No need to apologize. I bid $300 because I didn't want anyone to "steal" it for $200. Any less than $300 it would have been mine to sit on a shelf. I have a scraped up Speedstar sitting in my garage and already bought a set of V&H Big Radius to replace it. I'm a courtesy sniper myself. For something I really want, I put in a bid for just over opening, then snipe in the last 20 seconds.

Congratulations on winning 68ramair!

We'll then. . . perhaps we should negotiate a trade on the muffler We can negotiate off line. I'll take pics if needed.

Looks like we have another happy owner of the 2-1-2 Megacone exhaust. Congrats Rapomcar; Enjoy!

Ok, so I really don't get all the hype about the speedstar exhaust. Is it because they don't make it anymore? I get that it's a 2-1-2 and angled up more than the pro pipe but I think the pro pipe looks much better, flows better, and provides the same amount of performance. Plus I was able to lower the passenger pegs.

I have the propipe also, so maybe I'll do the whole comparison thing. The ss adds some ground clearance, but just touches my saddle bags. I have ghost brackets, so that's not a big deal other than I can't run the bags. The ss is also heavier and seems more solid. The propipe may drag but allows for saddle bags. Right now we're into the 40's and dropping, so no good riding until spring.

I have EasyBrackets (similar to ghost brackets I think) and I positioned them so that I could use my bags with the stock pipe. So they also work with the Speedstar 2-1-2. These are the Saddlemen XL size bags and the tops are level with most seats so that I can put a trunk bag across the back of the seat.

I have had several Speedstar and a couple propipes.One members Dyno comparisons of the 2 showed the Speedstar to give more power.

A big thing for me is the ground clearance . The propipe will scrape.
Not sure, but inner diameter of the headers might be larger on Speedstar.

The sound of the Speedstar pipe is very unique and distinctive. At first I wasn't crazy about the look where the muffler and header meet but overall I like the look of it better than the Propipe.

So, for my use and tastes the Speedstar leads on all counts.

Your bags are smaller than mine. I do have a smaller set with brackets that would probably work, I'll have to dig them up if I want to use the s*. I just like the bigger set because I tend to forget I'm on the bike and over buy.
