Neither one of them could tell me if the bags would fit over these pipes. I'm a little disappointed that D&D couldn;t even tell me if there was a difference in profile with their pipes, especially since I bought them.
Has anyone installed both? They look like they should work but it is an expensive risk to order these only to run into fitment problems.
Thanks in advance.
Hey loanstar I saw you posted this on all the other forums and I have not paid attention to whether you got a answer or not. I do not know but am wondering why you are choosing the DD slip ons or any other slip ons period. Unless you not looking to add Horse power. My advice to you would be to plerge a little more and buy a good power adder for a pipe. You can get more out of your stocker and then if you ever want to add real horse power to the bike you will have already purchased a good pipe ahead of time. The OEM header is verry restricting. you can buy a pipe that will produce 160 to 165 hp . I know of two but believe only one will fit with the beetle bags.
I just seen a Rocket Touring produce 165 hp and 165 ftlbs. of torque wit this pipe. With tune boy for tuning. I am sure with a little more tweaking you could get even closer to 170 hp.
Just a thought that you might consider
hope tis helps
