Good Sounding Pipes to Compliment my VTX
I had purchased my Cobra Slip On pipes from Dennis Kirk after having looked at several other pipes. I had concerns that these would not be loud enough since they are slip on pipes, but they are exponentially better than stock pipes and well worth the money.

I really wanted a pipe that not only sounded good, but looked good as well. I had drilled out my stock pipes on my VTX 1300, and while the sound was better than stock, it wasnt anywhere near the level that I heard after installing the Cobras.

Price and ease of installation were considerations in choosing the Cobras and while the directions could have been better, the installation was not hard.

The pipes will rumble quietly when idling through town, but will bark with authority with a twist of the throttle.

Cobra slash cut tip for a VTX1300R
The clap of thunder exiting out my garage was long over due. Replaced my Honda stock pipes yesterday, what a differnce, I'm seen and heard. Install took a little longer than an hour. Pipes look great, plenty of chrome to compliment this style of bike. The sound is excellent, just enough rumble to drown out the croch rocket next to me.
Dennis Kirk by far has been one of the most prompt wedsites I've ever ordered from. Ordered the pipes on Sunday and received them on Wednesday; just like they promised.

Great Value, Great Sound
I put these on my VTX1300R and what a HUGE difference from stock. The sound is awesome! A deep rumble when idling but it's not overkill with how loud they are. Now when the throttle is cracked thats a different story. Plenty of sound there to upset the neighbors. It had taken about an hour to remove the stock and put the new ones on. That was taking my time. The nice part is the bike runs better with these on and i do not have to re-jet the carb as with a full exhaust system. I may have got lucky with not haveing to re-jet the carb but that was the case with this bike.

Great Pipes
Just installed them 2 hours ago and what a difference. Sounds and looks so much better than the stock exhaust. Won't be made fun of at work tomorrow! Installation was very simple and pipes fit perfectly. Put the clamps on backwards so the screw portion was to the inside, left plenty of room to get a wrench in to tighten them. Looks better than with the screw portion to the outside. Great Pipes and great price!

worthwhile upgrade
installation was a snap,i just wish i would thought of ordering new gaskets with them.lucky i found some local.
chrome looks excellent on the main bodies but the brackets could have been done nicer.painted the inside of the slash cuts with high temp matte black and this added much needed accent/detail.also upgraded to stainless hardware.
they have a nice mellow rumble at a cruise,crack the throttle and they bark real sweet.
i put them on an '07 shadow 1100vtc.
overall very happy.

Nice Pipes
I had a pair of Jardine Rumblers that were louder and the baffles were held in with pop rivets, they only lasted 3 years. The baffles are welded into these mufflers and the finish is much better, for $150 less. Sounds great.

Love these pipes
I installed these mufflers on my 1100 V-star custom. It took only about 30-45 min which included removal of the factory mufflers. The factory mufflers were too bulky and didn't look or sound very good. The cobras give my bike a leaner/meaner appearance. The rumble makes my bike sound a little bigger than an 1100cc. Not too loud but just enough to be noticed and sound good at the same time. Could just be my imagination but I seem to have gained a little pep as well as looks and sound. Very happy!

Awesome Sound!!
These Cobra Slip Ons Sound Great On My Honda VTX1300R
They Were Easy To Install And For A Good Price. They Fit Perfectly And Look Great On My Bike, But The Sound Is Amazing, Nice Low Rumble When Idle Or At A Cruising Speed, But Open The Throttle And They Roar!

legal but loud enough
My honda sadow 1100 did't come with a tachometer. I couldn't hear the engine to know when to shift. The cobra exhaust allowed me to hear the engine and gave a more aggresive sound. I am very pleased with my purchase and would reccomende it to others with stock exchaust.

Cobra Slip Ons
Fit was good. Installed them on my 2008 1100 V Star. Louder than I expected. Direction were clear, it took a toal of 30 Min to remove stock mufflers and install these. Very happy. 100% improvment over stock, It took a while to get used to how loud they are compared to stock. Its how a V Star is supposed to sound .

I have an 05 v star 1100 silverado and I bought these and the bracket holes do not line up. What is the problem?
Bubby on Apr 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I put these same pipes on my 06 V-Star 1100 and it was the easiest thing I ever installed on a bike. Have you tried moving the pipes in and out to see if holes line up or is there no wiggle room?
