Re: unequal exhaust pressure

To be expected with the rear having more bends, aka more restriction. Does it matter, not really for a street cruiser.

Re: Panhead 18" rim offset

If you just loosen and tighten evenly it should be fine. Ditto on rims not perfect and having hiccups in them. So a simple pointer will serve you fine, a dial indicator will drive you crazy...

Re: Panhead 18" rim offset
