Default Another new Victory owner

Longtime Goldwing rider. Keeping it but wanted another cruiser type bike. Always wanted a Victory. Just bought a new Vegas 8-Ball. Very sweet bike. Need to do a few mods.

I would like for it to be just a tad louder but not really loud. Anyone have any suggestions?

Purty bike.
Welcome to the forum. As far as performance mods do you just want noise or do you want performance? If you really want performance start with a Lloydz timing wheel at about $162 including the re-useable timing cover gasket. It is a 30 minutes install and will give you a nice bump in torque and HP. You can get one at almost any Victory after market dealer like Witchdoctors as an example. If you want noise I have no suggestions. My Vision is running with over 112 ft-lb torque but I still have a stock exhaust. I prefer a sneaker to a loud bike, but that is just me. When I got the Lloydz top air filter the bike got noticeably louder under hard acceleration but is silent as a mouse when I am not in the throttle much.

Present ride - 2013 Victory Vision, black, ATW at +3, Lloydz air filter and adjustable intake, PC5, 30,xxx miles
