There Can Only Be One
I like those pipes. Do you have a link?I added my led lights and I removed the Stock muffler and replaced them with turnout tips and now i have a feww points to make.
1. The tips are 1 3/4- 2 inch turn out tips bought from Advanced Auto Parts. the pipes themselves may be 1.5 inch but the stock heatshields are 2 inch. with the screws to lock em down they seem to fit perfectly. The pipes sound magnitudes louder and has a much better tone now, not to mention i like this look much better. now i just gotta test ride it
2. The LED lights tie into the turn signals and the brake lights, as well as they have 16 colors, and have several modes Flashing, Steady, Breath, and Music (aka they dance along to the beat). both me and a buddy have the same light kit, so when one bike has music running both bikes react the same. and dance along to the same song. I'll include a night time picture later tonight if i can remember to take it.
Sorry no link to the tips, however,I like those pipes. Do you have a link?
And a sound?
Thank you for the information ?Sorry no link to the tips, however,
The tips are just 2 off-the-shelf $10 chromed turn-down tips that were labeled to fit an inlet of 1 3/4 to 2 inch pipes. The stock exhaust pipe is a 1 1/2 inch pipe with a 2inch heatshield, I loosed the heatshield bolts and then I mounted these tips to the pipe with the inlet end of the tips tucked up under the factory heatshields with the turndown twisted to the side then tightened down the screws. It was just that dirt simple.
As for the sound. check out this link. This is my bike when I removed the stock muffler.
youtube, straight pipes, stock muffler removed
As these are just tips not a complete new exhaust system they didn't change the performance or sound from the straight pipe sound produced when I removed the stock mufflers. that is what you will see in the video.
I do have some popping while driving, but my fuel mileage went up slightly, maybe less than 10%. I'm exploring adding the lollipop mod in the pipe to allow for "backpressure" I've heard this will help with the popping and "straight pipe sag" which is a loss of power in the middle of the power curve. I can say the sag does happen, but while I notice it happens sometimes, it also doesn't affect my riding at all.
here is a link for one version of the lollipop mod.
I added the lollipop baffle mod. it didn't stop the popping completely, but it did tame the harsh notes of the exhaust tone while riding, tamed the popping significantly, and didn't affect the volume of the exhaust much. I recommend the lollipop mod to anyone with straight pipes, unless a aftermarket exhaust with baffles is an option.Thank you for the information ?
