I have a 2009 Vulcan 900 Custom SE. What are you guys opinion on the best 2 into 1 exhaust for the bike or is there something else I should consider?

Thank you.

I was looking at fuggin fabrications S4 or S14, it is a great looking exhaust, but they never answer emails.

My next choice was hard krome's sideburner (which comes in black). great look but pricey.

I ended up getting a good deal on a used/scratch and dent cobra powerpro (not HP) from a member here... hope to install when the rain stops up here.

I have read that Roadhouse makes a fine 2-1. The "Outlaw" looks great but is expensive ($541 at phatperformance). I originally ordered one but I was looking at a 2-3 week wait for them to be manufactured.


Since I am a NOW kind of guy I purchased the Cobra Powerpro HP 2-1 for $420.00 off Amazon. I had it in 2 days. It looks great, performs very well, sounds good. The only downside may be volume. My bike is frickin loud now!:cool:

I'm pretty happy with my Cobra 2 into 1 Power pro pipes. They were pretty loud when I first installed them, but after baffling them down, they sound relly great... Look prey darn good as well

It was the one from Smartpartz. I added just a tad of muffler putty around the baffle (optional) to assure a pretty radical tone down. Some like more loud while some like less. I go to work at 05:45 and can't be pissing off the neighborhood 3-4 days a week. The tone and volume are now perfect...

Thanks, but I'm looking for black 2 into 1 with performance and looks. The HK side burners just look too big and gaudy. I was thinking of the Roadhouse Outlaws. Does anyony have any experance with them? Is there another black 2 into 1 out there that may be better?

Thanks

I put a set of black Road Burner Velocity Pro 2:1 onto my '09 Custom SE and am very happy with them. They've been on for ~500 miles and I was trying to wait just a little longer 'til I did a total review. So far, my only complaint is that the paint was very thin on the head pipe assemblies. The paint on the muffler is fine, but another coat could've been put on the headers and heat shields. If it turns out to be a long term problem, I'll just pull the system and send it out to be JetHot coated.

The other downside is, as I understand, this system has been discontinued. So, finding them can be tough and I'm unsure on the long term availability of parts/support. There's not much to the system, so other than wrecking and trashing the whole system I'm not worried about it. The best price I found and bought from was a place called CycleWarehouseOnline on Ebay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/06-09-VULCAN-900-VN900-HARD-KROME-VELOCITY-PRO-EXHAUST-/110563516108?pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories).

I do not know if these are better or not, but Fugginfabrication makes a 2-1 exhaust for the 900, available in black ceramic.

IF you go to the GMAN site where he sells the Bully controller he has dyno results of a 900 with controller, BAK and some brand of 2n1 pipes he sells that got a 30+% increase in hp. If you're going to spend the money, might want to look at those.

I'm the same as rolling bones and if you want you could always get them black ceramic coated, or find some pipes and wrap them in black exhaust wrap. I personally think on a custom fuggin has the best looking, that or the bub jug huggers! gl post pics when ya get em
