After looking at a couple brands, I finally bought the Freedom Performance dual shark tail exhaust for my 07 Yamaha Road Star. They are very nice, heavy duty, brilliant finish, and installs well with instruction. The sound turns heads in the parking lot and definitely sets the bike apart from the stock look. Only rub- if you have a carb, these can affect gas mileage. Worth the money though, very nice.
Just installed these on my Victory Octane this morning. The stock pipes are pretty tame and I wanted something that would deliver the sound to match my bike's killer look. As the Octane is still relatively new, there aren't a ton of options for pipes out there. I saw the biltwell minis and decided to try the Stinger. At $99 per muffler, you really can't go wrong. Long story short, I may not need a full set of pipes as these little mufflers ROCK!! Massive sound and killer rumble when rolling on. These are very loud, and I left the baffles in! Would pretty much be like straight pipes without. After I got the stock mufflers off (not as easy as I had hoped) install of the stingers took less than 10 mins. Pretty happy with the purchase. Hope to enjoy these for many many miles to come.
I'm not one to customize a bike much really, unless it's for comfort, but our 2007 Street Bob was just a little too "still factory" even for me. I shopped around a bit on line, and "in person", and found these sweet looking pipes at a price I could afford, and thought they looked great! Somehow, they actually came in less than 36 hours, and were easy to install, look great, and sound great too. I couldn't be more satisfied.
