Can someone with the MBRP exhaust please place some photos in their profile or stick it on a website or email them to me. I would like to purchase this pipe but I am unsure how it mounts, where it exits the bike, and what it looks like. From what I can gather it exits the rear somehow and is loud. I am wondering how it exits the rear when the stock exhaust goes across the back of the bike and is angled out the rear. Does the MBRP do the same "angle" thing or does it exit the left side of the bike (sitting on it left)? Some photos would REALLY help me out with this purchase...thanks!

The pipe follows the same path that the stock exhaust uses. It exits out the right side of the rear. All you see is the chrome pipe angling out the back like the stock exhaust does. The exhaust is a little louder than the stock, it sounds more like a motorcycle, but it is not real loud.

I reused the stock heat shield with the new pipe since it runs hotter. The removal and installation of the pipe took about two hours, I was slow making sure I laid eveything out in a manner I would remember how to reinstall it. I will try to get a couple of picks this weekend and put in my profile.

I also installed the Dyno-Jet kit, K&N Air filter, and a outerwears prefilter. It has a LOT more power on the low end than before. I can hit 40 a lot faster and it will do a wheelie with no extra effort.

James what you currently have is excatly what I am wanting to do!! I am going to try and get the HL powerkit that comes with the pipe, K&N AirFilter, Outerwears Prefilter, and JetKit. Your comment on the "It has LOT more power on the low end than before" is very nice to hear. Also, did those mods change your top end speed at all? What setup do you have with the a/f screw and main jet size?

Jason, I haven't maxed out to test the top end yet. From what I have read, the max speed will drop by a couple of miles per hour.

I live at about 2200' feet above sea level. I used the 148 Jet, turned the mixture screw out exactly three turns, put the clip on the second slot of the needle, and left the fat spacer out of the carburator. I also removed the slack from the throttle cable.

I tried several different combinations, such as the 146 Jet, adjusted the mixture screw up to a half turn in each direction, and with\without the fat spacer in the carburator. I think each machine will respond differently to each adjustment.

Jason, it's really not a large as your think. The HMF is probably about the same size, it just isn't as long and doesn't run straight out the rear end like the MBRP does. But it's roughly 2 1/2" in diameter.

JamesO, a guy I talked to said the MBRP took his top speed from 61 to 64, which was hitting the rev limiter for him at 64.

I saw and heard on in person, thanks 03rincon, and it sounds REALLY nice!! its not as loud as people make it out to be...it is more deep than loud. It reminds me of a truck with duelled out pipes, ya know that deep rumble...

I would like to have one, but from my understanding its a bear to install the thing. You have to disasemble the entire back part of the bike..
