    Hello all, just purchased 2008 v star 1100 silverado, getting ready to add new exhaust. I have been told that without spending between $800 to $1000, that the best choice for a new exhaust would be the cobra slashcut slip-ons. My questions are as followed:

    1. will they be louder than my v star 650 which had slip-on drags

    2. are the slash cuts 2" or bigger, I can't find info other than picture

    3. have any of you the same pipes and are you satisfied

    4. will these pipes be comparable to other exhaust such as vans and hines or samson or hard-krome

    Basically I love a big sound, I though about Samson Warlords or the Hard-Krome, but I don't want to spend too much money, anyone got any input?

    Thanks for the info, it was very helpful. I was reading some feedback off of another forum about modified slip-ons in which the person basically drilled out the baffles. Were can I found out about baffle removal, is it recommended, and will it make that big of a difference in sound, or should I wait until I get the pipes to decide if it's an option? Thanks again

    i plan on doing this before i actually decide on whatever pipes i get. seems pretty well done.

    Do you have to adjust carbs after this mode?

    I haven't actually done it yet, but from what I've read you shouldn't have to do any readjusting with this mod. It is the last baffle which as far as I can tell is basically nothing more than volume control. Still plenty of back pressure from the other baffles. So my answer is gonna be no, but I could be mistaken.

    I have an 07 and drilled out the last baffle and plugged the ais. I like the sound and have no problems with running. You could try it if you don't like it then you can buy the pipes. With pipes you will need to adjust the carbs

    I done the holesaw mod to my 07 classic and i like it. i see no need to buy aftermarket pipes. ais still intact no need to adjust carbs. pops a little on decel but i sorta like it.

    In the jack phelps mod they say to use a 1-1/2 and a 2-1/2 holesaw. that is for pre 06 models. 06 and newer you will need 1-1/4 and 2-1/4 holesaws
