Not heard the RCX on the new motor but based on the older mufflers they do make a quality product.

What looks and sounds good to me, might not hold true for you. I've got a set of 3" RCXs (from my traded bike) sitting on my bench. To my ear, at idle they seem deeper and throatier, and only a little louder than stock. Open 'em up, and they have more of a rumble than a bark. You're not going to set off any car alarms with them. They're not tinny and they don't have that raspy, crackling kind of sound. To be fair, they were on the stock catted head pipe. Plans are to buy either a fullsac DX, or Jackpot 2-1-2 (can't make up my mind) and slap the RCXs on. If they're too loud, plan B is to sell the RCXs and get a set of CVO pipes.

If you just can't stand the stock pipes, slap on some RCXs. If you don't like them, no biggy; sell them and put the money towards the Rineharts you like when they're available.

While we have yet to sell a set of the RCX Slip-ons to go on a 2017 yet due 4 week back log on these particular model years, we've had the good fortune of selling lots of these for '16 & older models and we've received lots of great feedback on them. Because of this, I'm confident you'd be very happy with these should you decide to go that route.

If you're wanting something immediately, it is worth noting that Rinehart announced today that their 2017 slip-ons are now available and ready to ship.

Hope this helps!

I had them and they blew up my ears. Have tinnitus to this day because of them.

Have the 4.5's on my 16RGU. With the stock pipes, they sounded nice and deep - not too loud.

With the Fuel Moto 2-1-2, boy did they wake up. A bit louder at idle, but very loud on hard acceleration. I did set off a car alarm riding through the Best Buy parking lot last weekend, so that may give you some idea....

On the highway, they are acceptable up to about 65, maybe 70mpg. Over that they start sounding pretty loud on longer rides, but I'm getting used to them (or deaf). I ride two up quite a bit and the wife doesn't have any complaints. She does complain when I play movies and music loud, so I guess the frequency doesn't bother her.

I bought the 4.5's before I knew about exhaust gas velocity, etc. I've been told I have probably given up low end torque because of the 2.5 to 3" stepped baffle. I don't know if I really feel any loss or gain in low end with the these mufflers and the Jackpot pipes, but I will say the motor really starts to pull at 3K and above.

I"ve received MANY commend on how nice the bike sounds at idle and running on the road. At the moment I've content (that probably won't last long), but I do intend to do a TTS tuner in the next 2 weeks. I expect that will improve the overall performance nicely and will report back after a few Vtunes.

Hope this helps...

I was at my local Stealer today getting the little tab washer for the starter bolt.. Anyway, the V&H rep was in delivering one of the nicest looking '17 black/chrome slipon's I've seen.. Almost made me want to pick up a new one.. But almost.. I love my 96"

I have the RCX exhaust, bought them at Bikeweek. I got a chance to listen to several. The RCX were in my top 3, price and lifetime warranty were what sealed the deal.
