Well I can say waiting 1 year for a pipe is pretty much nuts but hey the amount of saddle time I get, Don't really matter.

The White Brothers E2 (96db Compliant) :cry: Exhaust is shipping for 400's and 426's 1998 - 2002 models

Install was a snap, had to remove thew entire Pro-Meg R4 including Fat Boy header and put the stock OEM header back on. No worries.

The Pipe is clean Will made and sturdy
took me about 20 minutes start to finish to install the pipe, fit like a glove.

How does it run
Don't know yet, I rode it up and down the street, sounds allot quieter then the R4 for sure.

Noticeable power traits
What can you really tell going down the street and back :cry:
It is quieter for sure
I am going to Gorman next Friday, Maybe to Hollister tomorrow to meet OHVRider not sure yet, will followup with a ride report. I am going to try the Race core and the 96 core so stay tuned if your interested

Here are some pics with it undressed

The can sure sticks out :cry:

I'm glad to see it's not black. All the advertisements show them in black. Looks sharp!!

Hey John, I like your tank graphics. Pretty snazzy! What are they and where can you git em?

They are made by enjoy graphics, but the company has since gone out of buisness or is a poor buisness

You can however pick them up from Ebay from the guy whi made them. I would not recomend doing so, people have had a time getting the prodcut from them.

Ebay Link Be warned :cry:

Any particular reason for holding out for the WB Q? The FMF Q (the 96 db version) has been out for soemtime and works great. Good low end torque.

I dont like FMF, No offence but I simply do not like the quality nor have I heard good reports "I LIKED" in regards to performance with the Q or the E
