Just Ordered some Cobra Scalloped Slip-Ons

Can't wait for these to come it. Ordered them through the guys at Metric Thunder for a unbelievable price, best price in the US hands down!

I've heard that I may need a new set of exhaust seals however my Bike is only 4 months old with very little usage. Hopefully I won't need to replace them but I guess I'll find out when taking off the Stock one

Can't wait to wake up the neighbors on that nice quiet Sunday morning

Please keep us posted on your results...especially any decel popping or fueling issues. I've been considering the same slip-ons for my Classic as well.

The best price I've seen the Cobra Slip-Ons for the Classic in Canada is $479 plus tax (expensive, but at least no duty or brokerage thru my Canadian Source).

I didn't replace my seals, didn't need too. You should not either.

Those were the same s/ons I first installed on my Vaq back in 2011. They were a little disappointing as they didn't make much more power than my unbaffled stock mufflers and didn't make much of a sound improvement as I was looking for.
An easy fix was to remove the inner baffle and remove the cap welded onto the inner core that prevented it from being a straight thru core. THEN I got a better sound and some more ponies.
They do look nice tho, not big like other slip-ons.

Yep, I did the same thing to mine. Much better sound.

That's not what I wanted to hear RACNRAY :-). I don't have them yet so i don't know how the baffle and the cap look like that but I may go ahead with your suggestions. Expect a long distance call ;-)

It's very easy actually, that is if you do it early before the black carbon builds up in the big pipes. Just remove 4 small bolts at the end of each pipe and slip out the baffle. I used a hacksaw to cut the welds holding the end caps on. I took the baffles out soon after I installed the pipes to see how the baffles were made. They came out easy and went in easy then. A year later I wanted them louder and took the end caps off. It was hard because of the carbon build up. There's nothing to it if you do it early.
