stock pipe exchange

Post by Danwoo » Thu Jun 10, 2010 9:52 am

I just bought a 2001 Gl1800. It has a cobra exhaust with baffle that is just too loud for my tastes. Someone told me I could probably find someone who would like these pipes and would be willing to exchange. I have no idea how much these pipes are worth or how much stock pipes are worth. I'm taking a road trip in 5 days and would sure love a quieter ride.
  • Any advice out there on what I can do?
    Is this possible?
    Where's the best place to find someone?
    Are all models of GL1800 pipes interchangeable?
    Any technical issues to watch out for?
If any one wants to compare the sounds between cobra and stock, here is an excellent video:

I would love to find someone with excellent stock pipes who would like to exchange for $150. New cobra's appear to be around $400. Also, these pipes have the mufflers installed, which I assume can be removed if one desires a louder sound.

I have a set of stock pipes, and I will gladly swap them for your cobras...I have torque loopz and I don't like the combination of loopz and stock pipes...PM me and we can talk about it---in fact, I have a set of true stock pipes, and a set with turndowns...
