Here's a video of my Two Brothers VALE exhaust for those interested and looking into getting an exhaust. The quality is excellent, looks and sounds great. Mine is the polished aluminum slip-on style.

I have yet to remove the power tip to see how much louder it is. I like the sound and loudness of it now. Not too loud, but loud enough to be heard on the freeway.

:) Awesome! Thanks, I appreciate it. I just wanted to throw out another option for exhaust on our 250's. I'm very satisfied with my exhaust and the sound.
^ I put a video up on Youtube a week ago.

It's a great exhaust but sounds a bit raspy at highway speeds.

Good enough for a single cylinder.

It has a little rasp, but I like it. :)

I recall you posting the video, but don't remember what thread. Post it again here just incase someone does a search specifically for Two Brothers and our videos will be in one spot.

Very nice! I do like my Yosh exhaust better but 2 bros is nice. IMO Akros are even nicer. Nice and throaty which helps mask the single cylinder sound. Nice bike tho:D

Thank you! It's a nice piece and I'm loving my bike. :) The Yosh exhaust looks nice. It's always cool to see a made in the US product available for our bikes, which Two Bros. is.

The Two Bros is very throaty as well. Especially now that I took the power tip out. No more rasp. :)

It would be nice to hear the two side by side in person one day.

Okay, one more video. I took the tip out. It really doesn't translate to the video very well, but now the thing is LOUD! I can see why you guys that have exhaust minus a tip to take it down 5 or so db didn't like your exhaust. It's a little too LOUD. I like it though. Sounds very throaty. No more rasp. If cars didn't hear me before, they definitely will now. I think I'll ride around without the tip for a while. I like the looks of it better too without the tip. :)

I thought exactly the opposite, which is why i like my 2bros(no tip also). Everything is subjective tho I suppose.

Quik story.
leaving bike shop yesterday, all the too cool for school HD riders hanging around outside. Start up the 250, all the HD boys have their heads on a swivel looking for where the noise is coming from. Then they realize it's coming from my little 250, the looks on their faces was like, WTF. Had a wee little grin under my helmet :D

Not too bad. I will have to remove mine to see for sure.

I have 800 miles on it and can't get into the shop for 12 days, so I can't commute everyday anymore :(

AWESOME!! I'm a former HD owner and I will never go back! Was out yesterday and turned alot of heads which never happened with my Harley. congrats on the 2 bros though. IMO any exhaust sounds better and looks better than the stock lol. Brilliant you made the snooty HD guys look. :D

Give it a try. Definitely a big difference in loudness and the sound changes as well. Has much more of a growl and is much throatier. Almost like it's just a straight pipe.

I love the bump of our single cylinder bikes. :) Haha, that's cool you got their attention. Our bikes are nice machines and I turn heads all the time. :)
