Exactly - I want to cut it open and remove cat. I have heard many Harley's with gutted mufflers and they always sound not so good IMHO. I gutted the cans on my 996 and replaced the internals with parts from a couple of cheapo glasspacks and it sounded as good as any Termis. I will post up with pics if it happens soon.Are you planning on trying to modify it or something? I'd love to open mine up and remove the cat to make it a bit louder! But I wouldn't want to take the risk without a spare. If they sell for that money i might just give it a shot
I could not agree more!IMO I think $100 is fair for a used OEM exhaust. I see people trying to sell stock exhausts on CL for $1k and have to wonder what people are smoking. Stock exhausts don't really have any "value" since they're easily replaced with far better aftermarket solutions, so if you can get any money for a stock exhaust I think it's great.
Here is a peak inside the stock cat!Did you buy a Termi or Zard or whatever? I would like to buy your stock exhaust (not head pipes, just cat etc.) I am going to cut it open and remove cat and then re weld it together. I will post pics of the process and a video clip with the sound. Anybody out there interested? I can include an aluminum tail tidy to sweeten the deal if desired. Let me know.
...Until you drop your bike and damage your new exhaust. Then the stock one has much higher value. If you have the room to store it.A couple of weeks ago one sold for $132 on EBay. If you have bought a Termi or a Zard or whatever the thing is going to be sitting around gathering dust anyways. As more and more exhaust choices become available and the prices get a little more reasonable I hope I can buy one for that.
Turns out my friend is already on his way back....So you will have to ship it to me.Some questions - what sort of shape is the exhaust in?
How do I pay you? Do you accept PayPal or another form of payment?
Could you possibly post a picture of what I'm buying?
