Default 85 Virago pipes

I've been looking everywhere to the best of my ability to find a set of pipes for an 85 virago 700, that sound good. The only ones I can find are V&H classic 2's which I can't find any more info on.

Any ideas?

I think your options are going to be pretty limited, your best bet would be the V&H

I put some neat Jardine pipes on my '82 750 Virago, don't they make 'em anymore? Straight pipes with a baloney tip. Got rid of those goofy looking trumpet mufflers.

Could it even be possible to give that thing less travel in the rear than it already has?

Yes, bolt some struts on the back. Get rid of that worrysome dampening fade...
