I hope this worked...

what does everyone think about the highmount carbon fiber slip on. Can't afford it yet but as soon as I can think I might do...

Just wanted some opinions. Looks/Performance/Price(479 US)?

hmmm, tough one. both look good. but i'm thinking if I get a exhaust, I'll probably stay away from the carbon now since they dont last as long and I ride in all the crappy weather....

I went through a similar dilemna. I LOVE the highmount look and the aftermarket growl that comes with a new pipe. The only thing is, slip-ons are a waste (performance wise) and full systems are pricey.

But today I took out my VISA, and bought a full Hindle system! :) I got the Titanium Oval Supersport highmount, and I look forward to installing that bad boy in a few weeks. More than I wanted to spend, but I had over $300 in my PayPal account and since they do not allow Canadians to deposit that money into a bank account, it HAS to be spent. It covered over half the cost of the exhaust, and I will just have to sell some more stuff on eBay to cover the rest! :)

Umm.. vrecksler, they do allow you to deposit money in your bank account, I do it all the time.

As far as the can goes, I don't care for the firbre look of the two bros, I'd still go with the titanium / silver look myself.

Are you sure absolutdm!!! Please explain how this is done, I only see the headings; 'Send Money', 'Request Money', 'Shop', 'Sell', 'Overview', 'Add', 'Funds', 'Withdraw', 'History', 'Profile'. I would like to know how to actually get my funds in my bank.

Oh, and I passed on the exhaust, it turns out I would have had to wait close to a month to get it so I will save the exhaust for my next winter project. :( I was looking forward to it though...

I like the looks of the polished aluminum, but I know I should be going ape-shit for carbon fibre. I was checking out the prices of slip-ons and they isn't too bad. Anyone know how often these aftermarket pipes have to be repacked? I wouldn't mind going with a Staintune to avoid the repacking thing altogether.

I haven't heard about sportbikes getting busted for pipes, but if you're running a race system, you'd better expect it. As for those stupid Harley pipes, the cops are secretly on their side. They all want to be Hog riders, and hate us because we're faster and better looking.:D
