Adam8ball, thanks. I am very happy with my changes so far. The exhaust is Hacker's Rippers with the quiet option. The quiet option is a 10 dollar option. Basically the pipes are the same as the standard rippers with a small baffle which quiets them down just a little. I felt the regular rippers were a little too loud. They are quite a bit louder than the stock vic pipes. I had the pipes installed about a week ago. Along with the pipes I also isntalled Hackers Anger Management controller and a high flow K&N filter with vented airbox. You can see the vented airbox on the left side of the bike up by the front of the tank.
Side note, Ive seen some folks bash Hacker based on customer service but I have to tell you my experience was awesome. Had the work done by my local vic dealer and they did a really good job. However, my exhaust was backfiring occasionally and the bike felt a little sluggish at times. Ronnie at Hacker worked with me over several days helping me make adjustments and now the bike is running great. I have only good things to say about them.
Over all sound, I love it. I believe if you search youtube for hacker rippers you can find videos that will let you hear em for yourself. Also there is supposed to be a performance gain using this type of system. I havent had it on a dyno so I cant speak to that specifically but I definitely feel like the bike has some more get up and go than before.
