Awesome, I literally just placed my order 5 minutes before your comment. It's Tuesday, hoping for Friday delivery so I can work on it this weekend. I also have my first service scheduled for Thursday so this would be good timing.

*edit*
Shipped: Estimated Delivery Friday September 2

Awesome.

I wonder how much the pipe stands out width wise. You might be able to sneak the stand in between frame and pipe.
Just installed it, it's not going to matter which ones you use they aren't going to fit w/ the back section of pipe attached. I may consider removing it for the season if I decided to put it on a stand for an extended period of time (I don't have a stand, or bobbins at this time.) Removing sounds like a pain, but it is literally 2 bolts, 1 minute worth of work.

This is something future purchasers might want to consider though, if you routinely put it up.

Did you have any issue getting the header to line up w/ the exhaust ports at the motor? Mine looked a little off center after I cinched them down and I'm pretty sure it's got a leak there, waiting for them to cool to try and readjust.

Also, did you only grease the exhaust ports?

*edit* - def had a leak, bolts were not all cinched down, different beast now that I got that fixed and the sound is completely tolerable.

Mine seem to fit fine right out of the box! I can't hear or see anything leaking. I'll find out for sure in a month or so when I take them off to be coated.

Yeah, it was a couple of loose bolts, they were hard to get there and I thought they were tight but they were not. Have you got a quote on the coating yet?

No, but I know a guy that gives me a good price. He's done a couple things for me in the past for less than retail.

which is significantly shorter than the 21" Delkevic can.
