Stock vs Arrow Thunder Sound Comparo

Ok.. finally got round to doing it. It was a surprisingly easy installed after I figured out that there was another bolt on the other side of the bike holding the catalytic converter on! doh! If it were not for that I would say that it took me 15 minutes for removal and install.

Stock = 18 lbs
Arrow thunder with DB kiler = 4.4 lbs (Aluminum)

Net loss of weight =13.6 lbs without including the passenger pegs and the stock exhaust hanger.

Sounds fantastic. With or without the db killer. The db killer is easy on and off with a snap ring plier. I'll probably leave it off mine, the harleys here need a taste of their own medicine.

Here is the link to the video. You should listen to it on a PC with decent speakers. Believe me it sounds even better under load during riding conditions. An added bonus was that this exhaust does not get in the way of my right heel and cooking it like the stock one does.

Full installation notes w/pics on this thread when I get around to it.

Insert Arrow short midpipe. Install thunder slipon.

Re-install 2 springs for the header and 1 spring for the slipon.

Place Arrow exhaust hanger as shown in pic and secure with rearset screws (without rearset first). This is so you can tighten the strap screws. (Pic 7)
