Looks like I have to get V&H Cruzers....

As much as a I tried to find a MAC system, none to be had anywhere, then ANY complete system (no stock parts reused), none to be had. Jardine is partial, Cobra is partial.

Found new V&H Cruzers for $279 plus shipping.

Really wanted a same side system but can't find one. I have never heard anyone who had the Cruzers say anything bad about them, only good.

I am doing an ear shave at the same time (along with stator too). Besides the 40/140 142 jets for the ear shave, any further jetting for the Cruzers?

Ron, do you have pics? Jon and I have been e-chatting about the MACs (which look nice, but I don't like their sound). Are the Cobras throaty?

Problem for me with the Cobra's is they are slip ons, not complete head to tip system and my head pipes are 14 years old with 23K miles on them. Don't want to reuse them.

I do like the looks of the Cobras and if I had good head pipes, that would be an option.

I like the sound. They are a bit throaty but not as deep as a harley.The right side head pipe is retained. The left side pipe is replaced. I thought I had some pics in the gallery, I'll take some tonight and post them up. They were cheap. I think about 220 including delivery.

Put V&H on my 06, just a little adjustment needed, but they sound great and look good. No problems yet

Mine (so I've been told) are Cobras. I didn't think the left side head pipe could've been from the stock set-up. Wasn't sure about the right. Now I know. Thanks Ron.

These are the only pics I got right now that you can somewhat see the exhaust.
I've got a few heat shields on them (2 on each side), so that kinda distracts ya from what the pipes actually look like........

Thing is.. factor in the cost of a new right header pipe
Parts found with Part Number: 18049-1373
Description PIPE-EXHAUST,FR
Price $97.79

on top of the Cobras at $220, plus the heat shields you will have to get for them too..

The cruzers look even better with a complete system with built in heat shields and full replacement at $279 plus shipping (shipping should be around $20-$25 ground)
