Drag pipes

Evolution Drag Pipes are made from 16 gauge steel and fit all 1986-2003 Evolution Sportster engines. The front pipe is 60 inches long, and the rear pipe is 40 inches. The front pipe mount has an integral brake pedal stop, and the rear pipe mount includes a Paughco #718SBR-2 hanger bracket. Drag pipes are legal for racing in closed courses and competitions, but they are not legal for street use.

If you plan on riding the drag strip on your Sportster, you may want to get a set of drag pipes for the engine. They provide the best performance when revving between 4000 and 7000 rpm. However, drag pipes will also kill the low end torque. For those who shift at 3500 rpm, a pair of drag pipes will be much more useful than a torque cone. Drag pipes will also give you a cool sound and better performance, and they’ll look great, too.

If you want to get the ultimate sound, consider the SHARKROAD 3-step exhaust pipes. They look like mini grenades and offer maximum loudness. For stock swing arm Sportsters, exhaust kits come with mounting hardware. Custom mounts are necessary for the Evolution Sportster exhaust systems. They are not recommended for stock bikes, as they’ll require custom-made exhaust systems. So, don’t compromise on performance! If you’re thinking about adding a set of drag pipes to your Sportster, make sure to check for the right type of mounting hardware.

Cobra Power

The Cobra Power exhaust for Sportster is a high-performance motorcycle exhaust system that adds more than just a unique look. With its crossover technology and chrome cone megaphone muffler, this system is designed to boost overall power from the idle to the red line. Its 2.25″ chrome exhaust pipes feature full-length 222-degree heat shields for high-performance power. The Cobra Power exhaust for Sportster also retains the motorcycle’s classic lines and clean, classic look.

Cobra’s new El Diablo exhaust system is the result of hours of R&D. Not only does it promote more power and torque than stock, but it also improves oil dipstick clearance. The four-inch machined aluminum exhaust tip has an etched Cobra logo and a reverse cone shape. Full-length heat shields help give the pipe a sleek, seamless appearance. Cobra exhaust systems are made in the U.S.A.


If you want a new exhaust system for your Harley-Davidson Sportster, then the Sharkroad exhaust system might be the best choice for you. This exhaust system was designed for Sportsters made from 2014 to 2022. The system features a chrome inner tip and a 222 degree heat shield to maximize the sound of your motorcycle and boost your performance. The Sharkroad exhaust also comes with a PowerPort that enhances general power from the redline to idle.

The Vance and Hines Short shots are the most popular aftermarket exhaust for Sportsters. These exhausts fit stock Sportsters and have a nice, not too loud sound. They come in chrome or matte black finishes. Make sure you check the exhaust system for problems like loud pops and backfire. If you can hear the backfire from several kilometers away, then there is something wrong with the exhaust system. To fix this problem, you need to clean the gasket surfaces and make any necessary repairs.

Another important factor is the model. You need to check the exhaust compatibility of the Sportster with the model you have. Some exhausts are not compatible with certain models. This is because the company makes updates to their models every year. Some models are larger than others, while others are shorter. Therefore, it is important to check your motorcycle’s manufacturing year before installing the exhaust system. You can purchase the SHARKROAD 2 into 1 exhaust if you want a more aggressive sound and clean look.

Cobra’s 909 2-Into-2

The Cobra 909 is a full-exhaust system that is legal only for racing vehicles. This system combines classic styling with peak performance technology to deliver maximum power gains. Its 222-degree heat shields and distinctive inner tip will enhance the performance of your vehicle from idle to redline. The Cobra Speedster 909 features Cobra PowerPort technology, which increases overall power from redline to idle.

Cobra’s 909 2-Into-2 exhaust looks like a true dual exhaust, but it’s not. Its short runners and crossover will make it difficult to take advantage of scavenging, and it won’t have the best performance down low. The length of the exhaust runner is crucial. A 36-inch runner is a minimum. To avoid this, you can purchase a long runner for the Cobra 909.

Cobra’s 3″ Round Twin Slash Slip-On

A high-performance three-inch slip-on muffler from Cobra adds performance without adding additional weight. Its 3-inch pipe and replaceable baffles give it a sleek appearance and Vance & Hines exhaust sound. Available in chrome or black with a transparent coated aluminum ‘Race Pro’ tip, it’s an excellent choice for your sportster.

Featuring a two-inch continuous velocity baffle design and stainless steel mesh, the 3″ Round Twin Slash Slip-Ons from Cobra are one of the best choices for your sportster. The dual-mode design means that they fit perfectly with stock head pipes. They are made in the U.S.A., but do not meet emissions regulations for pollution controlled vehicles.

A classic look and good sound are two major benefits of Cobra’s Round Twins. They fit perfectly and complete the Sportster 1200’s look. These exhausts provide decent horsepower and torque while still maintaining a clean, free flowing design. And the Cobra Round Twin is made from stainless steel, which makes it corrosion resistant. You can choose the right muffler for your Sportster by checking out the reviews.

Dr. Jekill & Mr. Hyde

Designed to meet the demands of the Clubstyle scene, the Dr. Jekill & Mr. Hyde exhaust for sportster is available in a brushed or matte black finish. These exhausts have two distinct personalities – one tame and one aggressive. In 1997, Dr. Jekill & Mr. Hyde began manufacturing these exhausts for motorcycles, and today they’re sold in 43 countries worldwide.

The Harley-Davidson Sportster is one of the most honest motorcycles on the road. The paint is one of the most captivating and the sportster can look even more stunning with an exhaust from Dr. Jekill & Mr. Hyde. This exhaust can be installed on any Harley-Davidson model, including the Dyna, Touring, and Vrod. It can also be used on BMW motorcycles, including the R 1200 GS (A), R 1200 RS, and R Nine T, as well as Indian motorcycles.

If you’re in the market for a new sportster exhaust, consider the Jekill & Mr. Hyde Company from the Netherlands. They make an exhaust system that allows the rider to select between three different acoustic modes. The exhaust’s sound is electronically adjustable, allowing the rider to choose between the stock Harley sound, a soft Rumble, and a powerful, loud roar.
