Given stock exhausts, which of these would be louder at highway speed - 900 or 1600? I’m thinking smaller engine revving higher or bigger engine at lower rpm.

Great to hear. Thanks. My 900 Cl has VH pipes and though I love the ride, my ears have been ringing for five days now since my weekend road trip. I’m a musician, so that definitely doesn’t fly. I need a fix immediately, even if it means a bigger bike that doesn’t rev so high on the highway.

I have V&H Baggers on my 07 Nomad. Maybe it's because they are dual but I don't find them bad on the highway at all. It is louder than stock, of course, but not obscenely so.

Have an 06 Nomad that came with Cora Straight Pipes. Drove it home from Sandusky, Oh to Akron, Oh and by the time I got home had a headache, and I rode with a helmet on. Got home and immediately put the stock pipes back on, luckily they came with the bike. I also had the 900 first and at highway speeds it was louder only because the rpms are a lot higher.
