Just curious, what was your gas mileage after the install? If I'd ever change pipes, of all the ones I've heard, those sounded the best, IMO.mr. kurt said:I think most people can get away with just installing pipes without rejetting. I put the 2.5 straights on last year and had no problems. You just have to make sure you buy some new exhaust crush gaskets for the install. When you take off the stock pipes there will be old metal gaskets that you will have to get out and replace.
Just to let you know though, I just installed the extremrevolution air box and rejetted it yesterday. It made the exhaust sound 100 times better. No more lean sounding exhaust note.
Could you guys with the HK 2.5's also give me this measurement? I would really appreciate it.Not the usual exhaust question!
I currently have installed on my bike (1300C), a set of HK slip ons, which I love.
What I need are some measurements from other riders who have either the Sideburners, the K2's or any other system.
My situation is this: I need to lower the passenger pegs for the comfort of my bride. I bought a set of Kury offset mounts, only to find out that I couldn't use them since the top pipe is in the way. The mount would actually lower the pegs/floorboards to approx the bottom of the top pipe, which is where I would like them.
From looking at pictures of the Sideburners and the K2's, it would appear that they do sit lower than stock. I don't want to buy them and then find out they still won't work.
If any other riders have these pipes (or any other) I would really appreciate a measurement down from the rear footrest mount position, to the highest point of the pipes (that would interfere with the pegs/floorboards).
I would also appreciate any feedback from riders who have heard the HK slip ons and the K2's or the Sideburners, the difference in sound / volume.
If I cant solve this problem, I may have to look at a touring bike, either a Goldwing or an Ultra Classic. I really don't want to lose my X, so please help!
i believe the difference is that the strippers have a removable baffle. the baffle in the other pipe is welded in. i bought my pipes for $370 from honda line.silvsteve said:
Up until a few months ago HDL had them for around 380.00fev1969 said:Heck clasic X, you stole them, HDL have the listed now for $443.22, just make sure they have them in stock. Extreme Revolution has them for 438.95 I'm sure if you call HDL they will meet that price.
