Product Description


Cobra Drag Pipes Exhaust System

Drag pipes have always been a favorite because of their overall simplicity and clean lines. But unless you're going full throttle all the time, they're not the most functional. That's where Cobra's drag exhaust comes in. It gives you that same straight pipe look, but also includes their removable power cores for better tuning, sound and overall performance.

And there's no need to worry if you decide to do a little dragging and get these pipes really hot. That's because they also feature Cobra's signature triple-layer chrome heat shields that always shine.

Exhaust fits great on my 2000 shadow 750 ace. It's definitely louder but sounds great. Deep low rumble. Nice pipes for the money. They arrived quickly and in perfect shape.

Questions & Answers

  • If I leave baffles in do i have to rejet carbs? I own a 2004 Honda Shadow Spirit VT1100C.

    By: Moeman

    While you can probably get away with installing the Drag Pipes exhaust system by itself and leaving the baffles in, to get the best possible throttle response and engine performance, it's always best to get some sort of fueling modification device. Basically, any time you change the way air gets into or out of, the motor, you'll want to adjust jetting appropriately to maximize any performance gains available from the new setup.

  • Can I put these on my bike without rejetting?


    By: VW

    While you can probably get away with installing the exhaust by itself, to get the best possible throttle response and engine performance, it's always best rejet the carburetor for maximum performance. Basically, any time you change the way air gets into or out of, the motor, you'll want to adjust fueling appropriately to maximize any performance gains available from the new setup.

    By: Staff

  • Does this system include the exhaust gaskets?

    By: Trey

    No, Cobra exhausts do not include exhaust gaskets. Provided the OEM exhaust gaskets are still in good shape, you can re-use them when installing an aftermarket exhaust. Otherwise, simply search our store for "Exhaust Gasket" = choose the one you want and we'll include it along with your order.

  • Do these fit 2002 Honda shadow spirit.

    By: Kino

    Yes, the drag pipes will fit both, the 750cc and 1100cc variants of the 2002 Shadow Spirit. Simply select you machine from the drop down menu that's to the right of the photo and you'll get the pipes that fit your machine.

  • Hey. I am rebuilding my Vulcan 1500 that I bought with engine problems. I don't know what rejetting is. Can you please guve me details? I never rebuilt an engine and I am finding out things as I go. I need pipes for my bike but now I am uncertain how to go about this. Thanks.

    By: Victor

    While you can probably get away with installing this Cobra exhaust by itself, to get the best possible throttle response and engine performance, it's always best to install a jet kit. Basically, any time you change the way air moves into or out of the engine, you'll want to adjust the air fuel ratio accordingly to maximize any performance gains available from the new exhaust.

    You can find the right jet kit to go with this exhaust and your motorcycle by searching our store for "Cobra Carburetor Jet Kit"

    YouTube has a plethora of information regarding carburetors and jetting, I would suggest looking over some videos of how to rejet the carb on your Vulcan 1500. It's not terribly difficult to do, but does require a fair level of mechanical skill. We do have service manuals available that explain a great deal of tasks, from basic to advanced, for keeping your bike up and running. You can find those manuals by searching our store for "Clymer Shop Repair Manual"

  • Do i need to re jet or use a power commander on a fuel injector bike Boulevard C50T?

    By: Guest

    You could probably install this exhaust without a Power Commander and the bike would run, but to get the best possible power output and throttle response, it's always best to adjust fueling accordingly. Basically, any time you change the way fuel or air gets into or out of the engine, you'll want to tune the bike to match. This way, there will be no stumbling at certain throttle position/speed combinations.

  • I have a 1999 Honda Shadow Spirit and have a set of Longshots fitted to my bike. I like them, but they're a little too loud and have very little back pressure. Do you carry an exhaust that I could put on that are not too loud and have good back pressure?

    By: Bill

    As a general rule, drag style pipes are probably the loudest pipes you can find as they're of a narrow diameter and have the standard baffles in them. In the case of the VT1100C Shadow Spirit exhaust, Cobra does not produce a set of Drag Pipes to fit that bike. In your case, the best pipes for your needs would be a Vance & HInes Classic II Exhaust System. They're baffled and have a rather mellow sound when compared to straight drag pipes, but without too harsh of a bark.

    By: Staff

  • Does it come with mounting hardware for the pipes?

    Would these pipes come with the bracket to mount the pipes to my frame or is that a separate purchase?

    By: Rich

    If the stock exhaust is what you have installed on your machine, then you'll have everything you need to get the Drag Pipes put on your bike. All required mounting hardware and brackets are included with Cobra's exhausts to make installation as easy as possible. Keep in mind, however, you may need to re-use some of your bike's OEM bolts, spacers and/or washers that attached the stock exhaust system to your bike for fitting the exhaust. Also, there are no exhaust valve gaskets included, but if the original items are in good shape, you can certainly re-use them for the new pipes.

    By: Staff

  • Would this sound better than the classic slash cuts? Does it compromise performance?

    By: dbp

    That's hard to say since sound is a rather subjective subject. It really depends on what kind of exhaust tone you're looking for. If you want something that's loud and sharp - then yes, Cobra's Drag Pipes are the way to go. If you really wanted to go all-out, simple pull the removable baffles which are included with each exhaust and you'll probably wake the dead.

    As far as performance goes - it really depends on what state of tune your bike happens to be in. If it's carbureted, you'll certainly want to adjust jetting in order to get the best possible engine performance and throttle response. Cobra makes the perfect jet kit to go with any of their exhausts. If your bike happens to be fuel injected, then you couldn't possibly go wrong with an Fi2000 PowrPro. With that tuner, it's just a matter of plugging it in and it'll figure out how to best fuel your bike, 80 times per second for maximum performance.

  • these are not the slip ons correct?

    By: hakel63

    Yes, Cobra Drag Pipes are not slip-on mufflers. They are full exhaust systems that replace the entire OEM exhaust.

    By: Staff

  • I have a Suzuki M50, will Cobra give me more sound?

    By: Sling

    YES! All of Cobra's full exhaust systems provide more sound than the stock exhaust they're designed to replace. You will notice the engine will be significantly louder upon the installation of these Drag Pipes.

    By: Staff

  • are these pipes going to be loud even though they have baffles

    By: Guest

    If you want loud Cobra exhaust pipes, you're looking at the correct exhaust system! As a general rule, Drag Pipes are some of the loudest exhausts you can buy for your motorcycle. This is due to the fact that they have minimal baffling and don't have a larger muffler area common on other exhausts. For these reasons, Cobra Drag Pipes tend to be particularly loud and especially if you remove the baffles.

    By: Staff

  • Dimensions?

    I'm trying to calculate how much exhaust wrap I need to wrap these pipes, will 50' worth of 2" exhaust wrap be sufficient? I'm looking at an online calculator to figure it out.

    By: Dylan

    To do it right, you'll need about 100 feet of 2" wide Drag Specialties Exhaust Wrap Kit. With that, you'll have plenty of wrap to get it all done.

  • What all do I need if I want to replace my stock pipes with something similar to these? I was told that I needed to change my carburetor and other things to do with my fuel system.

    By: Michael

    Just about every exhaust we sell comes with all the required mounting hardware, although you may need to re-use some of the stock exhaust brackets and bolts in order to complete the installation. There are no fuel tuning components included with any exhausts from our suppliers. With regarding to changing your carburetor, we highly recommend a Cobra Jet Kit to go along with any Cobra exhaust that we sell, be it a slip-on or a complete exhaust system.

    Since those kits are developed specifically to work with Cobra pipes, they come with everything you need to get your bike running with the best possible throttle response and engine power output. The easy-to-follow instructions do an excellent job of explaining how to get the most out of the kit, from setting up a baseline to fine-tuning your carburetor to your specific machine's needs.

  • When you say the baffles are removeable, what exactly does this mean? Because most baffles are welded in. Does this have screws or something to remove to get them out?

    By: Mike

    In the case of Cobra's Drag Pipes, each baffle is secured with a set screw. Usually, the screw is located on the inner-facing side of the tailpipe where it isn't visible from most viewing angles. The baffles themselves have a nut welded in place which makes removing or installing them a quick, simple affair.

    By: Staff

  • When purchasing these does that include the set of both pipes or are these sold per pipe?

    By: Guest

    Cobra Drag Pipes full exhaust systems are sold in pairs. You will receive two complete sets of pipes, from the cylinder heads all the way to the Cobra exhaust tips with your purchase.
