Default New to the forum, my 2nd Vegas,

Finally got her home last night. Between arranging a trailer and snow storms we made it home safe and sound.

2008 Vegas premium...
The first pic how i took delivery, the 2nd pic, is after removing some accessories...debadging happens today, new shotgun pipes ordered before i even got it home. already has stage 1 install, so i will just ride it like this until next winter and then do a full intake and PCV.

It also has 2" pull back bars, and foot controls "relocate" but they don't seem to do anything but space your feet outwards?

Unfortunately I ended up going with the victory stage 1 shotgun pipes. The bike is already setup and mapped for stage 1 but the original owner converted back the the stock pipes. So picked up a brand new set on ebay from a dealer they had in the showroom as leftovers. I picked them up cheap. From what i saw on the dyno sheets on lloydz website the various exhausts werent getting the biggest HP gains, it was more with the intakes and air box.

Just saw what you paid in the other thread. You could get a better exhaust for that price trust me. look at the guys with the big mods
HC, etc you will never see them running the vic stuff. Mine came already on the bike when I bought it used and I did modify them. They sound and breathe better but if I was paying money I would get something else.

Good looking bike! You can always sell the shotguns later for a decent buck. Lots of people don't want loud ass pipes but want something with a bit more rumble than stock.

I know i could have gotten "better" aftermarkets for a similar price but they are usually much louder. The cops have been really cracking down on loud pipes in recent years so I can't go too loud. I had Stage 1 pipes on my 04 Vegas, so i am hoping these shotguns will be slightly louder than those.

The shotguns are the loudest of the Vic pipes I think... I like the looks of them as well. For the price you paid I think you did ok. I wonder if you can change the baffles in the shotguns? I know some guys did it on there swept Vic pipes.

Nice looking Vegas, congrats. I have always liked the shotgun pipes, but the important thing is you need to like them, and it sounds like you do. Enjoy your new ride.
