Need feedback from owners with Dragula 2-1 pipe

I really like the look and performance of this pipe, but concerned it will be too loud.

It sounds nice at idle from the youtube clips, but I really want to know How loud it gets when you wind up the throttle?

How does it compare to other popular pipes in volume?

Thanks for any feedback.

I don't have the Dragula, I have the SCS 2-1 and this exhaust rocks. It's not bad at all when cruising, and when you twist the throttle it sounds awesome.

Call Frank and talk with him. He is more then happy to discuss your concerns and questions about his product.
I called and told him what I wanted, a quiet exhaust first, and second, one that lowered the temperatures. He told me what baffles would be the quietest and also advised on a PV map.
My bike is little louder then stock, but a nice burble, and a little sound on full throttle. I am happy.
Plus 1 on a little extra performance too.

The pipe was alright but I sold mine. The rear header pipe hit my right leg and would burn my right leg when I stopped and put my right foot down. The rear header pipe also would hit my right leg when deploying the jiffy stand.
I have a 30 inch inseam so someone with longer legs may not have that problem.
The sound was OK but my V&H true duals sound better IMO.

I have a Dragula on a stage 2 Road Glide Ultra. My bike makes 96 hp and 105 ft/lb torque when I dyno'd it at HP shootout. This with a Thundermax tuner (no dyno tune.)
The pipe speaks with great authority when you hit it but is relatively laid back when you are cruising. I got one of the very first Dragulas Frank sold and the pipe still looks like new. No discoloration, no rust.

I have one also, with a 107, cams and TMax. I wouldn't call it loud, but it let's others know you're there, if you blip the throttle it grabs attention.

Thanks for the feedback guys, sounds like this pipe is exactly what I'm looking for.

I'm going to go with the smallest baffle which will hopefully help keep the decibels down.

This is my first time running a Dragula and I don't think it's loud. It's not loud at idle but you can tell you on it when you throw the throttle. I have a 120r and I'm running a 3" baffle. It really depends on the size of the baffle. That thing sounds good to me. No ear ringing or any of that jazz.
