exhaust

There is a set on E Bay, a salvage dealer. Starting bid is $90. Shipping is $26. Not sure if they will ship to Canada you can ask. No bids yet. Maybe someone here that has gone the other way may sell you their origional.

Gunner, do you still want stock pipes for your 1700? Have you gotten rid of the one that are on it now? Do you know if a 2008 Road Star will swap exhaust with your 2006? My son-in-law has a VERY low mile 2008 with the stock pipes on it and he wants his louder......

Thanks in advance!

Slip on muffler

Gunner,
I see J&P shows the same Bud slip on muffler for 99 thru 07. That might mean the exhaust changed when they went to Injection.

Don't know if you can install the baffles in your exhaust, if they were cut out or if one is available. Many aftermarket exhausts are louder then stock but I would think they would have to be not as loud with the baffles in. Guess we should give the sales person the benefit of doubt and say they meant to say you could not install the baffles. There are some mufflers that baffles are an option. There are some that people have cut them out.

I reduced to sound level of mine by buying drag pipe baffles from E-bay($15). I put them in the hollow babbles & tach welded them in place.

Great sound
