I worked part time at cycle sounds and we would sell blemished kits at a reduced price. Most of the time you could never tell what the blemish was. I also recommend the black grills over the chrome because they are actually a little louder. They are the same grill but the extra chrome makes the holes in the grills smaller and reduces the sound. If you call up ask about the blemished kits for a better priced kit and they come with the same warranty. I have had 2 sets, one on a vstar 1300 that was really loud and you could hear it fine but some songs my wife could not hear. She has a vstar 950 with a drilled out baffle and there is no problem hearing it at any speed. My raider has a Vance 2 into 1 and is no where near as loud as the vstar 1300 so that should not be an issue.
