Default Vance & Hines or Lloydz?

Got in narrowed down to these 2 for my exhaust. Leaning towards V&H, but afraid they might be too loud. I like Lloydz too, V&H looks a bit better but if Lloydz is a bit quieter, I'll go that way. YouTube clips are not great for gauging noise levels. thanks in advance!

with v&h you don't have to spend $200 on end caps.
I don't think there loud till you get on it

Default V&H

I install the baffles in my V&H, about $30 each. They still sound great and it helps the bottom end torque (butt dyno).

Have to agree on the you tube vids to try to figure out pipes. Seems all the guys that do them think you want to hear their pipes from the ground hog view. The jam the phone/go pro what have you next to the mufflers then rev it a few times. Really dude you think that helps me know what it sounds like? When I had my RSV I found 1 or 2 vids that helped me out. They were from a drivers position while riding so you actually got the correct perspective and sound.
