I had my previous Jackpot headers done myself.For those that have them installed, did you do the install yourself or did you have someone else do it? I am thinking of putting these on my 2019 Roadmaster.
The tune helped a little too.....LOLI installed my Rinehart Headers last year. The power range with this setup is excellent. Low, middle and top are all good. The sound is also a nice improvement. I posted a YouTube video of the pipes installed and running.
I also did my cam change to the 585, along with the spring change. And a list of other things. The bike runs well and sounds good.
If you bought the whole complete Rinehart kit you will have everything you need to install the pipes and headers. When removing the stock exhaust. I leave the headers tight and mounted to the frame. I remove the mufflers then remove the headers. I found that a little penetrating oil works well for this.
That's interesting to know. I think I am going to put on the D&D 2:1 to try out.
I had experienced some scraping right and left too.
LOL. Yes, I have scraped both sides and I have the shields relocated to be as high as I can. I also added a taller rear tire. The taller rear tire makes the 585s a little better around town. I do like that combination and It also gives me more clearance for cornering. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FK33NNC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1I had experienced some scraping right and left too.
BUT it all was just some heat shield edges ... (obviously you can mount/angle them differently depending on the hose clamp positioning and clamping down)
Meanwhile ... after some real life "clearencing" ... I am again at scraping my rear muffler bodies and floorboards . Just like before.
The rear muffler body scraping is very much dependant on rearspring preload (meanwhile I have an airshock) and weight in the rear (pillion or not, stuffed bags or not).
Light weight and all cranked up ... floorboards/mounts are the limiting factor.
So in my book the Rinehart headers are not better or worse clearance wise than any other exhaust system (including 2-1).
To exploit further with a high and short 2-1 system we need to raise the floorboards
