Dominator sports are the exact same thing as Predators, so Matt told me.

Well, tomorrow (thursday) is the day. My Thrux has arrived, and I'm going down to listen to and ride with both touring and sport Doms. I'm leaning sport based on the majority of everyone's feedback (thanks). But I have not ruled out the touring. I do a lot of city riding. Loud is safe -- and satisfying -- but also not neighbor friendly in a densely populated city!

Will let you all know . . .

seriously guys, Predators/Dom. Sports aren't really THAT loud. They're nothing compared to an HD with loud pipes. The neighbors will be ok.

Got It

I picked up my black '09 today.

the verdict was Dominator Sport. When I listened to both at the dealer it wasn't even close. The sports rumble -- and Sweat you are right it's not THAT loud at all.

Thrux is amazing. Smooth, powerful -- even below 5k RPM for break-in . . .

Few things I learned about the 09's today:

They have double walled pipes which minimize bluing a bit
They have auto shut off if the stand is down in-gear
you can't start the bike in gear at all it must be in neutral
2 giant Napoleon bar end mirrors make lane splitting tough. I might have to go down to left-side only

I have the DT pipes on an 07 T100 and they fit with the center stand and the side stand.
Good luck!

Talking Touring

I got the touring pipes and I'm glad I did. They are pretty loud on start-up (fast idle) and as motorcyclists we don't need any more enemies. I think they sound phenomenol and I get constant compliments on the sound, especially from old riders who always tell me they sound just like their old triumphs. Remember the number one downside to owning a triumph. Everyone--e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e--has a Triumph story. Your pipes will just collect them that much faster.

Ok i would say def go for the louder option. much safer in traffic and if your worried about the neigbours then start the bike and istantly ride away at low revs. you dont need to "warm it up" before you ride away. However there is something you have not considered. The Preds over the dom sports. Same exhaust you say??? But they are not. The preds have a very cool BC stamp on them. this is what made me go for the preds. Id been using the d&d 2-1 but miss the classic twin sound so will give away a few hp and goback to the nice burble of the twins.

Chris.
