Default Best Exhaust For The Highball?

Hi guys, I am looking at exhausts the Swepts might have to go.

I want performance but I want my bike to look the best too. I have narrowed it down to a few pipes. Not really a fan of 2:1's either.

RPW Slash - Look like my Swepts which suit the bike. Won't scrape like I did on my swepts for the first time today! Might wrap the first half as well to make them look mean. Perform really well too and only a bit down on the performance King the RPW Thor. Do I need to cut something to fit these?

Hacker Rippers - Just like above! Really suit the bike. How do these compare in Sound/performance/build & fit quality to the RPW Slash? No cutting?

Bassani Pro Street Turn Outs (new style). I can't stand the look of seeing that exhaust bracket so it has to be the new ones. Sound compared to the above? New style won't scrape? Suit a bobber styled bike. I have found a new set for $450!

I know a lot of people suggest Ground Pounders (have to relocate the oil cooler which is an extra cost) and the Hacker Zoomies (which I like) but I don't really like the way they come across the engine/cam cover. I prefer the front pipe to run don bar the front peg away from my leg. Does anyone else think the same?

I will do a new air intake and PV5 down the line too but for now i just have the stage 1.

Hear from you all soon!

I have two "OTHERS" that I like.

1)http://www.conquestcustoms.com/conqu...dersgpiis.aspx

2)http://www.hackercustomexhaust.com/products/victory.php

I've decided that this time I want short and loud over anything else.

I have had 3 sets of pipes on my Vegas, basically the same as the high ball. Straight pipes, hacker zoomies, and ground pounders. For the cost of the oil cooler relocator the ground pounders are by far the best sound, performance and look in my opinion. in the group i ride in now, we have my pounders, a zoomies, a straight pipe, and a slash. Slash sounds good and looks good, but everyone turns heads to the pounders.

Aren't those like 1300.00 with the cooler though ? That's a set of torque tubes and cams ! I think they look great , don't get me wrong .... But , that's a lot of cake !

I do like the look of the Ground Pounders and the Zoomies but what do you all think of the way the front pipe comes up high across the engine and close to your leg? With RPW Slask or Rippers the front pipe sits low and covers a lot of the bikes frame work.

Does anyone else think the swept/slash style suit it the best or is it just me?

I don't care for the Hackers... I didn't like the sound of the Zoomies. I have heard the Ground Pounders as well. They are unreal sounding pipes! They bark even better than my Bassani turn outs. Bang for your buck IMHO is the Bassani as far as sound goes. I don't know HP or TQ numbers vs other pipes but sound is awesome.
