Hey

As I begin to mod my 2002 mean streak I have come to like the Samson Street sweepers but have some questions

- Most of the time I hear people talk about VH pipes. They seem to be the most popular. Do any of you have experience with Samsons? Do they blue?

- Is there a source for pipes that makes some that are not the straight types? I like the curve at the end of the Samson but would not mind something more radical

- How loud are Samsons really? When I ride in group with non cruiser folk I would like to be civilized in their midst and the sweepers do not take baffles

Thanks

I have them on my 04. I like 'em a lot. No issue with blueing but my bike stays properly tuned. They are not loud to me............but they are LOUD. I would not use the word civilized to describe them. Everybody and their cousins have VH pipes, they get old real fast.

I have V&H but I don't think my cousin does....lol. I have a HD couple who have samsons on their 95th anniversary HD sportster and they love em. Don't recall seeing any blueing on them so I'd say they are good to go, and they sound great on their ride.

My uncle has them on his meanie, and I will agree that they are loud........ But they sound very good, I would agree that they are not civilized. I also agree that everyone has the V and H pipes, that is why I chose the new cobra speedster longs. They sound excellent.

Just my opinion......... but I don't like the look of those Samson's at all. Maybe I am just getting old and grumpy? :)
