    Question Vance and Hines (Big shots or Long shots?)

    Ok guys, I have a 2008 VTX 1300R. I'm having pipes put on tomorrow. I want a little more power with lots of noise. I have narrowed it down to the Vance and Hines Big shots. I will be installing saddlebags next week. Basically are the Big Shots the pipes to go with for the noise and power and will the length be ok with saddlebags? Rob

    I have Bigshots, they're plenty low for saddlebags, and the length is a matter of preference. I like them, they sound good and actually have a bit of a "snap" to them. I put the quiet baffle in them over winter to quiet them down for the early mornings leaving home, but they still sound good, just a little lower note "throaty" and a bit quieter (less of a crack). Performance wise, they with the BAK is very noticeable in power and responsiveness.

    Question Bak

    Thanks for the reply, can't wait to hear these pipes. BAK, are you referring to the airfilter? Rob

    Yes, it's a air intake system made by Baron. There's some good reviews on this site.

    On an R, I would go with the longest pipes you can get for the look of the long swept pipe. Goes well with the R IMO. the shorter pipes look good on the C's. Sportier look. Sound difference isn't very drastic.
