Pipes are almost as subjective as your choice in women.

Find what you think looks good and go with it.

Or oil for that matter. I'm running D&D's, quieter than the Fat Jacks I was running with no loss in HP...works for me.
You could check out Santa Rosa Vee Twin, they make some cherry pipes, or Conquest Customs in Florida...they make some real nasty ass "Ground Pounders".

I like them painfully loud.

Current modded factory pipe. (Muffler cut and gutted)

You might want to keep in mind that if you change the exhaust, you might need to dial in the induction system.  Carbs were easy.  These new FI systems, usually require a computer to update the hardware.

The VTX EFI can handle all but the most extreme changes. I didn't have to touch it.

But yes, some computers are not ready for change.

Depends on the Bike, but yeah thats usually the case. When I did performance cams, thats when I had to do a re-map.
