Had Hard Krome 2.75 Big Straights put on and also had it Jetted. The Hard Kromes sound great. Nice low tone while cruising and will wake the dead when I snap the throttle. I previously had the Roadhouse 65 slip ons.... HUGE difference with full exhaust! Very deep and throaty rumble. Now for the jetting.. I can feel a substantial difference in power. My throttle response time is almost nothing, especially going from 2nd to 3rd. I had noticed with the slip ons that the bike felt sluggish here before. Keep in mind that I have only put about 100 miles on it since these changes but so far so good!

nice,I wanted some HK but the price was to high and am happy with the Cobra's.Did it make that big of a difference between slip-ons and the full set? The Cobra's are a full system on my Shadow but have some sweet slip-ons for my new Sporty but can't put them on until I get my 500 break in miles on,at 200 now but the past 3 days have been my first riding days since I got the Sportys.Now possible snow again this weekend :cry:

How much was the rejet and did you supply the kit or did the shop? I have a kit and I'm going to get it rejetted in a couple weeks and I'd like to get a ballpark figure on what it should cost.
Total cost to install pipes, rejet and purchase the kit at the dealer $221. Not sure of the break down. I know the Cobra Jet Kit was $85 of that $221. Labor at this shop is $58 per hour so if my math is right... about 2 hours labor involed in the pipes and re jetting.
