    Hello All......As earlier noted I was the lucky S.O.B. who was selected by artek at brasscycleworks.com to recieve a set of brass exhaust tips! Having never won anything I was genuinely surprised. Arthur made it super simple requesting I.D. and O.D. measurement of my exhaust pipes and shipping address. A couple of days later he emailed me the shipping number. A couple days go by and BAM! they are the post office. Took them out of the carefully wrapped package and they are AWESOME! surprisingly heavy and impeccably machined. Race home and immediately pulled the pipes off and got to work. The hardest part was unwrapping my heat wrap tape.....hate that, but looks great and it protects. I had to file off the very tips of the exhaust pipes due to my pipes haivng a slight turn-out....I trial fitted and they fit perfectly! The instructions that were provided are clear and completely understandable......unlike Ikea! Drilled a small hole, trial fit the tip and marked a spot on the tip and drilled through, used a small file to debur, re-set set brass tip and placed bolt with small amount of loc tite on the nut. Presto Change-o.....my pipes are transformed from kinda cool pipes to.....SHUT THE FRONT DOOR, DOPE ASS PIPES! Artek.....again my genuine, heartfelt thanks, your product is everything and more and really help to define and further personalize my bike. WRMDOVR
