I think your bike is looking great, but I have one question. I see you have a tool bag mounted in the obvious place. I have been debating mounting mine in the same place in fear of hitting the fender. It is a close fit. I would appreciate any feedback or thoughts.
Thanks,

It does hit the fender! It has made a small dull spot where it hits the fender on good bumps I have been thinking of moving it to the spot on the frame above the radiator. There is a protective clear plastic bumper sticker they sell for cars that I have cut a peace to put on the fender in that spot so it won't rune the paint. I first had it above the head light but was not a fan of how it looked

Yea, I know the stuff you are talking about. I think I am a bigger fan of the "above the radiator" location. I have tried it there as well as top of the handle bars. With the windshield on the Interstate I find it a little akward on the bars.

I put my tool bag on the handelbar risers, behind my windshield, but then I have an Interstate. I don't see why it wouldn't fit fine here even without one though and not get in the way. Kind of like a glove box of sorts.

They are great! they look better by far the install was fairly easy.
They are louder but not to loud they deff add some power no more throttle and wait.
I am very happy with them.
The hardest part of the installation is putting the cobra mounting bracket on in place of the stock one. the rest is easy.

Tommy,
How is that cobra pipe compared to stock pipe ?

Louder? lower? throatier ?

I am thinking about replacing my stock pipe.

Thx
