    Has anyone tried this? Just running open head pipes that is. Thinking it may just sound obnoxious I don't know. I know the shorty look is popular on some bikes, but don't know if it would work.

    I have no mufflers on mine....sounds bad a**. Should be no problem as long as everything is set up for the additional air flow.

    I started mine without pipes or anything on it once....Wife thought I broke it.

    OK, curiosity got the best of me so I took off the mufflers and took it for a spin. At idle, I thought it sounded awesome. But under acceleration, it loses all of its throatiness and just sounds kinda like a chainsaw on steroids. I even thought the head pipes looked goot because the heat shield doesn't show the unfinished end of the pipe for a somewhat finished look. I think I need a more refined sound though, like stock just louder. But if you don't like your neighbors, go fot it.

    yeah i installed a hypercharger and was waiting on my new pipes to arrive so i took the mufflers off. As before, i would not recomend it unless you hate your neigbors. it pretty lound and obnoxious. And it backfired alot.

    now i have installed a set of pcs curburners. these do not have a muffler either but the pipes are reduced where they come out of the motor. they are loud but not like before and no backfiring. i have a noticeable gain in performance with the hypercharger and pipes.

    any one have a pic of their bike with no pipes?

    Never took a pic but it only takes 5 minutes to take off. Then you'll have the mental picture forever
