any leads on specific dyna/sportster mufflers to fit?

hi, does anyone know of any specific harley dyna or sportster mufflers that will pretty much slip on with no fab work? don't mind the fab work but right now i hardly have time to comb my hair! i am looking for a specific model and year range that will install fairly easily. i would hate to buy a set and have them not work out, returning mail order stuff is a pain. i am running the stock exhaust right now, want to keep the goat's belly, just want to change things up a bit. longer mufflers are fine. if anyone has a specific set that worked well i would appreciate you saving me a headache!

a bit louder is ok, don't want anything annoying though as i ride 100% on the 2 lane hiways.

also, i assume no rejetting or other mods need done when just the mufflers are swapped? thanks!

I'm sorry I don't have specs & details for you. I just simply searched out dyna mufflers & bought the cheapest set I found.

I will say I think you'll be happy with the sound if your NOT looking for loud & no, just changing the mufflers with something like the dyna's on this bike does not require re-jetting.

These are the ones that I put on mine. Nice and quiet. Can't compare it to stock because the op before me gutted the mufflers. Does take just a bit of modding but nothing major, just a bit of 1/8" x 1" stock bar and drill some holes in it and two nuts and bolts. I did get new clamps too.

Any time. Bikes a bit dirty, but that's because I ride it every day and got sprinkled on yesterday.

I have one or two sets of new take offs in the garage. I will have to check dimensions.
They don't bring very much on E-bay or at swap meets.
