Different PRs from differing manufactures vary. OEM are all equal length. Most aftermarket PR sets have one long PR, goes to the front exhaust. The two shortest go to the intakes, and if there is still a midlength PR it goes tot he rear exhaust. For Pannies, Shovelheads, and Evos....

Thank you for the TY....
I don't have a Panhead PR handy, but that just under 1/2 inch sounds about right, Shovelheads use a much smaller ball end for the rockers.
Pictured is a set of trashed Panny PRs for a visual comparison....
