Honest Exhaust Opinions...

Morning folks,

I've got a bit of spare cash and was looking at exhaust choices for my 2012 Fury.

Are the V&H or Cobra Slip Ons a worthwhile difference from stock? Will they make a significant difference to volume and sound? I've read around and watched all the videos I can find, but in reality it never manages to give that full feeling.

The slip ons are about half the price of the full systems here in the UK, and I'm struggling to justify the extra cost for a system.

I have the D&D drag slip ons and they are "LOUD".
As for the looks, I'm not too happy with it, so I'm thinking about a set of Freedom sharp curves & saving my pennies.

At £500.00 to the door import duties paid, not cheap but In hindsight I should have waited before buying the D&Ds.

Not that knowledgeable when it comes to slip ons but I will say if loud is what your looking for, save your money and have MFR make you a set of customs or do what I did and purchased a set of Hard Krome 2 into 1 sideburners. I can set off car alarms!

If everything seems to be under control
You're not going fast enough!

Seems like it may be worthwhile hanging fire then and saving up for a full system in the future.

Which leads me to a thread about drilling baffles on the stock exhaust....

I've had the Vance & Hines slip ons on for over a year now n I love them. There super loud when the baffles are removed and look good aswell. Also easy to fit and keeps the standard O2 sensor so she runs like a dream. As much as I'd love a full system the slip ons are good value.

I'd go with the V & H, plus as Trevor said you leave the O2 sensor in and avoid some drama. As far as I know all the aftermarket pipes are all designed and made for the US bikes that do not have an O2 sensor like the AU, EU and UK bikes.

Correct me if I;m wrong but I think these have provision for the sensors. I hope so as its one of the reasons I'm going for them.

All you guys with the slip on are all forgetting about a very important thing. And engine is a air Pump. The stock pipes I believe are only an inch and 1/4 in diameter. When you buy a new pipes the diameter of the new pipes are 2 1/4 inches. You want to get as much air into the engine and exhausted as quickly as possible for more horsepower. The bigger pipes will also help you when you put on a bigger air intake. Just put it in my 2¢
