Questions about vtxexhaust.com muffler mod

I have been reading about the stock exhaust modifications that are done by vtxexhaust.com. I am considering having my stock exhaust modified on my 2006 VTX 1800S. I have read many customer comments on their web site, but would like to hear from any members who have either had it done, or heard the pipes of another rider with this modification.
I want to make my exhaust louder than stock, but I don't want it to be objectionably loud. I am looking for anyone with experience hearing the exhaust note of the vtxexhaust.com
Thanks for any comments.

I have heard nothing negative about mod. Have V&H w/quiet baffles. I'd do stock if able in a minute..

I think the Clayton mod and VTX Exhaust end up with different results. I do not care for the Clayton mod sound (my opinion) but the VTX Exhaust isn't too bad (again, my opinion). I may be wrong though and it could be that they were on entirely different bikes.

I have vtx.exhaust.com on my bike and I like it. I run the baffle with no packing. The VTX1800 is not known for its great exhaust note no matter what the exhaust used is. So when I say I like it its in the realm of the 1800 not compared with any other bikes. Also by the time you ship back and 4th not sure you save that much. I liked the look of the original muffler so I had them gut and shorten works for me. Hope you figure out what works for you. O the video in my sig is VTX.exhaust.com with no baffle at all

I agree, I have done that same change years ago and the sound is much better than stock but they still look like the stock stacked R pipes that I like. I also run the baffles to quiet them down to a sound I can stand. The offset crank pins of VTX 1800 will never sound like a HD or even the VTX 1300 which operate from a single crank pin setup!
