I just did a low mount exhaust and i have these pipes. I freaking love them and how they sounded but the low mount is for me. I'm not sure exactly how long these have been on this bike but I've owned it for 3500 miles. there is nothing wrong with them other than a wrinkle in the coating as seen in the one pic. I dont think its rust considering its stainless. the taped area you see on the end of one of the mufflers is the bolts and spacers to mount them on your bike.
last time i checked these were 600 new. actually after searching for them online im not even sure they still make these.
Header pipes were no where close to alingment with the engine. Had to use a auto body dent puller to bend it into proper alignment. I thought the welds were going to pop. It was really out of spec. Probably took it out of the welding jig before the welds cooled down, and when they did, it contracted the outboard pipes significantly in relation to the inboard pipes.
