i rode it just after finishing the pipes. i have tons of leg clearance no concern of heat, only location i may have issue is near my cam cover, i have less than 1/2 inch clearance there. they actually sit closer to the motor than my bubs did. as for baffles, none. if i really need some i will take the ones out of my bubs, but i loved how it now is loud at idle and at wide open. im hoping the stock flanges i used chokes it enough to not loose any real power. it feels as good as it did before if not better but it also was 34 deg that day

how thick is the tubing you are using for the handle bars? It doesnt take much strength going down the road, but when you tie it down in the back or a truck/trailer, thats a different story!

Also, once you get them how you want them I would suggest a good LONG ride to make sure they are comfortable enough before you spend the money to have them chromed or ?

I know an idiot that thought it would be cool to make a quick set of drag bars out of a 1" curtain rod strung up on the stock risers...he couldnt ride it for more than about 30 miles before he had to stop and pop some more ibuprofen...my back still cringes thinking about that

So loud that you will wonder why your rding mates always want you to be at the back of the pack. They look great, though.

That looks really good with the 2" pipes. I bet you lose some torque though, since 2" pipes just aren't going to have as much velocity as a smaller pipe, but I admit they do look better. When I was building my pipes, I could feel the torque difference just from adding the collector and going from a 2-2 exhaust to 2-1

I know exactly how loud your pipes are too Good job though!

These are great! Good work on the pipes & the bars. Only problem I see is there is no parts list post so we can copy them!

Nicely done.

You can always put some "torque" cones in the ends of the pipes to get a little back pressure .

See the picture.

the spacer i built to adapt the 1.5 bars to a 1/2 coarse threaded bolt. i saw that the punnishers had to have spacers, so rather than install spacers i built my adapter to give me the clearance and still keep the gap tight. tonight im going to finish opening the holes on the bottom end of the bars so i can run wiring and cables internally. ill post more pics tomorow
