Stock pipes suck. Heavy damn things. Too long...
I have the HK 2.5" Classics.
The welded brackets are nice, except they have heat expansion issues.
MR VTX had his lower pipe crack/break.
I have rewelded a few places. A bead on the top lower pipe.
I live with it.
Welded in baffle, I had thought of removing it. Never did.
I did not like the sound, too much clanging.
I made a lollipop device and have been happy with it for years.

Mio I have the cobra speedster shorts on my 02 18C no problems or issues. Didn't need to add or change anything after install. Some may not like them but I was looking for louder than stock and are quite happy with them. Welcome to the club and enjoy the ride and stay safe.

Alright Cool! I never had a aftermarket from my previous ride but i always thought to have one and wants to have more louder and better sound Its just dont have noledge in terms of the pros /cons on motorcycle aftermarket pipes?
I just thought that it might not be safe on the engine ? But now I'm getting a better understanding!

I wanna thank you guy's again for sharing
From all you know ?

That's one of the best way to do if sellers willing or agree to go for it?
From when I first answered his for sale ad to when he agreed to the dealer inspection was 3 weeks.

I had to insist a second time. The result was he bought me a new battery and new front tire.

He also reduced the price $500. as well.:)

So…. did you buy one yet? Good time of year to do some haggling and dealing… too cold to ride in lots of places.
