2015 Vulcan Voyager Pipes Pipes Available Out There?

Have a 2015 Vulcan Voyager and Looking for a set of pipes for it. Anyone have any suggestion as it seems the choices are slim pickings...

Vance & Hines slashcut

Would be the first thing to mine, but have such "nice emission check" and other DOT checks over here in germany. HERE, thes V+H would be illegal and if the police gets you, you could go home on foot - but in the US ? Get them !

How loud do you find the V & H? I had the Cobra 4230 and didn't like them at all. Now that I've had the flash think I will try the slash cuts next year.

I had the Cobra Billet Tips #4230 but didn't like them. I understand the 4228 Tri Flows are louder and less restrictive. There is a good comparison on You Tube of the Tri Flows and V & H Slash Cuts.

When you roll on the throttle they get pretty loud,cruising speed they are pretty Mello kind of like a new set of glass packs on a truck

I have the V & H Slash Cuts on my Vaquero and really like them. Loud when you want them to be but if you are easy on the throttle they are not very loud at all. I hated the sound of the stock mufflers. I did a lot of research before I made the decision and most people thought they sounded better. Here is a post from Racnray that compare Cobra and V & H slipons. This was one reason I want with the V & H in addition to the consensus on the sound.

Back on topic... The '15 has an O2 sensor, so most manufacturers will simply say they don't make pipes to fit it. What they mean is, they've not gotten around to putting an O2 bung in there yet. So yes, it can look like there's not much available.

But in reality, you can put any pipes made for any year 1700 on your bike. The O2 sensor is a badly thought out late "improvement" from Kaw, that really doesn't offer any useful information to the ECU. It's too far down the exhaust system to be of much use. In the muffler? Seriously?

Just pick the exhaust or the slip-ons you want, Cobra (choice of several), V&H (choice of two), Freedom Performance (several configurations, full systems, chrome or black), and then pick up an O2 eliminator on eBay, or alternatively send your ECU to Ivan for a re-flash. Either of those solutions will mean the O2 sensor is no longer required.

Which ones? Since you can't look for your year, make and model which make model did you use that still fits?

I could be wrong (happens all the time) but the only O2 sensor eliminators I've found for the 1700 are just sealed plugs that protect the wiring harness connector after you disconnect the sensor. I can't find any that serve any other purpose.
I wound up making my own O2 eliminator/plug for less than the ones on ebay.
