I have the RPW Big Slash, and I think it is hands down the best sounding pipe I have ever owned. I went with the black, and at first look, the ceramic was great. After installing and going over them closely. The coating is just okay. From a distance it is great. If you really look close, you can see some minor imperfections. You'll have to buy a separate down load from the dealer or get a tuner. I went with the download card RPW suggested in the instructions , and it runs perfectly.

I have the slash on my highball. They are a great sounding pipe with a nice deep sound at idle and a roar when you grab the throttle. I ordered directly from R.P.W. I also went with the Lloyd's fuel tuner and that unit is very easy to use and adjust.

My advice is give RPW a call, they are very nice and helpful. Also, if you get the Lloyd's tuner, he is very knowledgable and can help with that part.

One other thing, if you install the exhaust and fire it up without the tuner it is extremely loud. I panicked when I heard the sound but after tuner they are great!

torch is the tuner the samething as a flash card? is the flashcard going to help if the pipes are to loud? or do you need both?

No, you could do either but the nice thing about a fuel tuner is you can make further adjustments should you ever decide to make additional mods like air intakes for example. As for my comment earlier about how loud they were, I assume this was because the bike was way to lean after changing pipes. Tuned right these pipes sound great as long as quiet is not what you are going for.

Yes, RPW Slash, that's why I posted it in this thread about the RPW slash exhaust... Baffles are as delivered (unmodified).



Here's an old video of them from the track...

Call R.P.W. directly, don't no the number off hand just google the company. Tell them what you want as far as black and chrome, they will get ya what you need. I also bought the Lloyd's tuner from them. You can do the install yourself, it is as easy as following directions and using basic tools...no need for a dealer if you go this route.
