Yes sir. Got 'em on my 1100 & i am very happy with them. On the 1100 the pipes eliminate the rear exhaust manifold which requires resizing the jets to the same size as the front cylinder. That manifold restricts flo, so in stock configuration the rear carb is jetted smaller than the front carb. I found that aftermarket jet kits contain a set of jets for front carb and a set for rear carb. I could not find identicle sets to make both carbs match. I took the smallest two jets and drilled them out (with a jewelers drill bit set).
That said, the pipes give a nice rumble you normally only hear at the race track :D No heat shields so i put some wrap on to stop burning my leg. PCS offered 3 different baffles. I picked the 'middle' one. Not extremelly loud, but loud enough to be heard by those in my 'zone of concern' on the highway.
Note: mine came with installation directions that specify a process of 'tighten bolts-run engine-retighten-etc....etc..', i recomend following that procedure. I did not the first time and it cost me a set of exhaust gaskets. Second time i followed directions and i am still happy to this day. Hope my babbling helped. Good luck.
