This pipe is one of the best purchases I've ever made for my bike. My stock head pipe was cracked and my muffler had been repacked too many times, so I decided to go all new. This pipe was packaged very nicely, and comes will all the hardware needed except for a new exhaust gasket. The pipe fit on the bike perfectly, nothing had to be modified except for a small spot on the number panel, but the instructions tell you what to do. It sounds great, I thought about purchasing the quiet insert, but this pipe is quieter than my stock one was. It gave the bike a nice deep rumble and I love it. The bike had noticeable power gains in the mid and top end, it doesn't lay down on the top end like it used to. I would recommend this pipe to anyone.
