Well after a 11 hour Friday at work I am tired and hungry,then I pull up in the driveway and there on the porch after only 2 days are my new pipes (speedster longs -w- power port). Suddenly I'm not so hungry and sooo not tired! I ordered them from Parts Direct for 457.00 with free shipping. Two days later they are on my porch! That is good service. I am leaving for a week so the install will have to wait.

Couple of things when/after your install:

#1 - Be patient with the brackets. They can be VERY frustrating. Have a couple of beers ready.

#2 - After installing the pipes, use chrome polish to get your fingerprints off before your first crank so that they don't get permanently imprinted - per the instructions. I used work gloves but still applied three coats just in case.

#3 - Take pics.

Thanks for the tips. I have used the bracket/ beer, bracket /beer method before, works well! These are going on my 07 900 classic. I'll will post pics (sharing is part of the experience)

Don't make us wait for pics. Life can wait. Put the pipes on. Take pictures. Make a sound clip. We need happiness. :D


And at least I put the bike in my shot of the box my pipes came in. :p

When I put Bub Chambermaids on my meanie it was a four-beer job. Talk about rough!!!:eek:
FOUR:eek: now that sounds a lot like work;)

I don't know if this is connected but... last year I rode a 3 up chairlift while skiing and the "young men" next to me lit up a joint and offered me a toke, I politly declined an his partner said " You sure dude you know this is a two joint lift"
