if anyone ca give me information on how to get this done. now i know the h pipe is a part that was ment for this bike to have. and i know jeting a tweeking of carbs would be needed. but if anyone could do like a in depth exsplination would be awsome. and i dont want to spend 100 bucks on harley pipes.

Al,



The bike looks good and I do like the paint job, but I don't like loud pipes ... they don't save lives. Please don't consider it a slam, but an proven opinion.



One thing ... the angle of the engine ... I am a little concerned that you might have the oil too deep in the back of the engine and it might starve for oil at higher RPMs as the oil pump is near the front of the engine.



Have you measured how much oil it takes to fill it to the full line compared to an engine that is level?

Hi Alan,



I think it's pretty easy. Buy a second set of headers and weld the curved parts to the existing pipes that you have. A little cutting, some fitting, and you get turned down pipes.



I'll side with others, you would get a ticket anywhere east of the Mississippi with pipes like that. Try getting an extra set of 650 pipes and doing it on a spare.



And don't park on grass. It will backfire and flame like hell, even with a rejet.

I keep getting lost every time I read it. Probably because people think they are talking to me but couldn't you just get away with a downward pointing exhaust tip of the right size. And then just rejet.



You may be able to get those slip in mufflers to go into the tip before you put them on the header.



Or cut something like this down and slip it on.
