Smile Slip-on exhaust

I was thinking about getting a slip on muffler for my 08' Warrior. Does anybody have a good recommendation? I'm looking for something louder than stock, but not as loud as straight pipe. Any help would be great.

I have a Dale Walker Holeshot slipon. Its almost as quiet as stock when idling but comes to life when you get on it.


The Roadhouse I think has a better tone (Deeper) but it still is a bit bulky and cone shaped.


Theres the D&D slipon thats been discontinued. Some say it sounds like a small block v8. I couldnt get mine to seal to the header correctly so I never got to really find out for myself. One of these days Ill pound it round again and use some sealant.


There is the Barons Sport Nasty. I like the looks of this one alot. Never heard one in person. Looks alot like the Dale Walker. If I found this one first, I would have bought this one instead of the Hoelshot. I heard this one is a bit louder.


And finally there is the Bub Slash cut. Never heard one in person. I dont like the bend and the megaphone style.


If there are any more out there, I dont know about it.

theres also the cobra slip on that mimics the bub slash cut cept the slash is angled out instead of down, i personally like the look of the bub over the cobra but both are the best looking slip ons imo

I had the BUB Slash-cut slip-on for a few years. It was loud and sounded good at idle and while riding. The only complaint, if there was any, was that when I rolled of throttle I heard a tinny rattle. Loved it otherwise. I switched over to the black Roadhouse last weekend, and I love it. Deep idle, acceleration, rolling off, and is sexy as ****. Take a look.

There IS a sound clip on YouTube of the Sport Nasy. I used the 'Tube to make my decision. Just about all the pipes have a sound bite, just dont be too specific in your search. Try 'Road Star exhuast' for a search query.

Thanks for the help everybody! I like the Holeshot and Roadhouse sound, but I can't find any place online that sells them. Anybody know of a place? Thanks again everone. Ride safe!

I have both the Road house and the Cobra slip-on. I actually have a youtube sound bite of the roadhouse YouTube - 2008 Warrior Roadhouse Slip-on exhaust.
I think Roadhouse just went out of business.

I bought the Roadhouse off a fellow member here in SoCal. Bad thing, The roadhouse end cap screws are too small and I had to grind them off, re-drill and tap the holes and add 4 more allen head cap screws for a total of 8. No big deal, but, it had to be done.

I also bought the Cobra off a 4m member, I like the looks of it. Plus it gives a little bit more clearance for my saddleman luggage.

I did the stock exhaust modification found on the forum and it gave a lot more sound and reduced some of the popping. I am very happy with the results as i like the look of the stock water heater. check this out
