2009 xvs 950 standard so i need to sort the sound and improve performance, so whats the best combo against cost as all this shit is expensive in the UK lol

Exhaust: stock, modded, slip ons, cobra slashdown, big radious 2into2

air filter: stock, modded, k&n, air intake, hypercharger

tuner: none, cobra, vanc n hines, power commander.

Cheers

Running the cobra air intake and FI2000 but went with the Vance and Hines pipe. Tried the cobra pipe but liked the V&H better. Less tinny and a bit louder. Bike is the 950.

I'm running the cobra 4inch slip on with the cobra fi2000r fuel processer and a LA choppers xxx open air filter kit. Much improved over stock, slight loss in mpg, but worth the difference. Spent under $600 for it all.
