Mauled Mean Streak

Discussion in 'Cruisers' started by theiceman, May 1, 2009.

  1. G'day all, I'm a huge fan of the mean streak, especially '07 and hope to be owner of same if enough whining and crawling to spouse pays off. I know its a personal choice but why do people keep putting chrome pipes on em? Can't ya get a good sounding pipe in black?

  2. Pretty sure the special edition has black pipes so they are available.

    And it does make it look mean.
  3. Yeah black pipes are standard but sound crap. Aren't there any hot soundin' black pipes, or do people prefer the chrome look?
  4. I'd love to trade my giant chrome monstrosities for something simple in a matte black.
    It's money that stops me.
  5. Not being flippant but is it the dough that stops people doin the matt black. If so, how much does it cost?
  6. Honestly, any money is too much, if it had been a factory option I would have got it.
    Some vague pricing I've looked at is about 400$US for some pipes + ~ 100$US to ship, assuming I fit them myself.
    Then there's tuning to consider, so probably a K&N + EFI chip + dyno.
    All in all, I don't think it's worth it.
    I bought my bike to ride, not to show. :)
