Bought these pipes along with the Quiet Core baffles for my V Star 1100 Custom and couldn't be happier. Not only was the purchase itself made super easy by the polite and professional staff, but delivery was fast, free and secure. The pipes themselves look fantastic and sound the business - now my V Star sounds ever bit the angry dragon gargling granite that it was destined to be. I love the clean lines of the exhaust, and did I mention they sound fantastic? I dialled down the exhaust note by installing the Quiet Core baffles (I live in a residential part of the city) and glad I did - the pipes are deep and throaty without any high notes. Damn I love them. Thinking of buying these? Drop everything, buy them now. You'll be glad you did.

The bike sounds how it looks! I will say to be warned that this is quite loud so just be prepared. I was really concerned with how loud it would be before I bought this kit as I was looking at as many exhaust kits I could find. There really is no way to tell how loud it really will be from reading reviews and watching videos. Some people have mentioned that they get headaches with ridding over an hour with these on, I have yet to experience this. Also I have a seyna headset and people only say they can hear it if I accelerate hard on the bike. That said it's not like it's earth shattering, blowing out your ear drums. I would say if you were to judge from it's looks, you wouldn't think it was as loud as it is. Also there's not much else you can really do besides wrap the baffles (read that it doesn't do much) or buy inserts to damper the sound (this appears to change how the exhaust sounds significantly). The exhaust looks amazing and I get compliments all the time. Also I get compliments that it sounds really nice so I think for the most part I'm just paranoid with assuming and worrying people will generally be angry with me. On that note though, only one person I know has told me it's loud. After about a month with it on though I've learn to ride it quite as to keep it in certain RPMs and push the bike away if I need to so that I wake any kids up in the neighborhood. The main reason I got this was to be heard while passing people on the highway (which yes worked), to have a little better acceleration (worked), to look better than stock exhaust (deff worked), and for drivers to just generally be aware of my presence in hopes so that they just don't decide to do last min behavior movements that can potentially harm me. I would highly recommend it as it looks so unique, people mistake my bike as a Harley, and it really does sound good. If sound level is a concern you can make some changes to your ridding style.

These highway bars are good quality and they add a nice touch to your bike. Would recommend.

I put my Cobra Fi2000r on a 2006 Yamaha Warrior 1700, I bought it and it had some drag pipes on it no baffles talk about loud and it had deceleration popping like no other. I got rid of the AIS system put baffles in,K&N air filters, new plugs, and it still popped and didn't accelerate right I pondered Fuel injection units a while because I have had good experience with Power Commanders but thought why not and bought this Cobra unit. After some adjustments and tinkering with its settings for my setup my bike now pulls like a freight train clear to top speed almost and the deceleration popping is a thing of the past. I highly recommend this unit and the best part is you don't need a tablet or laptop to adjust it :) ! Just a small screwdriver. Its small and will fit just about anywhere and hooks up in minutes. Its a great tool for dialing in your bike after intake/exhaust mods.

Did not work well for me!!!!!!!

This fits the bill for me. Low profile so I can throw my feet up on the crash bars with out buying extended foot rests. Lots of power, matches the black paint on my 883. Easier to clean and less often compared to an open air filter. Just buy it already.
