Bought the pipes late last month. Finally got around to installing them last night. The pipes look great on my 08 midnight. It's winter so I'm unable to ride right now, but I did start the bike up for about 30 seconds. It's thunder loud. I might have to get some baffles. My main complaint is a big one. The rear pipe is sopposed to have two heat sheilds. I was only supplied with one. I was also supplied with two incorrect clamps. The clamps are trivial. But the missing heat shield really irritates me. I'm going to try to contact samson on monday. I'll post later and tell everybody what the customer service experience is like. Normally when your putting together stuff like this it's pretty common to be shorted a screw or a bolt, but to be shorted something as cosmetically important as a heat shield is unacceptable. Don't get me wrong. I'm not dissapointed with the pipes themselves. I just think samson needs to get their stuff together. This kind of stuff shouldn't happen. If anybody else has had a similar experience with samson I'd like to know about it, and how it turned out.
