First off, i bought them from Phat Performance and paid the $10 rush process fee, which they wouldnt refund after the pipes were 4 days from arriving to them. So it took about a week and a half to get the pipes.... But whatever. I got them.
I was in no rush to get rid of my ness pipes, but i really like the volume(lower) of them, along with the bump in low-end torque. It has a weird whooshy/whistly sound during decel and low RPM's because of the tip, but it sounds excellent on accel and cruising.
I also need to find a factory exhaust bracket, because the bracket supplied from bassani bolts to that instead of replacing it.
That is a damn fine looking exhaust system there. Does the kit include the header pipes?
You may find it quicker and easier to fab up a bracket on your own. If it is just a flat bracket it's a piece of cake to take a piece of firm cardboard like a file folder and cut one up to the size and shape you need along with the bolt holes. It gets more complicated if you need to put a couple angles in it. Any metal working shop should be able to help you with this; especially if you have already done the hard work of making a template.
In Texas, we have to display the inspection sticker on the motorcycle. Most motorcycle license plate holders have a metal bracket underneath it to display it. I have heard that you can relocate the bracket somewhere else on the bike, as long as it is visible.
From what I was told this past weekend when I got my Vegas inspected, Texas will start doing one sticker for registration and inspection, so there won't be a need for it.

i am interested in them as well, i guess its the new midlength with higher mounting you got, lots of ground clearance!! my tri-pro's are ok but heavy + if i could do without the boat anchor OE mount would be good. unless someone comes with a 304 stainless 2-1 like twobros are bring out for the other V-twin i may just get that setup. the tri-pro was installed by former owner on my preowned 13 ham!!
My road rage doesn't come close to dragging there's a lot of clearance.
