Ground pounders are the bomb , but , at 930.00 + 400.00 for a new oil cooler , (they will not fit with your stock oil cooler) I personally find that ridiculous , unless you are independently wealthy . Bassani turnouts ? That's your choice , but the after sale customer service leaves little to be desired if you have problems . I just purchased the RPW Slash exhaust for my 13 Hammer , in black ceramic. I know what you are going through as I crushed my brain finally choosing what I think is the best exhaust for me and my wallet. Good luck .

Ground Pounders

1) The looks alone are worth it in my book.
2) They are loud
3) Bassani customer support sucks (search the site)
4) Bassani pipes are too common (made for just about every brand of motorcycles made).
5) If I wanted a cookie cutter bike with cookie cutter aftermarket parts I would of gotten another HD or Honda.

$20,000 and 3000 miles DO NOT make you a biker

Is there anyone who makes "ground pounder style" pipes that don't require an oil cooler mod?

Seems a lot of VMF folks have a grudge against Bassani. However I can understand a shitty customer service experience, I personally did not have any issues. I did not buy direct so maybe that helped, lol.

I love my turnouts. I personally think the ground pounders are AWESOME but would be too loud for my taste. All in your personal preference good sir!

I also like the Thor , I just wish it was 6" shorter and a tad bit higher .

I have never scraped with the Thor, that's about 20,000 miles of riding. My personal opinon as for as length is, its perfect. I lowered my bike 1"1/2 , its looks cool the length it is, I m like you, not fond of the longer pipes like the shotgun type exhaust.

Metric Thunder is selling the Thor for $732.00 That's a $100 cheaper than Lloyds. That's in black or chrome.

Agreed.. But I'm biased because I've thought for a while I'd love to try some RPW 2-into-1 goodness. At present though I freakin' love my RPW Slash exhaust.
