Pay It Fwd..P1 Power Tip 2 Bros Exhaust
« on: October 04, 2012, 03:18:59 pm »
When I ordered my Two Bros Exhaust for my 2010 Connie the company accidently sent me (2) P1 Power Tips. I believe these decrease the decibles around 3-5 I think? Anyway they will cost you $30+ to order a NEW one. If you have a Two Bros Exhaust on your bike and would like to make it a ltl quieter for whatever the reason since I got it FREE it's FREE to you. First one who ask for it .....I will ship within a couple of days or when I can get to the POffice. I'm not going to make a big deal out of the postage but if you want to repay me for it I will GLADLY accept it.

Regards

I sent you a PM with my last name.  Hopefully i get the chance to thank you in person some day.  It will be the first part that I have put on personally since buying it used, and the excitement already has me wanting to add more.   >:D

Phil, is it noticeably quieter with the insert? I have the 2brothers carbon fiber muffler and its loud, I would change it but it looks so darn good...

Don't be concerned about the looks U can't even see the powerTip unless you look inside the muffler. YES it does take some of the bark off but not enough that it sounds like a VESPA! Very pleased with mine!

Andrew I need to drop back and punt so to speak. I just went to UPS and they want $20.88 just N postage and that is Waaaaaaaaaay too much N my opinion. After lunch I will take to the USPOffice and see if we can't get that much much lower. May result N a lit longer wait but I will be careful how I spend other folks's $$$$

later

Sounds good to me Phil.  I'm in no rush.  I think USPS has flat rate shipping boxes if i remember right.

Andrew I think you will like this much better!
Assuming I did our postage machine correctly I'll double check at PO. It only came to $2.29. If that's correct it's really not going to be worth the time for you to even mail it back. Just look at it as an early XMas present........

Not to take anything away from Two Bros actually I purchased the exhaust through:

http://www.motorcyclegear.com/

They are the one's that allowed me to keep the extra PowerTip vs having to mail it back! Excellent folks to deal with ask for Nate...

After installing ZX 14 Two Brothers duals I was ready to sell because they were too loud , others on the forum said to try the power tips , Very happy I did , I installed the P 3 which is the smallest reducer they make and it is very quiet now,the P 3  might be small if you only have one muffler, but if you like quiet they work.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

I'm getting ready to order a Two Bros Black series Carbon fiber for my 2011.  I think I will order both the P1X and the P1 tips.  I'll use the P1X for every day and long rides, and when I want to take the bags off and do some fast twisty running, I'll put the P1 tip on for some extra badass effect.

your going to LOVE these pipes! HINT for you.....N the instructions it says remove rubber stop (centerstand) and replace on new pipe. Well that sounds easy but it is not unless you know the SECRET? (Which I did not I tried using WD-40) Use Dishwashing liquid to git that sucker through the small hole I fought with it for probably 20min or so U will see what I mean! I wrote to Two Bros. and suggested they add that to their instructions as not everyone is a trained mechanic as I am certainly not! I bet you will end up with the P1 tip N all the time it's just right! Still a NICE bark for around town but with my helmet and earplugs I don't even hear it on longer trips! Just to save you some $$ (this was my plan) order the P1 and try it around town and on trips then if your not happy with it order the P1X there very easy to trade out!

I finally took the time to install the P1 tip yesterday and I thoroughly enjoy it.  Thank you very much Phil.  I also took your advice and ponied up for the COG Membership. 

Once again thank you, I hope to someday be able to buy you a beer or 3 as payment.  :beerchug:

Andrew glad to hear it arrived and your enjoying it!
VERY GLAD U joined. Actually it was S. Smith that came up with the idea I just seconded it....
Just finished up a quick 600 or so mile trip with the NEW exhaust. It is just SWEET not much else I can add.
