Great advice Kiwi Steve. I use to have a pair of Cobra slip-ons for my VTX 1300C. They sound great and not to load if you don't punch it but punch it and they really come alive.Google "VTX1300 slip on exhaust'', Cobra make a set or sets. If your existing pipes are the right diameter then you could buy a set of cobra slip ons. Maybe you can source a set of slip ons just based on the pipe diameter, Cobra make a Boulevard slip on set that fits the VTX1300.
