When I got my '12 Fat Bob I went with the Screaming Eagle slip-ons. A bit louder than the stock pipes but not excessively loud. Buddy has a Fat Bob a couple years older than mine, same pipes, they are a LOT louder mine. Apparently sometime around 2012 things changed so the newer Screaming Eagles aren't as loud as previous years.

Generally I'm happy with them, don't have to worry about waking up the neighborhood leaving for work early in the morning. On mutli-lane busy highways I wish they were louder, but sometimes I'll just drop it down a gear and run at a slightly higher RPM to make more roar. Realistically though, most newer cars these days are so sound insulated so they probably wouldn't hear me no matter what.

Good luck and enjoy the bike, I love mine!!

Have the same bike and the only thing i can say is, "4 inch Oval Cycle Shack Slip on exhaust". MSRP 369.00, but eBay has them way cheaper than that, i found mine for 80.00 brand new. I'm not lying and if they are sold out, some dealers sell them around 150.00 to 250.00. You won't regret it, they have a deep rumble but, they are loud.

Go to eBay and search: cycle shack slip ons dyna fat bob or call cycle shack company themselves, they are based in Cali

Congrats on your new bike, I have a 2015 Fat Bob, I'm not new to riding, I'm almost 55 and been riding bike on road since age 15. I've narrowed my choices to RB Racing LSR 2 into 1 pipes, Vance and Hines 2 into 1 pipes as wel as also thunder headers. It's all preference when comes to this and anything you put in your bike.

Take a look at the D&D exhaust systems---Not only do they look and sound good but they add considerably to your bikes TQ and HP numbers. D&D has at least two different baffles for whatever db number you like ! A little spendy although remember ,"You get what you pay for". I've run them on all of my bikes for years. They last a very long time without wearing out and/or bluing !

D&D only good to 113" engine size, do they make one good for 88 to 124 or as high as a 140?

Congrat for your new bike.

There is so much options for you bike that you can surfing on internet looking and looking. Youtube is one option to hear something but all depend on quality of the camera and your loudspeakers (all is often too pore to get decent sound comparison).

Go arround and speak, listen your friends bikes and do not be shy to make questions. I personaly spend half a year to decide which exhaust should I buy ...

If you need just bettert sound than mufflers would be enough. If you want a litlle more of HP than change complet exhaust system.

Small children, small toys. Big children, big toys (more expensive).

Enjoy your bike and let us know how your toy would be improwed
