"Other" HD exhausts

I must consider myself fortunate, for my parts motor has half of a degoated and spaced exhaust system. Thus, I have the rusty enough stock setup, and one with potential, so if I don't quite agree with it, I can always go back.

I have a selection of Harley Davidson pull offs. From what I've seen, a few people have converted to HD mufflers, but only the smaller ones. I have two pairs, one smooth, the other with fins, but about half again longer. Has anyone ever tried these? I figure if it's intended to flow well for a 1340, it should do well on a 750. Also, it'd be a lot easier than fabbing collectors for my four banger, which I plan on doing anyway.....someday.

I have these....


And a couple pair like those, but smooth.

I also have a set of straight through Screamin' Eagles, which I'll probably use at least once, but turned down, as HD is always on the right, it seems.

I love the fins, but will I love the sound?

Dianna had some with fins on her ride. She recently regoated, though. I know that she'd be one to ask about the sound.

I used the Harley Dynas when I regoated. The finned mufflers were a universal 27" muffler with little or no baffling. Re-goating with the Dynas gave the bike a healthy growl without the obnoxiously loudness that irritated me on long trips.

Well, I'm actually leaning towards a quieter ride. I don't want the stock db, but I don't want it to make my ears ring any more than they always do. I have the baffle-less megaphones on my Honda to thank for that. These are stock Harley. They look to be baffled pretty well. They're also practically new. Either way, I'm sure they'll find their way on the bike.

The Dynas are the shorter ones, correct?

They are about 20" long. I liked the "look" of the fishtails since I have hard bags and they came out just past the end of the bags giving it that kinda Indian/Drifter look. But I gave up appearance to save my hearing since I do tend to take long rides. The noise-cancelling earplugs didn't help much and no one wanted to ride behind me for long *L*

The harley mufflers are what I would call respectable as far as tone now with the goat's belly giving me the crossover and equalizing them..
