Has anybody installed the D & D 2-1 exhaust system? If you have this system, what does it sound like. Can you use the sceaming eagle chip with exhaust system.

Kit I have heard one set of these and I would assume since it is rather loud that it is much more open then a stock exhaust with less restriction so I would not plan to use a stock flash. I have also heard a couple of rumors of finish quality but this I can't confirm.

I like the supertrapps also they were my final two... Went with D&D because in my opinion the sound is deeper and sounds a bit more like a "harley" :2cents:

Topless refers to the air filter housing cover being left off.

Azslightdraw since you have them for some time now, would you post a pic now that they're broken in?
Mine are Joker's! I have some pics posted already.
If it's what they claim on the website I'm in. :rofl:

D&D is based out of Ft Worth and an associate of mine used to race for them. I'll ask him if he can still get any inside information from them.

Eh! Let me finish. I've always liked them D&D's.

If you get pre and post hp like that I swear on my own future grave. I'm in :lick: !

I'll say WTF and try. This is minor surgery and I'm not much into other embelishments for motorcycles :goof: .

JM's are polished, not chrome. After the JM's I haven't even cleaned mine so I don't know if some of the discoloration will dissapear with Mother's or whatever, if it does not then they are shit :tmbsdow: . Since I'm such a pig with motorcycles I'm not caring much for it. BUT I sure have learned a lot from HD people here. What's true for most here is also true for others I meet where I live. What I'm still certain of is that the look I really like is that of a short and open upswept design as in the JM's and the D&D's. Any problems with discoloration with the D&D setup? Rust?

Vinny,
No offense to Okie, but those numbers are so out of line, I just don't trust them. Meaning I think the dyno is way off on it's calibration.

Cool! Vacation.
Of course I'm interested in the pics.
Mine turned yellow after the first dyno runs. It was blue to about 3 inches out.
I just want to know if there's any discoloration, how severe, and do you consider it ugly. Wanna see the dyno sheets of course also, we kid about the numbers cause it is highly unlikely any pipe setup will get you 120hp out of the box on an otherwise stock machine. The other alternatives seem ugly in comparison with the D&D at least for me. If the hp is there and I get to believe mine are just a plain mistake I'll switch to D&D unless ST does something more to my liking. I'll probably just keep my JM setup. I'm just trying to be open minded. Really like the Joker's but since objectivity is important I'll critizise my own decisions until my very end and will very much appreciate any kind of feedback.
