I just upgrade from a 04 750 AERO to a 06 VTX 1300 C candy orange and so far i found the vtx mufler is more quiet than the aero, there is more mirrors vibration on the vtx, the riding position in the vtx is more confortable for me than the aero,and the more importan thing is the power on the vtx .
I'm new in this forum, i will be asking many things related to this bike

I did almost exactly the same upgrade. I agree that the pipes, for whatever reason, do almost sound quieter on the VTX. And you are also correct about the mirror vibration, especially at highway speeds. But hey, those are minor considerations when taking into account all the advantages of the 1300.

Welcome to the board.

No worries! It's a single pin crank engine -- nature of the beast! Buy yourself some loud pipes dude.... relax and enjoy the ride!
