Pros: Looks great, Sounds great, easy to install, Good price
Cons: Does not come with exhaust gasket
I wanted a deeper sound for my 2001 Yamaha 650 Vstar Classic and decided to go with the Vance & Hines or Cobra exhaust. I had seen some Vance and Hines exhausts and liked the looks. I also did some Internet research and ended up choosing the Cruzers. One of the main reasons was the price. I got mine new from Directparts.com for $311. This included shipping, which was free.
The exhaust was as expected and easier to install than I had anticipated. Everything is included except for a small copper exhaust gasket which I obtained from my local dealer. Whether a new gasket is necessary, I don't know, but for the price of $3-$4 it was recommended. One would think it would be include with the hardware.
I like everything about this system and give it 5 stars even without the gasket. Maybe that's why they don't include it ??
