So I currently have the stock mufflers on the bike, previously the clamps that go to the goats belly both cracked at the welds so I took the opportunity to fully gut out the mufflers before I JB welded them back on. I dig the sound and like the fact that the bike still looks stock. Unfortunately the right side did not hold and it’s cracked again. Before I take it off and remove the old JB off to try an reconnect it I decided to explore the alternatives. The only full set of pipes I’ve found were a set of Jardines, they don’t look bad but I just bought a new seat and not looking to spend $300 for pipes just yet. I’ve seen multiple posts in the past about HD muffs for either a Sportster or Dyna and I found a cheap set. My question is what is that perpendicular open port on the inlets for? Trying to understand what I’m looking at before I entertain buying anything
These mufflers have been gutted. (baffles removed- see photo 6 ). '04-'13 Harley Davidson XL Sportster Models. Otherwise good used condition. What you see is what you get. See photos.
