Default 4th Set of mufflers - Just right now.

1. Stock - Too quiet but great low and mid engine torgue

2. D&D - Heavy and sound good but annoying freeway drone

3. Vance & Hines - Great look and overall best sound but too loud.

4. Victory Tri Ovals - Just right. Still has some mid range loss of torque compared to stock but will work with it. These are the keepers.

Found the Tri Ovals online for sale mistakenly marked as used stock pipes by a dealer. I knew better and snatched them up cheap including free shipping and I love the fit, finish and sound.

You've got nothing on @broggyr .........


If and when I have to change mufflers, I'd go with another set of Tri-Ovals.

I don’t think I had more than that. But, I ended on tri ovals too.

I love my Tri-Ovals,
Good sound without being too loud but the bark is there when you want it.

I may try wrapping the baffles a little (If I can easily remove them) to see if I regain a measure of mid range torque back while retaining most of the sound. When I tipped the pipes up I can see right through the baffles Y to the connection end of the pipes like many of the OPEN pipes I have already had.

I wrapped mine last year, I think it helped a bit with back-pressure(since I'm de--cated), more than that wrapping killed the droning I had. But it was an utter bitch to get my Tri-Ovals apart. Broggyr tried on his new set and one would absolutely not come apart.

What was the recipe for finally getting the baffles out to wrap? I know about the 4 allen heads. Thanks.

Still happy with my WD "cherrybomb" mufflers. I would like to try the tri-ovals to see how they differ but haven't found any in chrome for a decent price.

Lots of heat, heavy duty tie-downs, a hardened steel hook, two very solid things to tension the mufflers between and extreme danger.
