Which pipes to get? Cobra or V & N
« on: Dec 05, 2012, 07:35:39 PM »
Can't make up my mind between the Cobra swept and the V & N 2-2.  Any issues with these pipes?

If you like to tinker with baffle changes for sound or performance, get the Cobras.  VH 2-2 is a large diameter pipe and aftermarket baffle options are limited.

Before adding V&H 2/1 on my Raider, I thought about adding the V&H 2/2's because I liked the look better. My problem was no-one could tell me if the factory already added the O2 sensor bung into the pipes on the 2/2's? I opted for the V&H 2/1 because all I had to do was screw the existing O2 sensor in place where the factory supplied the bung already welded into place.

I can't complain about the look. The V&H 2/1 pipes do work rather well with the Cobra Fi2000 Powerpro. The only bad thing was after adding the Powerpro, the exhaust sound got much deeper. I even added a quiet baffle which made little difference. I will say she sounds good when pressed, though I don't think I'd want to be a passenger?  O8O

Do the Cobra Swepts allow you to switch the passenger pegs around? My wife can't ride now because they are too high.

With the V&H 2n2 the factory 02 sensor works .  I have been thinkin about gettin another baffle for mine . I like it but she dont.

Have you tried smartpartz.com? I got the so called quiet baffle for mine (part number SPZVHBR2N1 for $49.95) I was going to remove the factory baffle, but actually installed the Hard Kore baffle inside of the original baffle.

The biggest change in exhaust noise was after I added the Cobra Fi2000 Powerpro! The exhaust sound now has a much deeper tone to it. Although it's not as annoying as it used to be. Even with two baffles inside of the pipe, she still rumbles when you twist the throttle!  :o

Do you mean the pipes are louder when you added the Power Pro?

Don't say that.  You'll talk me out of ever getting the Power Pro.
