    It will be out eventually. I am waiting for it. People are being way impatient about these pipes. I mean if you really want the big radius you wil wait and if you really want new pipes period youll go buy cobras or HKs. I believe the big radius will be the best well made pipe with the best HP so I will wait until 2009 if I have to. I do wish V and H would come out with a few more pipes for the raider though to choose from. My bike sounds great without the baffles and has really helped me stay patient. I wanna put a PRBAK and PCIII on, but I dont wanna get my bike dynoed twice so I will be doing my stage one all at once.

    Totally agree. I really believe it will be worth the wait. I almost broke down and got the Cobra swepts. Glad I didn't. I found a farmer with a plasma cutter instead and got the baffle plates out of my stock pipes. Will keep me happy till I get the VH.

    They were and still are my first choice but I didn't want to wait through this summer for pipes. I got the cobra dragsters which sound nice and are good quality. I'll keep them on until the V&H come out and then sell them and get the V&H.

    I'll be getting the V&H 2 to 1 big radius once I get a Raider.

    Just a note, I was looking at some pictures of the big radius, and it looks to me that V&h will have the same problem as the cobra swepts, right where the head pipes start to turn back up, they hang down below the frame just like the swepts do. Looks like some potential grinding to me?
    It is hard to tell from the angle of that photo. I trust V&H to have put in enough R&D to minimize any issues. If you look at some of the photos of the stock pipes, from certain angles they look that way too. Hopefully it is not a problem.

    I went ahead and ordered the Speedstar pipes, putting them on next Thursday, If I don't like them and if V&H ever comes out with the Big Radius I will switch over at that point. By the way, picked up the bike yesterday, put 200 miles on in and got rained on!!!!!!!!

    I am waiting for the V&H pipes as well. They should be out soon. I am just not going to pre-order like some of the sites give the option of. I don't want my money hung up when I don't know when I will get the pipes.
