Vance Hines Shortshots Staggered Exhaust For Harley Sportster 2004-2013
Loud and look great!
These short shots really improved the looks and sound of my Sportster. They were, after all, made for the sporty, and they couldn't be more perfect. After going back and forth between the short shots and the 2 into 1, I chose these and I know I made the perfect choice. The blacked out look really compliments my Sportster Iron and they look like they came from the factory-not flashy at all, which is exactly what I wanted. The sound, however, will definitely get everyone's attention! These pipes are so loud! Even though my fiancé says he won't ride behind me anymore, I think they're the perfect level when I'm riding. Loud pipes save lives! We did the install ourselves and it was relatively simple-keep the shields unattached until you install the header-this will save a major headache when you're trying to wrench it down. Excellent choice-I was not disappointed! Got the V&H Fuel Pak as well for more performance!

Easy install. Sounds awesome. Needed to install quiet baffles to reduce occasional backfire. Even with the quiet baffles the bike sounds excellent. Great quality from V&H.

Great sound, lacking in performance so I installed DK w158's and header wrap got my low end torque back and they look mean.

Look and sound I was looking for
First off shipping was ridiculously fast received the next day after order. Was definitely not expecting this quick. Price matching was easy and painless. Install took about an hour and a half nothing too difficult , however make sure you have the tools before getting started important ones will be t30 for brake rod reattachment through bracket i needed to use a t30 screwdriver vs my socket as that was all that fit through access hole in bracket; and a good swivel socket for front cylinder mounting flange nut i believe 1/2 is the size. One thing I would recommend ordering that is not listed on site is a set of exhaust gaskets, my bike is pretty low mileage so i think i was able to get away with it for now but better safe than sorry they are cheap and while you have it apart might as well replace to make a better install. the look is exactly what i wanted and the sound is about same as the screaming eagle slip-ons i had at startup but once you move and get on it you can really tell the difference.

Best pipes around
These pipes look and sound amazing. They are LOUD! They are amazing for the price and sound so perfect. Pretty easy install. I would just suggest to buy new gaskets for the exhaust because these don't come with them.

Great Sound, Easy install
These pipes are great. I installed them on my 2005 883 and am completely satisfied.(make sure you get 18mm o2 sensor plugs if your bike is carbed) These pipes were very easy to install and needed minimal tools. The pipes are very loud. Great deep and smooth sound. If you dont want your pipes VERY loud you might want to think about some baffles.

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.
