Excellent mechanical design. After removing factory exhaust, it took about a 1/2-hour to install these pipes. Do recommend two people to handle the pipes during installation.

Awesome pipes, easy to install and look and sound fantastic.

Work great, sound great. Recommend getting fuelpack and a heavy breather.

Beautiful finish. Fit like a glove! This took little time to install, although it is heavier than most exhaust, I installed it my self in very little time. Sounds great, but it is loud.

J&P cycles are the best of the best. V&H Big shot pipes installed great and are a perfect fit and finish

Sound is better than expected. Can't be happier with this product
REV44 Posted :
Pipes sound and look awesome on my 2010 Wide Glide. Fits the lines of the bike much better then stock. Much louder then they sounded on Youtube, any louder would be anoying. As with past orders with J&P Cycles, consistantly delivered quickly and complete. Will continue being a repeat customer!

jb1128 Posted :
Easy installation. Perfect fit, looks and sound. That says it all.
Hazelton Posted :
Not that hard to install, but you need a few special tools to get the sensors installed in the pipes, but after you hear the sound.. let's just say it is worth the effort and the price. GREAT Sound!! And look just as good.

Look and sound great! Worth the money and easy to install.
djatrophy Posted :
these sound awesome and were very easy to install, when i took the bike to get it tuned the shop mechanic took me aside and told me that it would be better to gte the fuelpak from vance and hines instead of getting the bike dynoed everytime i change something

I received the pipes quickly and in perfect condition. They were the look I wanted and the sound is awesome. The install went well and the materials were of the highest quality.

jdakota163 Posted :
Just the right sound I was looking for. Easy to install and complements the dyna's looks.
fatbob_bq Posted :

Kaw_guy Posted :
I really like the sound that comes from these mufflers. Makes my Vulcan 1700 sound like the big bike it is!
burmak Posted :
Great purchase, I exchanged original ones into the new pipes. They really look beautiful and the sound is awesome.
vmmerced Posted :
Nice looks, but a little cumbersome to instal bacause of the weight .
dmagowan Posted :
Very nice and easy to install. The fit was right on. Wish they gave you new exhaust gaskets with exhaust.
LARRY@POTTEREQUIP.COM Posted :
INSTALLED ON A VTX 1800 2003 HONDA. AFTER CALLING BACK ON INSTALLTION AND TOLD THAT THEY ARE HARD TO INSTALL. I GOT MY TWO SONS TO HELP AND SPREAD THE TWO HEADER PIPES APART TO GET THEM TO GO ONTO THE HEAD. WILL NOT BUY V&H PIPES AGAIN. NEED TO HAVE A COUPLER ON FRONT HEADER PIPE WOULD HELP VERY MUCH. BUT AFTER FIGHTING TO GET INSTALLED I LIKE THE SOUND AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PIPES
thomasbadour Posted :
The Vance and Hines pipes are awesome. They installed great and have an awesome sound. I have had alot of compliments on how good the sound is. I'm very happy with my selection.
jperillo77 Posted :
The V&H Big Shots make my '06 VTX 1300c sound like one bad SOB! Pair them with a hypercharger (or PRO-R Hypercharger like I did) and your adding some serious performance to your bike! You will love the deep throaty sound of these high quality pipes.
tdmonkeyc Posted :
Great sound...don't need the quiet baffles. Nice tone when cruising, and a nice bark when accelerating! Paired with the Kury Pro-R Hypercharger, the bike is crazy!
chubbs9530 Posted :
All I can say is WOW!!!!! The look and sound is amazing compared to factory. Just putting the exhaust on was a jump in the performance of the cycle. That was without jetting it. After jetting, it was even more. Cannot wait to purchase the Kuryakyn Pro-R Hypercharger kit for it. Awesome
ottak3 Posted :
The look and sound of this set of pipes is great
brettbrown Posted :
These are very nice pipes. Nice rumble with the quiet baffles. Not too bothersome to the neighbors.
ssutton200 Posted :
I appreciate the performance gains these pipes have provided. A bit on the loud side when accelerating. A great deep tone when cruising. Installation was not as smooth as the directions made it seem. Had to wrestle them for proper seating on the motor head. I wish I had ordered the quiet baffle at the same time to reduce the high end by 3 dbs or so. That would be perfect for my riding style and needs.

All I can say is wow what a difference. Great pipes!
RCollin865 Posted :
Great Sound and fitment
KC10FE Posted :
If you do not want loud pipes, dont order these pipes. i think they are freaking awesome and loud. Sleek styling and easy fit. Took less than one hour to install.
rudymore Posted :

ferrellwv Posted :
Just recently purchase these pipes. They sound great and really makes the 1600 classic come to life
diver165 Posted :
These pipes rock! The sound is deep rumble. You won't be sneaking around with these for sure. They really wake up the Mean Streak and make it live up to it's name.
Tim Marshall Posted :
The product arrived in perfect shape and as always the Vance&Hines products were a great fit and finish
wildstang95 Posted :
Great sound, Great performance, little better quality control needed.
Rab_McC Posted :
These pipes look great, and sound good too, they are pretty loud with the baffles in, taking them out does not make much difference. My biggest problem with these was the fit, the one piece design makes them a real pain to stretch over the ports, it took nearly all my strength, an I am a big guy ! The worst was still to come though, the mounting bolt holes on the pipes at the rear mount were a good 3/8" out, as the mounting is part of the pipes, and chrome, you cannot modify this without destroying the chrome, so I had to remove the Honda mounting bracket, and re-drill it to suit. With a bit of filling and the pipes off and on three times I got it to fit well - BUT WHY IS THIS NECESSARY ! Not what I expected from a long established company like Vance and Hines. If you choose these pipes dont expect a 20 minute bolt on fit like it should be !
juniorfan13 Posted :
These pipes look great on the bike, but they are TOUGH to install. It takes two strong men to mount this one piece system. Be prepared to alter the mountaing plate at the rear wheel. Also we had to remove the heat shield from the rear port/upper exhaust pipe to mount to ports. Now that I'm done, its worth it.
qts Posted :
I really like the pipes. All the reviews I read about hard to put on are true and I needed 2 people and patience, be sure and remove right lower controls. I would recommend the quiet baffles and wrap, I am getting a little rattle from the back end. Altogether love the pipes and service. The above mentioned issues are things to be expected when customizing.
