Add another $155 for super ceramic coating and you have $554 in a pipe that I think looks better than a ThunderHeader and has the dyno chart to show it performs better.

Really not a fan of that hole shot one honestly. Looks kind of like a baseball bat. To each their own. Super stoked on the pipe when it get's here. Looks super stealth mode. It will be a great convo piece in my opinion too. Especially when so many people in my area rock Thunderheaders. Will hopefully get it in the mail and installed later this week or early next week to show it off. Not sure if I have a camera that will capture the sound of it well. I have heard sound clips of it with a decent camera, and it truly does sound a little more burly than a TH.

Sorry Gents. Been busy. My focus went to guns the past month with the whole BS scare thing going on. Pays to know how to build an AR in a couple hours time... haha

I have the exhaust on for the most part, but the guy who built it built it on an 89 FXR and the mount needed to be a little bit different He took car of me and Now I just have to put the bracket on and find where I put those little springs. Bike is still not buttoned up as you can see. But here is a quick glance of it mounted for the most part.







Let me know what you think? I will work on getting it buttoned up here soon and try to get some sound clips and maybe some dyno runs with it too.

Thank you!

Throttle Jockey, how the hell did you mount the front 1/4 fairing on your bike? I bought the Arlen Ness relocation bracket and it is a complete POS. I can;'t figure out how it works for one, secondly, it doesn't look like it will put it up far enough or far enough forward to fit in the fairing's hole correctly even if I could get it to mount to the brow correctly, too.

Don't worry about my work space in environment. It's my grandfather's old ass garage my folks let go. I live in an apartment and we're doing a lot to 3 different bikes. After I button this bike up were totally re-doing the garage to accommodate gun builds and bike builds. haha

I had to build a custom mount for mine. When I get in from work I'll get some pics for you.
