Great, sharp looking pipes. I did the installation on my own, it wasn't easy, mostly because another pair of hands would have come in handy. The instructions are decent, but some more pictures would have been nice to accompany the written portions. You will have to use your head to figure some of it out, or use the internet lol, The bike does feel great, I did the stage 2 dynojet carb rejetting as well, so it does feel a little more responsive. Just a reminder for those of you who like your shadow, but want it to sound better, these pipes are very loud! The Harley riders will be looking at you in confusion wondering why a Honda has that kind of volume. Don't tempt the cops, because I could almost guarantee that they would not pass a decibel reading for most states. I wear earplugs when I ride now, I don't mind it, muffles the sound just right, without them, your ears will be ringing if you're not used to that kind of sound.

I have to say these pipes' made a "world" of difference in sound. People just cant believe the low rumble the pipes produce. They really turn heads when I drive by now. They just cant believe the quality and sound for a Metric Bike. Defiantly a good investment. Yes, performance wise I do recommend the jet kit for the carb's to get the full potential of the complete upgrade in power but, for now the exhaust is enough for me. I am very pleased and impressed with this purchase. Just have to save up some more money to continue to upgrade my bike.
I installed these pipes myself w/ no problem at all.The insructions were straight forward and easy to understand. It is definately reccomended you re-jet the carbs to get the most out of these pipes.
