I have a 2014 Ultra Limited and would like a little more rumble than what I have. I don't want to wake the neighbors but would like a medium amount of rumble, you know a real Harley sound. Any suggestions as to what pipes might work best and where can I go to get a sample of what they might sound like?

Go to your local dealership and look at there used bikes... listen to them... go to a local bike night somewhere. .. talk to people... I haven't had anybody tell me no I can't listen to there pipes... (talk to them first... ask them about there bike and stuff.. most of the time people will talk!) I personally have the Rinehart slimline duals with the 4" slip ons and love them! I'm not sure what you consider to loud... but at cruising speed... I love these pipes... I can still hear my radio...

Find a local bike night or poker run or charity ride and go sit and listen. Then talk to people.

On my 2012 Ultra Limited, I pulled the cat out of the stock header first. Then I picked up a set of stock mufflers from a 2012 CVO Ultra, gutted them and installed 2" Fullsac baffles with new Techmat muffler packing, and powder coated the tips black. I love how they sound and look. If I had not gotten such a great opportunity with these mufflers, I would have gone with the 4" Rhinerharts with the black endcaps.

I have the Rhinehart 4" slip ons, factory 2-1-2headers. It gives the bike a nice rumble without being too loud. It all depends on how loud you want it. Even with the baffles in, they are moderately loud.

I bought a '14 Ultra Limited last summer... Not wanting to break the bank I put the same type of slip-ons as I did with my 2008 FLHT. I believe it's their part number 16763, MSRP about $430, but you can pick them up at all the major distributors for around 380-ish. You know, Dennis Kirk, Revzilla, FuelMoto. Etc.

V&H dual-slash rounds... Pretty economical and they give me the rumble I want without being annoying. The Vance & Hines site has videos that show various muffler configurations with good audio tracks.

Later last summer I installed an Arlen Ness retrofit Big Sucker air cleaner, and then a Fuelpak FP3 for the remap...if all you're going to do is add slip-ons you will not need to remap.

I have jackpot stainless headers from fuelmoto and 4 inch Rineharts. Sounds good when you get on it but can still hear the radio when just cruising along at 60 or better

I have Rhinehart 4" with 150 miles on them and Vance and Hines Monster a ovals for sale if your interested. PM me. Rhineharts are nice. Louder than Monster ovals which are a low power rumble. The ovals will bark when you get on it though; like rolling thunder. Both are nice. I just haven't found something similar to my old pro pipe to make me happy.

I love my V&H 450 Oversized, that with the V&H header creates a nice low deep rumble. Highway sound is minimal letting you hear radio without cranking volume, unless you want to.

I have looked and listened to all the pipes suggestions and I love the sound of the CFR slip ons. I will now due some addition research on CFR. Thanks to all

The only issue you may have is getting genuine CFR's , there out of stock in many outlets .

After a lot of research, I went with RC components 4" slash cuts and their true duals. Best bang for the buck. Nice deep sound and not too loud.
