Great Purchase For The Price
Just installed them. Easy to install and looks great. They sound awesome. This a note, on the website it says you can not install these pipes if you have OEM crash bars on your bike. I called Vance & Hines and ask them about this and they said they had no knowledge of these pipes not fitting with OEM crash bars. They told me that they will fit and promise they wiil fit. And they did. So don't be afraid to purchase these pipes with crash bars.

Vance & Hines Straightshots Performance Exhaust
Love the look and finish of these pipes, but was amazed at how loud they were. Factory baffles didn't amount to much. Installed Quality Quiet Monster Baffles and was amazed at the sound and performance gain.

Easy Install, Sound and Look Great
The pipes were simple to install, look great and sound amazing. I was planning on removing the baffles, but they are plenty loud with the baffles in. Extremely happy with the purchase.

Impressive
I put these on my c50T.... My little 800cc bike now sounds like a big boy. I can ride with my friends without feeling inferior. I rode with a buddy on an 1100 and he asked if I took the baffles out because it was so loud. The difference is crazy. They were easy to install. It surprised me really, as I'm not a mechanic by any means. Just follow the directions and you'll have them on in no time. The hardest part was getting the stock set off. The only complaint is the heat guards came wrapped in this sticky foam and taped to the pipes which took forever to clean off. (a little citrus goo gone and aMagic eraser did the trick) I turn heads everywhere I go. A little kid about jumped out of his car seat trying to see what was making all the noise. A city crossing guard mistook my bike for a Harley at a stoplight. I'm very pleased and very impressed with the final product.

Loud pipes
Very impressed with the Vance and Hines Straight Shots exhauts. Directions a little confusing, but as long as you use common sense installation is very simple. I recieved the pipes 3 days after placing the order.

Excellent purchase
Just had them installed on my 2005 Kawasaki Vulcan 800 Classic, which I've wanted to do for years. They look great and sound even better than anticipated. Shipping was very fast. Jet kit bought as well. You won't be disappointed.
