The Velvet Black ceramic finish on your pipes is the most durable exhaust finish available on the market today. The ceramic finish does not set-up/final cure until you have run the bike at temperature. The pipes, when shipped are considered green or soft. This reduces and handling issues during shipping and installation. Once the exhaust has reached temperature they will set-up to a hard durable finish.I nicked the edge when installing them on the bike with the swivle socket. There is also a nic at the very end that i am noit sure if it came in that way or not. Either way i would like to know the best way to handle this as i live in New England and the sand that is put down during the winter is not all cleaned up until summer ( Way tooooo long to wait to ride). I believe it will happen in the future with the tiny rocks that get kicked up. I really like the exhaust and want to make sure it last for quite a while.
Good for you. The sound is great. I like my Viper 2 pipes and the Fuggin controller. The FC has (on mine) stock settings except Mode 1 which I -.5. Runs great. Have fun.I did it! I and my wife worked till 11 PM tonight but we've installed Viper-2 pipes and Fuggin EFI Fuel Controller. Kelly from Fuggin promised to send me pictures, but I couldn't wait and I did it with my own hands. I had to go to dealership for gaskets and then a couple times to Home Depot for tools and flash lights. And now my bike sounds so good! I didn't want to wait until tomorrow morning and took my girl to the bar. She loved sound and look too. But not neighbors.
