I just installed a set of BUB 7's on my RKC and really like them. Can't really talk to the V&H, but the 7's have a very nice throaty rumble at idle, and when you crack the throttle, the really bark. Sure a nice change from the straight pipes that came with the bike when I bought 3rd hand. Saved me the cost of a race tuner too. Amost totally did away with the cackeling on deceleration with the straights.Guys, I need some input on these two pipes. I am going to be changing the stock out in the spring and could use some informed input. I dont want real loud but like to be heard. I've narrowed the choices to the Bub's or the V&H.
