Every other bike on the road is running big radius. I think 2 into 1 looks good on a Fatboy, they sound good too.

I like my pro streets. Get lots of compliments on sound and looks. Only seen one other person with them, but see big radius all the time. Researched as much as I could before purchasing and these seemed to be one of the better performing 2into2's. Also here good things about the hooker troublemakers if you prefer that style.

Curious, what gives the Basanni 2n2 better performance than the Radius 2n2? Does it have baffles to create some back flow for a lil better low-mid range or? Baffles would also give it a deeper, throatier sound... I "think" you can add v&h baffles to the Radius - not sure.... Do a search on baffles, lots of discussions on this... I am not trying to talk you into the Radius or Basanni, just curious why differences in the two 2n2's...

i have the vance & hines longshots and love them. as for turning blue, well i saw a dresser that turned his vance & hines longshots blue, so much for them not turning blue. i havent had any problems and they have been on my bike for more than 10 years.

First, Bassani's are equal length pipes instead of unequal lengths like the V&H.
Second and most impotant, they are a three step header, where the V&H is a simpler to make two step.
My new Rineharts are also three step, and the seat of the pants performance is very noticeable. The three step pipes also have a smaller initial header pipe with a larger baffle. That dramatically deepens the sound.

i have the pro streets on both my bikes, i like the sound and performance but they will discolor on you and it wont matter how well tuned the bike is,i suggest wrapping them right off the bat or go with the black ones,I am old school and like dirty looking pipes adds character.p.s. after an hour on the road your head will be fricken ringing lots better than a loud radio

This is what I thought... Add baffles to the radius, create some back pressure, it would give ya some low to mid and deeper sound...


thanks!
