Mine's an older sporty so just want to make sure they will fit. As I'm in Australia most everything has to be ordered from overseas

The Rush slipons are quite desirable.
If I did not already have a set of SE-II, I would have bought the Rush.

Hammer Performance tests a whole lot pipes.

Note the Rush gives up nothing to the top performing Patriot Defender from idle to 5600 rpm.
Above 5600 the Patriot pulls away.

Personally, if you want your bike to be "all that" above 5600 RPM, buy a rice rocket.
This is not meant to sound mean-spirited.
Sportsters are not rice rockets; they are for riders who want a Sportster.

Cycle Shack is in bankruptcy, and their slip-ons are hard to find.
IMO, the Rush are the right combination of sound and performance.
They are louder than the Screamin' Eagle (80503-07) that are 50-state street legal.

The new SE are top performers to 4,000. See the MotoUSA Shootout above.

Although I have respect for the Hammer chart, it seems to escape comment that these tests are not run with the same motor, in the same build state, so they don't actually reflect the performance curves of a stock or mild build.

It's all tested with the same bike... Read the intro at the top of the page and they state it's all tested on their "shop mule"

I went with rush because I don't / rarely run my bike past 5k so I get the performance of the patriot pipes but cheaper.

.
Actually, there are three bikes represented there and the shop mule undergoes various builds.
Look at the details of the bike build for the tests. It's posted right under the dyno chart.

I'm not saying it's not a reasonable reference but it's not as broad a reference as many people seem to think.

Ok I found a seller from the states (eBay) that has a set new that they say fit my bike. They only sell straight cut so that will have to do.
