Need a pipe with a note

G'day lads I was hoping to get some advice on a new pipe I have a 2011 NRS with supertrapp slip-ons and i'm afraid they don't cut the mustard.Pretty much sold on the V&H competition series but some advice would be appreciated on the note they put out also what fuel package to run i.e. power commander or better?

The note is loud. Really loud even baffled. Don't get me wrong I like it but my friends was louder then mine without the big cans on stock system. Take off the super traps and crank it for a second if you can live with louder go ahead but if its too much for you you won't like the 2:1 comp series

on your supertrapp fatshots try this, pull the endcap off and put 12 disc and the thick end plate. I did that and it gives it a deeper note.

The CFR is another option, just as loud but IMO a much nicer "note" and really a well tuned/designed 2-1 for the street on this engine thru the entire range. Very complementary. Well made and looks good.
As far as tuning, the "auto-tunes are very good these days, they have come along way. Otherwise I recommend a proper dyno-tune.

Only thing I hate with the cfr is that for the 2011 you have send your headers yo be modded. But I guess if you are somewhere you can't ride year round it wouldn't make a difference.

my suggestion wud be the Bub 7 (2 in 1).. that's what I have on my 08, at low speed its nice and subtle, but once you turn the throttle it growls quite a bit.

I also like the CFR but I think I may add the baffle this year to take the edge off. There are plenty of tuners, do a search and read other members success or failures with various models. If you are handy you can tune it yourself but a professional dyno tune makes for a happy bike through the entire RPM range. If you like to tinker then buy used from the classifieds, experiment on the cheap.

I have had the V&H Indy pipe, its loud, sounds good but after a couple hours just became annoying. I've since switch over to the Bub 7 which I like better, like stated above lower rpm is quieter but when you get on it she comes to life.

Can anyone say if the power is different between the Cfr and the Indy comp? I have a Indy comp pipe now and the thing is awesome loud with the toughest bark! But the local cops don't appreciate it like I do haha..

The 2-1's will all do the same numbers give or take. I wouldn't worry about numbers, they are all skewed and the variables too many to compare. Forget all that.
I can say this for the CFR however, it was designed by a V-Rod owner (for himself initially), *exclusively for the V-Rod and tested/tweeked until right by same owner before it went to market. It is very well behaved on the street and thru the entire range which is really what you need be concerned with, not numbers.
*A number of pipes and systems out there were simply adapted to or married to the V-Rod and not necessarily optimum. Some are to long, some to heavy, some to restrictive and some like the TH were designed specifically for the Evo.
