I have had these on all summer about 12,000 miles and I really like them. Still have a quiet bike when I am taking it easy but when I get into it sounds like a high performance race car.I like riding mountain roads and it sure seems to help the power range when you are running thru the curves. I also like the sound of the muffler when you let out of the trottle.I have noticed the drone sound a little bit at certain speeds but nothing that bothers me.I listen to my music on the speakers just like I always have.I also have gotten a lot of comments from people who have ridden behind me that they like the sound.
I installed the vance&hines first was getting the drone noise at cruising speed then later installed the torque loops drone sound is gone they sound great when at idle or opening up the bike at cruising speed cant tell there even on the bike just was I was looking for in sound and performance.I suggest doing research on whatever your doing to your bike.
I purchased these from a dealer instead of Wingstuff. The dealer actually had a lower price. 1st mistake, Couldn't send them back. Install on 2012, was easy enough, took me about an hour by myself. Used the existing gaskets without a problem. They are too short for the 2012 model, need to be at least 6" longer to get out past the bags. And that's why I think the sound isn't what I want. Riding about 45 to 50 MPH the sound is more like a roaring sound than a deeper power sound, actually makes my ears ring no mater what kind of helment I wear. But people riding beside or behind me say they love the sound. After riding a Valk for all those years I was expecting more. On the plus side, they did cause me to get better gas milage. I don't know how but the bike does get about 5 more mpg with the Monsters than it does with the stock pipes. I wish V&H would make them longer for the newer bikes, maybe I would be more satisfied. As for me, I would not purchase these again.
Had these pipes for 10 months and noticed the chrome peeling off one of the end caps. I was ready for a fight but within a week I had a new end cap. Great customer service. Since I had to put the new one on, I decided it would be a good time to try no baffles. That was the exact sound I wanted "in the garage". Going down the road was another story. It's not that it's loud, it's the harmonics or droan sound. I've decided I like them just as they came. If the chrome gives me a problem again I think I will get the end caps powder coated black so I don't have to clean the inside of the caps all the time. Still 5 stars for customer service and a good product. Wish they would come out with turndowns though.
I bought a pair of these pipes for my 2012 GW here about a year ago. To say that I'm a happy camper is an understatement. They look great and sound even better. 3rd gear really moves out now. The chrome is first rate like all Vance and Hines pipes. I have no problem keeping up with almost any bike on the road. They really fill out under the saddlebags. Alot better than the stock pipes. You definitely will not be disappointed with these .
