I put on vance and hines cruisers on my 07 1300r last year and have been very satisified with the fit and easy installation. It all depends what your looking for, the original exhaust sounded like a lawn mower, the cruisers are much louder and pleasing, not the body pounding and ear splitting like the straight shots. If you want moderate to loud cruiser, would be for you, if you want loud go with the straight shots. Just my opinion. Also you can go to u tube and hear them as opposed to straight shots.
