Exhaust Help for an Iron883

Need help to buy an exhaust for my sporty....i just want something that gives a deeper sound to the ride...With like more bass....
My choice are as follows
1. Screaming eagle slip on
2. V&H straight shot slip ons
3. V&H twin slash 3" slip ons
4. V&H short shots staggered with fuel pak
Well, i am on a tight budget so really dont want to spend too much on it.... Whats ur opinion on the same? Is there anything else that u suggest that i need to add onto this ?
Thx in advance

if you can afford it, go with the V&H short shots staggered. they look good, sound amazing, and relatively cheap. If you go slip on route I would say either of the V&H slip ons you mentions would be good, they should sound similar so it really gets down to the look you want. Exhaust is a big change, I would say save the money until you can get the exhaust you want. If you want a set that costs $700 but can only spend $400, save the money instead of spending $400 now and saving again until you get the set you want. $700 is much cheaper than $1,100 if you do the step up process.

I have the short shots on my 883C. They are ok... Don't try to run without the baffles though. It sounds cool but runs like shit. The SE a/f gave it a bit more. Overall I am happy with them.

I like the sound from the short shots, but I dont like the look of them. If they were solid black. I would like them better. but the little bit of chrome on them is a deal breaker for me.

Cycle Shack slip-ons two & a half inch with removable baffles have the deepest low growl with their baffles in . I like the slash cut . They come with some of the best chrome finish I"ve seen anywhere and sound unbelievably good . I think I paid around $137.00 shipped from Amazon . Believe me ,you will love the sound . I normally remove the baffles on all of my bikes but these just sound great and really helped the torque & gas mileage . Don't forget the MMO & Sea Foam !

I'm staggering. With quiet baffles.



I just took out the quiet baffle and drilled a hole in the heat shield for access to the baffle screw and put in the standard baffle.

Google up Big City Thunder Baffles and see what's available for your bike. Put them in my V&H Big Shots Staggered and they give a low, loud note.
