Decided on Two Bros over Vance & Hines for availability of DB killer if needed. Everyone is sold out. Two Bros told me next batch is out for coating and would be few weeks. Happened to call Revzilla (showing "Out of Stock"). They said they had one. Bought it over the phone. 3 days later and installed this evening. I painted their ridiculous shiny clamp and bolt with flat black grill paint. Then about 10 mins to install. Incredible sound. Less than half the weight of stock pipe. Loud but not neighbor complaint loud unless you are at 5K through the 'hood. Pics:

Great pictures.
Any plans for a video? I鈥檇 like to hear some more examples of the sound in drive by situations.
I鈥檇 like more volume but nothing obnoxious.
thanks for sharing

That's about as good as any exhaust video is going to get to showcase with a thorough review:

I could not do any better than these guys (since my neighborhood limited to 20mph), so here you go:

LOL. Just posted same. The Two Brothers Vid is also a good comparison to stock.

Agree his vid is best. But NOTE: I believe he said DB silencer is included. It is NOT. It is a separate $80 part. Two Brothers sent him this for review and TOLD him to be sure and point out it is separate. Shows the exhaust allows the engine character to still be heard. But the low base rumble is still there. And after a few minutes of bike computer adjusting, there is just a little bit of burble in the exhaust. Though I'm not sure I'll want to run bags, and so the upswept design is in question, I'd give the exhaust 9/10. Finish is superior, and the carbon fiber end cap and shiny insert look awesome.

I called Two Bros and Vance & Hines. Neither is planning to make a straight pipe for this bike. Will have to pick another option if you want to run bag on the right.

This is the thing stopping me from ever buying those, but I really want to get a better one... but I want saddle bags too

How's the performance @Pseudo-Fed ?

I'd hooked up my Two Bros slip on for the 500 onto my 1100 and had it on for 50 miles or so but there was a significant lag on initial acceleration. It's the same pipe, but the 1100 model has a little more length in connection pipe, which could conceivably help with the issue on my set up.

No issues. If anything a little better after saving a few pounds and letting her breath. The idle kind of stumbled a little for the first few mins after first start. Guessing the computer was figuring out the new tune. No issues since.

Great! I didn't have many miles on the stock pipe, but the the new pipe sounds and feels great. LifeOfBurch in his video after installing the TBR pipe says he thinks he feels a little more response.

Two Bros we鈥檙e potentially going to make a straight pipe, not upsweep for the Rebel 1100. I tried to email them about this potential but emails bounced back. Strange.

I asked Vance and Hines about the same thing and they said... no they are not going to make anything else but the upswept one they have... hopefully TBR will.

If Two Bros would sell non-upsweep pipes with their same fantastic sound would be a big seller and make it much easier to attach a bag.
But first they need to fix their email link.

I am not sure on those. They look a bit better, but the back tip doesn't seem any lower than the stock muffler, and its the highest point that matters the most. I am not sure why they can't just make them actually straight... parallel to the ground, instead of at angles.
Besides of that, the stock exhaust IMO looks kind of mature. Actually I like it, only the sound could be deeper.

Idunno, looks like the Miller exhaust is still an inch lower than the top of the stock muffler. Looking at pictures side by side. Kinda looks like it sits at the mid point of the stocker. Still, of they could make it sit parallel with the bottom of the stock muffler, that would be great.

I agree. If it wasn't for the clearance and sound issues, I would have kept it installed.
