HI New Roadliner

Hi i just purchased a 08 roadliner midnight 5000 miles and its loaded with accessories which i probably will be selling some of the stuff.I have been riding for 20+ years and I have been a Gen 1 vmax owner for 10+ years and a member of the VMOA and love the vmax my current v max is a custom and powered by a PCW 1500cc motor and i myself have been bitten bad by the Mod Monkey with this bike. I will say this that the roadliner will be blacked out so any advice on exhaust i will say i am looking hard at the black Hard Krome Res-Tec 3. Thanks JIM from Pa

Unfortunately, no advice will be offered to newbies that haven't read the rule book. The most important rule is that newbs will post a pic of their
ride(s); you can read the other rules later .

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you'll get lots of good info about what you want to do with the roady, cheers.

Welcome and don't worry too much about the picture nazi's, if you stick around i'm sure you'll eventually get motivated to let us see a pic of your ride(s)

you don't have to just find black pipes. you can get chrome pipes and get them coated in black ceramic by either a bike shop or a lot of places that do powdercoating

How does that work for heat? If I just powder coat with black ceramic, do I then wrap or are they just like my chrom ones cause I'm thinking I'll have to remove heat shield.. thanks

Just like the chrome process each piece is treated as an idividual. It would basically be braking down your chrome exhaust to individual pieces then taking all the pieces thru the powdercoating process. I'm sure you could powdercoat the heat shields too and then reassemble as per your liking
