Anybody bought a Rush exhaust system recently?
Found a few places in US - wondering if anyone’s had good/bad experiences with any dealers?
Any equivalent to Rush available here in Oz?

If you haven’t read it already, I can offer you my review but I don’t know anyone stocking them locally.

I bought my set from Westend Motorsports in USA.

I have to support V's review. I followed his advice and for a set myself, great sounding pipes.

can anyone confirm the part number for a 2018 Chieftain?

I have been able to find out it's a different fitment to the Chiefs and Springfields. The two part numbers I've found for Indians are 45005 and 45015 however according to a few fitment guides neither fit a 2018 Chieftain.

I've written to Rush Racing but they haven't replied. 

Current 2018 Chieftain

Past 2016 Scout

Future I'm thinking old School 40s Chief.

Hey Sean,

I ride Chief Vintage so I cannot be 100% sure but both the product numbers you have quoted appears to fit a Chieftain.   According to the Westend Motorsports website, 45005 is chrome and 45015 is black.

In terms of 2018 Chieftain... again, as far as I know, 2014 to 2018 Chieftains should be the same.  Exhaust with a support bracket for the hard cases.  

When I contacted Rush Racing before I bought my set, they did reply, so hopefully they will get back to you as well.

One other thing Sean.  Try to buy the product ending in xxxxxPKG as that includes the baffles and tips. It works out cheaper than buying pipes, baffles and tips seperately.

NB: If anyone wants to buy from Westend Motorsports - Delivery Charges are not free (as indicated by their website).  I paid USD$150 back in 2015.  As their FAQ will tell you, once you checkout, their sales people will contact you with the exact shipping cost for your approval.

With the exchange rate at $0.72, if the shipping cost (by USPS) has not changed, the Rush Warhorse will cost USD$660 + USD$150 = USD$810 (January 2019).  That's about AUD$1,126.  If anyone orders from Westend, please let us know what they charge for shipping these days.

Sorry mate I've written down the wrong number, it's 105 not 015. 

I did get an email from Rush this morning, they think it's a case of bad fitment guides.

😳 USD$531 for Rush pipes!?  What a great deal.  And the shipping cost is quoted as USD$64!  That's USD$595 or AUD$827 landed in Oz.  Great find!

yep but you still have to pay gst and duty on top of that which works out to about $90.

I’ve purchased a Fox Air Shocker from Partshark in November 2018.  It was AUD$800 landed.  I didn’t pay GST.  Just this week, I’ve received some stuff from Spain costing AUD$400.  Again, delivered to my door (no GST).  I am aware that all imports, even those costing below $1,000 are meant to attract GST now, but from my experience that seems to be limited to sellers who are participating in the ATO GST program.

Yeah there's a few things that come into it, and the freight company and how you pay plays a big part.

First up you should have paid tax on both of those items, it's great that you didn't, but if everything was done correctly then you would have paid. I buy work related products from a range of companies from numerous countries and I never avoid the government hand out. Mostly I'll pay at the time of purchase, sometimes I'll have to pay to release it once it's in Australia, and on one occasion I had to pay to the transport company after a knock on my door about two months after the item was delivered. I think it was Toll, but don't hold me to that.

I've noticed that even my Website provider that, while presenting itself as an Australian company, never charged GST, which it would normally be required to as an Australian company. They are actually a Dubai company which is why they didn't charge GST or use proper invoicing. About a year ago that all changed, this Dubai company, operating within Australia, now has to follow all the typical GST rules. They are cracking down on everything, and fairly hard. 

In the case of an Ebay transaction, it's Paypal who do the GST compliance. Below is what my screen looks like if I were to go ahead with the purchase.

Oh I see...  Ebay and Paypal are enforcing the GST collection.
