          +1 on the Freedom performance exhaust. If you go that route call Shane from SS customs.

            Damn Shores you beat me to it. But yep. I plan to get some 4" HD touring slip ons to replace my Bassani 4" megaphones. I just don't like the sound from the megaphones; especially the tips, they create this high frequency sound that I just don't like so I removed them. I want deeper. There are lots of good aftermarket options. Mutazu makes some nice 4" cans for around $200 or you can find used Reinharts, etc. on ebay. Or, if you want nice deep tone but not too loud, then stock *open* HD touring slip ons. NOT the ones with the catalytic converter inside.

              I like my Freedoms. If you go with Bassani check out our sponsor Rock River Powersports.

                    They almost never go for sale used but here is a set of freedoms. He is willing to ship and price is Canadian. Plus has a full setup of RSV bags too.

                      I run the bassani true duals and if I had to do it over I would get the freedom performance pipes. I run stretched bags and had to lower them so the mufflers are tucked in and the freedoms sit higher. I drag my bags way to often.

                        just wondering if anyone has done a bassani headpipe, Indian muffler combo yet.. someone did a Bassani headpipe and Rinehart muffler combo recently that sounded really good.

                        FYI Bassain's sit a little lower than the Freedom pipes do. If you are a fast rider in the curves this could make a difference between scaring or not. I have had both and personally I think that the Bassani's seem to have a little better quality to them. They are a little louder than the freedoms, except the freedom sharktails that I have now are pretty loud as well.
                        owning a motorcycle is not a matter of life or death, it is much more important than that

                          If I crank my Roadwing RAP up I have to work *really* hard to scrape my pipes while riding, but my boards touch down long before that. It's mostly coming out of deep driveways and curbs that I get most of my rash. I swapped the button head screw on the tips for a hex head bolt and it acts as a sacrificial slider.

                        Thinking the same with the sharkfins ends.

                          The Indian thing sounds cool, but knowing Indian, even the take-offs are likely way over priced. Who wants to do the homework and try this out? Picts and video are a must.

                            I have been wanting to try this. I have a set of OEM Indian mufflers in the garage. But, I need to keep ahold of them, as some say that the stage 1 mufflers I have on it now get really loud as they get older. The last time I had my freedom fishtail tips off, I slid the mufflers over the end of the pipes to see how it sounded, It was great, But I could only rev it up a little because they would have vibrated off the end. Plus there is a baffle inside of the freedom pipes that would cause an affect on the sound. If I could find a cheap set of used Bassani headpipes I would try this, but can't justify buying them new right now. BTW you can get used OEM mufflers (not the fishtails) for pretty cheap on Eaby... The cats are in not in the Indian mufflers, but the headpipe... If anyone lived close by with Bassani's and wanted to stop buy and try them on to see how they would sound I would love to try it. I also have a set of catless OEM HD mufflers if they wanted to try them as well,, maybe compare the 2........ and of course, if anyone just wanted to donate a set of Bassani headpipes to the "Bassani Experimental Exhaust Reasearch" (BEER) let me know and I will send you a shipping address

                          I went with Bassani, at the time I purchased, Freedom was having some rust/chrome issue, not sure if they corrected it yet. No issues with my Bassani's.
