I've had the long Bassani 2-1 Road Rage,and it'll drag as bad if not worse than the V&H comp. They make a shorter version of the Bassani now that should be better than both mentioned above. Power wise the V&H will make more power at WOT where as the Bassani being longer will make better low/midrange power(which is where we spend most of our time). Another one that's a great all around pipe is the D&D 2-1 Fatcat. It's one of the best power wise and has some of the best ground clearance of any Vrod pipe out there. Hope some of that helps.---------Ken
