Thanks for a the positive comments dudes. I wouldn’t have gotten through this without the awesome help on this forum.

I appreciate the recommendation on the Bassani RR3 @carbonizedeyesockets , that’s good looking 2-1 pipe. Definitely on my list now. Thanks!

Been enjoying this social distancing shit on the bike. Almost at 1K mikes since the build. Did some upper RPM level tuning. Bike is super smooth. Interstate riding is much better with the 1200 gearing too. Hit 75-80 mph like it was nothing. Gets there quick too!

The LSR are not hate, they're mostly overrated by RB racing and expansive.
You can have similar performance with a set that cost half the price of your pipe.

I'm not familiar with any 1/2 priced 2-1.

Sounds really good to me Seajay. I wanted one for my 883, but decided against it for two reasons.

1. They didn’t offer it in stainless steel.
2. The lead time to have one made seemed to be extremely long.

I run a Bassani on my Dyna it performs well and sounds good. I run a thunderheader on the sporty not the best but I love the deep rumble. When I see a cop I keep her in the low rpm range and they don't even look twice at me . When I open her up she just roars . For me I sticking with the thunderheader on the sporty unless the patriot defender comes back into production. I had one on the Dyna for awhile but ripped it off it because the mount kept breaking and switch to the Bassani .
