Cycle shack slip ons will give you a nice sound at a reasonable cost.

cycle shack products

Khrome works also.

Re: fatboy exhaust

The stock head pipes work pretty well and all that is needed to upgrade is slip ons.

Re: fatboy exhaust

if you're looking for a complete system, vance and hines seems to have great stuff. my friend has the longshots, they sound great - quite a deep rumble, and right loud when you crack it. my current pipes are the big radius, they also sound great, not as deep, but just as loud. I know the shortshots have more of a high pitched "crack" sound as opposed to a rumble.

I have V& H Longshots on my FB. I like the way they look and I get a lot of compliments on the sound from other riders. You can see a picture in the 'Lets see them softails' thread.

Re: fatboy exhaust

depends what you call low cost there is a set of big radius on new orleans craigs list right now for $500 bucks new they go for $650 remember with exaust other than slip ons you need to open up the air filter and remap (06 and earlier) the bikes computer so it wont be to lean some might disagree

sounds to me what you mite be looking for is a set of screaming eagles.originally i had a set of custom 2 into 1 pipes with no baffles that produced plenty of crack/noise,replaced them with a set of straight thru pipes that gave me less crack but still heaps noisy! maybe a bit too loud because when in for an inspection my bike failed for being too loud so had to rush out and find a set of pipes to put on before i could get it passed.found a set of used s/e to whack on just to get the job done with no intention of keeping them on.once i heard the note they produce and felt the increase in power there is no way i will be taking them off in a hurry.have a hunt around coz like me you may find a set that someone took off a new bike for next to nothing.
