i just put the bigshot longs on my heritage and it wasnt bad at all. you will probably need someone to hold the tailpipes up while you line it up with the the head bolts. takes a little finess but they fit like a glove. the bigshot longs come really as one piece so you have to fit it into there all together. i dont know about the regular bigshots. i love mine! the sound is terrific and the bike runs wonderfully. is your bike carberuated? if so you probably need to go up a size on the main jet. you can change it with the carb in place if it is setup like my heritage. good luck! you can do it!

all i needed was a 1/4" ratchet with a universal to get at the head bolt nuts. they are a little tricky to get at but not bad at all. you need to re-use the stock flange and snap ring off each pipe and put it on the new ones. to remove the rings you just need a large flat blade screwdriver to pry them off. then just your basic sockets in 3/8" if it is like my heritage you have to remove the stock bracket, then the new pipes bolt up where the stock bracket was removed. you would probably need someone to hold the rear of the pipes up while you line up the headers to the head bolts. then just bolt er up. i would suggest loctiting everything. not bad at all. must be on some bikes, and i dont know which ones that there are brackets held in place by the rear pivot bolt. in that case you need to hoist the bike up and take the pivot bolt out to remove the stock brackets but my bike it was not needed. if your bike has the long bar that the mufflers bolt to then i would say it is like mine. good luck!!
