I like the workshop stand you are using.

What is the brand and model and is it very, very stable?

I checked out the exhaust sticky and a bunch of the videos. Very cool. I think I like the Norman Hyde exhaust but am open to ideas. Plus, money is an object so best bang for my buck is key. Also, I'm not skilled enough to do the upgrades myself so any idea how much all this will set me back?

I also have the EPCO's from stainlessride, except i got mine from ebay and they were labeled as "cosmetic defect" ... If the defect wasn't described, i would've never noticed.

They were about half the price of the ones on the normal site.

I picked that up at Harbor Freight. The tools and parts from harbor freight are hit or miss. For instance my buddy has the same one but his bottle jack leaks. For $69 I thought it was worth a shot. With a couple upgrades it should last. Yeah the bike is very stable on it.

I ride a carbureted 2007 T100 and debated exhaust silencers for a long time. TOR's went on within weeks of getting the bike and remained on until last winter but I was never satisifed with the sound. I read dozens of posts on this site and others, including many Youtube videos. Because I use saddlebags, I need low silencers like TOR's (and the originals), so all upswept pipes were eliminated. After many months of online comparing, I picked British Customs Sleepers - stainless steel and I guess mid-price range. They rumble at idle and are quiet enough to hear the person next to you speak but during accelleration, they sound like they mean business. And, they look right on the bike. The chamber is narrower and shorter than TOR's but have a much wider opening. Not much inside - pretty much a straight pipe lined with steel wool. Two seasons ago I put on an airbox elimination kit. It came with 140 jets so they are fine. BC Sleepers look good, sound good plus I think they make an additional horspower or two more than the TOR's.
