Yup, D&D, loud as hell w/decent build quality. Generally regarded as one of the loudest pipes. They sound good to me. You can buy 'em regularly for that price though. It's about as cheap as they get for a new set.

My buddy springbubba has them on his hawk, they are loud but I like the sound of them. They have a good tone IMO. If loud bothers you though then these are not the pipes for you.

I think I will like loud. All I've done so far is drilled 3 holes (about 1/8") in my stock cans, they are really, really quiet.

Give the full bafflectomy a try. I waited a long time before doing it. I was afraid I wouldn't like the sound. It's easy and sounds great. Trust me it's a HUGE improvement and best of all it's free. Worst case you buy the D&D's.

I don't know if you care about weight, but they will probably be about 10 lbs lighter than de-baffled stockers, and then you have the bling and a better sound.

I had a set of d&d slip-ons on my last superhawk and they are Loud they have a nice tone but I would constantly get my buddy on his harley pulled over for loud pipes (when it was actually my bike) they are pretty well made I know after putting my bike down twice they got scuffed up but never broke or anything.

not hard, but takes a little patience. I believe if you look on www.superhawk.net you'll find the answer you need. I did mine in stages to make sure it didn't end up louder than I wanted. I ended up with what I call a partial bafflectomy, meaning I removed the stainless ring that holds the center of the pipe in and then removed the pipe sticking out of the middle. I left the other two baffles inside the pipe-you can look inside and see them. Sounds healthy but i always wear earplugs no matter how quiet or loud the bike.

There's welds holding the baffle on the inside, so you have to beat it out or do like i did and keep moving it up and down until it left go.

I think D&D's are pretty nice pipes, and are well made. They're on the louder end of the scale. You just have to keep the chrome midpipes, inlets and endcaps clean or they'll eventually start to rust.

Do the bafflectomy like nath said, in stages. That way you get the sound you want. I've done a few and eventually went as far as nath said, plus I bought a super long drill bit and drilled a bunch of holes into the next baffle in as well. If you want a noise level similar to an aftermarket set of pipes that'll do it. Like he said you should be wearing earplugs anyway-you won't fatigue as fast and you'll also save your hearing. They cancel all the wind noise out and you just get the lovely sound of the exhaust on a much lower volume. Only took me a ride or two to get used to wearing them.

One other point, be careful if you start beating on anything inside the pipe to get anything loose as you can dent the outer skin of the can if you're not careful.
