Question about goat belly

Been reading the verses about removing the belly or relocating the rectifier. From what I read the front and rear exhaust goes into a muffler under the bike? I have only had my vn750 for a month ,so I went to take a look at mine. My front cylinder exhaust leaves the right side and goes straight to rear of bike. Rear leaves left side and does the same. independent pipes. There is a stamping on the pipes reading 'Kawasaki exhaust.....noise rating etc. then at the rear is a logo reading "Sanke " serial number 2232. Mine is a 1993 VN750A. Are these aftermarket pipes? Should I need to rejet? I am getting 55MPG on the 60 mph highways.

I think it all stock. Mess with it and you will be getting 40 mpg.

My main question was the confusing about the term 'goat belly' does both pipes go into a common muffler that needs to be removed to not over heat the rectifier? And if so, why on my bike there is two separate pipes with nothing under the battery / rectifier. So, I would not need to relocate the rectifier??

unless you look from underneath, you wont be able to see if the pipes got into the belly. actually, its more like the belly connects the 2 sides

Some folks have done "Goatectomies" removing the goats belly but keeping the stock exhaust. This likely what was done to your bike if your sure theres no chamber above the swing arm connecting the two exhausts.
