    I think anyone with a VN would have to know about how noisy the bloody injectors are, I know it's not just mine! I was wondering if there's any way to shut them up at all?

    you'll never get them truly quiet .. its a lot to do with the solenoid as well ive heard..

    maybe replacing the whole set up with something from perhaps a vs ??

    My engine is quite noisy, after I put some injector cleaner in it shuts up a bit but after that tank of fuel is gone it comes back. Maybe i should buy new ones.

    Mine have a slight ticking sound at idle. My mechanic said it's perfectly normal and the only way to rid them of any noise it to replace. I run injector cleaner through once every 3 months, keeps them running nice, still ticks, but not so much, only at idle and only when warm.

    Mine are rediculouse, but its not really anything wrong and it runs fine so i deal with it.
    Some injector cleaner is good but only for a little while.

    The better the injector cleaner, the better the results. Remember, not all cleaners are created equal, some can actually strip and damage the jets in your injectors.
