    Sooooo....from what I understand Warrior pipes fit our bikes.
    That's what I'm waiting for someone to confirm. I know there are some of you on here that have Warriors. Can someone with a Warrior and Raider confirm this?

    I just was looking at a pic of this. I can't access the site here at work but I can confirm that the sampsons for the warriro do fit the raider but you have to modify the support bracket. Will post a pic when I get home tonight.

    This one here?
    Looks like it's confirmed as far as I read.

    ps - check out this guy's pulley / brake setup!

    I found one of my distributors who had one set of the Cobra Dragsters left in stock, so I ordered them. Seeing as how whatever I buy is going to be temporary, I wanted these to begin with, cause they are relatively cheap. I have ridden two different Raiders with these pipes on, and they sound good enough, but they lack a crossover pipe, so I know they are going to detract from power. The only other choice for in stock pipes right now are the Cobra Speedster Slashcuts and I do not like the look of them plus they are more expensive.
    I recently installed the Speedster Slashdowns on my Raider and am very happy with the results.....considered the Dragsters, but couldn't see them till Sept. and had a slight "accident" with the stock pipes (read- got carried away taking the baffles out ) Got a killer deal thru my dealer....$545 out the door, had em next day. The more I looked at the swepts, the more I hated the looks of em due to the goofy bends in the front pipe....it just doesn't flow with the bike well.

    Very easy to install, instructions were clear.....they do have the crossover in the mufflers. Definetly louder than the stock pipes with no baffles left. Mellow at road speed, nice bark under accelleration, and the butt dyno says a definite increase in low end torque over the stock pipes, plus a guesstimate of about a 75-100 lb loss of weight on the right side due to the stock exhaust being gone.......I wasn't sure about them due to the length, but they actually look really nice with the black....didn't like them on a blue bike though.

    Plus with the Speedsters you can flip the passenger pegs to get more legroom if you have someone ride with you, where you can't with the swepts...not sure about the dragsters. Going to pull the baffles out once just to see how it sounds, but I'm betting I'll be putting them back in....I really do like my hearing

    Has anyone weighed the stock pipes? Damn, they're heavy...

    OK, now I am leaning towards Mortons. Does anyone have a sound clip and Power Commander map?

    Trailer hitch for 650 silverado?

    There's another thread somewhere from someone else that has another video... I remember they actually spat a few flames out during a backfire, I'm not sure if that guy had a map done right or what... couldn't find that thread though.

    Thanks for link, I saw the one with the backfire, I have to think it was either mapped wrong or not at all. I have heard that the early Morton's had some quality / fitment issues but that it was being resolved. Anyone know if these issues have been resolved.
