I have them on my 2006 Vegas and I love them. They sound great, look great, and they are loud when you want them to be but are not too loud. Mine have some header wrap on them but I am going to re-wrap them with black header wrap and probably wrap them a little farther down.

Have you seen them or heard them? I have some video from the guy I bought the bike from but I am going to make a new video cause the quality of his was not very good.

I had a set on the Jackpot. LOUD pipes at least my Clubs were with the Big City Thunder Baffles in them. Here is a sound clip.

Diamond,

Did your bike have the idle turned down in that video? I love mine but wish the idle was lower. I have been told they wont idle like a carburated bike. Does it hurt to run low idle on fuel injection? How would I idle it down if not?

Thanks, Nathan

Actually the bike had been up on the lift for a few days having other stuff done and the shop was extremely cold.

That was a cold start with no increase on the fast idle.

You do NOT want to drop your RPM's below 1000 rpm's.

Oh, okay. Now I know for sure that not to drop my idle. I was always kind of leary of lowering the idle anyways. The way I always thought about it was if you have a low idle then you also have low oil pressure.

Thanks, Nathan
