    The big thing is they can be quiet baffled whereas my pipes can't....apparently

    my pipe has a baffle in it now and near gives me tinnitus at the end of the day it's that fuckin loud.

    you will notice a big drop in low down power with those pipes, Harley engines all the power is made or broken with the pipe basically.

    You can have a 100hp capable engine, put the wrong pipe on it and it will make 75hp sort of thing.

    They do make shit to fix the reversion though.

    the pipes you had on there were not exactly the pinnacle of performance either. So not a waste but fuck me $900 is a lot.
    Should have told me you were after a set. Put the feelers out.

    Mine is going to end up basically a yellow version of this

    Short shots turned up today. Trying to source some "quiet baffles" for it

    Joker machine bar clamp turned up too but might wait until pink slip done before relocating speedo

    In all my years of riding bikes I've never had someone start the bike for a pinky.

    Decided to change out the seat for a black one. Going to try and mount it lower and maybe change out the springs for shock rubbers or some such

    6'0". I like them. If there is a pothole you can't avoid, you can use your legs to avoid having your ass driven through your spine

    Looks and sounds so much better. It was so quiet, I was trying to start it and it was already running

    Speedo relocation and finish mounting the seat = done

    Ha!

    I've kept the pivot at the front and the centre is now supported by compressable foam. I'll see how that goes

    I like the look of the short shots. I think the "quiet" baffles helped a bit. I'll have to see how this seat pans out....

    Hoping to get pink slip tomorrow. Have ordered a coil/ignition relocation kit from the States. Lots of Youtube talk about silicon tape, anyone had any experience with it?

    For a coil re location?
    If it's that vulcanising stuff it's for the tank lift/wire tuck but it's not nessecary.

    Keep an eye on the bolt holding the coil as I've had mine back out a few times. Red loctite that one.
