I haven't really had any hand burning issues, however, I do pay attention and make sure of where I put my hand when turning the key. It's actually farther away from the left pipe than the picture makes it appear to be. I don't have any closer pics of the left side with me, but, i'll post some when I get home Tuesday.

Do they come in black?
I don't like the shiny.

Thanks bro, I really love this idea, and for the money, I would just like to see as much of it as posible before buying new pipes.

Send a message via AIM to floptop 454
Are they quiet enough to pass the police test if they get serious about enforcement? Somebody needs to make a sound bite. I'de like some straight tips. I hope I don't like the sound, be cheaper that way. Who needs some sideburners?

Nope haven't hit them yet. FYI with the bike standing straight up, it is 5 1/2" to the bottom of the Cadillac tip and 8" to the bottom of the muffler. I have a set of slash cut tips also and they are the same diameter as the muffler. Hope this helps. Don't have any way to make a sound clip, but, they sound awesome. I took the baffles out one day and they sound even better, but, put them back in because they are not double wall pipes and I didn't EVEN want to take a chance of blueing a set of $$$$$ pipes.

Pipes don't scrape, floorboards do. You won't be sorry if you choose doolies.


Gone the Harley way....

Thanks bro, yep it all helps. I looked closer at the pics, and I think they seem low to me, just because im not used to the pipes being so long, as in under the fender. I looke at my V&H pipes, and my bottom pipe seems very close to the same, cant check it this second, its at the dealer getting the valves adjusted, I will look tomorrow night. They really make the bike look alot more semetrical, and very good.

Mountain Flier, your pipes have different tips in the pics. Very cool, I would love to have some different tips to pick from, on the Retro, the V&H dont have that. Thanks to you all for this post and the pics.
