Thanks for the advice I've been trawling through u tube it's a bit difficult to pick up on the sound of different pipes as the camera quality varies a lot but the bub7 looks like a good option also the d&d fat cat, I do like the look of the v&h comp it opens up the rear end of the bike and it certainly has a fierce bark but I reckon it may be a costly exercise as posted by Joe 1985 I don't think the local law will appreciate it the way I would, Also the power commander gets some good write ups, Any tuning work I get done will be through a shop as I'm not savvy enough with with this kind of gig so that side should be o.k. One other question if the pipe is fitted by a non harley dealer does it void any warranty on the engine or running gear?

If you mess with the pipe, even a slip on, it needs to be dialed back in on a dyno. By a pro. I had Dealership do the whole 9 yards. Hiro at Las Vegas Harley Davidson holds 5 world records at bonneville with his v rod. He did mine. He told me the very best setup is screamin eagle pro super tuner, V&H 2 in 1 comp series. Now, the V&H is loud. Real loud. You can check out Las Vegas Harley Davidson's v rod on YouTube.

Let me guess, you bought everything there right?
And what was he riding? And how many set-ups has he had practical experience with?

I tried the tabs and doebeck and wanted more so i ended up with the trask turbo and the pipes were to loud with gremlins/smurfs and epa giving me some work. I ended up modifying the trask pipe by extending and using a single 'tailgunner'. I needed to modify the tailgunner by removing one plate inside and low and behold did the dyno, supertuner and the note is certainly different.

How much did it impede the turbo performance?

As long as you take out the back pressure plate (in the tailgunner) out that enables quicker rotation of the tailgunner; it worked out at a loss of around 6-8 hp from the straight out trask mini pipe (in my opinion and tried 2 thundermaxers and well did not work out). Basically the tailgunner is almost straight out and still rotates and in smurf/gremlin stops idiots sticking nightsticks, police torches to check re mufller and off course impresses any taliban immigrants followoing behind in a car. In addition, the SERT is not a very good option re decel and absolute backfire at 140 km. As mentioned in oz (australia) the smurfs/gremlins and EPA are all over straight outs and its getting to be pain in the wallet, time consuming to deal with governmentals re testing. The modification allows that the OEM HD pipe be re inserted for testing re EPA and well truck it in, roll it out, get it tested, roll it in, truck it out. Otherwise, from zero to 130 she is doing it for me at least and yes loud pipes saves lives. Otherwise just deal with the speed cameras and the nitrod muscle side number plate is off great help and it is rotatable,
