Bassani vs V&H High Output

Just bought a 2017 RG Ultra. Going stage 1 and trying decide between Bassani DNTs or V&H High Output slip-ons.

Anyone have experience with either on a M8? Want deep throaty sound but not too loud while cruising. Still want to hear the stereo.

I just installed the DNT straight cans like a week ago on my M8. I'd describe it exactly as you said, really deep and throaty at idle, but not too loud while cruising. and it has a decent rumble to it while you hit the throttle on take off, too. I just got home from a ride with a buddy of mine who has a bobbed out ratrod with V&H shortshots on it, crackling away like a fuckin shotgun, and at idle, the deepness of my pipes drowned his pipes out with a bass-filled, deep ass rumble.

No experience with the V&H high outputs, but I LOVE these DNTs.

I had DNT Slips on my 16 RG and LOVED them and the name is exactly what you are looking for "Deep-N-Throaty" - They are quiet at Idle and have a wicked sound on the beans - I Ran V&H Power Dual Headers and the bike ran STRONG for a Stage 1 and sounded great awesome while doing so

V&H High Output

I have a 2017 RG Ultra and just finished adding the V&H High Outputs. I chose the V&H because I was looking for sound, not volume. I could not be happier with the result. I had a Screamin Eagle Road Glide years ago that I ran Rinehart's on and I thought that sounded good. But the set-up I have now sounds really, really good to me.

Same here. 2017 RG Ultra, M8 with V & H HO's and with Power Dual Headers. Very deep sound and does add seat of the pants power.

Thanks!

Thanks for the input. Went with V&H power duals and Bassani DnT. Very happy with the sound and performance. Love this bike!

Rookie mistake for posting in Forum Rules.
