sportster mufflers

The Harley sportster mufflers look like a no weld option for early Wings. Do they require a re-jet? How loud are they? Are there any other no weld options?

A little louder, any add ons can be no weld if you use a flex connector to attach to the headers and get inventive with the hanger

Yes, they require a re-jet.

I disagree ..no rejet..many run straight pipes with no rejet and are happy..but a lot louder. GLs are very forgiving on the exhaust side but not on the intake side..
