Freedom Performance Exhaust

Anybody have the sharp curve radius pipes from Freedom performance? I just bought a set but was still curious if anybody had them..they are the "ground pounder" style, IMO they're some of the best looking pipes available for the 900. I just received them today but am currently fighting a pretty high fever and it may be a couple of days before they're installed...one thing i can say is that they look incredible in the box lol. so while im trying to get better the next best thing is talk about them on the internet...

A have a set of these that arrived last Saturday. I hope to install them this weekend. I agree that they look really good and they have to be an improvement in sound over stock.

thats why i like them so much, they do look like a shorter version of swepts. actually jug huggers and swepts were some of the ones i was strongly considering but then i came across these. i like the more curved look yet i didnt like how the swepts were so long

That bike in the video is mine. This exhaust is really nice. I went on my first ride with them last weekend and I love them. They were easy to install too. I put em on by myself in about 45 minutes. What finish did you get?

i got the chrome finish. did you just upgrade from stock? are they pretty loud? as soon as i can get rid of this cold/flu/virus, whatever the hell it is, the first thing i plan on doing is putting these pipes on

yeah, I was running stock exhaust before, and these are pretty loud, but a good loud, to me anyways. I did break down and order the rear scoot works pulley because of the annoying high rpms at highway speeds (never really noticed with stock exhaust), but that's mainly because I ride a lot of open roads at 55 and up. I'll report on that when I get it and install it.

I got the chrome finish also. I'm estimating by your 45 minute install time that it should take me no more than 5 or 6 hours to put them on.
