    I bought these pipes for my 2009 Street Bob because they look excellent and I wanted surpass performance. They certainly look excellent, were simple to install, and give a bit surpass performance – but they *need* baffles…these suckers are LOUD without them. I did the do-it-yourself stage 1 – Cobra Fi2000 PowrPro Tuner, stock K&N filter substitution (currently upgrading to a larger K&N), and these pipes.

    I rode nearly with them back and forth to work for a week, which is about a 30 minute commute, and found that my ears were ringing by the time I got to my destination. I also had a bit of a hard time early it since these are barely more than straight pipes and there is very small back pressure. I did some research and finished up getting the Hard Kore Baffles from smartpartz, which are a must if you have these pipes and want to tone them down. With the baffles they sound stock at idle, have a small extra heft at habitual acceleration, and sound down right gritty at full throttle.

    The pipes were really simple to install and the instructions were clear. I bought these from Powersports Superstore using Prime and they arrived a day early.
