EBay buy-it-now "auction" for a Kerker 2-1 for 86-2003 $630:



http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kerker-2-int...224#vi-content

The Kerker looks similar to the V&H 2-into-1 that was available from HD when the XL1200S was current, but is quite a bit longer. I don't think the V&H is available anymore, but maybe if you called every HD dealer in the country...



Supertrapp is $520 from Amazon:

My 883 had Screaming Beagles on it, and was too loud for me (also the vibes broke the rear cylinder head pipe). I put on a stock 2003 take-off system for the "stealth" effect. I've had 3 SuperTrapp systems on different bikes, and they always fit well, and the "tuneability" has been useful. I'm considering the SuperTrapp, but I like my $520, too.

Yes, except then I'd have an excessively loud 1200 that I need to buy mufflers for. Either way I need to get this thing quieted down some, my right ear rings after a long ride without earplugs.

The Kerker won't work for me, no room for a passenger and I may someday put bags on.

I didn't know supertrapp still made exhaust for this bike, but I'm not sure the stainless would look right, there's a lot of chrome the PO put on.

That seems to leave me with either Vance and Hines straightshots, one of their slip-ons, or Screaming Eagle assuming Harley still makes it. My stock chrome shields on the header have seen better days, so I would rather just change the whole exhaust while I'm at it.

For the solid mounts the 2 highest-HP pipes (according to XLF) were the Trapp 2-2 high mounts and a set of modded stock headers running cycle shack slash-cuts.

*edit--You don't like the exhaust loud. Even the Trapps were ran with a bunch of discs. You want good flow and quiet, you need an ugly-ass garbage can like Yamaha put on the side of their sporty cruiser.

small size, good flow, quiet--choose any 2.

I have the Supertrapp 2 into 1 on my 2000 Dyna finished in black. It performs well, but I have not done a before and after dyne. I had Screaming Eagle slip ons on it previously. It is not loud IMHO. Regardless, you should be wearing earplugs just for the wind noise at highway speeds. I have some hearing loss from a variety of things other than motorcycles and I am trying to preserve the hearing I have left. Earplugs are your friends.

Anyway, I highly recommend the Supertrapps.

The supertrapp for the solid-mounts has got to be one of my favorite looking exhausts.

I believe the 883Rs of the era came with a stock 2-1,
or maybe it was a screamin eagle piece,
either way -
looked good and I'm sure would meet your noise requirements.

Somewhat loud is OK, but not drag pipe loud. Anything with a baffle would probably be fine really. I had vance and hines on my softail, I was fine with that.

I think I've pretty much seen all of my options at this point, probably just going to go with the vance and hines straightshots. Not the best performing, but it'll look right and not sound too bad at least. I would go with supertrapp if it wasn't in stainless, I don't think it would look right at all on my bike. Too much chrome there already.

This is what the Supertrapp looks like on my '97 Sport. It's the brushed version which I think looks better than the high polished one. They do discolor to various shades of blue and gold. Suits me just fine and the pipe is not LOUD! like many performance oriented pipes.

Terribly dumb post there fella.
It's only dumb if you expect me to do your homework for you. V&H has been making HD's go faster for years. V&H designed the 2-1 Screaming Eagle Sportster exhaust sold in the MoCo catalog. All you had to do was search it there fella.

^I wasn't the one asking the question.

I assume the guy who did, has in fact, heard such a name as Vance and Hines in his search for an exhaust.
If he hasn't, well then your reply was just brilliant.

Now I've seem to gotten a little more out of you,
as I didn't know it was VH that designed that SE 2-1 that I was trying to reference a few posts ago.
That would've been helpful the first time around.

Anyway, not trying to pick fights -
You're a sportster guy, so we're cool.
I just figure the point of forums like this
is to get people to share what they know.

If that's not it, I don't know what it's for.
What is the internet for?

Sat on a "72" today at the local big box Harley shop.

Man! I think I want another Sportster!

That red metallic with black/gold striping is really, really nice!

Caught several glances at the 72 they had at my local dealer,
only had it in black denim. Pretty slick,
though I really wanted to see that red metallic in person.

Looked incredibly tiny compared to my R,
and wayyyyy too much chrome for my taste.


Thanks for getting us back on topic gents.
