I've put a little over 10,000 miles on Alley Kat mufflers. I have enjoyed them and I can't tell any difference in performance. At first I drilled out the stockers to get a sound I wanted. I had tons of dead spots in the throttle when I did that! :cry:

The Alley Kats are polished stainless steel. They should last as long as the bike! LOL... The Kats sound like a real mellow glasspack. :D

If I needed another set for a reason, I would buy Alley Kats again.

(Can't believe I got two pics on here!...Yea Red! LOL!!)

My recent experience

I just installed Torq Master mufflers on my 03 GL 1800 this week. I love the sound. It is a deep growl. I have not reset the ECM since I put them on but I do not notice any change since installing them.
They are easy to install in about 30 minutes. I would recommend them if you want good sound with out excessive noise.

Is it torq master or torq monster ? Any type of fuel mgt needed ? I have been riding vtx1800 and it required a fuel mgt so as not to run lean.

I also have Torq Masters on both my bikes. Everything about them is great, but one big advantage over any others is you can add a second baffle to quiet them right back to stock sound for long trips if you want.

Do you guys are with the baffles in or out :?:

Baffles

My bike has not required the ECM or fuel management. I just took off on a 250 mile ride and it reset itself. I ride with the silencer out. I have a set on the way, which I may use on long trips but so far I love the sound. It is very mellow, like the growl of a Valkyrie. It is a little harder to hear the CB, but I just turn it up and I hear fine.
