Well its done. I installed the cobra billet tip slip ons #4227, just a slight tweek to get to fit , Cobra fuel management system #92-1965AT. very easy install. I had previously installed the K&N high flow air filter last year. All I can say is WOW . Ruby now sounds and hauls Ass Like a 1700cc bike should. She pulls like a freight train. . The bike has a nice rumble not too loud but louder than stock, the Gf says she can hear me now on her bike. She tell when I grab the loud handle. I get a slight gurgling from the exhaust and a couple of back fires a the start of the test ride, roughly 60 miles The processor is learning the bike. Will be installing new exhaust gaskets in the foreseeable future. Just for shits and giggles I did a roll on at 100k(62mph) It was up to 160k in no time in 5th pulling 5500rpm No hesitation and stretching the arms ..... Raining here today so hopefully get out for a long ride tomorrow. ( rethinking installing an Air intake) Thank you for everyones input... One Happy Camper

The bike looks great! Hows the pipes sound as far as do they over power the stereo? I was gonna order these pipes, than I was gonna go with the freedom performance pipes but decided to wait cause of the price. And now I'm working on a deal for different set of slip on pipes. I'm so confused! lol!

Great pics, now is it asking to much for a video? lol!

Well , they are cheaper in the States than here. I figured with the customs and BS duties I was no father ahead. So Far i am pleased with them. Mind you i only have put on200 odd miles.

Good lookin pipes, got the same on my bike. They seem to have gotten a little deeper rumble to them in the 3 months I've been running them. They have a good bark when you twist the throttle too

Yes they have a good bark, REALLLLLLLLLL GOOD. Any issues with backfires when decelerating or grabing a mitt full?
