2009 Road Star exhaust suggestions wanted

I have cruised the net for exhaust systems for this bike. It seems that Vance and Hines Big Shots are the most prevalent out there, but my dealer says they install alot of Hard Krome. What do you guys suggest to give a better sound (stock is downright whimpy sounding)performance jump wouldn't hurt my feelings. Prefer non-blueing, but they all say that,don't they?

Try YouTube for your bike and exhaust. There are lots of vids so you can hear it before you buy it. Most that say non blueing ust a chrome shield coering the actual pipe so it never gets heated enough to blue it.

THX for the reply FullTilt1. I am leaning heavy toward the Hard Chrome 3" Big Straights. They sound good. Should one pick straight through or perforated baffles?

Nice bike!! i have the 2009 as well, my friend has an 07 and he put BUBS long shots and its the most deepest, powerful rumble i have ever heard. I want them for my roadie but they dont make them for 08-09 as of yet. i also like the V & H long shots and will more then likely put those on. Good luck!

I just went to the Hard Krome website and they are only showing 99-03 Road Star 1600 pipes. Where did you see them?

Speed star

Have you looked at Yamaha's Speed Star stage one two and three? Stage three promises 50% increase of power.

Should take a look at Freedom performance exhaust. I did and i liked them also, you can youtube the sound. I bought the 'true duals with the shark tail fins and they sound awsome on my 2009 roadie 1700cc. just totally awsome.
