Default Need help picking new mufflers

Just bought a 06 Roadster. Appears stock. Looking for new mufflers that have a little more sound ( one up from stock) and hopefully let it breath better for more low/midrange power. Lighter is good too. AC and re jet are next. Any suggestions. Looking at Pythons and Khrome Werks. Which is quieter. Any others similar?

I had Khromewerks tapered slip one. Nice sound but not an anti social racket. Never had any complaints about the noise. Also a noticeable difference in performance if used with a high flow air filter and tuner

Found a well respected local mechanic. His opinion for my needs is Python slip ons. Since I’m locked down 1000 miles from my tools I think I’ll run with his choice since free installation is in the price.

Don't forget to come back with a report on them. Sound/power etc.

i figured most slip on mufflers were fairly similar, so i shopped price.
i found a set of drag speciality, 1.75" baffle, turn out, slip ons.
drag speciality slip on mufflers were made by cycle shack.
cycle shack mufflers got pretty good reviews, performance wise
they are known to be pretty loud!
it was a discontinued part number, but new in the box.
i paid $90 shipped to my door.
price tag on the box was $183.99

im waiting on new cross over gaskets to install them.
old mufflers are off.
