Roadhouse Exhaust

Any body got any expereience with these exhausts?

Spotted one for sale (ebay) - it is a 2 into 1 pipe (used). Said to be loud but not too loud (anybody got any opinions?). Also if I go ahead should I consider re-jetting (on a 2004 Volusia)?

Thanks for any assistance,

Keith

They are the quietest aftermarket exhaust but still have a rumble. Here they are on my old 04 Volusia

Thanks vOLusia,

yep that looks like the pipe but the one I am looking at has serrated down tubes going to the silencer and the standard end tips instead of, what I am guessing, is the slash cut.
Thought re-jetting would be required (though seller insists that he didn't bother!).

I have had 3 sets of Roadhouse exhaust, 2 into 1 on C50 and M50, and doolies on a 1600 Kawisaki. For my money, the low rumble of a Roadhouse muffler sounds better than any other aftermarket exhaust on these 800's, but as they say they are not loud. You can order them with different tips and smooth shields or serrated shields. The serrated are polished stainless and will turn slightly yellow in time, but there is supposed to be some product that will remove that. Check the link.

They are a jigsaw to put together, just take your time and be prepared to adjust and reposition things to get them looking right.

2 into 1 with a short aftermarket muffler (that was loud )

I took a 2 into 1 system, fabricated a crossover pipe and added a muffler to the right side for a dual system. The Roadhouse 2 into 1 is the base system I added to.

When I want to read a really good Harley thread, I just turn to VolusiaRiders.com

It's an 8 yr old thread. Roadhouse exhausts are extremely hard to find since they quit making them yrs ago.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
