I agree 100%! When I had my 2017 XL1200 Superlow T, I put Khrome Werks slash cuts and a Zipper's Maxflow intake system on along with iridium plugs and got the best reading ever on the Harley dealers dyno test according to the Technician.

Great to hear the Cycle Shack is also recommended here. My friend found them on Ebay and he's very interested. He ordered a new set of tires from 4Wheelonline which could arrive next week. We'll work on the bike next week so hope they can ship fast.

For anyone interested. I've been running the Drag Specialties Python Slip ons. I believe they have a similar sound and quality to the cycle shacks and are still quite affordable.

They are definitely on the louder side but sound great in my opinion.

Default Khrome Werks 3" slash-cuts

Built really well. Use 3" Drag Specialties wrapped baffle. Baffle is only 16.99 apiece through Dennis Kirk. Bought 5 pair. At 67 years old This should last my lifetime.

I bought some Cobras because the local accessory shop had a boatload and marked them way down - called Neighbor Haters maybe? Then I bought another set just to have around since I liked them so much and they were cheap enough I could leave them on when I sold the bike (only keep them for a few K miles).
