the stock set up on my 04 750 goes like this: pipe out of cylinder to slip on muffler assembly. two different pipes one for front and one for rear running down both sides of the bike.

the slip on portion of the assembly is still on the pipe cause i cant seem to slip it off. I still have all the pieces. but i took the other side off so that i didnt have one cylinder restricted and one wide open.

I was wondering if there was an inexpensive easy bolt on out there that anyone knew of. i cant afford OEM replacements at 250 a side. I want to replace both mufflers due to age if at all possible.

I hope that answered your question. thanks for your help

Niterider thanks for the lingo explanation

I think Kanuck69 has HD Dyna mufflers.
Pretty sure someone has Sportster mufflers.

Start a Want To Buy thread in the SWAP or SELL forum for a set of stock mufflers. Many members may have a set sitting around after changing out for louder aftermarket pipes. Might get them at a very reasonable price.

Good luck.

l3rice:

Im out in scottsdale and have a similar issue. I de-goated my 750 and now am in search of pipes for it. I have decided on something like the Cobra slash cuts for vn750s which have the back cylinder exhaust cross over to the right side. Right now I'm running a stock muffler and a 13 inch muffler I picked up from JC whitney a long time ago till I find what I want or make it, no hurry. What I have found is pretty much any pipe with 1 3/4 inside diameter could work with some extra work.
