Getting ready to buy exhaust

As soon as i get my tax refund i am going to buy the V&H exhaust, but before i buy i had a few questions.

I have found that they make the right and left side exhaust as well as the right side only. I think i like the style of the right side better, but looks like installation may be more difficult. Any suggestions of which one is better, easier, of which ones you think looks better?

Thanks

I have Jardine Rumblers that exit on the right, I really like the look. Removing the goat's belly was very easy. I highly recommend you buy OEM gaskets, they fit the exhaust better than the Harely ones. Good luck on the job.

V & H only makes the cruizers for our bikes, left and right side only. They are awesome pipes!

If you want slip-ons go cheap, if you want a full exhaust with 220 degree heat shields and never see any discoloration and have removeable baffles get V & H.

Here is a link that should satisfy your hunger!
