I just got done installing my new true duals this morning. I got the chrome tip version. They look great much nicer then to OE pipes. As for the sound. It is the best sounding exhaust I've ever heard. Nice mellow rumble at idle and cruise. When you hit the throttle WOW is all I can say. The sound is amazing. Fit and finish were very good. The only thing I don't like is that the left pipe is in the way of the kick Stand. So it is really tricky to find it with my heal it put down. I hope I can get used to it but if not I might try a kick stand extention. If your thinking about them stop thinking and start ordering. In my humble opinion it is the best exhaust currently available for cross bikes.
