    Ok I have a 2012 Victory Vegas 8 Ball and have narrowed it down to two styles of exhaust. Here is a bit of history SRVT (Santa Rosa Vee-Twin) came up with the design and Hacker (a manufacture) built them. Well over the years the companies went there separate ways for whatever reason and now Hacker builds and sells both style of pipes. Now SRVT has the clubs/jokers still in stock for around $500 and Hacker has both the aces/rippers for with a discount around $560. There are no differences between the two as far as sound and performance from what I understand. the first two pics are gonna be my bike then next will be two of the aces/rippers and the next two will be the clubs/jokers. If any of you have any other suggestions please make them and say why. Also any one of these choices will be pared with a power commander V.

    Here are a few pics of each style of exhaust.

    So you like the flat tip look of the clubs better? I like the slash as it was the first thing that I saw but I know that I would still like the other ones too. Just need some help, thanks for the input. I am trying to get a poll up.

    I like this one the best... I don't know what they are each called. The first one is WAY too bold. And on the third one, all I can think of is a low-rider... This one is subtle, yet noticeable.

    Lol sorry that is my bad on the confusion. The first two pics you see is my bike that I have. The second set of pics are the aces/rippers and the third are the clubs/jokers. I like the rippers the best but the clubs I can get for a bit cheaper and they are in stock.

    I've always been a proponent of saving up for what I want... Not buying something a little cheaper that I don't like as much just so that I can have it right now. Just something to think about

    I am the same way in many things as well as the bike I just bought. I do like both styles and both are made by the same people. Like any after market stuff it is a hard choice.

    I like the bologna cut pipes on the bike with the ape hangers. When you look at performance your back low end back psi is gone (low end torque). I had a nice pipes on a Fat Boy pulled them and put the stock back on and drilled them out. My V-rod I got Vance Hines. Looks & sound is great but get redy for no bottom end.:rolleyes:

    You should vote on the poll lol. Yea I know a lot of people experience loss of low end power and torque with pipes but that is why I will put a power commander on it to fine tune it to get the most out of the bike and pipes. Vance & Hines sound great on anything IMO. I wish vance&hines made some for my bike but they don't.

    FB is a 2001 I like it put the 95" jugs Pistons,cams ect.. it has a carb. I like speed so I got the V-rod. My freinds call it a girl bike. The V-rod is so easy to ride I think the weight is lower. V-Rod is no Hayabusy but its fun for a cruzer. Problem is I need to ride them moore. I like riding a dusk but the deer are running crazy almost got one in the Taco two days ago.

    Lol well that is always a fun thing to do. I just like the sound of a big motor with loud pipes and with 106ci I think this thing will sound sweet with pipes. Also if it is loud people will hear me then maybe see me better.

    I'm bet it will, HD is a joke now. They make over priced bikes. That's why I don't ride as much as i did. A bunch of OH want ta bees (that's over Harleyed). Like from the movie I'm going to get U sucker. The guy died form OG (over gold) had to many chains and bling. Also I can't stand the chicks on bikes. If they want to ride ok but not cruzer. Hot chick on a 600 suzki i'm ok with that.
