Anybody have suggestions on replacement mufflers? Like good price and where to get them? Even a good set of used ones would be great. Thanks

I had a rusting right muffler and I just bought these off of ebay.
They're in very good condition!

One of these days I'm gonna gut the exhaust and put a pair of Cherry Bombs in those cans. And do away with the crossover pipe/chamber.

Ebay frequently has used ones for sale. I sold my stock set there after i bought an aftermarket set last September. I'm really happy with the Torq Master's i put on.
Heres a link to the thread.

You might check into using Harley mufflers. They are readily available and cheap. Scroll down to the vids.

I was going to suggest getting a pair of Harley mufflers. There seems to be a whole lot more of them available than Goldwing mufflers and a whole lot cheaper. :D
Been looking in to that because I really don't like the way my pipes sound. Don't know what they are, they were there when I bought the bike. :D

I saw that article and it would seem you would need a pipe bender available to you to get the angles just right. Thanks though for the suggestion

Need a two inch pipe with a thirty degree bend in it. Saw it on a YouTube video.

No problem. I think I'm going to do this but it will be a project for next winter. :D
