:thumbs: I have given it some thought for a while especially because to 2 in 1 shows a bit better performance. I did think it looks like the front bend comes down a bit lower than my 2 in 2 just by looking with the naked eye. I cannot really afford to go any lower with my 2 in 2 hitting like they do and I am running stock height. Wanted to bring the rear down but have trouble justifying with scraping now.

I have always leaned toward the two pipe look myself. I like the look of my 2 in 2 and also the Freedom Sharp curves. Just afraid to make a move a regret it man. ;D

Yeah buddy I hear that, my bike has progressive lower springs in forks and air ride in the rear and it definitely touches down , with that said you can adjust your lines and still run a pretty good pace lowered with the 2-1.

I think having the increased ground clearance would help pick up a few mph of entry/exit speeds but for what it does now Iím happy with the looks and backroad performance of the ole girl !
:thumbs: You got it man, it's not like we are running sport bikes or are on the track or strip anymore ;D
Just stay behind me and everything will be just fine - really it will  8)

Says the guy that rides more on two wheels then three !! Lmao
Lean till it grinds , then lean some more ..

    Funny you say that - went for a short ride Saturday - sitting at a red light to make a left turn - light changed, head into the intersection and right as I turned the handlebars to the left I hit second, gave it some throttle and the left front came up about 6 inches - I need to get this new stabilizer installed soon.

      We ordered four of em here in Meade Co. yesterday...And yes, you will grind a flat spot on that low bend of the pipe cover. After that the frame's scraping the road and that's about as far as she's gonna lean anyway.

      Those not good if u ride a lot of curves, they set too low and drag

      They fine on stock height raider , and they only drag some on a lowered raider... I think with fork extensions they might not even hit , Ron 505 would know for sure though

      On my bike with V&H 2-1, the front header pipe drags only if dragging the pegs in corners. Stock suspension with a 240 on the back. The heat shield on mine is worn flat almost paper thin. But again, very aggressive cornering.

      Iím surprised your front peg mounts have not touched down, mine have pretty bad along with frame in the rear.... donít mind pipe hitting but the hard parts makes your line change and thatís no good !

      I definitely should have ordered one!  Mine has a flat spot like xmanrigger's plus the rear is really ground down, but that's from being lowered and riding two up.  Also, I have the 3" fork extensions in the front, which gives me better clearance up there, but I've still scrapped my frame and pipe on the front as well.  And my pegs are due to be replaced.

      Damn, this was a great deal.  They still want $1,124 for the 2-into-1 from fortnine.ca here in Canada! Crazy....
      I emailed them to see if they could do anything about matching prices and they (of course...) could not.

      Mine has the same scraping on the exhaust due to leaning around right hand bends, so anyone that got a set for $375 gone a great deal and lucky you...
