:agree: The shorter pipes make the bike look sexier & tougher to me. Not that long pipes don't look good either, but I wish manufacturers would at least give us the "option" of more short pipes for the 9. Cut & Weld is what we're stuck with I guess.i wish the factory would make a short one instead of us having to cut them.
Same pipes just a different canister design, so everything should be the same when it comes to modifying the pipes.It looks like the road burner velocity is the same pipe as the side burner but with a different muffler.I'm thinking about switching exhaust but i would like to shorten it also.
If you look here I measured exactly 6 7/8th inches from the back edge of the pipe and put my tape down.JD it looks like you cut it rite where the pipe straightens out.I wounder if the muffler could follow the angle of the pipes.I like the looks of the cobra tri pro but the feed back on the sound is not very good.
