Never Again
I got these pipes for my bike. 12 month(25,000 miles) later, one of the clamps holding the heat shield gave out. Replaced it with a heavier clamp. 1 month later heat shield started rattling again. This time one of the brackets on the heat shield had broken loose. Too the shield off and found that another bracket had broken also. Looking closer I found that every weld on the pipes themselves had failed as well. Called V&H and was told they are out of warranty. Another company has a good set of pipes with a lifetime warranty. 45,000 miles later, they still look and sound like new. V&H? Never again.

Practice Patience
The look, sound and performance of this exhaust are among the most pleasing on the market. The fitment leaves a lot to be desired. They don't line up withe headers so protect that chrome and grab your pry bar! The plate that mounts the rear of the pipes have mounting holes for the rectifier that need to moved to the right about 1/4 inch so you don't have to re route the wires. Vance Hines should take note these issues as I'm sure it will cost them sales. I can fabricate so I dealt with it although I agree you shouldn't have to. I removed the baffles and cut the fiberglass batting and the end cap off and reinstalled them. I wanted louder. There was no need for fuel management on my VTX 1800 all though they would love to sell it. You may see and hear the finished product by visiting this URL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nB_nnSJPhRQ

Vance and Hines Big Shots
These are really nice looking pipes that sound great! You will need some help installing them. They could do a better job bending the pipes to fit.

Big Shots
I purchased these after seeing and hearing them on other V-Star 1300's. They were incredibly easy to install, they look and sound great and they are reasonably priced.

My vance and hines were installed on a 07 vtx 1300c. You need a little muscle to install but not to hard. I think vance and hines should make a better looking clamp or a chrome cap to cover screw heads. Other than that i'm very pleased. Dennis kirk has fast shipping, and if your like me you want your toy fixed fast.

definitely better than stock
...but not quite as deep a sound as i was hoping for. Like the pipes, install was super easy and they are certainly loud. Installed on an '05 honda vtx1800n. put them on by myself in a few hours. would have been faster but had to deal with an exhaust stud that came out and needed to free nut before reinstallation. First purchase from Dennis Kirk, but have already ordered again. Price on this item beat competitors by quite a bit and shipping was simply outstanding.

Great Big Shot Sound
Installed the exhaust last night. Very easy installation. Need two people to insure its not drop during installation. I listen to the sound on youtube before purchase. it just doesnt give the sound justice. the sound is better than I could have imagined.
