Got the bubs off of ebay...had a bit of an issue...incomplete installation kit..hard as hell to follow instructions (at least to me...I'm not that mechanically inclined..:D ), couple of the bolts threads were different than what i needed.

But in the end...these Bubs are something else!!! Managed to get it done and take her for a spin and man did does she rumble now.

For those that are debating on whether or not to change to Bubs or take off the stocks, DO IT!!!! The Clayton is good if you don't want to deafen your neighbors but if you want the rumble...go for it.

Now my question...are the HK 3" pipes as loud as these BUBS? (yes, I've got a set of HK's on the way...I like the long pipe look - but the Bubs are sweeeet!)

I have a set of HK 3" BIGS and I really like teh sound. They are LOUD but they sound so good. I have a set of Sideburners on the way so I will try those and then make a choice. Love the look of the S/Bs.
The HKs are anything but tinny. Mine idles like a thumper big block and the sound can be heard blocks away. That being said they sound great but are LOUD. They are not obnoxious at all. My 3" Bigs have a great sound to them and from waht I hear the Sideburners have a even better sound to them. Now, people with the 1800s say the 1300s have a better sound to them and sound like Harleys due to the single pin cranks.I have to wait a couple more days for the S/Bs to get here but I should have them on by next weekend.
