I've cut down and gutted stock pipes with decent results.

Like obed said, a slip-on isn't going to yield any noticeable performance gains.

I know you're going for sound - which I agree is a good thing. The big mufflers on today's bikes make them sound so quiet they're just anemic. But you don't really need to play the "loud pipes save lives" card. That's such a lame, baseless reason and I get REAL tired of listening to the Harley guys try and justify their straight shot pipes by saying it will make them more noticeable. Maybe more noticeable to people standing on the side of the road but I highly doubt that a straight pipe makes any difference out on the road.

Just be honest and 'fess up that you're after a better sounding bike (just try not to get obnoxious).

People seem scared of the harley and give me my space, it's two different worlds switching bikes for me anyway....
