I have V&H short shots on my 07 883. They are really too loud even with the quiet baffles so I am told. I have also heard that there are a bunch of better pipes than any of the V&H pipes. These were on the bike when I got it. They were not baffled then. The bike ran like a raped ape under full throttle but don't dare go into 5th under 60 mph or it would cough and hack like an old man. Not good for commuting back and forth to work. After baffles, SE air filter and a dump jet remap. It is not a bad around town ride.
My 2 cents.
