Installed... Note these are a hell of alot harder to install than the factory ones. Maybe it was just my set but the factory bolts with washers were binding inside the holes machined for them... Needless to say I got them in but its tough when you don't know if the bolt is tight because of the fit or if its cross threaded in the housing. And make sure you use locktite in the future because they don't have the "safety" clip to hold the bolts in like the factory ones. They seemed quite heavy also. I wonder how light the graves ones are?

Incase anyone was wondering heres what the Black anodized Factory Pro Velocity Stacks for the 04-05 R1 look like. Sorry for poor pic quality... it was crappy day and poor lighting.
are those from factory pro anodized black or did you do that your self. I have the factory pro stacks installed and to me thier were easy.

They were anodized from factory pro themself.... I called and at the time that was the only set they had available. The part that the bolts were binding with was the bare alluminum bracket. The anodized tubes fit nice but the bolts were tight turning in the bracket without even attaching it to anything. It's very possible it was just my set.

LOL why not blue or green to match the water, or red if you have water wetter? No seriously i know you can't see them but thats what you get if you order from factory pro and say you want black anodized... no extra cost

I'm going to get mine custom airbrushed with an awesome dragon
I might send mine to Paul Jr for some cool theme oriented customization. He could probably weld some awesome bar stock crap on it. That'd be cool!
