Vance & Hines Straightshots Exhaust For Harley Sportster

The quintessential classic makes its return, and it’s better than ever. Recognizing the fact that the traditional straight-cut and staggered look never goes out of style, Vance & Hines reintroduces the Straightshots with one-piece 2 1/2" full-length heat shields that yield a seamless and blue-proof appearance. Straightshots are also fitted with oxygen sensor ports for compatibility with late model Big Twins and Sportsters, and come with louvered core baffles standard. Optional quiet baffles are also available for a deeper and mellower tone.


  • Classic staggered drag pipe styling
  • Full coverage heat shields
  • Optional Quiet Baffle available separately
  • Equipped with 18mm O2 sensor ports
  • Pre 2007 models require O2 sensor port plugs (sold separately)
  • Made in the USA

Classic look and sound but plan on buying the "quiet baffles"
I purchased these pipes for an '07 XL1200R that I bought used this May.

The bike still had the stock pipes which were WAY too quiet so I knew that had to change.

After spending a considerable amount of time researching exhaust options on revzilla I settled on the Straightshots. I liked the classic look and sound. I also thought they complemented the overall aesthetic of the bike which is a nice mix of black and chrome.

The pipes arrived well packaged and the instructions were well laid out and easy to read. The overall quality seemed very nice. Construction, finish, and hardware appeared top notch.

Installation was very straightforward. Big shout out to Lemmy and revzilla for the excellent video on how to install an exhaust on a Harley. Watching that beforehand and during the installation was super helpful! I had never installed an exhaust on a motorcycle and was able to do it by myself on a Saturday morning. Basic hand tools were all that was needed plus a torque wrench for the flange bolts.

Once the pipes were on I was excited to hear how it would sound. It was LOUD... too loud actually. After riding the bike for a few weeks I decided to try the "quiet baffles that V&H offers so see what the difference was like. In my opinion these are the baffles that should be included when you buy the pipes. The stock baffles are too thin and raspy. I put quotes around "quiet baffles" because they are still PLENTY loud but thicken the sound up nicely while still providing plenty of bark. Very nice!

Overall I'm pretty happy with these pipes now that the baffles have been changed.

My only gripes are:

1. The rear pipe covers the axle nut so if you want to take your rear wheel off the rear pipe must also come off. If the pipe was just a bit shorter it could stay on the bike. Granted taking the rear wheel off is probably not something you'll do on a regular basis but it would be super convenient to not have to mess with the pipe when it's time for new tires etc.

2. I wish the heat shields were closer to a 300 degree radius instead of a 220 degree radius. The heat shields are really just a visual trick since they are the part of the exhaust that everyone sees. It's a visual trick that needs to work well in order to sell the illusion that you are looking at a round pipe. There are several angles where I can see the edge of the heat shields. Increasing the radius would prevent this and cover up more of the actual exhaust.
