Hello! Just made the purchase of a 2013 High Ball. Eager to get ideas for customizing! Waiting on my pipes to come in and be installed. Now if only the weather would get better. Semper Fidelis

Congrats on your new High Ball. Which pipes are you getting?

For customizing ideas, browse the High Ball forum should be a good starting point. Here it is: http://www.victoryforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=46.

Congrats on the new HighBall. I have a '13 HB also. There's only a few things I want to do to mine. Side mount license plate, move and replace the rear turn signals, and change out the exhaust. Overall the bike is beautiful as is.

I am the same way. I have the pipes taken care of. Now I just need to get that rear end cleaned up. Might go with that Arlen Ness turn signal that rides the lip of the fender. Eventually get the ones that match and replace the front signals as well. Might buy that hid light kit too. Can never have enough visibility.

Same here got my highball back in octorber already had shotgun pipes and just recently installed a swingarm bag and drilled the baffles in the pipes. Not sure if I am satisfied with the pipes yet though may have to pursue some hacker zoomies.

Why did you drill the baffles? Are the shotgun pipes not loud? I don't want hacker zoomie loud pipes but I didn't want the quiet stock pipes.

What swing arm bag did you go with? I'm thinking about a bigger toolbag on the swing arm.

Where did you get your swingarm bag? Did it fit easily?

Congrats on your new High Ball. I just picked my 13 High Ball up over the weekend. I demo'd one that had the Shotgun pipes on it and it sounded nice. My two choices for an exhaust upgrade are the Bassani pro street and the CC Ground Pounders but they keep raising the price on them making it more difficult to afford.

Good luck with the new bike.

I like the shotgun pipes but I thought they would be louder. What are the pros and cons of drilling the baffles? Is there a big difference in sound?
