Looks very good! How is the sound? Any video? Is it louder than Vance and Hines?
If you could describe your job step by step, that would be really awesome!
I just bought spare mufflers exactly for this project, but I don't know how to weld and when I brought them to the custom shop, they told me that it's impossible to do it.
Then I found this post and I wanna know more details so I can go back there and say "Hey, it's possible, here is how"
Yes, sounds more than stock. No, not as loud as Vance and Hines. I would say, somewhere in between. I don't want it to sound too loud, because it gets annoying after long ride and don't want to have the drone at certain RPM, but it's loud enough that people hear me. However, I could have made it louder, as the whole muffler is wrapped with fiberglass on the inside, which I left it alone.
No shop will do this, because of the design of muffler, as you may have seen from the pictures I posted on how the muffler works. I had to completely cut 2 pipes from the inside, you can't really poke a whole like in most. This thing is welded shut, unless you have grinding and welding skills. I say welding skill because the sheet metal is very thin, so you will have to be very careful on welding it back, otherwise you will make holes you don't want.
If you still want instructions posted, let me know. I'll try to do it.
