I hate to do it but I have to know before I buy just how loud is the V&H big radius 2 into 2? I want something that sounds friggin awesome but not so loud I can't hear myself think. Just wanted to get some opinions, I have read where with the baffles in its not bad but does it still sound mean or like stock, and without them is it just over the top loud or just right. I will put it this way I want a good roar but not something that rattles my cage constantly. Also bout to order all kinds of goddies from Low and Mean can't **** wait. I am about to completely rip this thing apart and turn it into my garage wife. Thanks for the input guys and gals! Want to order exhaust this week! L&M Fenders, Seat, and I can't decide on the lowering spring or not! **** I need help!

I had mine installed at the dealer along with the Bully controller and Kuryakyn Hypercharger.

I told them I wanted to hear them with baffles and without before they dyno'd it and tuned the Bully as it would change the back pressure if I changed my mind.

Well they had already dyno'd it for me and tuned it because they were confident I would like them with the baffles in.

They were right.

Don't know what they sound like without, might try it someday.. but they were plenty loud with them in and sound amazing.

As for the L&M stuff, I have everything you mentioned except the rear fender. Here's what mine looks like. Felt weird at first with the lowering but I'm already used to it.

Also here's a video of my LED's I installed. Can see more of the lines than from the picture:

If you get an auto tuner, it doesn't matter when you add your air but they are $500 and the $250 tuners out there like Bully and EJK have great reviews as well.

I did all three at once, but others have strongly recommended adding the fuel processor if you do anything to change the exhaust or air. Can have problems if you don't.

Worst case is you have to fiddle with your settings/remap your controller if you do the air later.

I had mine all done professionally so I wouldn't have to deal with it.
