I've had the Cobra Short Shots for approximately six months and they're the best after market product you could put on your VTX.I had my local mechanic install them in about one and a half hours. They look fantastic,they sound awesome.......LOUD....ooh yeah! Everyone admires them and makes comments about the pipes and how beautiful the Honda VTX 1800 C looks with them on. Although make sure you install a Power Commander Fuel Processor,it'll run and idle much smoother and cleaner.At idle it has a loud (but not too loud) rumble,and when you want it not to be too noisy(like when you see a police car)I shift up to top gear and she'll coast along quietly.But when you want to give the VTX some throttle,she sounds like a Gattling Gun flatout.........Absolutely Awesome.I ran my VTX for a couple of days before I could install the Power Commander and the noise was like an untuned,backfiring,obnoxious hot rod.But after installing the Power Commander the exhaust note was even and smooth,(But still loud).People comment and say "It sounds better than a Harley".The Police will fine me soon for "excessive noise" I'm sure of that,but I don't care! I've also bought a set of Quiet Baffles to put in if I have to take it over the "Pits" for inspection on EPA on noise pollution. In my opinion the "Cobra Short Shots" are the best exhaust pipes on the market. Regards.......Peter
