I had the unfortunate experience of having my top muffler fall off on the way home yesterday. I recovered it but not before it got hit by a car. What a bummer.

Sorry to hear that. You might find a used one for a decent price. A lot of people swap out for aftermarket pipes.

jms, your lost muffler has messed up my mind.

When I started up my 650 this morning and was checking my lights I noticed the grass under my muffler was moving with the exhaust note.

All the way to work I was thinking "damn, my muffler has rusted thru!"

when I parked the bike at work I looked under the lower muffler: Two drain holes!

Yeah! Drain holes!

Life is goo.

I hope you find a stock muffler for a decent price. I've looked for them to replace obnoxiously loud aftermarket systems but even used OEMs tend to command a high price unless you get lucky.

Yes, life is full of goo.
I want a tee shirt or bumper sticker with an image of the DNA double helix that says that:

LIFE IS GOO

and a tee shirt of a hiker surrounded by wild animals that says:

I didnt choose the WildLife...

I bought a set on ebay for $124. Apparently they are made of gold?
Bikebandit.com has OEM yamaha parts - now you got me wondering what they sell for new?

I found it on bike bandit - have to go thru the OEM pages for your specific bike

now I wish I didnt look - bottom muffler is $685 !

top one is $635

YIKES!

If you got a pair you paid 10% of the cost for a new set.

If you picked up the one that got pancaked I would nail it to the wall in my garage

like I said, that is extremely rare.
