that is a good?
will it help, probably.
if it were a car/truck, i could give some advise but on a mc, do not know if it would apply.
on the above, we would apply paint to the exh pipes and run the vehicle down the road and this would burn the paint in a certain area and this is where we would place the balance pipe.

two options here, follow the stock with cross-over by the jugs or hidden down by the lower rail, at least you know hd did r&r on the placement. OR, install a 2>1 exh, i run the danmoto highwayman.

BSA introduced the cross-over pipe way back and every twin still uses something similar, to boost low/mid range torque, to this day. So they are a worthwhile feature, however I also agree with bustert - simply use a 'proper' 2-into-1 for best results. My choice is a SuperTrapp - they make them for big twins and Sporties.
