Vance & Hines SS2R

This bike came with an Vance & Hinesa SS2R slip on included but not installed. I figured, what the hell, I'll toss it on and if it's too loud I will just take it back off. It took maybe five minutes to do the swap on the VFR. It has a nice deep tone with out being obnoxious that builds into a pleasing wail when you pour the coals to her. I really like the sound, and when you're in cruise mode, the sound doesn't get on your nerves. I can live with it around town and at highway speeds. It only really raises it's voice when you're working the throttle over with your right hand. When idling and at slow speeds it has kind of a small block chevy vibe. All in all, I like it and plan to leave it on. I can't tell if there is any performance difference positive or negative, I'm just glad I didn't have to change the jets.

I like the look of the carbon unit, but beggars can't be choosers. I'm sure your R1 sounds great as well. I dig the sound of my unit and the looks as well.
