I'm sure this has been covered before, but looking for some slip ons that aren't obnoxiously loud. These are big bikes, and I want a nice deep sound, not something that sounds like a blender. Two Brothers are way too expensive, IMO. I like the Holeshot 4-2 header system, but not enough performance gain for the money. The holeshot slip ons have promise, but I'd like to hear them.

Well remember that you have 2 cans. 2 brothers the most reasonable. Pay the price x2 if you want slip ons

The 18” carbon Delkevics I have on my 14 have a very nice deep bass rumble that goes away above 40-45mph, no drone at all. Very happy with them ! No potato-potato-potato outta my bike ! Potato’s are for soup or French fries !

I'd go with Delkevic 14" slipons, and forego the header system. Reasonable cost and nicest sound to me. TB's too obnoxious for me.

Are 14" long enough to not heat up the bags? I have mine on 95% of the time.

I was going to say to get anything but Delkevics (and Coffman, gross) but that ship has sailed.
Delk fit and finish is not on par with that of Leo Vince, Akrapovic and other well known brands.
BUT... your bike....

Yoshimura R77 slip ons on mine. Removable baffles. Carbon Fibre shell removes risk of burn. Sound is pleasant.

Not mine.

Just dawned on my that these might only fit the Dale Walker FJR headers with the larger diameter exhaust pipes. Buyer beware.

I have the Yosh R77s as well, VERY happy with them but your also at a $1k price point.
$1k!! I wish....lol.
My bill for the slip ons, pazzo levers and tax was over $2k.
Welcome to Canada, eh.

At less than 1/2 the price with a 5 year guarantee I don't care! And they sound great and you get a lot of free stickers too!

I second Delkevic 14 or 18’s. 18’s you will need to ask for extensions from Delkevic (free) to clear the bags. 14’s you may not have to... they will end under the bags. Got two Delkevic cans on my fjr, and two Delkevic for my VFR as well... no issues.. all sound great.
