After installing my new "strippers" last night I'm simply speachless. New pipes have been on my list of mods but I honestly didn't expect the results. Even the "HarleyGuy" that helped me install the pipes had to smile. What a sound! My little 650 grew up. I was totally blown away and I fully, and whole heartedly recommend Hardkrome's "strippers". The Guys and Gals at HardKrome deserve a pat on the back for a job well done. Though the old exhaust were a bit of a pain trying to wriggle them out between the frame and the engine, the strippers slide right into place with no problem.Not only do they sound phenomenal, but adding the black ceramic pipes to an already mostly black bike simply looks just too cool. I also think I should toss a little "hats off" mention in here about Phat Performance parts. This was a speedy delivery, right on time, and everything in order. I'll post a new picture on here soon.

I just ordered the new style "HardKrome" strippers exhaust for my VStar. This is a much awaited improvement. Though VStars look great, the new pipes should give this bike even more of a custom flare than before. When I say new style what I really should be saying is color. They have very recently added the black ceramic coat to the strippers and I simply could not resist. Previously, I was thinking about the "Vance and Hines" shortshots. However, they only offer the black option to the Harley guys.Bummer...I really liked the slashcut ends, not to mention they sound great!At any rate, these pipes should be in around early next week so I will post more about them then. BTW, I elected to go with PhatPerformance. After searching around abit, they seem to have the best deal( At this time they offered free shipping , can't beat that).
