I am looking real hard at getting a 900 Classic (I like the styling vs. the Custom) but am not a real big fan of the OEM chrome pipes. V&H twin slash staggereds might be too aggressive on the Classic, but I know I want to go with something black. Any pics or advice?

Vance and Hines are great pipes for the bike. I have them. My buddy has the black ones on his custom and it looks great. Classic was ment to be chromed out in my opinion so don't rule that out.

Couldn't find a pic, but here's a half a$$ed photo shop. Maybe it'll help.
Thanks for the pic --- it always helps to visualize things through something other than rose colored glasses. I am thinking of going black throughout with an accent color. Then I think the black pipes would look like a better fit. I like the length of the Cobra Speedster Slashdowns. Unfortunately, per a rather snotty reply from them, they won't do any custom work (i.e. ceramic coat in black). So I've got some ideas after I give the standard chrome versions a try.

To put this into more perspective, I was pretty much set in getting a Shadow Phantom but ultimately decided not to purchase because I wanted a bike with a little more oomph at highway speeds (yes, I know the difference between 750 & 900 cc's isn't all that great) and better total range between fill ups. I don't want a big bagger because that becomes more of a hassle around town. So that you give you a better idea of what I am trying to achieve with a 900 classic.

If it makes sense, I'd do the pipes first. I haven't seen them in person but they look like they're more of a charcoal than true black. Might look odd if you do everything else black.

Black Pipes on a Classic LT

2011 Vulcan Classic LT
Hard Krome 3" Restech Pipes

These were the first set I used which were aftermarket, I now have the Chrome Version of these under the name "Road Burner". Beautiful sounding but you will definitely need a fuel management processor, and you can find a Fuel Processor on eBay and others sites anywhere from $169-$500 average..depending on the brand and model, but truly worth the investment...I still have the blk ones and getting ready to put them up for sale too.

Thanks for the pic. Those look very nice --- especially with the chrome accent. I've heard some YouTube clips of road burners. Nice.

And, yes, a fuel management system is already planned for.
