Default Where'd my Sewing Machine Go???

I just finished installing my Cycle Shack Turn-Outs... wow. I know it'll mellow after about 100 miles, but they sound sweet! Deep and throaty. Covers the chatter completely.
Took me a couple hours, but that included a trip to Pep Boys for some tools. Love the look too...
The only negative is that the pipes drag early!

Cool man, I have turn outs too, but mine are Krome Werks. I'm sure they sound the same. They are perfect for me not too loud and not too quiet.

Hey, very cool. I've seen one other black Nightster around town (North Hollywood, I think I was in). Wonder if that might be you.

Just completed the 1k service, and considering options on the exhaust. Man, so many choices.

Did you do anything other than the slip-ons? A/C, remap?

Bike looks good. But from what I've read about the geometry of the front end on the N, you can't really raise the rear enough to cure the dragging. So you'll either have to focus on the "form" of the N and drive slower or drag that front pipe.

It probably is me. I go to the Gold's Gym in NoHo, so I'm zipping around there a lot.
I only did the slip-ons and took her out to make sure everything was working properly. I may have lost a bit of low-end, but no problems at decel, so there are no leaks. I'll probably get the V&H Fuel Pack first, then do the A/C.

As far as the scraping goes, I know have a good excuse for being lame in the twisties.
"Yeah dude, I'd totally race you on Angeles Crest Highway, but I don't wanna scrape my pipes."

I think yours might be a little louder than mine, but they are loud! Probably louder than the Jardine drag pipes I had on my old Honda Magna. However, the garage didn't blow to pieces when I started her up, so the neighbors probably won't riot as long as I'm cool on our street.

Cool Luddie! The slip-ons look great! I have a Fuelpak for sale if you want to come pick it up (or possibly meet somewhere). I had it on the bike for less than 70 miles, don't have the box it came in and have obviously used the zip tie and the strip of velcro that was in the box. I'll let you have it for $120, just let me know.

Nice pipes, I like the look of those.
