Hello all!

I've been reading a lot about exhaust and slip ons yet no one mentions how they connected them to the bike. No modification info yet there clearly needs to be one.

I'm looking for info related to slip ons that would give me that Harley rumble. Degoated, ear shaved, rejet 142/42 and dualed. Have original tips on now.

93 vn750.

Thanks all!

Kristoco

OleDirtyDoc you sure do love those Screeming Eagles. Do you by chance have a pic of that bracket you made? I'm a visual guy.

Degoated, with sportster pipes is a fair approximation of an 883 but Knifemaker is right you won't be able to get the exact same sound.

As to mounting I welded a 2 piece H-pipe to the head pipes and then welded a set of sportster mufflers to the H-pipe. Then I used flat stock similar to the way Doc did to hang them.

I put a set of Harley Sportster muffs on mine. Degoated and had crossover pipe welded in. Muffler shop fabbed a couple short flat stock hangers similar to Docs. The muffs were finally even in the back, plus they sound a bit deeper and more mellow. Very nice change in sound and looks.

Hmmm. I have a set of sportster pipes yet I'm not into doing the crossover pipe. I also thought making the pipes the same length required a lot of changes.?

To get equal length just use a short piece of exhaust pipe on the shorter side and adjust the flat stock bracket length accordingly to fit.
