Default Bassani slipons

I did a lot of searches here and other places looking for info and feedback on Bassani 4" slip on mufflers. I found some info on the Roadrage 2 into 1 but not much on the slips for a dual system. Can anyone give advise, how do they sound and are they a quality product? I know sound is a subjective matter. I am between these and Rush 4"er's.

Thanks

I love my Bassani's. I used an S and S head pipe and they are awesome on my RGC. I also put them on my wife's street glide with a Vance and Hines X pipe... Her bike sounds great as well.... You will enjoy the unquie sound..

Running the Bassani power curve header and there 4" slip ons on my '12 RG.......they're not the loudest exhaust, but they do sound very deep and good. First installed I was a little disappointed a how quiet they were, 1000 miles later I'm more than happy with the whole system

For ripping around town they are plenty loud and sound killer. On the highway, kick the cruise on 75MPH and can easily hear the stereo without any annoying ass droning

Being its the exhaust I'm running, if you have any other question feel free to ask away

Hey Vinny,

Each set of slip-ons have their own unique sound. Get on u-tube and search for the different pipes your looking at. That way you can hear the different sounds they make and decide which sound YOU like

The only mistake you can make here is to buy a set of slip-ons without hearing the sound and then not be happy.

spend some time doing research and then spend your $$$ just once.

Yeah I have been doing that, looking for something different this time, I have never tried Bassani and don't know anyone personally that has either. Like you said, I am trying to do this once. Thanks for the feedback.

I agree on youtube. Plus my computer is a junker,
No need to go to that much trouble on the baffles, thanks though.
