Exhaust pipe extensions.

Postby Stretch56 » Tue Dec 22, 2009 10:08 pm



My 86 1200A has the chrome wrap around bumper with lights. Along with that is the exhaust extensions,muffler into a twin pipe on each side. They are floppy loose, PO had them wired to the bumper. They rattle and leak where they hook to the end of the muffler. Any good way to seal the connection and tighten it up. There are two nuts and set screws on the bottom side but they don't seem to work well.
Maybe just remove and forget? Don't see any of them for sale any where.

Hmm sounds like exhaust extentions made for pickup's trucks and cars. I'm a welder /pipe fitter by trade about the only way to make them fit is first remove the tips messure the inside dimator of the extentions then the out side of where there going to be mounted. Then you'll know how much needs to be added to either end. You might get lucky with just a sleve or a reducer adapter they can be used to work either way from an automtive parts store. Some high temp RTV or JB weld should seal everything up should you decide to not weld everything together some band type clamps made of stainles steel might cover everything up and look good too as oppsed to welds wich will discolor any remaining chrome and interfear with the structural quality of the weld in it's self. I'm haveing trouble finding a nice solid exhaust for our 82 interstate what I'm thinking about is make use of the head pipes where they come together and cutting them off at that point then mounting mufflers from a let's say a FLH touring bike. I havent done it yet when I do I'll get busy posting pics.

i just did the exact thing to my 80gl1100 pipes except i used mufflers off of a 1200 sportster. had to fab a short pipe with a 30 degree bend in it and used the stock brackets that way. worked out nice

Cool beaners I wonder what that would sound like being form a sportster. I have a set of mufflers from my suzuki cavalcade we loved the way the bike rode and was wisper quite but all of its problems were way to costly to do anything more other than part it out. I think I'll go with HD touring bike mufflers most of the ones left stock sound very quite but have a low rumble.
