was curious if anyone had these pipes and what they think of them?
ive had my heart set on the cobra speedster longs for quite some time but since i just added some chrome to the swing arm i love the low look of these pipes and how its exposed. ONLY thing i dont know is what MY bike would look like with it on. i know cobra makes a 2 into 1 also but im on trhe fence with that one as well. i just love the look of dual pipes as well. crap, too many decisions to make.

also, on a side note, does a 2 into 1 pipe give you more of an increased performance since there is more back pressure? or is it the opposite and having the 2 pipes lets the bike umm, "exhale" better.....

I have the Roadhouse Classic's on my 1500 Drifter......I really like them. It is supposed to be the best flow of a 2-1. A 2-2 will add both weight and somewhat another angle for the left muffler exhaust to exit. But NO DOUBT the duals looks absolutely t1t$ and bada$$.

Here is a video of it, sounds best with a woofer on your system....but limited to the dinky pickup on the mic on my digi cam.

I really like the sound of mine on the 900 but a bigger bore bike would be even better.

I have Vance & Hines 2to1 on my 1500. I've not regretted buying them a bit. Good deep rumble, removable baffle for when your neighbors have p!ssed you off.

I have been curious. As compared to stock are the Cobras you have louder, quieter, or about the same?

thanks i see them. Looks like the pipes on your 1500 are a little different than the one pictured up top for the 1600. The muffler part of the pupe looks difference. And those vance and hines 2 into 1 look really nice too. Seems to me they only make the big shots for the 1600. wtf. :confused:

thanks for all the replies

Had one on my 9. Loved the look and the sound. Had the slash cut tip. 2 into 1 is supposed to give the best performance and torque. IMHO, I thought the RH looked the best with the large can. It really is a Classic look. The others look fine, but, have a more sporty look to them. Keep in mind, they are not an easy company to work with.

The Roadhouse has 1.5" head pipes and optional power baffle (extra $45 or so), and is about half the weight of stock set up. The workmanship is good, welds solid, etc. I've had mine over 1.5 years and am very happy with it. I'd tried Cobra duals and just wanted something different. The Cobras were good pipes too, but a little "tinny" for my taste. I don't think you could go wrong with Vance & Hines, Cobra or Roadhouse.
