Here is a link to the best exhaust out there as far as performance and with good sound. The 2nd best would be the thunder header though some say it is a little loud.

I really like the look and sound of the Vance and Hines big radius 2 into 2 kit and the Bassani sweepers.

Cons of the V&H set is i would also have to get forward mounted controls, so an added expense.

my 2 cents.

Besides the 50 state Screamin' Eagles I am also looking at these V & H pipes.
I keep hearing 2 into 1's do good on mid range, but I also want good rev out too.
The Double Barrels have a power chamber for torque & v & h claim they are quieter than the Straight Shots.
Will I always be rubbing my boot on the Double Barrels with forward controls?

If the wife would let me do it i'd sell the SE's that are on her 48 and get a set of the rush slip-ons for it, but its her bike. Check out the sound clips at the bottom----> Rush Mufflers - Motorcycle Mufflers - Slip On Mufflers - Motorcycle Exhaust

Way out of budget, but if you ever see/hear a set of D&D Bobcat on a Sportster you will never consider any other.

I will be getting a nice check from Allstate from a rear end accident I had with my truck. Since I don't plan on fixing the back bumper with the little nicks and scratches which don't bother me much taking the moola and fixing up my bike with some accessories. Should be getting enough for a full system + something else... Hopefully the check comes soon don't want to miss out on the Black Friday sales!!

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.
