I have a vrod 2014 and I'm using power vision + KN filters, and I'm in doubt on the choice of exhaust.
2-1 Vance Hines or 2-1 Akrapovic? What should you expect from each? And I'm wanting to put TARGET TUNE FULL KIT ...
2-1 Vance Hines It's easy to burn your leg, and it makes a lot of noise, but it's the one that has the most HP gain.
2-1 Akrapovic the sound is not so cool, but is lighter and gets better on the bike, and has the highest torque gain.
I can't speak to the V&H, but I'm loving Akrapovic:
1. It's crazy light, titanium and Stainless
2. It looks awesome
3. You can download the correct map from Akrapovic website
4. I have the quiet insert because I take long rides, it's a three-screw swap-out if I ever need to go back
5. If you read here, many (not all) people who have had a VH will move to Akra, I don't think I've found anyone dissatisfied with Akra.. (is there?)
I've always wondered - if you replace the stock Akrapovic muffler with a much longer like 16"- 20" 2.5+ " I.D. louvered or perforated core muffler will you gain Hp ? The stock Akra muffler looks very restrictive ( as per their website not a great Hp gain ) and with a quiet baffle probably makes less Hp than the stock H-D 2-1-2 setup ! So keep the beautiful head pipes, collector pipe and add a good looking straight thru longer muffler - I did this with my Bub 7 and the power is absolutely there without the excessive noise, no butt plug, restrictive quiet baffle needed. Anyone tried this setup ?
Obviously appearance is subjective, but I love the look of his Akra with the shorter tip on it. The long, stock, canister tip looks like something that was stolen from a sportbike.
