Hard Krome 3" Res-Tech Exhaust Pipes 6 Years, 8 Months ago  
Has any body put a set of Hard Krome 3" Res-Tech Exhaust Pipes ON? I wanted nice looking pipes without the annoying loudness. I love the sound of the v-twin but when it shakes the house and sets off car alarms it is too much. The Res-Techs are suppose to be Reduced Exhaust Sound. Has any body got them. Give me the low down.

Thanks.

Got a set on a 2006 R* sittin in my garage...

BUT they are on Bushr Jackson's bike....

Yep he supervised the install
Any hoo...when we do our noise party we compare the Megacone to the RES techs

The RES tech sound very good...soft on idle but with a good roar on throttle...
look very nice...

The Megacone is louder on idle but similar on the throttle..

They are quieter than the older 3" hard chromes

Maybe he will give his opinion when he gets on line...

They are a very nice set of pipes..

I love the look and the sound. When you are on the throttle they are loud but very cilvilized when not cranking it. I have good neighbours so when I go to work at 6am and I don't wake them up--but could if they weren't.

I also noticed better acceleration after I put them on.

Don't forget to take off the side cover when you install them and grab a buddy to help. It's about a two beer job but in our case it was probably four or five cause I like to take breaks when I supervise. burp

There on in my pic.

After putting on the pipes, did you have to rejet the carb?

Most times the stock carb will stand up to aftermarket pipes with no rejetting necessary, but at most you will only maybe need to tweak the PMS setting.
