Default New Exhausts from other manufacturers

Does anybody know if any of the big (ie; cobra, vance and hines, reinheart etc) motorcycle exhaust manufacturers will be coming out with a new exhaust system/mufflers for the cross bikes? Other then the aftermarket mufflers, that have been discussed on a million threads here (ie; atom bombs, D&D, RPW, stage 1), is there anything new on the horizon for our fantastic, but aftermarket neglected bikes?

Just got a set of Nascar6's pipes. I cannot say enough good things about them. For $200.00 (plus shipping) He re-works your existing pipes and you get what I think is the perfect amount of sound while still retaining needed back pressure. At idle they are quite tame, and once you lay into the throttle, it comes to life (put mildly). The pipes retain all their original stand-offs for the heat shields, rubber feet for resting the hard bags on, etc... I am thoroughly pleased with fit and finish as well as sound and performance.

I talked to one of the guys that said he was in R&D at Vance & Hines up at Sturgis. He said they weren't even currently looking at the Cross bikes. He said when and if they looked into X's it would be a year from then. I'm not holding my breath on anything soon.

BTW, this is not what someone had posted on here months ago. The guy assured me they were not doing anything with the X's because they were so busy on other projects.

I was told by a less than reliable source that D&D would not entertain a tuned flow 2-1 like the Fat Kat until the 10k production number was hit.

I would buy whatever slip-on is cheap and wait until D&D, RB or V&H decide to look at it. Cary Faas used to make pipes but I have not heard if they are still in that business.

What is the information to purchase nascar 6? I saw some post that it also improves performance, is that true?

Thank you!

The problem is that Victory is not yet recognized.
When you ask the exhaust manufactures about building exhaust for us they don't see the sales like they do for HD.
Later then sooner the light will come on and they will make pipes for us but not now.

I've just purchased my XC and although I'm enjoying the quiet for now I was looking into different slip ins. Ness makes Big Bonkers. Anyone have any input.
