Raging Cajun Medium Low & Throaty Exhaust
Review of the Raging Cajun Medium Low & Throaty Mufflers
Over the years, I've been very vocal and very positive on the attributes of the Tri Ovals. I've had them on my CCT since day one and greatly enjoyed their aesthetics, fit, finish, sound and performance. I still love all that. But I wanted a bit of a change and looked around at a few options. My plan was to replace the Tri Ovals with 'something', sell them and then buy the UD pulley from Conquest Customs.
I've been reading nothing but very positive reviews of crosscountryla and his Raging Cajun mufflers for a long time. Then some of riders starting posting their dyno graphs with Raging Cajun mufflers. What I saw were great looking graphs with very good numbers with a nice increase in both hp and torque. The torque curve went up a bit right where a rider would want it to.
I sent crosscountryla a message through this forum and we exchanged phone numbers. It took very little time to realize crosscountryla has a ton of experience and information regarding Victory Cross bike exhaust systems. I asked specific questions about his options and told him what other systems I was considering. I soon realized there would be no sense in continuing my pursuit of other options as crosscountryla simply has the information and the experience I was looking for.
After our initial conversation, I thought the Medium Low & Throaty Raging Cajun mufflers were what I'd like. My never used stock CCT mufflers were soon on their way to LA. The Low & Throaty's were back in no time but between time constraints and travel, I wasn't able to install them or test them for a few weeks.
The installation was a hassle in that at 45,000, the Tri Ovals weren't anxious to come off. It took a lot of patience and penetrating oil to get the left one separated from the 90 degree 'elbow' pipe.
A few local trips on the highway and also on back roads made things very clear. These mufflers sound AMAZING. My brother was over one day and we were working in my front yard. I started the CCT in the garage and he immediately said, "wow, what did you do? Your bike sounds wonderful."
Now after running a couple tanks of gas through the CCT I can more fully report that the Raging Cajun Medium Low & Throaty mufflers sound awesome at all speeds and in all the riding conditions I typically ride in. Blasting down the interstate at over twice the national speed limit, they sound amazing. It's more than a bit intoxicating actually. Cruising through town at a steady 30, 40 or 50mph; they sound amazing. Going up and down a twisty back road at anything from barely moving to a steady 60mph and yup, they sound amazing. They also sound amazing at the posted speeds on the interstate! Everything I liked about the sound of the Tri Ovals, has been added to and increased with the Medium Low & Throaty mufflers. They have a 'full sound' without being loud for the sake of being loud. They always have a 'low & throaty' sound to them.
I'm currently running the VicBaggers number 9 exhaust tips which look great. I picked up a set of the chrome Victory 'Shadow Collection' exhaust tips which should sound the same but change the look a bit.
I make the highest recommendation possible for crosscountryla and his Raging Cajun Medium Low & Throaty mufflers. Send him a private message, talk to him and then get the best value and performance in Victory mufflers you can imagine.
All the best,

Who turns Victory into defeat? Polaris Industries, that's who.
2012 Pearl White CCT. Lloyds DR cams, Timing Wheel (+4), Air Filter, 1/4 Turn Throttle Ring, PCV, Tri Oval mufflers, Dyno Tune from Rylan Vos - The Vic Shop: 112/113. Bad Ace Billet tank lifts and Raging Cajun Medium Low & Throaty mufflers added well after the Dyno run.
