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
 

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?
Mine actually got quieter after i added the power pro??

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

He's only 22... What could he possibly know at that tender age?   :rotfl: :poke:

Do the Cobra Swepts allow you to switch the passenger pegs around? My wife can't ride now because they are too high.
The V&H 2n2 . You cant flip them around . I have tried it twice.

Looking at side by side photos, the V&H 2n2 run lower on the bike than the Cobras. So if you cannot switch the pegs on the V&H you definitely cannot on the Cobras.
