Been watching these for a while and the price is right ( and realistic, in my mind ). Only one left now. :)

All gone...thanks :D

Now.. how to tell the wife :confused:


take her shopping and spend about the same amount on her. she's like oh honey your so sweet. then when the pipe shows up it might be hard for her to be too cross with you. :goodluck:

I bought my versys 2 months before getting permission. Living between 2 different states and a third place out of the country has a big advantage in these situtations.:D

25 years ago.... I had this elder-ish hunting buddy who really showed me the ropes. I mean this guy was a GURU. I asked him one time about a spat I was having with my girlfriend at the time... Ya know, "what to do or say"?

He stops walking in this ravine we were in, looks me in the face, Browning over his shoulder and says, "well kid, she'll either get over it or die with a grudge -- It only hurts 'til the pain goes away."

I will never forget those words... So when all methods fail .... revert to the above :p

The wife typically doesn't enjoy the man-from-brown visits ( especially in the Spring, my problem time of the year ) but I figured this one this way : The only problem I have with this bike is the sound of the motor and spending a little over $200 for a chance to improve that is better than getting another ( add-on, not a replace ) v-twin bike for better sound is a tad more expensive than that.

I recently installed this very slip on (I ordered it from Pipe City, however). While at first I was riding without the baffle, I have since put it back in. Nevertheless, I'm in love with the new sound. My bike now sounds more like a "bike" rather than a sewing machine.

I will say, that the shipper name is actually "ARROW EXHAUST USA"

Out of Henderson, NV

Maybe he's an Official USA distributor. Typically these Distributors are few when it comes to imported motorcycle parts.

Mine was is a factory sealed box with arrow official tape ... Comes with a very nice quiet core that is held in with a big snap ring. The tip of the end cap is laser welded, and the unit is of very high quality... ain't no cheap junk.

It is the new style?? (unless there is one I haven't seen yet) for the 2010-11 with the adjustable lip on the top. I plan on ordering it at my favorite dealers open house the beginning of April. 20% off parts and accesories that day so I will wait until then.

It will be the one that has sharp angles along the sides ... The new one is the straight cut main shield ... They both have the lip on top

Went on Twisted Throttle today and saw what you are talking about. Wasn't aware that one came out but I think I like that style better. Looks wider at the bottom. Think I am going to try and get that one.

Got mine yesterday, a delay in shipping due to SNOW. It looks really nice but I won't a chance to fit ( or use ) it until we loose the 3 feet of snow we got over the weekend :(

A fuzzy picture but it looks really nice, just hope it improves the sound as well.
