Bonza bike mate. I have a similar set up and was looking at your pipes. how do you find changing the oil i.e is it much of a hassle to remove the exhausts? do you plan on cutting of the rear frame triangle that use to hold the pillion pegs?

Very nice - nothing to be unhappy with there! Well except maybe the low clearance on those pipes - just speaking from experience - mine drag and hang up all the time. But they sure do look cool!

Thanks for the input.
I find the pipes look better than anything else by far!
They are totally unpracticle and antisocial
I love them.
I am going to order a D&D 2 into 1 instead.
The aussie police are jumping all over the Motorcycle clubs in this country and its not worth the headache being harrassed about loud pipes, and they are #ucking loud

Same black finish and should give comparable performance.
Anyone whos used the 2 into 1?
Input appreciated.

cheers
