Louder pipes

Post by purplemotoman »



I'm curious if anyone has tried fitting a set of slip ons from say a Harley or an aftermarket company. Wondering how the Goldwing sounds with louder pipes.
If anyone has, do you close off that small cross over pipe or leave it?
TIA.

This is the first run on my 78 with 2001 Sportster oem slip ons. No cross overs to deal with if you are able to find sportster pipes prior to 2003. I like the sound quite a bit but wasn't looking for anything really loud so the guts of the mufflers have been left intact. I have a buddy with Jardines on his 82 and after hearing these ones he is considering looking for Harley slip ons as well

BTW there is a link in the DIY section that talks about Harley mufflers.

I have Sportser Screaming Eagles on my 1000. For this bike I love them. Under normal acceleration or cruising on the highway they have a soft rumble. Not abnormal or bothersome at all. But...on hard acceleration running through the gears they almost sound like straight pipes. Zoom zoom.
