It's a sad story.
That poor machine is missing 2 to 4 cylinders.

Know its new taste and be loyal, you'll know when to change that oil.

And don't flirt with dirt or darkened oil, all the faster your engine will spoil.

I assume it's your 1200 needs mufflers?
I have the 1500 and picked up a pair of HD long muffs for $20 pair at flea market.
Tho they're used but in great shape.

So maybe you can find a similar set?

PIX of what you have? Someone might be interested.

I have stainless steel scouring pads in my Wing's tail pipe, it's pretty quite now.
The muff's are rotting out from the inside so the baffles got to be shot.
DOLLAR Store, four for $2.00... worth a try at that price.
Vise grip and small angle bracket to hold the pads inside as a test.

Similar to these...


Other pads...

THESE I HAVE and work well... but are becoming very scarce. (wonder why?)
