So I am trying to decide on a good 2 into 1 but I don't trust the YouTube clips. So I am calling upon victory owners in the PNW/Seattle area to show off your bikes with aftermarket 2 into 1's. Mainly I've been looking at bassani and rpw, if other suggestions are out there and I could listen to the pipe in person bring it on. Thank you.
This is going on a 15 Vegas 8-ball.

I can only tell you that the Bassani 2:1 has a great sound. Performance wise it it high on the scale. I have a couple friends with those and they are fairly subdued at idle with a deep rumble. But when you romp it they bark nicely. If you want loud and obnoxious, these won't do. They have a more sophisticated sound, smooth and steady. The 2:1 are great and the fast throttle sound is pretty dang good. You won't be setting any car alarms with them at idle and low speeds, but you will be heard when you crack it.
I compared my own exhaust with gutted cats on a stock header setup with Rush mufflers. I not only get compliments on the sound all the time from various bike owners, but from the Vic crowd as well. I had 1 guy who said mine sounded better than his Bassani 2:1 and some others agreed. The HD crowd I hang with says the same thing. My bike can be heard, but not obnoxious at all. Old Lady says she can hear the rumble when Im a block away. Romp it...and you can hear it from quite a distance. right @jwfuchs1
So are you looking for performance, looks, sound? Depends on how much you want to pay and how much you want to to add to performance.
Bassani 2:1 performance wise are great though. KevinX says he sees the best performance with these over other pipes. Lots run the RPW too with excellent results.
My setup added about 4 HP, the Bassanis from talking to a few shops and owners seems to add around 6 give or take a pony. I got my pipes new for 300 bucks and another 75 for the tips. They fit just like OE.
In fact, my setup is louder at idle and slower speeds, with the added cams has a nice little idle lope. And when I crack it sounds like a performance V8.
Originally I retrofitted some HD Dyna Vance n Hines that sounded incredible, but the shorter pipes took away from my high end. Great on the lower though. The Rush are better mid to high range, but the 2:1 exhaust seem a better match from start to finish.
