The best option for your Sporty.
I purchased these pipes on a whim for my '09 XL1200N after reading some extremely positive reviews about them. I was really leaning toward the Shortshots until I read many reviews stating that their performance was poor and they were TOO loud. I know V&H pipes have a reputation for poor performance on the fuel injected Sportsters, but I figured I would give them a shot. Here's my experience.

MY PREVIOUS SETUP:
Before I got these pipes, I had the Cycle Shack slip-on mufflers, a drop in K&N air cleaner and I decided to put a Dobeck performance controller on it as well, just in case so I could have to option to change out parts later and still be able to change the fuel "maps" (or whatever they are called). Overall, this setup provided little performance but gave me the sound and slightly smoother idle than I had with my stock setup. The overal pitch and decible level of the bike was mid-low pitch and much louder than stock.

INSTALLATION:
Removal of the old setup is quite simple, the hardest part was removing the O2 sensors from the pipes - PB blaster is your friend. The installation is pretty straight forward, however, I had a heck of a time getting the pipes past the cooling fins on the heads. I did not break off any fins but I did have to bend the pipes to fit around them to the exhaust ports. Also, the manufacturer highly recommends new head exhaust gaskets - I like to aire on the side of caution so I replaced these as well.
Another install tip, make sure the support bracket that mounts underneath the main drive belt cover is loose when you bolt it to the pipes. Otherwise, your pipes will not be lined up to the bracket. After you mount the pipes to the bracket and tighten the mating bolts, torque the head exhaust bolts, THEN proceed to torque the bracket and re-install the main drive belt cover. Otherwise your system will be preloaded and preload means broken bolts.

POST-SIDESHOTS INSTALL:
I've heard it is VERY bad to run a new, free-flow exhaust setup and air cleaner without adjusting the fuel maps - don't be the guy that knows from experience not to do this.
I installed a Roland Sands "Turbine" air cleaner assembly as a supporting modification - you can see my review on that seperately, however, I do believe this is a necessary supporting mod. After installation (pipes, air cleaner and Dobeck adjustment), I could audibly hear that the tone and decible level had become immensley different. The exhaust pitch had become VERY deep (vastly deeper than the slip-ons) and the decible level was noticably louder than the cycle shack mufflers (not a LOT louder, but louder nonetheless). The combination of these two characteristics turned that moderate motorcycle sound into a big motorcycle sound. I'm talking concrete trembling, panty dropping, annoy your neighbors goodness.

ROAD TEST:
I have not yet been able to ride with my half helmet on to get the full effect of what it sounds like while riding (the weather has been negligible), however, I can tell you that the sound is vastly improved (backroads and highway) and the speed (at least the response) of the bike appears to have improved quite a bit. I can feel the front end of the bike lift with gustav when I jam on the throttle. I always hate to say that the bike feels faster after these mods were installed, however, it really does seem to have picked up some power. Again, this could just be how it feels to me because of the new parts.

If you are considering these pipes, I would strongly suggest that you also get a fuel tuner and a high flow intake for maximum effect.
Also, if you are considering buying these pipes, do not hesitate as they are look stunning, sound mean and perform well (with the correct supporting mods).

I highly recommend this product.

Good Pipes
I had these installed by the dealer on my Nightster in 2011 when I bought the bike brand new. These pipes sound amazing, loud, throaty, and deep. After 6 years the head shields have got all sorts of chips and dings in them, one of the brackets broke and now I have a tinny sounding rattle at certain RPMs, I contacted Vance and Hines about replacing the heat shields, the cost, almost as much as the whole system. I will be removing the pipes and wrapping them, the blacked out look of the heat shields is an awesome look at first, but does not stand the test of time. Other than that I can't really say anything negative about these pipes, they are exactly what I was looking for in style and sound.

Does this fit 214 Sportster (XL883N)?
A shopper on Apr 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: yep
Will the side shots fit on my 2016 48?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Would be worth e-mailing or calling Vance and Hines because they are the best looking sportster pipes. Their website does not list these sideshots as compatible with your 2016 48.
Will this fit a 2014 HD 48 without ABS? I asked V&H directly but got no answers.

Do these pipes come with flanges?
