There are plenty of exhaust manufacturers out there for the American V-twin crowd, but few have the experience and credentials that even come close to that of Vance and Hines (V&H;). With more than 30 years of very successful racing experience, founders Terry Vance and Byron Hines took what they learned from constantly winning and continually learning on the drag strip and applied their knowledge to creating great performing exhaust systems for production bikes.
Just like on the track, V&H; has continued to innovate, and improve and have become one of the most well-known and respected exhaust manufacturers in the American V-Twin industry. With a huge assortment of products, V&H; most likely has a system that will fit your bike year/model. For example when it came to looking for an exhaust for our nearly 15-year-old Softail Springer, we wanted the trifecta: looks, sound, and performance.
While perusing through the V&H; website the Side Shots ($628.95) immediately caught our attention and we felt they were a perfect fit for the look and style of our project Springer. The V&H; Side Shots are sleek, compact, and aggressive looking. They feature a 2-into-2 design with the pipes cutting downward and across towards the front of the swingarm and end in slash cut tips. The Side Shots are available with chrome or ceramic black heat shields. We chose to go the chrome route.
