Default Victory swept exhaust

This is for the folks thats been around Victory for a few years. What's your take on the older swept exhaust the ones the x-bow replaced? Got a chance to buy a set for a 100 bucks just wondering how they perform and sound.

My bike has em, they're allot louder than the x bow pipes and look nicer too imo. Performance wise, everyone says they suck, I replaced the baffles in mine with RPW baffles and they sound nice. I'm going to change my pipes for either the RPW slash pipes or the Freedom sharp curve pipes. I'm just trying to figure out which of those two pipes are best.

Either way for a hundred bucks I don't think I'll get hurt to bad.

I've got some swept pipes on my hammer. I don't know if they have baffles in them or not but they are pretty damn loud. It seems like my bike has plenty of power for me so I am not interested in changing them anytime soon. IMO they sound great and look great. A bit hot on the leg but once you get used to the way you have to stand it's not a problem.

I had them on my Vegas and really liked them. They were loud and looked great. The only downside was that I did scrape them more often than I would have liked to.

What about a fuel controller no other mods on the bike stock airbox and filter.

I can't verify this by a dyno with AFR sheet but I can say from my experience in other venues that rarely does an exhaust alone make more fuel necessary. It can happen but rarely, with the reputation of the Vic swept pipes I doubt you'll need a fuel controller. Put the pipes on, run it a bit and start looking at the plugs. If it needs fuel the plug will tell the story.

You're welcome but that's just my feeling, I'm not Lloyd Greer.

Well the exhaust is on and I must say I like it. Here is a pic it's not the best will try again this afternoon.
