Get the quiet baffles, much better sound
I had test ridden a Harley Sportster 48 that had these pipes installed and loved the deep rich sound, so I knew that I wanted these for my XL1200C.

When I installed them (not difficult, 2 hours) the sound was a lot more abrasive, lots of popping, with more of a dragster sound than the bike I test rode, this wasn't bad, just not what I was wanting for my daily commuter bike.

It turns out that the bike I test rode had the quiet baffles installed which helped give it a deeper, sort of thick bass sound. So a week later I ordered the quiet baffles, installed them (not difficult, 30 minutes) and now its perfect, still plenty loud, way less popping, and the back pressure seems to help with the bikes performance.

High quality
The Vance & Hines shortshots staggered exhaust installation went on very easy no problem's at all! The one thing Vance & Hines could do is to have a access hole in the heat shields for the set screw that hold's the baffles in when changing out the baffle's. First start up the exhaust was louder than i cared for ordered the quite baffle's installed them and that was the sound i was looking for.

LOUD
I installed the chrome shortshots on my harley forty eight on my own and it took about 45 minutes. Pretty easy install, just make sure you have the right tools for the job. These pipes are LOUD as h***. I hope your neighbors like you.

Loud, Fast, and Pretty.
I bought these pipes for no other reason than looks and sound. I hated the soft sound of the stock sportster exhaust and wanted my bike to sound like a real Harley. Iron 883, by the way. They are more than I hoped for. I've had multiple people say they sound better than their softails or Dynas. I live in Louisiana, and rode it to the Mardi Gras parade this weekend, where there are many, many bikers including the local Bandidos, and received numerous compliments on how pretty my bike is and how great the black pipes look. They've also increased my performance massively. I'm now putting out 57hp, which is over a 10% increase from the base power of 50. I don't need to kick it into 5th gear unless I'm going 65 or over anymore. Had MINOR problems with installation, because the holes for the bolts did not quite line up on the top pipe, but after loosening the bolts that attach it to the engine I was able to muscle it into place while my buddy bolted it all together. Highly recommend these pipes, and Revzilla has fantastic shipping speed. The only problem was a small almost unnoticeable scratch in the black finish, but it is minuscule and I had some matte black paint mixed to match the pipe color and fixed it flawlessly. 15 dollar fix, which is still less than purchasing from another site.

I watched so much videos before I decide to go with Short Shots. Forget what you hear in the videos... it sounds much better live! Now I have a real Harley Davidson. Like they say, loud pipes save lives. Thanks Revzilla for deliver this to Brazil!

My 48 sounds like a beast!
The product arrived earlier than I expected. Shipping was free. Installation for me was relatively easy, considering it was my first time ever. Leave the wrap on the exhaust shield, as I did, until fully installed, to avoid scratching it. Exhaust is loud but it's perfect for the city of Frisco. Great looking exhaust, and in my opinion, the best looking one for my Sportster 48.

V&H Shortshots on my Sporty 72
Absolutely awesome pipes ...I went with the black Shortshots.
I freaking love the look, they sound deep and aggressive but not obnoxious. Killer upgrade as far as I'm concerned. Great quality, easy to install. I'd recommend to anyone looking to sexy up your Sportster and add performance!

I recommend getting the V&H FuelPak and a upgraded Air Cleaner. I also picked up the FuelPak and an Arlen Ness Big Sucker Stage 1 a/c.

Thought it was about time to upgrade my pipes. Did a lot of research and finally decided on these babies.

I know I know...everyone has them but there is a reason for that....they are loud, look killer and perform

Loud pipes save lives. No one hears me on my stock pipes and after a few close call it was just time to make a move. I like the look and was ready to upgrade
Michael S on Jul 21, 2014
I wanted something loud that would still hold a somewhat older Harley look, this is what I chose.
Adam S on Jul 4, 2014
Stock sporty exhaust was far too quiet for city driving. After reading user reviews & talking to current V&H owners, I went with the Short Shots. The initial build quality had me worried, but once I put the covers over, it hide all blemishes. Pipes look & sound awesome. Some performance increase, MINOR fuel consumption increase. Overall, well worth it!
Michael S on Feb 10, 2014
Seemed like the best full exhaust for my 1200 Custom. They look fantastic and are VERY loud. Easy to install too. I bought the quiet baffles the next day but had to remove one layer of the fiberglass wrap to get just the right sound. No big deal. Everyone's preference and tolerance are a bit different.

I am looking to add the "Vance & Hines Shortshots Staggered Exhaust" to my 2008 HD - Nightster and wanted some advice on whether I need to add the fuelpack and/or order anything in addition to just the pipes? Thanks for your help!
A shopper on Jan 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If you get the exhaust you can switch them right with the stock pipes. If you do not get the fuel pack the exhaust might back fire just a little because the bike is used to a longer exhaust and is just getting rid of the excess fuel the cyclinder is burning off, makes your little sportie sounds like a badass bar hopper!!!! I was totally satisfied with my Vanes & Hines Short shots, and they only took about an hour to install. Very easy install total of 11 bolts but worth every penny!!!
i need to get the O2 plug holes, what size are the plug holes?10,12,18 mm? thanks.
A S on Sep 3, 2015
Just wondering if it is necessary to add a fuel pack or some other computer management system with the staggered shortshots on a 2010 883 Iron or will the bike still run OK if I just fit these pipes?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I was wondering the same! So I called V&H and they told me the engine will run too lean without a Fuelpak or other management system. So I bit the bullet and installed the Fuelpak and the motor runs great now!
What is the average sound output level (e.g. in decibels) that this exhaust system provides?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know the exact levels but this exhaust is LOUD! I had to fit the quiet baffles on them to lessen the noise levels. Other than that I love them. The quality is great and it makes the bike look great. It gives the bike an extra bump in power. Combine it with a good air cleaner and the V and H tuner you are set to go.
Will these pipes effect the passenger foot pegs?
A shopper on May 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, in fact they kind of make them easier to get to.
? I was wondering how the shortshot staggered exhaust would stand up to the united kingdom laws on my sportster XL883c
A S on Jun 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Dear AS,

I am guessing that UK driving laws should be similar to EU so I ll share my expiriance with you. When I ordered the v&h I also ordered the quiet buffers in order to reduse the noise as much as possible. Unfortunately, the proposed buffers by revzilla DO NOT fit the exhaust, so already I have been stopped by the police a couple of times while driving in the city centre and the sound is so loud that I do not even enjoy riding my bike... In short, if you are driving your sportster within city centers I would not recommend you buying the specific model.... If you'll be cruising around open/country side and you are not bothered by loud sounds, then go ahead!! Good luck!!!
I have factory forward controls !!!
The pics show in reg controls ?

Will they work with my F C ?
A shopper on May 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes,My friend,has '09 Nightster,w/forward controls,&"black" V&H pipes,,,you will love them!,Be sure,to get a "high flow",air filter,&let dealer do a "Stage 1" download,on the efi.The sound&power,are addicting!,Not "obnoxious",like straight pipes,,You will arrive home,w/a/ grin on your face!Everytime!,I have Road King,(Cadillac),but the 'nightster",is a Ford Cobra!,Go for it!(I let dealer install pipes,&THEY,snapped a headbolt!),something to think about,it looks easy!Be Safe!:)!!!!!&they weigh 20-30-lbs less!Reg. shocks,were killin' me,went w/Progressive,&a Mustang seat,big diff!,Ed
Hello! Do I need to buy something more with this Shortshots Staggered Exhaust to install on 2012 HD XL883N IRON? For example O2 sensor or something more...
Thanks!
SULKHAN T on May 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Nope! They came ready to install. Just took em to the local Harley dealer and they threw em on for me! Enjoy!
?I was wondering how the short shots staggered exhaust for my sportster xl883c would be in the united kingdom
A shopper on Jun 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Probably the same,as they are,on "this side of the pond"!,Except,you ride on the wrong side of the road!,The sound,is somewhere in between,"straight pipes",&"stock",&w/a K&N intake,&Stage 1 download(jet's,if ya have a carbuerator),,but is addicting!,Got a huge power band increase,sweet sound,&less weight,&they look awesome(nasty,black!)You won't be disappointed,worth the "Quid's"$!!!!!!!:)Changes whole "attidude",of bike,(&your riding!:))!!It's "Brilliant"!!!:)
So everyone I ask,seems to have a different answer!,Install a Fuelpak,,DON'T install Fuelpak,reduced mpg,&performance!,Let H.D.dealer,download/tune Stage 1,No need to do anything,after install(according to Melissa m,who called Harley dealer!)In the "old days",ya had to re-jet carb.,after any exaust/intake mod.,or would run too lean,get hot,&backfire,which may sound cool,but isn't doing engine anygood!,Sooo,,any answers,for an Analog man,in a Digital(fuel injected,'09 Nightster world!!)????Eddie M.
A shopper on Mar 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have an 09 sportster 1200...totally stock with just the Vance & Hines Short Shots so people can hear me. And they perform, I love how people's heads look around for me now

I hear and agree with the notion that if you introduce more air you need more fuel etc., thus the reprogrammer, but exhaust just dumps it out quicker...I'm 1000 miles in and see zero losses in anything. Huge gains in style & sound and minor gains in power.

I see no further engine mods required or necessary...game on and good riding buddy!
