I think the slip ons look and sound better. Trying to persuade myself to splash out on the Loose Cannon - we don't have too many upgrade options in South Africa unfortunately. Importing from Revzilla etc also costs an arm and a leg.

What's the attraction with the two/two?

I don't know about you Guys and Gals, I like to breath. There is No Catalytic Converter on that setup. And you can actually Loose power on the low end (Off the line) without any restriction. I had a 93 Ford Escort GT 1.8. Stock pipe was 1 7/8". I installed a 2 1/4" exhaust system. Ran GREAT at high rpm. But suffered low torque off the line.

I think it looks more traditional "Harley"....and sounds beefier.....I just want her bike to be different......to each his own though....

Lowered torque can be remedied with gearing ratios.....I'm not planning on having her drag racing....lol....the CC on a bike doesn't cut CO levels as much as one thinks or effect the environment like the millions of cars and trucks out there....even electric cars aren't as "green" and clean as people think...they still get the power to charge their batteries from coal burning plants.....unless they're charging on an off the grid system......which 99.9% are not.....

I talked with Lee over at Firebrand today…..he said if demand is there….they can definitely look into it….can't produce them just for a couple bikes…..if they don't, there's a custom exhaust shop down the road that said they can easily make a set like the one in the video……the low end torque can be remedied either with gearing, a crossover on the pipe or a simple bend a certain way in the pipe……unless one is racing or competing, I don't think it would be that much of measurable difference……I've raced bikes in the past…yes, a simple bend can make a huge difference….but we're not racing this bike……we're making it look badass…lol

Any chance you could start a thread detailing your mods? Particularly the tank lift and the fender eliminator you used.

Your bike looks fantastic! Congrats.

For sure. That provides better visual balance to the bike than anything else I've seen.

Now if we can find an old Sportster/Dyna/crotch rocket wheel that can bolt on the front.....
