Default Bub exhaust or Vance and Hines Big Shots?

I'm not familiar with Bub (Bdi) exhaust at all. I have not heard or see anything about them, until i bought this warrior. A few things. I assume the bike has been lowered. This exhaust scrapes to me, rather easily. The bike sounds great when revving or anytime on the throttle. However, at idle it's rather quiet. Can barely hear it. It has also has some color distortion near the top of the pipes. So i'd like to replace them as soon as possible and give the bike a little bit of a cleaner look. So two questions. I've heard the Big Shots will not generally scrape? And will the Big Shots be louder overall than the Bub exhaust?
Thanks for any insight.

I'll let other talk about clearance, but if you do want bigshots, I have a set that came on my bike I've been thinking about selling. In almost new shape.

I have the big shots and like them a lot. Mine is lowered and I don't scrape them, my pegs will scrap but not the pipes.

Loudness is based on baffles. There are two that V&H offer, not sure of the bubs but I think they use the monster baffle.

I had Big Shots on my 04. Even with it lowered the foot pegs scraped long before the pipes would have. I can't compare them to the Bubs, sound wise, but they were pretty loud. Much louder than my Speedstar gen2 with Thunder Monster baffles.

Default Pacific coast star exhaust

I just installed a PCS 2-1 exhaust, black. I don't know how it sounds yet, I have the tank and fenders off, getting painted. Anyone here have this on their bike? My old pipe is a V&H 2-1, as soon as I can hear the new one, I'll probably sell the V&H.

love the look of the PCS's would be curious to know if the tip will scrape. I have Bub Jug huggers and they scrape.

That's a mean looking pipe. Curious as to how that sounds as well.

Hmm. Very tempting. How much would you be asking?

The big shots will be easier to find! The PCS pipe I think the coating will start to flake off.
