The 06-07 guys on the 10R forum were getting them for $200.00.
good deal for dual slip ons. I think they look pretty good on yours and the 10R

i haven't open it up to get any popping yet. i only took it around the block for a quick spin after the install. i did notice smoke from the exhaust but i'm assuming that's because it's new and will go away once everything burns in. i'll check for popping when i take it for a real test. the heat on the legs i feel in the summer time is from the frame itself. will gutted cats reduce this?

guaranteed it will reduce it a ton.. its really only about 15 minutes to get the cat out and it restricts air flow really bad the main thing to the engine is letting it breath trust me do yourself a favor take a screw driver and chizzle it out. It makes a world of difference with heat makes my engine run about 4 degrees cooler and sounds a little bit deeper..

Gutting the cat will also save your rear shock. There is a flaw in the design. The cat is located too close to the nitrogen reservoir on the stock shock and will fry it. Trust me, I went through one already.
