Preferably the Propipe.

Thank you, that helps. I want to change my exhaust at some point because the quick mod I did won't last too long. For 2-1 I really like the freedom performance, and the monster pro pipe (but that's mainly due to the low cost). For 2-2 I'm torn between the V&H big shots and the Hard Krome American classic II.

Freedom Performance doesn't make pipes for the Warrior, even though some sites say they do.

It looks like MY00141, MY00142, and MY00143 fit the warrior. Is this not true? If that's the case that sort of narrows down my options a bit lol

Way too many people have moved into the Bay Area, CA that absolutely cannot drive (safely). Loud pipes (w/torque cones) keep them aware of my presence.

Note that those are listed for the regular Road Star also, which is what they actually fit. Other members have ordered them only to have to return them.

Personally I think you can just go to loud with pipes and it's not that it's obnoxious but more it sounds rubbish and you end up upsetting the power balance with the engine torc
No baffle you get plop plop plop plop at idle I don't like the sound of plop lol
But each to there own

In the pic I run a yoshimura from a gsxr 1000 and that is just about wright
When you pull on the handle the noise is loud but at idle you can hear the engine as much as the pipe

So, there I am, riding down the road, minding my own business...

Pull away from a red light with inner city traffic. As I approach the next red light, this yuppy in a bmw starts fighting traffic to get beside me. I brace for the onslaught as he pulls up on my right and rolls his window down.

"Man! That bike is quiet! Why is it so quiet?"

I point down at the blindingly shiny chrome, so-huge-you-can't-miss-it, stock water cooler and say, "It's a muffler."

"You gotta make that thing louder so people will hear you coming."

That's a first. I've never heard anyone complain about a bike being too quiet before.


I have no problem with louder than stock, but there is a point where it is just too much.
If you are waking up the neighbors when you leave in the morning, it might be too loud.
If you can't hear the cop's sirens over your bike, it might be too loud.
If OSHA is telling you to wear ear muffs, it might be too loud.

I love the sound of my loud Big Shots but I don't think I'll be fined by OSHA but maybe the neighborhood HOA if I don't idle in and out
