I just installed the loose cannon on my 750 and it sounds great. Huge difference over the stock muffler and a good price too. I can't speak for the other brands cuz haven't heard them in person but I am definitely satisfied w this pipe

I have the Loose Cannon fitted since the last 8 months and it's great. The sound is superb. In my opinion it's much better than almost all other options not only because of the sound, the quality and also considering the price point.

Just an update on the aftermarket muffler.

I decided to go with the firebrand muffler, screamin eagle air cleaner and the race tuner. Highly recommend for anyone sitting on the fence making the aftermarket change.

yes, I have the firebrand loose cannon with the db killer baffle.
not too loud, now. it was a bit too loud with out the baffle for me.


I paid $249 USD with free fast shipping! the db killer baffle cost $20 and $9 shipping. I wished I would have ordered them together and saved the shipping cost. but I am very satisfied with firebrand. it's very easy to put on yourself, didn't take more than about 15 min.



I love the sound and the price. has a great rumble to it with out being too obnoxious.
I highly recommend this muffler, with out any doubts at all!

Rock 270, Which website you used to import? I am in the process of getting through the loan and will be buying one soon. I am in a dilemma that should I get these mods from the HD when I get delivered or should I get it done outside?
Please advice.

I paid around AU$1300 From harley here in perth for the muffler, race tuner and air cleaner fitted (also got a helmet included).

I assume you should be able to get the firebrand mufflers from most dealers now, after looking into the option I decided on the firebrand and I couldnt be happier

Thanks Chdhlr!!
Much appreciated. I am waiting for my P's which I hopefully get it on 30th. Then go and book the bike here in Melbourne. I know some of the dealers are good. Don't want to pay more than the average price what any other dealer charge. They have quoted me the heat shields. Do we require that? They did show me Loose cannon and screaming eagle. Just got confused with the names. And the quote they gave me only has part numbers. :(. I will ring them to confirm. Which helmet did you end up buying? Bell or the Harley Davidson one?

Cheers,

No problem I was in the same boat!

I got a basic harley helmet, which will do me fine until I finally find a decent fitting helmet I really like.

Personally the heats shields I don't think are essential, however I did find that going in store and checking the accessories out and seeing what other people had had as extra accessories onto their bikes helped me decide on what I did and didn't want. On the harley Australia site you can download a catalogue with all the latest accessories....maybe worth checking that out.

As far as mufflers go, I was pretty much sold on getting a V&H, until I read about and checked out the firebrand, the fact it sounded better, it was cheaper and in my opinion looked more suited to the bike made me choose it. ( I'll stop doing the firebrand sales guys job now..,), I also believe that firebrand was established by the ex-senior staff of vance and hines so they are not new to the game (if I am correct...sales guy?)

Hope this helps.

I learnt from Vic roads that they do not allow any performance improvements for L's & P's.. Does changing intake will increase the Horse power??? Do we have to change the air intake? I can see some of them have changed and some didn't. Not sure which way should I go. I wouldn't like to get a non complaint bike as I will be on my P's. Thanks for the info on accessories list. I down loaded it. Also got a response from V&H exhaust saying I can get them from Any peter Stevens. They are pricey though!!
I will probably bother you when I am close to do my booking.

Cheers,
Ajay

When I was in the HD dealership in Brisbane they had a few Street 500's with different aftermarket exhausts so I could hear the differences. The Firebrand Loose Cannon definitely stood out from the crowd for me. If I remember correctly I got it for around $400 with installation so it was ready when I picked the bike up.

I'm a new member and just saw this thread, so I thought I'd comment on my experience. I bought my 750 from a good friend who decided he needed a bigger bike. Before selling it to me, he had installed Sportster rear shocks, an Intruder intake, Vance & Hines FuelPak3 and a Vance & Hines Comp Series muffler. I love the sound, as it's nice and mellow without being outrageously loud. I like the FuelPak, because you can not only change the mapping very easily, but also access some of the bike's sensors to show things like coolant temp, intake temp, torque, horsepower, fuel mileage, speed and what gear you're in. I use my iPhone as an instrument panel while riding, which is really nice due to the Street's lack of instrumentation and a gear indicator.Point is, if you're looking to improve your ride, I suggest you look into the Vance & Hines product line for the Street.

I wonder if the FP3 would do anything for my setup??

I truly believe it would from what all I've read.


with the muffler and air filter you are running now, the bike really needs to be remapped, it is very likely running lean.


the fp3 IMO is the best value (not the most featured or expensive) in constant and sorely needed fuel mapping available.


I will not install a free'r flowing air filter until I can get the fp3.
