Well when you do I certainly hope you'll make it very public. I bought cobra six into six and I'm somewhat satisfied . are they perfect? no. We will never be able to get the V-twin sound out of the small six . I think the best we can hope for is a rich powerful Porsche sound. It seems there's no way to increase The Air induction, to beef up the cobra six into six a little bit. I've had K&N filters , Just doesn't make that much of a difference. I guess when it comes to the Wing engine , if it isn't broke I should quit trying to fix it.

If you want that system to really howl, there's the Torqloopz from Torqmaster (not sure how they'd mate with the Cobra 6's) to really let her loose. I've heard my Kingsnakes without the baffles and she howls like a 959 at Laguna with the tap open. Not for the feint of heart and/or daily riding either though. On a Valk or an F6B...woot woot!

I've had two different slip ons on my F6B, and I removed both very quickly because of the overpowering drone at a steady 2.5k-3k rpm cruising. Yes, the mufflers sounded great while accelerating and idling, but the drone was mind numbing.
The pipes were Cobra 6-2-6 and Rush with both 2.0" and 2.25" baffles.
Be prepared for drone unless you use V&H Monster ovals or get rid of the cats and crossover with the Torq-Loopz kit.

Oh I'm positive on that.

A couple of times I was in the car and go I got changes lanes and I heard a bike but couldn't see it. They were in my blind spot passing me. Had it not been for hearing the exhaust I would have changed lanes.

When I get my wing I'm looking at the two brothers or Rush

A responsible bike rider will never ride in a car's blind spot, except for brief moment that he's passing by. Eye contact in the vehicles side mirror is vital if you're not passing. Sound should always come second to sight.

That's the best move Chopin.

I feel that if you have time to pull in the clutch and blip the throttle then why not just lay on the horn and peg the throttle?
Getting out of the way seems like a better move and the horn on my 15 wing sounds like a truck anyway!

I removed the baffle in my 97 1500 trike.. sound is ok but the DRONE is maddening.. the exhaust dumps under the trike rear end.. anyone added fishtails to their pipes?

Hi guys,

Does removing the baffles mess the tuning of the carbies on our goldwings....? My father in law has a 1999 shadow and had all kinds of problems with tuning after fitting a set of Vance and Hines pipes.......

Honda cruisers are not fans of aftermarket pipe systems. The carbed bikes need serious re-jetting and the EFI bikes would do very well with a custom fuel map and PCIII or later. Plus, with the engine design and offset crank pins, they don't sound all that great with open pipes either. On the 1500/1800 Wing pipes like Torquemaster or V&H have no issues that I know of as long as the pipes are fully baffled. The 1800 EFI you can put on the Loopz and run one set of baffles only with no burps at all. I've run mine open just to hear it and it was LOUD but kinda sweet for about 10 minutes. I run them with dual baffles in each side and it has some drone on the highway but I don't find it annoying. Not sure what anyone close behind me might think, I never ride behind myself so. Not like a Screaming Eagle 103/110 or bigger though that's for sure. If I ever do get the desire to go "quiet" again, I still have the stock system.

I rode behind you for a few miles last year and your pipes sounded fine. I did not realize they were aftermarket. There is a friend of mine that I will not ride behind because of his straight exhaust.
I suppose that it might be possible that I could have been distracted by the chance to ride with "The Administrator."
