I like the tank. The color is nice too. I think the rear fender need a little more attention. Other than that, nice job. I'd ride it!

Bike looks good dude.

My coil will be in the same spot in a few days. Haven't found any wires locally yet that are short enough that aren't bright colors. Out of curiosity, how long are those plug wires and where did ya get them?

Did you keep the Supertrapp? I'm curious to know how it performs.

It's the best "performance" pipe for a Sportster available. ;)

I'm trying to decide between the 2/2 or the 2/1 Supertrapp and I have a few questions about fit.

I used Screamin' Eagle "FXR" wires from the dealer. I don't remember how much they were, but surprisingly, they weren't very much.

keep in mind my motor has been juiced up:)
2 into 1 is were the power is but, i dont think that the supertrapp is the best, or sounds all that great... my money is on a thunderheader, (all evo's) they have a great sound and killer performance... i have run a couple pipes on mine (supertrapp/whitebrothers) and nothing has outperformed the thunderheader... thats jus my 2 cents and its only worth bout half that...

by the way good looking moto, keep up the good work

Holy shit, mud on my face! I don't know WTF I was thinking when I typed that. I've commented a hundred times that a T/H is the best. I guess I just saw the 2 into 1, and cone shape muff and spewed...

Resurrecting an old thread here. Just installed my new supertrapp 2-1 exhaust, looking at how yours is mounted up without the oem bracket. I attached mine to the oem bracket per the instructions from supertrapp but am unsure about the clearance. It doesnt touch the motor or covers anywhere but touches the belt guard which makes me think it will probably melt a bit.
So is yours only attached by the headers? Or do you have another bracket somewhere?

Lose the belt guard?

FUCK! Now that song will be bouncing around my brain for a few days...

Long, and tan, and young and lovely,
the girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes each one she passes goes...AHhhhh...

Well, I guess the song can work for a good lookin' bike like that!
