Default Update: New RoadBurner Large Radius Pipes

Just got my new RoadBurner large radius pipes on the bike. I went with the all black pipes, and man do they look great! I had read an earlier post that they fit rather poorly, and someone had to grind down the rear brake cover. I did not have that problem at all. Pipes went on nice and smooth. The right floorboard was a bit too close for my liking, so I put a few washers on the bolts to give me a little extra room.







Went for a 10 mile spin to burn them in. They sound great, loud with a great rumble to them. I got these from eBay via DirtOverstock. Great deal and greate service from them.

They are very good looking pipes. I've been waiting since July for V & H pipes but think it is a lost cause.
Did you have to move the right hand side passenger foot peg?

Nope, didn't even have to take it off.

One thing I'm having an issue with is the joint between the head pipes and the tailpipes. There is a little leak there top and bottom. Not much, but you can feel it if you put your hand near it. I've tightened the bolts as much as I can, I think now I may just need to loosen the headers and re-align the whole thing.

Other than that, it looks great and sound great! Really loving the pipes.

I'll post one tonight right after I re-adjust the pipes. I probably didn't line them up properly which is why I have the small leak between the header and the pipe!

Default As Requested, sound clip/video of the new exhaust

Sorry for all the tools on the floor, I had just finished adjusting the header connection to the tail pipes. I've just about eliminated the little leak that was there. By the time the pipes warm up, the leak is gone, so I'm going to give it another 50 miles or so to really set the pipes in, and readjust as needed.

They sound as good as they look, do you have a programmer or just the pipes?
