Road Star - V Star exhaust compatibility?

any chance that Cobra pipes from a 99 Road Star 1600 will fit a 1100 V-Star.
I already know the answer is probably "no".
just wondered if there was a chance.
thanks

The diameter of the pipe on the 1600 is larger but if you can get a reducer Insert I bet you can make it work. Possibly need to have a new bracket welded on as well. If the price is right I bet a muffler shop can have them on for you with very little cost.

Nope.....sorry. Unless you can figure out how to re-bend everything it's a no-go. The pipes radius is completely different.

I wanted to use the full pipes as I have lost one of the little heat shield from the 1100 and slip on's will not fix that.
the Road Star pipes would have been given to me if I could use them. so it was worth a shot to ask.
