V&H fit the '07 !!

Just to let others know, the Vance & Hines Big Radius was a dovetail fit onto my 2007 AIH Texas Chopper w/ 111 S&S. All V&H provided components easily went together and aligned perfectly. Given restricted access to the rear cylinder exhaust studs, it was extremely helpful for me to have a second pair of hands (my wife's!!) available to keep the pipe aligned while I secured the hardware.

However, as the stock exhaust did not have removable exhaust flanges, I had to purchase parts from a H-D dealer. Here's a list of what was required:
1 each Exhaust gasket kit (two gaskets) H-D p/n: 17048-98 at $7.95
2 each Retaining ring (cir-clip) H-D p/n: 65325-83A at $1.10 each
2 each Exhaust ring clamp (chrome plated flange) H-D p/n: 65328-83 at $13.09 each

NOTE: the Vance & Hines instruction sheet INCORRECTLY advises the H-D exhaust FLANGE p/n to be "65325-83" however this is NOT the flange but is the retaining ring (cir-clip).

V&H could not confirm fitment onto my bike and they also told me this exhaust was discontinued in July (2010).

Hope this information may be useful to others.
