So trying to decide on which pipes to install on my jackpot, Ive narrowed down all my choice to a select few. rpw slash, rpw big slash, the hacker rippers, hacker jokers or the x-bow vic pipes. I know the rpw are a popular choice around here, has anyone tryed the rpw and hackers?

Not a fan of the Hacker company, it's product, and customer service both have a bad rep; for a good reason
why is that?

I have the Big Slash, and LOVE it ! Best sounding pipe I have ever owned. I had two Harleys with several sets of pipes, including a Thunderheader which until I bought this RPW Big slash was my favorite, and none of them sounded as good as this pipe. And, trust me, I am picky about the way a V twin sounds.

on the big slash do they have to cut the part of the frame like on the rpw slash??

I have the slash and am very happy with them. Don't let the frame cut scare you, it is very easy with a dremmel tool or similar cut off tool. If you have any questions about this exhaust I am happy to help.

I have a set of Hacker Zoomies on my Highball that I've had for about a month or so and I absolutely love them. Sound mean and look great. As far as the product quality I don't have any issues there, and cost couldn't be beat. I will agree on the customer service aspect they could use some work. My biggest complaint about them was that they told me 3-5 weeks to receive it and for me it was more like 7-8. Honestly it wouldn't have even been that big of an issue about the wait if they would of been upfront about the actual expectation and timing. I called twice throughout the wait time and I was told should be shipping this week or next and always felt like I never was really getting an honest answer. Almost as if they were worried I was going to cancel my order because it was a taking longer then anticipated. Other then that I thought they were helpful in answering any questions I had when I was tuning the bike and installing the pipes.

I had an old sportster head bolt cap and it fit snugly in the cut frame hole and looks factory. I am running some sort of drag pikes and love the sound, 2 inch ID.

I just had my rpw big slash installed today at a vic dealer! I went there to check them out and they look and sound sick!!! They sound like a 60s muscle car!!! I couldnt bring bike home ,i didnt have a ride up to the dealer but i will get it tommorrow!! If you want i will be posting pic on those pipes tommorrow check them out!! I went with the loydz tuner and the loydz IAV valve they sound sick!! cost$275 for tuner and $75 for valve not cheap but much better than a reflash!! I was told the reflash was a huge waste of $$$!!!!!

I have the hacker rippers and love the product. Customer service was crap. Expect 6-8 weeks to receive them.

RPW sound great but I like the sound of the rippers more.

A buddy of mine has the xbow and de-baffled them, and they sound nice but again the rippers sound better IMO.

I am going to dyno the bike and see what gains they provide to the 106 engine and post them up when I get a chance. They are loud pipes though. So if that's not your cup of tea then order the quite inserts. It's all personal preference and with hacker - the length of time you want to wait..

Hope this helps!cheerscheers
