Default Dual Exhaust for BW

So I've been looking at exhaust lately because I can't stand the stock exhaust. I can be pretty picky when it comes to pipes and I've got my eye on doing a true dual exhaust for my 2013 boardwalk. I'm only aware of two companies that make dual exhaust and they are Hacker and RPW. I'm not sure if the RPW pipes would work with the BW but I don't see why they wouldn't, and I already know the Hacker ones fit. My problem is which one to go with? Price difference really isn't a big deal. I'm more concerned with the difference in performance, sound, quality, installation issues, and customer service between the two companies. Can anyone help me out on this?

Hi mate, I'm in exactly the same boat as you.
I'm in QLD Aus, RPW have a dealer in melbourne i've been talking to, got a price & confirmation from RPW USA that the True Duals definately fit our 2013 Boardwalks. I'm currently waiting to hear if there is a quiet baffle option. Given the quality (generally rubbish) of the sound samples on youtube it's a bit of a risk, some seem ridiculously loud & others have a nice deep but not obnoxious tone (what i'm after, needs to be touring friendly)
It's north noting RPW installation instructions mentions cutting the chassis slightly.

Haven't had too much to do with the hacker as seems a little harder to get down here...
Once i hear about the baffles i'll probably pull the trigger, got a local dealer teamed up to do pipes & PC5 at the same time. I'm interested to hear what your thoughts are to?

Default yup

go hacker and throw on the fishtail tips, as classic as it gets. my two cents anyhow, the rpw just doesnt look quite right to me.

I did ask about the fishtails but RPW strongly recommended against it, something about the gases not flowing freely & possible performance loss.
Unfortunately i've had to waylay my plans to upgrade for the time being.

You could do fish tails without the restriction if you slightly modify them.

I like the look of fishtails on certain bikes. But I'm not quite sure how well it would go with the boardwalk. I was either thinking of slash cut with the longer end at the top or a down turn exhaust. The nice part is I can always change out the ends.

Still haven't decided yet on which exhaust. Been taking it easy with finding mods for the bike this winter because it will just make me wanna ride that much more.

I wish there were just more pictures out of the two exhaust but it's almost impossible to find pictures even with my google-fu. I think so far the most concern I have is which exhaust is closer to the fender. Whichever one, RPW or Hacker, sticks out on the sides less is probably the one I'll go with. When there is just too much space between the fender and the exhaust it just doesn't look right to me. I like em close in. But that's just my preference.

Well I ordered the RPW true duals. Chrome straight muffler with slash cut tips. Also ordered PCV and Lloyd's air box (the torque tubes were backordered and I'm impatient). Should be here soon and I'll post pictures of the final assembly. Man I'm looking forward to this...

Hi mate, glad to hear you pulled the trigger!
I'm very eager to hear what you have to say about the whole thing, this might very well set the precedent for any other Boardwalk owners out there who haven't spoken up.

I've been looking and looking over the months aswell and haven't found anything else remotely close that i like. the D&D Slip ons come close but they emailed back today and said they won't fit a boardwalk.

Looking forward to your results, if you have the chance for a video it would go a long way!

I think this may set precedent. To me, the boardwalk is the perfect body style for dual pipes. Just like the kingpin was before it. I can tell you one thing, mine will be the first boardwalk with dual exhaust on YouTube. And I can't tell you how much I searched, but I have never seen a boardwalk with these exhaust.

Maybe one of the reasons nobody else pulled the trigger is because there were no pictures to show them the end product. I know that was one of my concerns too. Almost made me go a different route.
