Q. I Am Interested In Ordering A Set Of Hard-Krome Pipes. Is There Anything I Should Order With These Pipes?
A. There are two things we recommend along with a set of Hard-Krome pipes. For the Carbureted models-The first thing we recommend is to have the bikes jetting recalibrated. For the Fuel Injected bikes- We recommend the addition of a PowerCommander. The other thing we recommend with a complete set of Hard-Krome pipes is to replace the crush gaskets. These gaskets are a 1-time gasket similar to a spark plug washer that can be purchased through your local dealer. The crush gaskets do NOT come with the exhaust. They insure that the cylinder head/ pipe junction has an airtight seal.

Q. I Am Interested In Ordering A Full Set Of Hard-Krome Pipes. Do I Need To Re-Jet My Motorcycle In Accordance?
A. If your bike is carbureted we recommend the Dynojet Stage 1 jet kit for our pipe applications. The bike could run lean otherwise and you could experience a pop on deceleration. The jet kit can be purchased through your local dealer. If your bike has Fuel Injected, we recommend the Dynojet PowerCommander. The PowerCommander will alter your air/fuel mixture. Your stock F.I. can compensate for only a small spectrum, NOT enough for an aftermarket exhaust. The Power Commander can alter that stock map and can be re-programmed for modifications installed at a later time. For more information on Dynojet, visit their website at www.dynojet.com

Q. I Have Installed A Complete Set Of Hard-Krome Pipes To My Motorcycle. On Deceleration The Bike Pops, How Can I Fix This?
A. A pop is usually in indication of one of two instances. The most common is that the bike has not been jetted, or was jetted incorrectly. The other instance is a crush gasket at the head. This is one part we do not supply, it is an OEM part. This crush gasket is a one-time crush, similar to a spark plug seal. We recommend replacing this gasket when installing new pipes. There is a chance an air leak at the head/ exhaust junction can lead to the popping. The crush gasket is an OEM part and available through your local dealer. We do not offer this part.
