Christmas came early...
« on: Dec 09, 2020, 09:43:05 pm »
Been contemplating this for a while since my V&H 2in2 are just beat up, Monday night I ordered this set of Freedom Performance Sharp Curves. Today they showed up, two days unreal but they had a distribution center in Texas. My V&H will stay on as long I don't see significant damage. I just thought I would get the Freedoms before they discontinue making them.  ;D

      :agree: Yeah the V&H will probably be trash after those runs ;D Also thinking of adding the 2" or 3" fork extensions when I do install the Freedom's. Just don't want then dinged them up also and need to quit riding this thing like a sport bike. Doing that set up I think I'd kinda be in Clayton's category but I think he told me he's lowered in the rear by an inch. VMax can handle that now it's got plenty of lean angle...Unlike my first 85 Max, it was straight and nothing else or you were puckered up. They have come a long way in handling.

      :thumbs: I appreciate it man. I actually had a guy on FB that wanted to trade me NIB V&H 2in1 for my used 2in2 until I showed him the pix of the scrapes and where it is actually cracking the heatshield upward into the good chrome. I tried to buy his 2in1's but he shot me down on that but said he would still be interested in purchasing my 2in2's but to be honest I will probably run them until they start looing really bad.

      say my brother I may still be interested in the pipes,  I'm looking for a set of pipes that fit our bike,   I want to make a set of 2 into 1 my way that are ground pounders that will exhaust out below the stretch bags I'm wanting to put on,   when it's time to get rid of them  Thank You O8O
