I got my V&H cruzers for my 800 classic last night. It was a 2 beer job to put them on. :)

All I can say about them is WoW. I had my baffles removed from the stock exhaust, but this is a world of difference. The sound is so much better. They were definately worth the wait.

They do sound good don't they. :) I've had mine on since about a month after I got the bike. Sure wouldn't want to put the stocker's back on.

hey Wood,

Yea, sweat is the right word. Now I have some pipes with cutout baffles if anyone wants them. All the hard work is done..lol

Next on the list is the grampsize. I'll do that as soon as I get my filter.

Vina I've been busy this winter. I still plan on shipping them to you when I get a chance to box them up. I'll let you know how much they cost to ship. I'm sure I still got your address . If I can't find it I'll pm you an get it again.

Mangler, I took mine out for about an hour. D*a*m*n there loud :) they do sound good though. It'll get the neighbors looking,that's for sure. The only thing I did notice with the baffels removed was that the bike wasn't quite as fast. From what I've read about unrestricted pipe's is that you'll lose some if not all your back pressure, which leads to losing some of your torque. Try it just remove a couple of screws an pull. putting them back in is a little trickier (getting the hole's in the baffels to line up with the holes in the pipe's.)

Agreed! I did try to install a pair of cheap slant tail pipes purchased from an local auto parts store ($15 Can. / pair) into my old Cobra pipes hoping that will reduce the noise level. It does cut down the noise about 20% and deepening the tone a little. What surprised me was I noticed a significant increasing in engine power in 3,4 and 5th gears. I guessed the 45 degree slant tail pipes gave some back pressure to my straight-shot pipes...
