I like those pipes. I saw a KZ chop on eBay once that basically had the same concept, but both were on one side sort of stacked.

Things I might change:

cut them on a vertical plane (like slash cuts, but pointing straight back, or even slightly outward, right at the cager's windows.

-or-

Add diesel flappers.

It has such an awesome hot rod sound to it ... I bet in person it's even more music to our ears. Nicely done.

Thanks guys,,,im pretty happy with the sound. I think I need bigger jets in the carbs, it idles good,,but when ya crack the wick it wants to die. But Im also still having some electrical problems. The tail light flickers when the RPMs fluctuate. That tells me there is something grounded that shouldnt be. Im exhuasted,,and done looking at it for a couple days. Got a gig this weekend so I probably wont get back to it until next week now

Im starting to get tired of working on it. just want it to be done.

So I have determined that I have something seriously fucked up in the wiring. I have officially bastardized the stock harness,,,thinking about completely rewiring it. Could do it with far less wires than I have now,,,many less connections. thinking its really the wise way to go. Gonna take a little longer to get her on the road, but I think for reliablity reasons, I would be farther ahead in the long run.

Yeah, I hacked up my system to. After a couple weeks I bought a used harness for 20 bucks. Checkout the thread...Metric Mayhem

Yeah man, that's what I was waiting for! The bike sounds good. Let us know if a bigger jet works out.

Sorry to hear about the wiring woes. I'm planning on completely rewiring my bike. They're notorious for having electrical issues.

Yep, Re-wire is the only way forword.

I've never built a bike yet and had any luck on an old unknown harness.
I always start from scratch now.
