    I’d suss the kuryakan Mavericks. Or Magna flow short 2-2. Less expensive and a better sound.

    Pros:
    They look good

    Cons:
    They are really shit for street performance
    Their loudness will attract the wrong kind of attention

    if you like making your bike slower and pissing off everyone within 5km radius then go for it.

    With Short Shots the pipes end right at ear level, you will very quickly grow to hate the loudness - especially on a long run (even with earplugs). Save your hearing & get quieter pipes.

    I just swapped my short shots for bassani sweepers, better pipe, broke the bank, they’re still loud but loudness wasn’t my problem more popping and that hollow note you get from short shots . Much prefer the bassanis they have a deeper note being a longer pipe

    Bassani and D&D new somewhere around 1600-1700 so probably a little to much but you can get a TBR new for around 1300-1350

    Side shots can be tuned not to pop bad, most pipes of the style can, in fact I ain't found one that was impossible, that said, the biggest drama is they don't have enough internal volume for performance, even so some cunts have short shots on decent number producing builds, in truth many of them would still performed with water pipe bolted to the heads, if it's the look you are after then fine, go with it, better options about though.

    I’m really pushing it to make 1200 Damo, I was more hoping to spend about 1000. I have an “old school” theme going on with my bike which I want to continue when it comes to pipes..

    Yeah 100% it can be tuned out, I wanted new pipes anyway, which helped with popping still does high revs dropping gears, I’m hoping to tune it in the near future. 
    For $1000 your not getting much, hold tight and wait for a second hand one maybe

    Ah yep yep, I understand that for sure. I did have short shots on mine for around 2 years, I liked them whilst they were on there but my performance upgrades were screaming for a 2into1. I had quiet baffles in mine which really only make it a little deeper not much quieter but with a decent tune in it I had no popping and unless you ride it like a tool you don't really get much extra attention from the fuzz

    Chuck good slip ons on those header man and you will have a great sound, and without big bucks unbeatable performance, I kid you not.
