I got a 99' fxdx with SE 1 slip ons. I think they are the first ones as they say Harley davidson on the muffler rather than SE. They are quiet as hell. Is that a California thing or areall the SE1 slip-ons that quiet.

I was looking at S&S slip ons or the krome werks as they are rather inexpensive. But are they going to sound much better??

Harley makes a slash cut muffler that looks exactly like SEs but it's not. It's just a stock muffler. It says Harley Davidson on the side. I bet that's what you have. They sound just like stock mufflers because, other than looks, thats what they are.

Find some aftermarket pipes. There are many that will outperform anything HD makes.

I bet they are just stock pipes that look better!! I would say that sucks but it just makes me want new slip-ons even more and can't wait to see the difference.

SO now, I think it is between krome werks and cycle shack. Any opinions? Which are louder? perform better? sound better?

Khrome Werks

Cycle Shacks are louder but I think Khrome werks HP sound better. Performance? I have Khrome werks very happy with sound and performance.

The best 2-2 pipes you can get are either the Bartels or the Python IIIs. For cheap slip-ons, the Cycle Shack mufflers are pretty good. Still not as good as the above mentioned systems, though. The best performing exhaust, without a doubt, is a good 2-1 system (not the H-D models). Check out www.nightrider.com for their exhaust system test results. Some of the results may surprise you! :hmmm:
