I'm about to install the Cobra pipes, with the S&S air cleaner and the Fi2000.
Is there anything I need to know before starting this project?
To those of you with the same setup, is there anything you can recommend? any issues you encountered?
Should I leave the baffles in? take em out? does it matter?
Thanks in advance for any information.

leave them in to start.also disconnect the battery and turn the key on for 30 minuts.turn key off and hook batt back up.when you start up let it run for 15 minuts without reving the engine.then you can start setting contoller.good luck.

Had the Cobra's put on today. No problems or issues from a buddy who installed them. Said they went on without a hitch. They sound great.

@460,
You didnt install the Fi2000 did you?

Thanks guys, Install went fine. Heat shields were a pain in the ass, with the hose clamps. I'm real happy with the pipes, sounds just about right.

You guys are making me jeolous! My pipes are just sitting in the box at the dealers waiting on my PC-V. ETA is not until first of next month! Waiting isn't my strong point.

Yes, I know what you mean. Those stock pipes made me feel somewhat in adequate,
Now I feel like a new man! LOL.
Relax, you only have to wait a couple weeks. Enjoy! Hey, did you paint your Bike? that looks really good.
I have the blue also, and I know eventually I will need to do something.

It is silver leaf and striping, but I think it really brings the lines of the bike out. I can't wait to get those pipes installed. I think the Cobra Swepts are THE pipe for this bike. Just follows the lines. I don't know WHAT Honda was thinking with the stock ones. They are just Fugly! LOL! My husband has the Cobra Swepts on his Raider and they sound oh so sweet!

if anyone plans on pulling the baffles, I recommend pulling them out before installing the pipes, I used a 1/2" 12" extension to knock them out...

really depends on how loud you like it. I put my pipes on with baffles in for awhile, they did sound much better over stock but just wasn't quite as loud as I wanted. I will say taking them out, just my opinion is a little too loud but does turn heads like a chopper should

yes. i put the fi2000 in myself,took a whole 20 minuts.
I ordered one as well. Should be here next week. I havent noticed any of the issues posted like the cold start issue, popping on decel, etc....Just to be safe I bought the Fi2000.

They sound perfect to me, with just the right amount of rumble.

I like the sound of these pipes because you can be somewhat quiet when you need to be, under low exceleration, like at 5:30 AM, riding out of my subdivision. Coming home, at 4:30 PM, I make sure my neighbors know I've got new pipes!

Just took my baffels out.

Wow. It I louder but not loud enough to get you in trouble. No more than any Harley on the road. Great sound and worth taking them out.

Dunno; the two youtube posts with de-baffled cobras had a fantastic sound at idle; but pretty loud. Haven't heard one at speed, but was afraid they'd be real window-breakers. I also find the baffled cobra's just a little quieter than I'd like, but thought they'd be way too loud with baffles. Guess I"ll have to hear a set IRL before I'll know; reluctant to pull the baffles before I do.

I wonder how the baffled viper-2's compare to baffled/unbaffled cobra's?

Just an FYI.... if you pull the baffles out of the Cobras it voids the life time warantee.

Hey 460, what were your final F1200 settings? with your Cobra swepts.

How hard is it too pull the baffles out? Just put my cobra's on Friday! Love em! Would like them a little louder though! Is it just a screw that holds the baffles in? Is it easy to take them out and put them pack in or is it if you pull them out they are out for good! Thanx in advance!:D

pull the screw out,bend a 90 on a peice of i/4 inch round stock.clamp a pair of vicegrips about 10 inches from the bend,hook the bend inside the baff and tap grips with a hammer.takes about 20 minuts.you do not have to pull the pipes.

My top pipe baffle came out from the rear with a hook type spring puller, not bad. The lower pipe baffle was in there tight. I removed the lower pipe heat sheild, pulled the front head pipe loose, keeping the rear pipe in place. then took a 10 " 1/2" breaker bar or 10" 1/2" extension and beat it out. took about 30 minutes tops
