I am in the market for a exhaust for my 96 fatboy with the 80" motor. I am wanting to do either the v&h shortshots, or the hooker shorts slash cut. I found a smoking deal on the hooker shorts, 190 shipped, but they are for 86-06 softails 96" up motors. When I contacted the seller of them, they told me that these pipes will work for my bike even tho they say for 96+. Any ideas or opinions on this? Will they work or are they just trying to make a sale. Thanks in advance guys.
