha’s YZ450F (below) becoming available at the end of February, 2018. Additional fitments for other models are planned for the season. Retail price is $549.99.

It’s a complete low-configuration system, comprising head pipe, muffler and brackets, and is built entirely of stainless steel. Features include a re-packable muffler with a billet end cap, and solid power gains on stock to modified engines on all course types, from Short Tracks to Miles. The system was designed from the ground up for AFT Singles and meets American Flat Track’s 105-decibel sound limit. A high-configuration version for both bikes is also in development.

“I’m delighted that we could launch our first American Flat Track licensed project with Vance & Hines,” says American Flat Track CEO Michael Lock. “Their expertise, and Terry Vance’s passion for the sport, are great assets in our paddock. This is another great example of new money being channeled directly to our riders, and we welcome it.”

Initial batches will only be available to current AFT Singles license holders, and proof must be presented at the time of purchase. Riders will be required to have Vance & Hines/AFT decals displayed on their motorcycles during a race event to qualify for contingency payouts. Decals will be included in exhaust packaging, and through AFT Tech Inspection.

Vance & Hines has posted a $5000 year-end contingency award for any eligible rider who wins the championship while using the new exhaust system. In addition, at each round, contingency payments will be awarded to AFT Singles riders utilizing the new exhaust finishing in the top five:

1st place = $500

2nd place = $300

3rd place = $200

4th place = $100

5th place = $50

The primary contact for purchase via Vance & Hines is Eddie Krawiec at or (317) 852-9057. A secondary contact is Craig Koontz at (same phone #).
