I am sorry if this has been covered in the past. I have searched my butt off and can't find an answer.

Does anyone know the part number for the stage 1 highball drag pipes?

I can find the shotguns for the highball and I have seen drag pipes on the judges and highballs but Vic say that one doesn't exsist for the HB??

Any help is appreciated

Doug

Thanks Bujee,

I took a look at the sight. What I am trying to find are similar to the ones in the pictures below. They are not the shotguns, they are a bit longer and look to have a better power band than the stock pipes.





Thanks

Doug

Here is an informative reply I got from another forum. Still doesn't answer my question of what the drag pipe part number is but I'm getting closer

Hi Doug,
The listed part # on Victory s internet site is
2878200-266
Strangely, it shows up for the Judge but doesn't show up for the High Ball. It use to say that it was a fit but they somehow they changed it in the last few month. Maybe they did minor changes and it doesn't fit the HighBall anymore but I would be extremely surprised as it's almost the same bike.......Maybe just double-check with your dealer or Vic parts supplier.
The frame had to be cut to fit, just like many other pipes but it sounds worst than it is. It's more like an extension to the frame that has to be cut, not the actual frame in itself. That extension sole purpose was to have a bracket for the stock pipes. In no way will it harm your frame and just ask your installer to show you.....
The drag pipes were the first one to appear many years ago, they were a bit longer than the straights and not legal emission and noise wise. The shotgun were shorter than the straights but again illegal.
I chose Vic straights because I love the look, they sound deeper than stock pipes but are still legal emission and noise wise which is what I wanted. Forget the power gains as there is none in my opinion....

Feel free if you have any questions

I have those pipes, bought my bike used. Orig owner had them put on at the dealer.

I was told by orig owner this bike had a "stage two kit" from dealer, air box, pipes and flash.

I've since figured out my air box is stock, and I'm fairly certain these pipes are stock haha. They say "Victory Performance" on them, when I look up that brand it only talks about makeing quality stock parts for victory, nothing for sale.

I'm very curious about these pipes now if anyone knows for sure if they would qualify as a upgrade or stock?

On a side note where did you find those pics? The snow makes me wonder if they arnt from Alaska would be funny if they were from orig owner as I havnt seen them on anyone else's.

I found you one for sale on eBay, seller calls it stage 1 pipes, comes with a air filter for some reason. Lol this must be some kind of factory package my orig owner got.

They usually do a package called stage 1:
- performance air filter
- exhaust (like this one or the swept and maybe another one I don't remember )
- stage 1 mapping

Possible # 2878200-266

Those don't appear to be the "stock" Highball pipes, I would say they probably are what the dealer sells as a stage 1. The air box stays stock, but I believe they change the air filter only, and then a flash. So it isn't a stock set up, but probably not too far from it either. I found this on the Vic site:

Possibly a match:
Black STAGE 1 STRAIGHTS EXHAUST SYSTEM
2878200-266

Pipes have a matte black finish, billet end caps and the Victory Performance logo stamped near the outlet
Compliant with the SAE J2825 sound standard
Does not void the factory warranty
Meets EPA and CARB emissions limits
Dealer install required
Kit Includes: Performance air filter, EFI calibration and Victory Performance Straights pipes.

Probably a long shot as no other reply's from people haveing these pipes, but has anyone removed the baffles or changed them for a deeper sound? I really like the look, they sound great under throttle but are too quiet at idle or cruising at a steady speed.

I ended up buying these pipes. They were really quiet so I pulled the baffles and put in the tunder city baffles. Nice change and much louder roll on. Still fairly quiet at idle.

I got the QQ and I love them. Great sound but I can idle out of my neighborhood at 4am and not piss off the neighbors
