Awesome Stingray! I've seen a few of you guys with stingrays flip the tensioner around so the chain goes under the frame rather than over. Does this reduce vibes or pull from the rear sprocket or what? It seems like an interesting setup. I bought my long chopper pipe from LiveFast off of ebay and I think it looks really good (not as good as the one you have) and if anything its MUCH more quiet than the stock pipe. It could possibly be because the exhaust exits behind rather than under you but its baffled so it would be much more quiet than what you have currently. Oh yeah, if you dont have any I'd suggest some scooter tensioners that hook around the axle and let you get both chains nice and tight as well as centering the wheel properly with those straight back dropouts. They look like a bolt with a ring on the end with a bracket and nut.
Poor illustration:

thanks norman, ill have to check, i am going to show this to my dad he knows more about exhausts than me. oh and thanks sir jake my dad used to work in a bike shop and he has 2 harleys, so i didnt have any probs with the alignment or tightness, the pedal chain hangs a bit but its still stiff because i have the back end tightened pretty tight there fore it soesnt pedal back as much if u can understand that im not good explainin stuff. oh and as for the tensioner it hit everything upright and the pipe all the way down so i flattened it out to reduce twisting and added some screws in the frame so it wont move (i use my tap set to its fullest lol oh, im adding more pics of how i mounted the tank (with double sided tape and drilled holes in da frame.) i think ill check out that pipe sounds cool p.s. the vid is up www.youtube.com/eltatertoto

spookytooth (at at the top/left side of the page)
livefast motors (e-bay)
I think you could quiet it up a lot by stuffing it with steel wool,
drilling two cross holes for bolts in front of slash cut to keep the wool in
MUST be steel wool, and it will get saturated so it might need to be changed/cleaned periodically
