Danmoto Exhaust: Anyone who bought them still happy?
Well finding out my baffles were shot in my screamin eagle exhaust and how much rust is all over the pipes when taking it all apart i was kinda glad it had chrome shields over it all.. but after taking the busted baffles out and taking it for a ride today.. i am extremely unhappy with the sound.. sounds just terrible..
So i ordered a set of Danmoto Highwayman 2 in 1 stainless, seen that they had a stainless set $249 on ebay while the black was $299... i decided to try the stainless out on the bike and trash this rusty SE exhaust... hope the purchase isn't a pile of junk... had $17 in ebay bucks about to expire.. so used them up to bring the price down to nearly $230 bucks...
They are a great exhaust for the money. Just remember and keep that in mind when you have to work it over a little bit to get it to fit perfect. I had one and fitted it all up but then scored another exhaust I wanted more for super cheap so I never ran it.
thanks guys, i just wanna ride.. im not looking to make the bike a beauty queen that i have to spend an hour every weekend cleaning.. i just want it to sound better than it does now lol.. the looks of it isnt perfectly fitting to the vrod.. but the note in the videos i heard was pretty decent..
Man sounds way louder. Plus $200 more than danmoto.
My only concern with the Danmoto is the finish holding up. Wonder if it would make sense to do any kind of extra/better coating before installing to help?
Since the Danmoto is so short and such a small amount of work to put on and take off.. if it starts to discolor ill take it off and paint it with exhaust paint or wrap it with heat wrap tape... It seems from the few post i found the only ones with discoloration issues is the black version turning grey/white.... All the stainless ones just seem to turn colorful...
I just put on the Bassani Road rage 2. I had both them and the heat shield ceramic coated mainly for heat management, but I expect they should last longer. I was also told that it will improve performance.
