Listen to the SOUND >> click here to listen to exhaust!!
Gold Wing Performance Exhaust from Wingstuff.com & Torqmaster These sound great and Optional Quiet Baffles easily install in minutes whenever you want them quite such as long trips, ect.. Torq Master Power Mufflers also give your bike a nice tuned sound but are not overly loud. All Torq Master Pipes are built using a DYNO JET 150 dynamometer to insure a Torque & Horsepower gain in addition to a little more sound. Direct replacement part for the stock Gold Wing GL1800 stock mufflers.
First I ordered my pipes and loopz on a Saturday night. Monday I check the web and found that the quiet baffles are now being included free. I call and use my best please please and they agree to ship me out the quiet baffles free. Thanks Wing Stuff!
The install took me at least 7 hours because I measured that 1 5/8"inch cut a dozen times. haha.
Aligning them so they stuck out even at the back took me a half hour of repositioning but I got it. I am average mechanically...
As everyone says Jimmy is excellent in his help. I got them on and went for a good ride. The baffles were vibrating kinda like a snare drum sound when I let off the gas. Jimmy offered to send me a new set immediately, but I discussed a fix and will be doing that tonight. Basically I am pulling out the rivet holding in the baffles and bending out the lip around the outer edge to make it wedge into the pipe more.
Now about the sound. It is deeper and much more 'musical' than in the recording. I loved the muscle car sound cruising at about 3,000rpm. We'll see if it becomes a drone after my 1k trip in 2 weeks. But the sound is more than I hoped for both at idle and cruising down the road. As a reference I had a Kawasaki Nomad with V&H pipes and didn't mind the noise cruising so I may not be a good one to listen to about noise.
I'll wait and report again if mine rust. I used a high temp exhaust paint to coat the Loopz entirely and the welds on the pipes because of the other reviews noting rust.
I also ordered these pipes along with the the torque loops, sound was ok, i was expecting more growl, but definitely more pickup...This is the 2nd year i have them and they are pitting already, not a good quality of chrome at all and warranty is only good for 1yr :-( good chrome is not suppose to deteriorate that fast...very unhappy....
Though I love the style and sound, I can't recommend this product. After two years they are pitted so bad, its an embarrassment to have them on my bike. Going back to the stock units that I had on the bike for the previous 6 years that still have no blemishes at all.
Its a shame as the folks at TorgMaster are really nice to deal with and that makes this review very hard to pen.
The purest of the WingRiders maynot be able to cross this line and I fully understand, but if that little boy or girl inside of you still yearns for that vroom-vroom sound then this is the product for you.
With every product that I buy I use what I call the CAP system - Cost-Apperance-Performance. We buy the ultimate motorcycle to start with so understand up front that anything else cost to much. With this cost perspective in mind these are cheaper than most pipes that you can put on your bike.
From the side of the bike the appearance is no different than the stock pipes. If you know what your looking at the stock exhaust tip is oval versus these being round.
I read all of the other reviews on performance and I have to agree with the folks that say there is no noticeable difference.
The installation of these pipes are as easy as it gets, 40 minutes tops both sides, clean-up and riding.
A friend showed up and a I play this music for him and he order them that same day.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
