I've been looking all over, but can't seem to find where I can buy a set for our bikes, or even locate a part number.

Also, what is the difference between the 3" Big Straights and the Res-Tech 3"?

Any help or leads would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

There are others that likely know more than me, but I will tell you what I found when looking for these a couple months ago. I don't believe HK is making them anymore for our bike. I was lucky enough to find a set on ebay that were on clearance just because the shop wanted them out. Part # for mine was 47b-6050, I think. I have the black Res Tec set. Photos in my album.

Big Straights and Res Tec look essentially the same but the Res Tec were made to quiet them down a bit. Not sure if it is a baffle but I know that was the intention. I LOVE them. Great sound and not as loud as I expected, based on old threads I read. Still plenty louder than stock, especially in 4th and 5th.

Keep your eyes open on ebay, hopefully you will find them Good luck!

Deep, Check these out ................ Hard Krome make a great looking 4" Sideburner for the 2005-2012 C50!

I've seen, and heard these on a C50 here in the city.

Unfortunately no one in Canada carries them, and we have to order direct from Hard Krome in California. (Exclusive Distrubutor)

Suzuki C50 2005-12 Motorcycle Exhaust | Hard-Krome

Maybe we can do a deal on 3 or 4 sets? (I'd be interested ONLY if the price was better than $700.00 US! The current exchange rate SUCKS, plus we would have shipping AND Duty!) You, me, George (??)

They sounded great! Just not in my budget right now! (Pipes, Fuel Processor, Air Intake)

The issue is, that I don't like the look of any other exhaust system on this bike, other than the 3" straights.

I'm gonna keep looking, and hopefully find something. Not in a rush either.

That's a good idea, I will do that on Monday.

I was looking online, and found that Oneida Suzuki shows the HARD KROME 3 Inch Big Straights Boulevard for VL800/C50/M50 2001-08-#45-6830B listed for $589.99 but before I order online, I will probably give them a call as well.

It looks like Oneida might have them, BUT, in "Black" ONLY. Looks like the "Chrome" are "sold out" for the C50.

VL800/C50/M50 ALL YEARS CHROME 1810-0889 sold out
VL800/C50/M50 ALL YEARS BLACK 1810-1007

C90 2005-08 CHROME 1810-0890
C90 2005-08 BLACK 1810-1008 sold out

M109R 2006-08 CHROME 1810-0996
M109R 2006-08 BLACK 1810-1067

I'd take a pair if they had them in Chrome for my 2010 C50

In a 3 inch chromed pipe, You can still get these.
Less length than 3" Big Straights, but still a decent pipe.
Of course, one could always have those black Big Straights chromed, or nickel plated.

I think it's the "longer" length he's after. I know I like them when they are longer, and right out to the end of the fender.

You can't even seem to get the V&H "Long Shots" anymore either. Short Shot's, Yes, Long Shots, No.

I did see that ^ page, which is for the Res-Tec, but I was looking at this page, which is for the HARD KROME 3 Inch Big Straights Boulevard and show available...

Will definitely have to call them tomorrow and see what they have!

10-64 is correct! I like the longer length all the way to the end of the fender look!

That is correct! Thanks! Hopefully I can get some good news on Monday!

If I had the cash I'd order a set to split shipping charges with you!

I do love the look of these as well. My main concern is that will thay pass the "noise bylaw" and stay below 92db at 2000rpm?

Anyone have any contact info for Hard Krome or Oneida Suzuki?

For both I was only able to fill out a contact form and wait for a reply, which I obviously have not received yet...

Thanks

Oneida Suzuki is located at 434 Lenox Ave Rt 365A, Oneida, NY.

Deep, We should ride there some day this summer. It's only 4 1/2 hours away, just the "other side" of Syracuse, NY
