V & H Cruzers

Ok, I've lost my RH Muffler, and the exhaust cover on the same side is broken. To replace both and the missing hardware is almost $500; I looked into the cruzers, and they're less than $400. My question is about re-jetting. I've already re-jetted for the ear shave, but will I need to change the jets again for the cruzers? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Shouldn't have to change them again. Maybe just adjust your mix.

What do you mean $500 for a RH stock Muffler???? They're a dime a dozen on ebay.

I was looking at new ones, and I also broke the rear heat shield clamp, and lost the mounting hardware for the muffler. Besides, I used the price as an excuse to put Cruzers on, otherwise the wife wouldn't have gone for it.
