Default 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.

I saw your post and went to the site and almost went for it but decided to stick with all Fuel Moto exhaust. Hope you get it all straightened out.

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.
