Hello

Hello all, I just recently bought a 09 1300 and coming from riding sportbikes for most of life this is diffently a change (a more comfortable one I might add) anyway I and would like to ditch the stock pipes for a nice sounding aftermarket. Any suggestions?

Also, is it recommeded to install a fi2000 with this, for decel popping

Thx

I'm a big fan of the roadhouse classic 2into1. It sounds awesome and I didn't install a fuel processor and it runs fine. Once in a while it will pop a little on long decel but very minimal. Even with a fuel processor you will get a little popping on decel. If you listen close you can even hear a stock exhaust popping, its just not that noticeable because the stock exhaust is so baffled.

I have Cobras on my 1100. They have a great sound, loud enough for people to know you are there and the tone out nice once you hit your cruise speed.

I was wondering will I have to remove the baffles in the cobras? or do they come without them?

I know on my Cobras (Full pipes) the baffles slide in and out with one screw (I think maybe two) holding them in and then the tips go on. Basically these baffles look like a cheese grater straight through tube, not much sound attenuation just to add backpressure.

I still have the baffels in my pipes. I would try it with them in at first and see if you like it, before you rip them out.

My cobra shotguns had a baffle in them, one screw in each pipe takes them in and out, takes all of 30 seconds to install/remove.
