I got the Cobra slip ons, nice pipes but loud, I am playing with a few things to quieten them down, wrapped them with sound deadener, put a lolly pop half way up the baffle which took away the full throttle blat blat and loud over run when you back off the throttle.
I would be looking for a manufacturer that offers alternative baffles so you can have some options, Cobra offers nothing for the 1700 slip ons.
I would really like a deep mellow sound without being offensively loud.
I even considered replacing the baffles with a hotdog style muffler shoved up inside the Cobra pipes and tack welding them in if they sounded ok.

Its like asking which seat is better mustang or corbin. Its subjective. I have cobra tri oval slip ons and I love them. I don't think they are too loud at all. To me they have a nice tone at idle and just crusing but can really bark when you hit the throttle. Im sure if you search youtube someone will have a clip of what they sound like.

Ohsteelerfan Hey, Thank you for your input, Cobra tri-ovals is my 1st choice so far getting a good sound clip of them on the move is another, V&H loud D&D better nice sound, D&D being my 2rd choice. once again thank you for the reply. John.
