No response from anyone yet but I went ahead and ordered them as I have not read anything neg. on them. I should be receiving them sometime next week and will post comments, video and pics once installed.

Good deal man, I've read around a little sounds like they have great sound...even to loud for some. Which makes me happy because I want them to be raunchy loud! I saw an older add about them rusting, but there site said they are coated with an anti corrosion or something now. STB for pics!

I did see that post about the rusting...I am hoping that is not the case w mine. I also got the ceramic coated ones so hope that also makes them better if anything. On the loudness they do seem loud but I also ordered the flow 5 baffles to quiet them down a bit. I am super excited man can wait to have them put on.

Nope. Getting them installed professionally. Don't want to risk screwing something up. :/

Mine leak because they don't fit quite right. and the rear cylinder shoots a huge flame out which has left a burnt brown spot on the swingarm. Other than they sound awesome!

with all that negative press I would see if they had a return policy!

go for a better company like tabs or vance and hines.

They only have slipon's and the competition ones are huge....Don't like them at all.

Sucks that no one spoke up b4 i placed the ord....I would have def thought twice about it. Everything arrives by Monday. I am taking the bike in for the install but will ask the shop to really check into the fit. If anything seems off they are going righ back.

I've got the Toxic V-Lux on my 09 Muscle and I couldn't be happier! I got the Steel pipes with "Titanium" ceramic finish (which is supposed to prevent rust) with gloss black heat shields. I installed them myself last fall and it took a little massaging to get the pipes to fit perfectly without any exhaust leaks. I wrapped and sealed the headers leading up to the heat shields before I installed them and it looks great. I didn't get the passenger exhaust mounts because they weren't available at the time I ordered my exhaust but I ended up just inverting the exhaust mounts on the right side to get the exhaust to fit. I also re-tapped the temp sensor mounts and plugged them because I don't need them now.
My bike is still in storage at the moment but I should get it out and take some pics and clips.
If you get off on the bad-ass factor then this is the set up you want!
