    I put 2" over fork tubes on my Wideglide and fixed the scraping problem...maybe a standard set of Wideglide tubes would improve the scraping on the Bob as they are longer..
    Quoting Wideglider on 28 Feb 2019 07:22 PM
    Never had any probs before with scraping on the Wideglide so hoping these pipes I've ordered will be ok.
    If I have to go a further 2" over on the fork tubes that's ok - think that would would look cool anyway.

    Pipes arrived today (Bassini Road Rage 2 chrome), fitting will happen Monday. Dyno tune not long after that - happy days!
    are you getting the Dyno done before and after to compare??

    Just will use dyno after fitting exhaust system. 
    Local dealer doesn't have dyno so I have to ride about an hour to another dealer that has. I'm pretty sure there will be a fair performance difference evident in riding.
    Besides that - costs start adding up.

    I have a sheet somewhere, but typical SE110 mountain of torque at low rpm signing off at 5k.

    made 95hp 114ft lb, good enough for a high 11s pass at 108mph.

    made 95hp 114ft lb, good enough for a high 11s pass at 108mph.

    Like to see that sheet Brash, 2 into 1's often give poor torque.
    If the Bassani maintains it they'd be good for my 110.

    As you mentioned the 255 cam gets breathless, I'm thinking of going to an SE585 with 4 degree advance key to hold the bottom end but extend the rev range.

    Hope you can post that sheet, Cheers

    Not yet mate....only just fitted and brief scoot....From all I’ve heard it will probably scrape the heat shields.....
    Not really a biggie cause the V&H long shots used to scrape as well

    Hey Benno, got nice performance increase, quieter especially at idle. A lower exhaust note & a cool rumble upon deacceleration. Oh....and no scraping.

    Shocks are Ikon, an inch shorter than stock (brings the tyre up into the guard nicely).
    I enquired from Basani before my purchase about shock clearance, their reply below...
    The Bassani system 1D32R system is made a little shorter overall, in order to clear the Shock bolt on the swingarm end. With the taller shock the shock bolt would most likely hit the pipe as the travel is extended.

    I should add that rear bracket would not bolt up due to master cylinder being in way, had to fit rounded-type MC (my original was the square type). This all despite the assurances from Bassani Aust distributor that the pipe would fit my old bike ('96WG). No other bracket available.  Anyway, got there in the end and impressed with performance gain & the note.
