If anybody really cares, I'm sure they'll speak up.

I care dammit....I CARE !!!!!!!!!!!!

If the site goes tits up I'll have nowhere to screw the pooch when I'm supposed to be working.....The HD Forums are full of newbies that want to know whats the loudest pipes they can find...CW is about as interesting as a plastic sack full of jellyfish........Maximum Suzuki is getting a little gentrified....even SportTouring.net is getting a little stale....

ho-hum..

I'm not sure why people are have such a tough time with the forums. I mean, is it really that different from other forums?

... can't even open an aspirin bottle. Have you noticed that they have to put warnings on paint cans to keep people from drinking it? And from reading the forums I'd bet that 90% of motorcyclists are incapable of even changing their own oil. You know how difficult THAT is. If they aren't aren't willing to pick up a wrench every once in a while I'd prefer they stay in the monkey cages.

Maybe MO needs a step by step tutorial on how to use a freakin mouse. "1.Place arrow on desired place. 2.Press left button. 3.Repeat as necessary."

I'd bet that the real reason people hate it is that it takes about two minutes to figure it out. Longer than the average attention span these daze.

Do tell. Your Seattle buddy told us that CW was the cat's ass. I learn something new every day. By the way, which pipes are the loudest? :wink:

What gets me is that a guy that never posts, never asked for help, never said 'Boo', now suddenly announces his departure, and he what does he expect? Nobody really gives a shyt is what he should expect. Maybe they can redesign the site so he will stay? I know I would. He's obviously so valuable that we need to do whatever it takes to keep this guy. Maybe we could pay him to stay? Should we beg him to stay? Sheesh.

trouble maker........


One thing that tickles me is them all getting a boner for Reinhart True Duels....Correct me if I'm wrong here but wasn't the balance pipe on twins developed by Triumph and proven to improve and balance flow at low and mid-range thereby increasing torque?

The only time straight duels are going to help are at high RPM racing applications....Most of those boneheads would wet themselves if they ever got over 2500 RPM

Longride, I'd guess them West Coast Chopper straight pipes that basically come out of the heads and point down would be the loudest.............

I SAID, THE WEST COAST CHOPPER ONES....

....

I can't say who invented the balance tube, but I do know that every real performance exhaust has one. I also know that part of their performance improvement comes from having one cylinder's exhaust help scavange the other cylinder(s) and increase the fuel/air charge flowing in on the suck stroke. My Low Rider ran much better with the stock exhaust with the x-over tube than it does with drag pipes.

They also help...

...reduce exhaust noise so you can get away with smaller mufflers when running dual mufflers, 4-into-2s, 4-into-4s etc.
