Pipes Question..

I have Hard Krome Staggered Straights on my V Star:


And a Radius system on my Custom:


When standing still or next to the bikes, the Custom is LOUDER then the Star. But when riding, the Star is a lot louder (for the rider) than the Custom is. Im thinking about replacing the pipes on the Star to something that goes all the way to the back of the bike to quiet down my ride a bit. I can ride the Custom all day and the pipes dont get to me, but the Star within 30 mins I am wishing I had brought ear plugs. It sounds great with these pipes but I just dont want to take the punishment 100% of the time.

Im thinking these:

or These:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Road-Burner-...847384&vxp=mtr

I know the Custom dumps to the ground and that likely helps but I dont think theres a pipe out there for the 1100 than dumps to the ground.

I like the looks of the second ones. Closer together looks better. I have these on my 1300 and I love them.

take a look at samson worlord rippsaws. they turn down at the end and come with removeable baffles. I have them on my 1100 classic and im happy with the look and sound. both pipes exit near the axle so the sound is more behind you when riding. the custom you have is sweet!! but lots of chrome to keep clean.

Nice choice. Before I bought my pipes I thought I wanted hard krome side burners. Then I bought mine for 250 bucks with 1800 miles on them.
And now I only like the looks of the two long pipes on one side. Not a big fan of the sound that comes from the side burner, and can't get enough of mine. Enjoy.
