Default Exhaust

What kind of exhaust are you using and why?
Have a 2013 Vegas 8 Ball and I'm wanting to get rid of the stock pipes.
I want something that sounds nice but quiet enough to cruise thru my neighborhood without pissing off the neighbors.
Performance is important as well

Ness Fly Bars

I'm running the Bassani Road Rage 2-1 on my 16 Vegas. It sounds great nice deep idle and screams under throttle. Cruising on the highway it's not to loud. You can putt-putt at slow speeds fairly quietly. Also I'm still running the stock air box, filter with o2 connected with no problems at all

I've got bassani pro street slash and the are loud. I think every aftermarket is gonna be loud on this bike. I had the victory x-bow pipes, which came with my bike, but those robbed power. Those weren't too bad, but I can't have something that's hindering performance.

I was considering them but I'm just not sure I like the look. To be fair I've only seen them in photos and not on a bike. Thanks for the input

I agree any of the 2-2 pipes are going to be loud unless I go with hackers and the quiet insert, I'm gonna venture a guess those will kill any performance benefits.... Decisions decisions

I'm running Freedom Performance sharp radius curve Slash pipes....Fuck the neighbors!
Actually they only really bark loud when I get on it!...tunnels are fun.
I may upgrade to RPW's once I re-dyno my rebuilt ,bored and cammed, Vegas if the F.P.'s are holding back horses.
(Kevinx said my F.P.s will get restrictive if I'm making over 115 rear wheel horse.)

Had Bassani Pro turnouts and I must admit it was a good laugh watching those drivers
giving themselves sore necks when I use to roar past the cars..( haha ). However I did
notice less torque on the bike.( The exhaust diameter to big ).

After noticing on the latest visions ect that they had an X pipe built into their exhaust
just were the rear exhaust tucks under the frame to exit on the other side of the bike
I thought about how the H pipe was used in the early years on bikes like Triumph etc.

I then bought a set of refillable exhaust mufflers 550mm long and fitted them to my
original victory exhaust and put a H pipe were the two exhausts come close together.

The result was a very nice deep idle, Very nice quiet rumble on the highway ( listen
to my music a hell of a lot better ), and a noticeable sound when pulling out.

Cheers

Doing similar shopping myself. Wife doesn't want especially loud. her '08 had Shotguns on it and they were downright caustic. Listened to a lot of clips on youtube, but you never can count on the sound quality.
