a good Bonneville exhaust

I just bought an 08' Bonneville and looking for a good exhaust. Something quieter than a D&D predator but that doesn't sound like a scooter (like the stock pipes). Anyone have any suggestions?

Staintune have a great sound and a good reputation. Not sure if they're a little more expensive or not.

You should check out our "exhaust" sticky in twins tech talk - lots of videos and sound clips of just about every exhaust there is.

Welcome to the forum, have fun!

I sure like the long Burgess style muffs that I got from Feked.com , would recommend them to anyone!

I love the sound of my Touring version of the Dominator exhaust. Much louder than stock, but not nearly as loud as the Sport version. Although the video clips give a good rendition of the sound, I think it is difficult to judge loudness of an exhaust in a video clip. YMMV.

TOR's do it for me - a little rumbly, very motorcyclish without drawing scowls from passersby - like I care! Not a big fan of the style, though, with the narrow pipe end. While I'm at Bennington, I am sure I'll be able to hear all types in person. Perhaps I'll be inspired by something. Maybe I'll get radical and fit some TT's on! Love that look!

David, your TOR's sound just fine. Wish I heard them before I bought my Preds. The sound clips don't do them justice. The Predators are loud all the time, sound great, but loud.:

might want to have a look at the epco pipes. they have a little grumble at idle and really open up under wot. the best is the sound you get from them cruising in 4th gear about 3000 rpm. music to my ears! -keith

the D&Ds and Predators are two totally different pipes. One is made by D&D and the other is made by British Customs. D&Ds are a lot louder than Predators.
