Well I just got off the phone with them. They said my HMF Utility pipe was 2 weeks out. This was after I was told Saturday that I would have it today. The gentleman told me that I was told this on Saturday, but That is not true. I could not understand why when they sent me the wrong pipe to begin with, why they could do nothing to help me.

So I said, whet do I need to do to get my money back. (The pipe came w/ free jets and a Unifilter) He said I would have to pay for the Jets, and filter and he could refund the rest. I explained to him that I just spent $100 to have the bike jetted to the wrong pipe and now he wanted me to take it back and have them take the jet back out. He said he would have to charge me for the jets because he could not return used jets. So now I have to go somewhere else. (Highlifter has them in stock, but its an extra $50 I have to spend now) In addition I have to package up these four stupid jets and ship them to West Virginia. All over their mistake. He did even seem to care that I told him my bike was going to have to sit in the garage for another week with out a pipe and unusable. Once again its all over their mistake.!!! And he is cryign to me over not accepting a used $2 jet that I spent $100 to get installedand now have to take out.
WHAT A LOAD OF _____!!!

Stay away from Leeson's Import Motors in West Virginia.

Thank you for listening to my rant.
Now I have to wait another week to get my pipe from Highlifter and spend more money to boot.

If you didn't know they mis-shipped a HMF QS1 first. Then they sold their last Utility pipe they had instock the next day. So thats why I have the issues. Originally it was an honest mistake.

Its Not exactly their fault, oh wait it is their fault. Thats really not what bothers me, it the fact they seem to be indifferent and don't care and I am the one doing without now. Then they want to hassle me about a stupid jet.

GRRRRRRRRRRR!

What a pain in the arse!! So they get a hundred bucks to jet a bike? Did they do some kind of tuning? How did they tune it if so? Or do they jet accorinding to the pipe manufactors suggestion?

It was to specs, pretty much. I think they messed with the mixture screw a bit for Dynojets specs. I didn't mind the money because it was done right and I did not have to check and recheck at all. Its set right.

I did even consider the warranty. I'm not worried about the jet effecting anything. I'd be more worried aboutingesting water.

As for improvments, better throttle reponse and its a little snappier off idle. +1.5 HP per Dynojet.

Well of all places to find a pipe, I ended up calling Service Honda this morning. Their HMF Utility pipes are $170, thats the cheapest I have seen, by far. Hopefully this time it will be here Wednesday, I paid a little extra for 2nd day shipping. Keep your fingers crossed fo rme.

I didn't think they would have them let alone that cheap. I looked on their website under aftermarket parts and found it. They just use Tucker Rocky ATV catalog. It listed for $209, but when they told me that price on the phone I jumped on it.

So how did you score that pipe so cheap - I just called them and they told me $224, and man it was tough finding it on there website to give them the part number.

WTF--- Am I cursed or what? This is not meant to be... FedEx showed up to my door today, hooray. Openned te box and gues what, It was a stock Rubicon exhaust. I just don't get it. I went over it 3 times with the salesman at Service Honda and it is still wrong. So now I have to send this one back. I guess that is why it was so cheap. You should have seen the steam coming out of my ears when I cut the box open.

Well I am going to have my pipe this weekend one way or another. I called Highlifter and they are overnighting me one. Should be here by 10am Thursday. The shipping is killing me, but after 3 weeks of waiting I am over it....

This is incredible.
