    There is usually a reason why some things cost more than others,maybe quality.

    I emailed Rinehart in January 2014. F them, seriously. Here is the traffic.


    MY EMAIL TO RINEHART: "Hello, I own a Victory Cross Country and I have always loved your exhaust..
    Is there now or ever going to be anything in the works for exhaust for the Victory line-up?

    thanks."


    RESPONSE FROM RINEHART: "Sorry we only make exhaust for Harleys. thank you"

    MY RESPONSE BACK TO THE DOUCHES: "no, I am sorry"

    I had the Akrapovic system on my 2009 V-Max, they are not cheap, but by far the best made system I have ever had. They were made from Titanium, the welds were perfect and they fit with no modifications or problems. They also made big power numbers.

    Now I know its two different animals, but as the old saying goes "You get what you pay for".

    Check out the picture of the V-Max system...

    It seems to me that the most expensive and well-made exhaust system should at least have full coverage heat shields to hide all that discoloration. If not, it should have no heat shields and flaunt the bluing. If you start a heat shield, how about finishing it?

    When you buy a aftermarket exhaust you have 3 choices to make....performance. ..sound....appearance. ...

    Appearance may be your first choice...but performance was my first choice.

    [EDIT: Played through my stereo, it does have a nice deep tone, but really not so much better that I would drop a grand on it....]

    I don't know, could be because I'm listening to it on an iPad, but it sounds just like my stock straight pipes (with bored baffles).

    They probably put the small heat shield on for safety reasons like when you put your foot down at a light so you don't fry your leg.If I ever put a different exhaust on my bike it would be an Akrapovic.They are not too loud and they look like they are top quality.
