With rare exceptions, straight or drag pipes with no baffles reduce performance in the lower rpm ranges; drag bikes only run WOT, after all. Will it be enough to notice? Perhaps not, as that is a fairly sporty bike. For many, the increase in noise makes a bike 'feel' more powerful, even though, when tested, it isn't. It's your bike, your ears, and your neighbors, after all.

Pretty Loud and lose a lot of low end Torque .. But if you like them fine I just won't be riding close behind you .. Owned a lot of Sportsters and found Vance and Hines Baffled Straight Shots had a Great Sound without being overly loud and plenty of Torque ..
