How loud are Cruzers? Degoated Stock?
I am looking to modify my exhaust to be moderately louder. I have searched these boards and found plenty of information about degoating and V&H cruzers, but a lot of it is conflicting. There doesn't seem to be any consensus on which pipe mod is louder.
Well, I know I'm not interested in the loudest pipes, or pipes that change the sound itself. I like the way my bike sounds; I'd just like to turn up the volume from a 3 to a 5 or 6. Not loud enough to compete with a harley, but louder than stock. I don't want something obnoxious. It seems like my options are Cobra Slip-ons, V&H Cruzers, or degoating.
I'm leaning toward the cruzers because of their look and removable baffle, but exactly how loud are they compared to stock/degoated/cobra? Any thoughts?
