I know I'm late to the party but I bought cheap slip ons from motosport.com and took off the goats belly and it sounds great. If you're concerned about "performance issues" and balanced exhaust than building an H pipe before the slip ons will help. (that is part of what the goats belly does)

My favorite sound is degoated. I like the stock baffles, they allow a lot of sound and it has a nice grunt. The goat is the suppression in these engines. Removing it allows the baffles to be hit hard and they respond. All 4 of my VN's have been degoated. I've tried several combinations of baffles, mufflers, and to my ear nothing beats straight pipes to stock baffles.

I know I'm extremely late to this, but I did the same as the original poster except I have the pod filters and 140 main jet. It has ran great except at WOT since the bigger jets, and I always thought I was running lean, wrong.... When I took off the mufflers and ran it a while, I noticed that at WOT it continues to pull now where before it would almost fall on it's face. So I have ordered some 1.75" exhaust pipe and I plan to run it straight out the back to get the noise out of my ears. With it right under me it is too loud for my liking, but my wife riding behind me says she hasn't noticed a difference from stock. I also hate the look of the goat belly, but I like the performance right now, so I'll keep it, paint it black maybe, wrap the rest of the exhaust, and see how that does. Glad I'm not the only one who likes the way it sounds without those goofy looking mufflers!

Good to know! I ran stock main jets last year. I'm doing an ear shave over winter, so I hope 138s were a good choice.

17 month update, I have had a couple of issues that I'd like to point out for anyone else considering this mod.

1. My rear wheel has developed a coating of soot, as a result of the shorty pipes. I'm hoping to fit some turn outs on there to prevent further soot buildup.

2. My right side heat shield has cracked. The back end is no longer anchored and the flexing finally did it in. The turn outs I'm looking at, should allow me to anchor the heat shields again.

Otherwise, I'm loving it! After an earshave, I am running 40/140 no shims in the carbs with great power, great sound and 45 mpg.
