    Does anyone have any opinions on these pipes from a look, sound, and quality perspective?

    BUB 7 2 into 1 exhaust system for the 1999 to 2005 Harley Davidson Dyna

    I currently have V&H Straightshots on my bike, and they sound good, but am somewhat preferential to a 2 into 1 system from the looks dept. The Bub 7's have a 4" out, which looks pretty nice. I doubt that I'll get a chance to hear both together to make a comparison, and there aren't any sound bites of these pipes. I don't want the sound to get any quieter, so the same or more would be ok over what I currently have.

    Also, I have a stage 1 kit on my bike right now, what type of re-jetting and tuning would need to take place with these pipes? Is this process unique to each pipe manufacturer or due to being tuned already with the V&H pipes, would a smaller amount of tuning/jetting need to be done?

    Thanks.

    Ive never used or have heard the bub 2-1. Ive used pro-pipes, thunderheaders and bassanis with good results. You should not have to change the jetting considering its only a stage one. If so it will only be minimal. I would bet that the bub 2-1 will be a bit quiter than your straightshots. But im sure the baffle is removeable so it can be modified to make louder. I do this with the vance and hines propipe baffle and it actually picked up hp and tq on the dyno. Good luck, i would like to know how it works.

    While I have not seen in person or obviously heard these pipes, on another forum that I'm a member of they speak well of these pipes. I understand that they are easy to tune. One member there that has them on his bikes always recommends them when someone is asking about 2-1 exhaust. They look great from what I see in the pictures and seem priced reasonably. I'd say go for it.

    I decided to get the V&H Big Radius pipes. Just got them today from Dennis Kirk, pulled em out of the package, and a couple deep 1/2" scratches on them in one spot. The other pipe seems to have some lighter scratching that you can see in the light.

    I typically don't expect perfection, but for $500 bills, these things better be flawless. They are going back tomorrow. Really bummed as I wanted to get them on this weekend. Looks like the new caliper won't be showing up until Monday or Tuesday, so I guess no riding this weekend. There's always yard work...:cry

    Sorry to hear about your new pipe dilemma - you would've been pleased w/the Bub-7 set too. I ended up getting theit TD's for my Street Glide & couldn't be more pleased. Even got an awesome deal on eBay ($325-new) so it was a win, win. Good luck w/the V&H BR's - they're great pipes too. Show us some pics when you get them installed.

    I'm sure that the Bub's would have been nice as well. I thought about it and the 2 into 2 tipped the scale of preference vs. the 1. Always exciting when you come across a can't pass up deal on ebay. $325 is a great price. I'll get some pics up when I finally get em up.
