Rinehart 4" blacks bad right out of the box

Jumped on EP's Rinehart sale the other day. My pipes just arrived today as I was about ready to install them I noticed some imperfections. There are a few small nicks in the coating, some scratches around one of the baffle screws and what appears to be rust between the end cap and the pipe. Not a happy camper. Gonna call EP tomorrow and have these RMA'ed. Don't know if I wanna chance a second set either.

yeah I was hoping you would see this. Curious to see if yours are bad too. For the price I am almost tempted to say eff it and keep them. But who knows if the rust will spread.

Ok though I hope I am not right these might be seconds or blems but not advertised as such. I was just looking around the EP site and they have a second listing for the same pipes at regular price.

I was wondering about multiple prices too.

I said F*** It and ended up going with a full system from FuelMoto

I hope it works out for ya..

mine should be here today.

bottom line is they are not advertised as blems, I would expect either EP or RH to replace them. Did you contact EP?

That sucks, I guess maybe that's why they had such a good price.

2010 FLTRX, Custom paint, 107 CI, TS Bags, CM Fury 21" Wheel, too many other extra's to list.
