As this post is specifically asking for the best quality regardless of cost, I would say he is after BEST quality. There is a clear winner when this is asked. It is stainless and the sound is very twin like plus a nice improvement in throttle response over stock. Best quality regardless of cost has to be Staintune.

Thank you all for your excellent input into this very difficult decision. I decided to go with the Arrow 2-2 baffles out. I'm very happy with the look and sound. I'm not sure if its any faster but I ride it like it is, lol. Thanks again!!!

TORs have a great sound and they don't pop on deceleration if your dealer downloads the right tune. I love the sound of mine but they rusted through from the inside out, in three years. Stored indoors.

I love my Dominator Touring pipes matched to the TPUSA airbox removal. Sounds good on acceleration and not super loud during riding.

Ride safe,

Quentin

Just installed Togas on my '01. Really nice bassy sound that's not too loud. If you keep it at 1/4 throttle you could slip through quiet neighborhoods with ease. Once you open it up, it sounds great!

Got the Arrow two into two, baffels out loud as hell only downside you can't fit a centre stand if your that way inclined. I love them.

Stay safe and be happy

Sounds like you purchased a quality exaust. Good luck with it. I on the other hand went with the EMGOs. I was on a very tight budget at the time and that was the only exhaust in my price range or I would have to have gone without an exhaust (repaired after wreck).

The emgos without the baffles are how could i say it... Scary loud, scaring women, small children, little puppy dogs, and cute fuzzy bunnies. With the baffles in well... It's just loud and not so scary. But when under a very light throttle I have no problems with the neighbors and I live in a development.

mods: CRG LS bar end, Avon Roadriders, EMGOs rejetted 132/42 2 shims, 19tooth sproket, Homemade ARK w/ UNI pod filters, stock guages removed and Veypor installed in it's place, Homemade FEK w/LED tail,brake, turn light bar.

Randy, which Emgo's did you get? I am interested in getting emgo's as well, I want ones that look like the stock pea shooters.

They are the ones that are pictured on the Bella Corse site. The reverse coned ones. You can also buy them from any internet motorcycle parts site that sells EMGOs... Be aware that you may need some sort of exhaust sealant (if one exists) to help keep everything sealed. For the money that you will spend they can't be beat... But there are better quality exhausts out there.

Good Luck
