Slip-on Dilemma

Alright all, I am sure this has been posted thousands of times and yes I know "it's personal preference," but here's what I'm stuck on. I was going to go with a full system exhaust, air cleaner kit, cams, etc but I am realizing those funds could take me a very long time to get to so I might as well start off smaller to get at least a better sound for now.

I have a 2012 Road Glide, and will be buying an air cleaner kit, my question is for slip-ons I want something loud but not so loud you cant even stand to get on your own bike. I listen to clips online but as we all know they never do justice to the sound in person.

What is your favorite slip on exhaust for a deep, loud growl type exhaust? One that doesn't sound like "loud trash," if that makes sense.

My first thought when you said "deep, loud growl" was CFRs or Arlen Ness Magnaflows. Might not be in the budget for you though.

The best bang for the buck is American custom Bomber straight cut with their extended tips. You send them your stock slip ons and they send you their modified one. They sound great and are inexpensive.

My budget is around $700 or a little more for the exhaust, I just dont have $1200-$1300 for a full system, and more for cams at the moment.

Interesting, I have never heard those before.

I have had Fuel Moto"s Jackpot slip ons on two different twin cams. Nice low rumble on idle or maintenance throttle with an aggressive bark on harder acceleration. Nice balance of sound. Great build quality and wont break the bank.

I have the Cobra NeighborHaters on my 18 RGS. For under $400 they definitely have a Nice Rumble at idle where I can talk to my OL when we are stopped and a deep rumble when I am rolling down the highway or when I roll the throttle. .....and yes, my neighbors hate the exhaust but I don't care.....they don't pay my bills!

Rhetorical question; who cares what anyone else thinks sounds good? I ask, because you’ll get almost as many different choices as you do replies. So far you got 5 replies with 6 choices and mine (as I write this) a 7th choice.
1) CFRs
2) Arlen Ness Magnaflows
3) American Custom Bomber
4) Fuel Moto Jackpots
5) Cobra Neighborhaters
6) Cobra Neighborhaters
7) RC Components RCX

Your best bet is to go to a “bike night”, a biker friendly place, or better yet, a bike rally and listen with your own ears. Since pipes will sound different on a stock headpipe, than on a header or true dual system, or with a more aggressive cam and head work, that’s another factor to consider, so ask questions since it’s not just the pipe that makes the bike “sound good”.

RC Components RCX turns my head. Don’t see them on many bikes, Rineharts/V&H/CFR/Bassani seem to have the lions share, but when I hear pipes that sound good to my ear and I turn and look, they’re RCX, but again, who cares what I think; it’s what YOU think that matters. Good luck.

One thing to keep in mind is slip on's are for stock headers.. If you plan on doing head pipes down the road the slip on's may not fit due to the larger diameter pipe on after market head pipes. Your better off waiting and buying the complete exhaust it will be cheaper then trying to piece it together.. Best of luck to you..
