Default Aftermarket EPA approved exhaust?

Are any of the aftermarket offerings on exhaust systems DOT/EPA approved? Seems that with all of the offerings out there that there has to be someone who actually manufactures a system that looks better but is quiet enough to get through a traffic stop.

Just curious at this point, have been thinking about Harley's stage one kit with the SE pipes, but am not sure yet what I want to do. 1500 bux plus for upgrades and risking tickets, impoound, etc, doesn't make any sense at all.

Also, does anyone who runs the actual Harley stage one reflash with SE slip ons have any performance reports? Do they actually make any difference as opposed to stock?

I've done some research myself and far as I've found only SEs are EPA stamped and thus "street legal".

Yep, I installed the SE Stage I set up on my '07 Heritage. Air cleaner, download and slip-ons. It actually made a difference you could feel in the seat of your pants. The mufflers are just a little louder at idle but have a nice roar at wide open throttle, or highway speeds. And as far as my research goes, the SE slip-ons are the only mufflers out there that have the EPA stamp on them.
