Hey all just traded in my 03 1200 C for 07 FLHX and love it, I have never messed with a twin cam and was looking to see what pipes people reccomend and why, can't decide between the RH true duals or the vance and hine true duals. I had samson shorties on my sport and loved them but they were a bit loud, would like somethin a little quiter so I can enjoy the $18,000.00 stereo I bought.:D

I have had Harleys for over 30 years. Had every kind of exhaust system made it seems like. For overall sound and performance, look at Hooker true duals. I use them because I pump up the horsepower on all my bikes and found they produce the most horsepower by far but not the noise.

If that's your choices, go with the Rhineharts. You'll be happier in the long run.

With that said, I ran V & H on my Street Glide and I was tickled pink with them. I have heard that they have had some QA problems in the recent past.

streamline, IMO the majority are very good. In a way it will come down to those three keys measures (two of which are subjective)... looks, sound, and performance.

I've gone slip-on, full 2-2, full 2-1, and even stock. No real issues with any of the systems. Currently running Supertrapp slip-ons on the RK and couldn't be happier. H-D header pipes are very efficient/optimized nowadays (As reported recently in American Iron and American Rider), delivering good mid-range where most spend their time. Some full pipe systems do deliver a few higher nums but they often come at the higher end of the RPM spectrum (where most don't spend their time) at the expense of mid-range.

Net is, you will find many fine reco's and many fine systems out there. Some suggest just hanging around a dealer some Saturday morning and getting a good look at the bikes coming and going, listening and observing, maybe asking. Seems to be a pretty good suggestion.

See, there are bright solutions to the darkest problems. And so simple as well.
