Vance & Hines 3 Round Twin Slash Slip-On Mufflers For Harley Sportster 2014-2016
Great Mufflers at a Great Price
Put a set of these on my 2016 Roadster about 300 miles ago and I'm upset that I didn't do it sooner! Install was a breeze once I figured out I had a bad front muffler clamp from the factory. I love the sound, the only draw back is that combined with a high flow air cleaner and FP3 tune, I seem to have lost some low end torque over the same set up with stock mufflers. Top end performance has improved though. I searched long and hard for real life sound comparisons between these and V&H Short Shots. I finally found a Harley dealer that had two 1200 sportsters, one with these slip ons, and one with short shots, so I'll save you some of the leg work I did.
Volume Comparison: If stock mufflers are at 0 and short shots at 100, these come in at a rough 75-80 with the standard baffles. Loud, but you never regret the volume
Tone Comparison: The mufflers have a deeper, throatier tone than the short shots, and lack that metallic sound that the short shots have at some rpms. Listening to the slip ons through all RPM's is a real joy.
Anyway, if you're considering these mufflers, I strongly recommend them.

Second set I have purchased
This is the second set I have purchased in the last couple years. The most current set I bought for my 2016 Harley Davidson Forty Eight. I was happy with the last set I got for my Iron so I went with them again. This time I was installing them and the rear pipe mount was defective. The square nut that is welded to the pipe was completely cockeyed and was not able to get the bolt to thread in. I had to jimmy rig it with a smaller bolt, washer and nut. Not to happy about that but am happy with the sound and look. Only reason for the 2 star is because of the defect.

Has the look and sound I want
Ordered quiet baffles to use with these slip-ons. Loud enough for me. So far no complaints from neighbors, just some disapproving looks. Too bad, I'm happy.
Install of mufflers wasn't hard at all. Had to cut about 8" off of fiberglass wrap and then taped edges of fiberglass down in order to get new baffles into mufflers. Also added Arllen Ness big Sucker Air cleaner and Vance and Hines Fuel pack 3.
Spent about 3 hours to do entire stage one upgrade. Very pleased with results

I just recently purchased my Iron 883 Black Denim and I just say that the bike looks awesome. However the stock mufflers were lacking. As my wife says "You're bike looks angry". After much research and what not I landed on buying these mufflers. Once I had them installed my bike has taken a different form. It sounds the way it looks. Nothing too loud but not quiet at all either. Couldn't be happier with my purchase. I truly recommend these mufflers to anyone with a stock Iron 883. Good little upgrade for a good price.

Easy Install, awesome sound.
Firstly, Revzilla were amazing. Placed the order on a Tuesday morning, the items arrived Wednesday lunch time.
Vance and Hines' quality is great. Well constructed pipes and hardware.
Fitment was absolutely spot on. Everything fits and lines up as well, if not better, than factory.
Install was a breeze. If you are a basic mechanical kind of person, the instructions seem easy to follow.
The sound of these slip ons is incredible and they yield the Harley sound you have been looking for.

Manifold heat shields not included
Great mufflers. installed on 2015 iron no problems. They are louder then my friends Rush slips on his street bob. Bottom muffler requires guard to be put on first before bolting down and installing top muffler. Does not come with manifold heat shields as pictured, Manifold heat shields are Harley Davidson part
# 64924-09 $159.95 at HD.com so 399+160 = $559. If your looking for sound only without breaking the bank get these in chrome and you will be happy you did.
