85 gl1200 after market exhaust systems

Post by plhcpat »



Has anyone had any success with an aftermarket exhaust system. I got the stator issue resolved, and failed water pump, (from 2000 according to old owners notes), front wheel bearings, now the exhaust is leaking so your pant legs stink like exhaust after a ride. Did 400 miles today from Elverson, PA to Altoona and back, and my coveralls, pants and boots stink like exhaust! Any help would be great!
Thanks,
Pat

I know some people have put Harley Sportster mufflers on their 1100's, so perhaps that might be an option? They can be had pretty cheap, as a lot of them rip off the factory mufflers when the bikes are brand new so they can put straight pipes on.
