Chrome quality = very goodJadeo said:Hey guys, Im from New Zealand and was wondering if any of you guys have tried a set of Short Shots on your FXR. Just keen to know how they performed and if they were a good pipe to purchase.
Any idea how the short exhaust compares, performance and sound, to one of the exhausts with the long megaphone?What Therm said x2.
I had those Short Sh1te abortions on my FXLR when I bought it and ditched them ASAP in favor of a Bassani Road Rage which I like. It's mounting design is good and it tucks in nicely.
The stock crossover makes better power with gutted mufflers or slip-ons. Neither the Road Rage or the Thunderheader sound "like a Harley". I have both and psychotically hate the stock mongtastic pipe cracking Thunderheader exhaust mount for which I made a very solid replacement. The Road Rage works nicely with no fiddling.
If you just want to be stoopidly loud and lose power you could buy a cheap set of "goose" style drag pipes for less money. I tried a set in the 1980s and reinstalled the stock crossover with gutted (use a rod and a hydraulic press to force out the "Welch plug"-looking center baffle) stock mufflers.
