Nice finishing touch to the 4" Screaming Eagle street cannons I put on my FLHXS! They do stick out a bit more that the stock muffs, but I kinda thing that was a good thing. Not a fan of the "sparkly" inside, but log a few miles and they turn into that forbidden "Dark Place".
Not a lot to say: Cosmetically it is miles ahead of the stock linkage and the install was straight forward. Only issue I had was the one I bought was missing a one of the 2 chrome bolts which cost me some time, but other than that I'm a big fan!
The only thing I was a bit of unsure of at first was the shiney inside of these tips - made them look a bit goofy. The good news is after a few hundred miles they darken up inside to create that sinister dark place "inside" .
Cue the orchestra. We tuned these mufflers to provide an exhaust note with some extra deep bass. You get the rumble you want and enhance that famous Harley sound, while preserving the peace with your neighbors.
Whoa. If the sound of these doesn't stir that primal beast in you to pound your chest and swing from stop light-to-stop light in the concrete jungle, well, you probably shouldn't be on a Harely. Impressive low end "not so humble grumble" without that at speed drone one can get with a set of loud two-into-twos (which I was a big fan of in my younger days). Now I can be obnoxious when I want to be, not all the time :-)
If not for the stainless screws, I'd have given this 5 stars. For the money spent I think 2 chrome screws would have gone a LONG way to completing this cosmetice upgrade. Also, on the install: make certain you tighten the screws properly and cover all the parts of the bicke you don't want brake fluid on. Getting the screws to set is key and getting the resevoir level wihout help is challenging. (You don't want the bars snapping back to the left with that cover off!).
Aside from the nuances of the install (i.e. positioning your bike correctly and covering all areas that could get hit with fluid), easy to install and a great bit of bling. My only issue is the money spent for a chrome upgrade that comes with stainless screws. That was a let down and robs the joy of the spend and the install.
Going back to my '99 Fat Boy, I thought that replacing the floor boards, shifting pegs and rear brake pedal would be mandatory. Then I realized that Harley actually put nice looking floor boards and matching brake pedal on the FLHXS. A realization that left me begging the question: "Why not the shifter pegs?" It's rhetorical, so that said, these are a perfect match for the FLHX(S) and extremely easy to install.
The part really sets of the lower front of your bike without being over-bearing. Fit is excellent, but installation can be a bit wonky if you don't have a bike stand, a second set of hands, or some good 'ol school dish soap to lube up the grommets! (I obviously had only the latter). One of the best-spent pile of coins I've made for my bike.
