Exhaust pipes for my Voyager 1700

I am looking for a pair of pipes that are easy to install, reasonably priced and will give me a nice rumble.......any suggestions? Do the Vance & Hines Slip-On Exhausts sound good. They seem to be the only ones I can find that seem easy DIY install.

I did the VH 2 weeks ago on my 2012 voyager. Took me less then 30 minutes from start to finish on install. They sound awesome.
I will find a video of the sound so you can hear if I can find it.

Hey,
I have the Cobra classic 4 inch round slipons paid $499.47 on ebay with free shipping and I like the sound not to loud but has that rumble. I agree with bullcrapallday the Cobra tri ovals have a pinggy sound I don't like either. The Vance & Hines sound good too they are a little louder than the Cobra rounds and cost a little more. They are all pretty easy to install if you are somewhat mechanically inclined remove saddle bags couple of bolts and couple of clamps.

Have you ever done any mechanical work. Is so here is the procedure it is 3 10mm bolts for each saddle bag then they lift right off. Then you have 2 8mm worm drive bolts for the exhaust flange. Make sure you swap the exhaust gaskets over unless they stay in the manifold pipe side. Then itís 2 - 10/12mm bolts donít remember holding the exhaust to the back bracket. I literally did this entire job in less then 30mins. Just make sure you have a second set of hands for helping hold stuff while revolting exhaust back up. Also a motorcycle stand helps. But all in all super super easy if you can do basic mechanical work.

Can you post a pic of your Cobra classics? I think that's what is on mine, but not sure
