Well, I finally got the SE Dbbl barrels off and the Rineharts on. The install is basically pretty easy, but the pipes are hand-built, so they require a little "massaging" to get everything to line up. Even after adjusting and re-adjusting the rear pipe a hundred times, the inside of the pipe still rubs (just barely) on the swingarm pivot bolt cover. I was a little frustrated by the install, until I fired up my bike. HOLY SHEET! I didn't know exactly what to expect, but the sound is killer! Maybe a little on the loud side, but I've never heard a V Rod that sounded like this. It's a very deep, throaty burble and sounds much better than the SE's. In fact, baddass comes to mind. I didn't think I really wanted a pipe that was this loud, but it sounds so good it makes me grin like a ninny every time I twist that throttle. I also took the snorkel off of the air box and installed the EFI Race Tuner kit. I'm not sure, but I'm told that I'll really feel a power difference once I can get it dialed in on a dyno. Unfortunately my local shop shares their dyno with a couple of other shops, so it'll be a week or two before I can make that happen. I need to get a video camera that I can take Mpeg's with so I can share the sound with you guys.

Sounds awesome. Please post pics and dyno results when you get 'em. Im very interested in exhaust mods, but wary of the HP results of aftermarket pipes.

I'm all over this. I'm going to try to get an mpeg loaded this weekend. I've never done that before, but I'm sure Max will help me out if I need it.
