But when I let my wrist do the talking - people tend to snap their heads in my direction.
This is how I like my pipes... I can sneak when I need to... and I can get noticed when I need to be noticed.
It's amazing how different some of these comments are. I just put mine on yesterday and went for a ride with them on. Now hearing problems run in the family so I wear earplugs almost all the time I ride and since I'm such a woos without a windshield, I wear a full face helmet to keep the bugs off my face. I loved the sound, not to loud but if I want to make noise, just hit the throttle. On the way home, I went without earplugs..... wind noise in the helmet and the pipes had my ears ringing when I got home.... Not overly loud but for my ears, they were. The thing I like most and everyone down the shop agreed, those pipes make the bike. The chrome is excellent and the flow of the pipes just goes with the bike. Cobra has come a long way from earlier pipes..... now, will they do anything about the scraping issue.... I was tentative on the purchase but the shop had them and I had the money...... end of story.Rokr said:Well, I just put mine on tonight...now I'm wondering if I should pull the baffles out. Sounds nice as is, but I think I'd like them a bit louder...hate to take them off to do it though. Can you remove the baffles once they pipes are already on?
Yes, it is very easy. The hardest thing with them on the bike is undoing the screws. Once you have these out, take a small allen wrench and some vice grips. Put the small end of the allen in the hole inside the pipe where the screw was, the vice grips on the other end and pull, mine came right out. I can't tell you how to plug those screw holes cuz I haven't done it yet. I guess I could put screws in there and try and get nuts on the inside but not sure.Rokr said:Can you remove the baffles once they pipes are already on?
Have you scraped them yet?NHRAIDER said:Cobra has come a long way from earlier pipes..... now, will they do anything about the scraping issue.... I was tentative on the purchase but the shop had them and I had the money...... end of story.
