I have been looking at the two bros pipes. I haven't been able to find a sound clip though. Are they fairly low and throaty or are they more high pitched like a D&D? Also, Is $420 a good price or can you find them for better?

Nice bike MRED. Just ordered the C4 CF-Xmetal for my bike. Should be here by the weekend. I'm new to this whole motorcycle mechanic thing. Is this something I could do myself? Will I need to take the right fairing off to get to the hearders (whatever those are :))? Do I need a back swingarm stand to do this or will the kickstand suffice? I'm usually pretty good at figuring things out if the instructions are good. What do you think?

Thanks for all the comments fellas! More mods to come, just need the time to do them:D. If anyone wants/needs to hear what a 2 Bros. sounds like, PM me a phone number and I'll give you a call.

mattyesco: It's not too loud, but not too mello either. Sounds great through each rev range, I love it!

Mr. Speed: I got mine that way (no reflectors). But I would assume that you can just pop them off (being careful not to mess up the paint). Since there are no holes, probably just adhesive.

sgates: nice can. I wasn't too sure on the xmetal but it looks sweet on your red bike.

Squidly: I had the same prob. when I was looking for a sound clip. PM me a phone # and I can let you hear it. 3 people have already hear it that way[8D]. I couldn't find anyone cheaper that parts411. Service was also good, fast delivery. My total price was $404 delivered. D&D is anything but high pitched. If you want deep/loud, go with the D&D or Hindle. I got the 2 Bros. because it seemed to be in the middle.

02ninja: I actually emailed a pic (not of the plate # of course) to the Texas motorcycle division of DPS. My response was that no it's really not legal. He said that it wouldn't take much (riding through a puddle) to obstruct the view of the plate. He said that most (if not all) officers would either give me a warning or write a ticket for it. But on the other hand, I have had cops behind me many times (even at stop signs/lights), and nothing has ever happened. I guess if you give them a reason to stop you, they can just add the plate location to a list of tickets. I'll worry about it when the time comes[:p].

LVALNITE: Yes you can do it yourself. It's pretty easy. You don't have to take the fairings off. Take off the 3 bolts on each side, and the fairings will "swing down" far enough so you can get to the clamp that holds the S bend to the header. When you take off the stock pipe, make sure you get the graphite sleeve out of the old pipe (where the S bend mates to the header) to re-use for the new one. I have a set of stands and it did make it easier to work on, but I suppose you can do it from just using the kickstand. Just have someone hold the bike up straight before you tighten everything up to make sure it's straight.

arturo, do you recall how much his ticket was? I haven't been pulled over yet, but I'm sure my time is coming[8D]. Since it's not a clear cut law, it is up to the cop whether or not to write a ticket. I guess I'll take my chances for now. We need to get together so you can show me where the twisties are...

I have mine tucked in the same place. i don't even have reflectors or crap on there.. i just drilled some holes and put er on there.
got a speeding ticket last week, cop didn't say anything about it, i have mine tucked further back though.. so it's not at a steep ass angle, when i get back to my own computer i'll put some pics in this thread, there's some other pics of mine floating around here somewhere.
