Well I finally got em done. I took a different approach than many others did. I went with a blacked out theme for my pipes. Let me know what ya think.

She looks meaner with that 2 into 1, how is the power? Can you notice a diff from the stockers, and do you have any "FI" light problems? :bigthumbsup:

Like the look. Does your leg make contact with the new set up? I find on the stock pipes my leg hits, so the heat shields are really important.

I think there is more power across the board now. As far as FI light goes that was dissabled a long time ago so I cant help ya there.
No my leg does not come into contact with the new set up, and the tape keeps things cooler.
I know its not gonna be everyones cup of tea, But I really like it. In person it kinda looks like something you would see on a drag bike.

I love the lines of these pipes, but I think they would look a lot better in chrome with some heat shields (if needed). As for power, thats just a bonus, I think these would sell just based on looks. When you did this 2-into-1 you kept the S.E.T. valve did you not? If so thats even more of a bonus.

Thanks I wanted to get away from the "chromed out" look on this. I love the way the lines flow with the bike too. I dissabled the SET valve a long time ago so no its not hooked up. I did build the pipes so that it could have worked if I left it but I removed the valve. I have another trick up my sleeve to restore any lost low end power that I'm going to try.

Looks great to me, like it has that heat and power feel when riding. Nice job. Sound clip?

Looks good. I can't help but notice the silver part on the pipe near where the tip attaches, what is that from?
That is one of the metal tie straps. I need to do something about that, but havent made up my mind yet. I will work on a sound clip as soon as the weather get better.

Thanks for the imput guys. I seem to be getting mixed emotions from people (not just on here) People either love them or hate them. Either way is fine by me because I like them alot. I'm glad to see more people are doing their own exhaust, it's exciting to see what people come up with. :bigthumbsup:
ps crazytank7 I sent you a pm
