Question tailpipes

I've been looking for custom mufflers and tailpipes for my '97 vulcan750. I am confused with the types out there. it seems there are slipon mufflers-are they any good? Also some kits have the two pipes on the same side of the bike, I like one on each side like it is designed. Any input will be helpful of which name brand is more popular for this bike. thanks

Dyna pipes (for Hardley bikes) are pretty popular slip-ons and reasonably priced on eBay. Fergy has them and the sound clip he provided sounds really good.
With those, you can keep the two sided set-up.
Do you still have the premuffler (or more commonly called here, the goats belly) on the exhaust?

V&H are good pipes, they have a good sound.
You will have to do some adjustment to the carbs to keep the popping on decel.
not hard to do there is a good write up in the verses about it

The dyna slip ons are easy to install, but you have to make your own mounts. It's not a hard job if you have a grinder to smooth the cut ends of the strap metal used for the mount. It helps to have a dremmel to cut the metal with and a drill press to drill it, but it could be done with a hack saw and a hand drill. Somewhere on here I posted pics of the metal and the mufflers mounted. Oh yeah, they're in the Member Gallery under Fergy.

You can find the dynas on ebay for around $25-30 bucks.
