I’ve had these pipes for awhile now and they are still my favorite mod I’ve done. They are on my Street Cup, which has shorter silencers than the Twin to start with. The drag pipes gave my bike so much more character, with a sound that is not really much louder, but reminds me of that pleasant rumble of a nice ‘60s muscle car. When you really give it the beans it makes you feel like you are piloting an old British Spitfire, with that menacing, raspy scream that is only a Brit twin. Two of my neighbors have bikes, one an Indian and one a Thruxton R. They both say that my bike is the best sounding one of the three! They are a snap to install if you can do any basic maintenance, and look the business. As far as some saying they didn’t get any installation hardware, as I remember I had no issues there. Oh, and I was surprised as a bonus to drop some weight off the bike, as the short cans on the Cup weigh in at around 10lbs. Another bonus is the minimal design of these pipes gives you easier access for doing routine chain maintenance.
As a summary, they sound great, look great, easy to install, make you more manly, lower the interest rate on your mortgage, make you more appealing to your partner, impress your boss, make you the life of any party, and increase the chances of winning the lottery. Ok, I may have exaggerated a bit, but just get them, ok?
