I just picked up a 06 hammer, id like to get an aftermarket exhaust, any suggestions on what/where to get? I like the radius and also slingshot look but I just wanted to see everyone's opinion, thanks!

lol i will do my best, but i have had a couple of my less enlightened friends who are still riding sportbikes comment that my chicken strips are smaller than theirs and i have that big tire.. i keep trying to tell them just how easy it is to ride the hammer and really enjoy myself without being on the ragged edge but they are still hooked on the speed factor of the sportbikes... then they rev their bikes and i rev mine and don't hear the little whine from theirs with the roar from the hammer. lol
cheers

Having a good look at where our respective bottom pipes terminate.
Yours is above the lower belt line and my bottom pipe is well below the belt line.
Big difference...
Been thinking about trimming the pipe up higher,
but have been using the road to do it. Lol!
Last time it touched down I felt the rear skip just a little.
But the whole bottom frame rails been touching down anyway,
Same with the footpeg mounts.

And I hang off the bike a bit more too following recommendations on here about weight shift,....these sticky Pirelli Night Dragons just hang on and inspire confidence.

Monstermash exhaust much better for ground clearance for sure!

i don't feel the heat shields do much, but 304 stainless as used by most other OE's hold more heat in the pipe + never ever rust even when not cared for. i was hoping TwoBros would make their compS for the vic but mostly hardleys. anywho i can add the shields later if wanted but, the RPW black ceramic pipe looks good to me naked, i will post a pic when done.

don't hide it

when things look good why cover them up? many things don't look good but still get exposed!!!!! dropping to zero tonight thats fahrenheit by the way, nothing exposed outside for sure!

My exhaust stops above the belt, good luck with your choice, they are LOUD though.... But you need loud so people get out of your way here :sly::mad::D;)
