finally got around to making a seat lanyard, ended up that when the seat is hanging it makes a good place to lay your tools while working with battery or making connections. also made these bungee spools for about 10 bucks. Auto part Engine Fuel line Vehicle Wire

Yeah I watched all the videos and read all the reviews but for me, I just couldn’t really tell until they were on the bike and running.

they are louder than I wanted, even with the quiet baffles installed, but the sound is amazing. They aren’t bad at speed, but idling and off the line they are a little over the top.

on the plus side, they are absolutely beautiful. I liked the sound of the factory canons but they were just too massive. Even on the showroom floor that was the one thing on the bike I didn’t like.

took me about 45min to install them and it was the first time I ever installed slip-ons so I was probably way too overly cautious. If I had to do it again I could do it in 20min no sweat.

They are indeed sexy!

Loud? Scale 1 to 10?
I am honestly not qualified to put them on that kind of a scale, sorry. I rode with them some more today and I am getting where I like them, quite a lot actually.

They are considerably louder than factory, not quite "that guy" loud, but still loud enough for me to be a little unsettled in my quiet neighborhood firing up the bike really late or really early in the morning.

If you force me to put them on the scale, with the bike off as 0, factory at about 3, and "that guy who competes in the loudest pipes competition" at 10, I would say somewhere around a 7 at a stoplight, 6 or 5 going down the road. Remember that these have the quiet baffles in them directly from Dean Speed.

Another way to look at it, if you have seen the show Sons of Anarchy, this bike would fit right in :)

I have some on order with the baffles and I’m very interested to see how the sound and loudness compares with my Reinharts. I suspect they will be somewhat quieter but if they are as loud I’m fine with that too 😎

Just installed two horns on my Scout, both FIAMM Freeway Blasters, one low, one high tone. One in the stock location and one below the front of the exhaust hanger. Custom wiring harness. No ground clearance issues either, this is not the lowest component on the bike.

Sound great and just as loud as my Denali Soundbomb and Marco Tornado horns on my other bikes and much easier to install than trying to hide an air compressor and routing an air line and installing a relay. Two tones are much better than one!

FIAMM 72102 Freeway Blaster HIGH Note Horn and FIAMM 72112 Freeway Blaster LOW Note Horn if you're interesting in doing the same.

Installed a dynojet quickshifter on my S60 this weekend then took it out for a nice test ride. The install was interesting to say the least. Initially the new shift rod wouldn’t thread in and after talking with DJ it was determined they packed the wrong one so they sent me the correct one and made it right. The tank was easy enough to pull off but plugging into the front injector was a pita....I almost gave up several times as it was a nightmare trying to get the retaining clip out on the injector plug in. Anyways after all that I couldn’t get my bike to shift through all the gears so I called DJ again and they help me identify the problem (my fault that time). It was pretty frustrating installing but now on the other hand......

I wish I had known about this product a couple years ago lol, it’s freaking awesome. Shifting is a breeze, super fast, and without any kind of hitching especially at higher rpms 6k+ which is the only way I ride my scout unless just cruising at highway speeds. Highly recommend!

Where did you find that stator cover in black with the silver contrast letters and image? That looks really sharp!

Earlier this week I went on a one day 590 mile ride on my Scout which is my longest one day trip yet. I also took her through 2 thunderstorms without issue; it was raining so hard during one storm that the water was flowing across the highway in one town and I couldn’t even see the asphalt. Finally, I made it 142 miles between available services and still had over half a galllon in the tank to spare. There’s nothing my girl can’t do 😎
