These are a decent set of headers.
They gave another 3 full hp on the dyno and the note is mesmerising. Weight reduction is like chalk and cheese. They are a lot lighter, which is very noticeable once you start riding.
Installation is fairly easy. However, final fit up didn't allow the under fairing to go in. It needs to be cut as the right hand side pipe was not bent to the correct angle. Which leaves the slip on cans look slightly uneven.
For this reason I gave 4 stars.
These baffles were not as easy to install as we had hoped the would be. Had to take the heat shields off, what a pain. Definitely buy them when you buy the pipes. As far as being quieter, the trike is a little quieter with a deeper rumble than before. Before it had a slightly hollow sound and very loud. I would have liked it to be quieter than the baffles made it. If you are looking for touring motorcycle quite these are not the baffles for you.
Wanted to be heard by those people needing to talk on their cell phones while driving that weren't seeing me and these pipes are achieving that for me! They also look great on my 2011 FLSTC, thanks V&H, great product, great price.
This is just what I was looking for to go along with V&H Short Shot staggered exhaust and new air filter. I was concerned about taking off the catalytic converter and what would happen but this was so easy to sync to my softail classic it's unbelievable the difference in throttle response. I'd definitely recommend this product to anyone hoping to enhance the performance of their bike and be able to monitor it daily.
