  • Someone here knows the answer to this question...

    Okay guys, I been thinkin'. That's not always a bad thing. I've got some aftermarket headpipes laying around that were originally Santee with their mufflers on them. I cut their mufflers off, and now... I've got some plain headpipes... and stock Harley muffler cans are cheap on eBay. My question is, as I sure don't know... Does anyone know what H-D model sounded best, that I might, maybe, snag the stock Harley mufflers from that model off of eBay??? I've got an idea as to how to mount them, or maybe as a 2 into 1 system, and am willing to 'speriment with the idea. Winter's getting long, and my PMS (Parked Motorcycle Syndrome) is starting to get to me bad!

    Seems blueverclear had done this to his 2 into 1 and had to weld a reducer down to 1 3/4” to accommodate a HD muffler. I like the HD touring take off mufflers. After 8 to 10 hrs riding my ears ring but could be way worst. Has a nice rumble at idle and on throttle. Since I am running Bassani headers I am looking at HD softail heritage springer sharktail mufflers so I can use stock Bassani mufflers if I want to take the bags off. Hope this helps Quest! JC

      No need for any reducer. Both headpipes are already 1 3/4", and I've a friend that can fab a collector to go into 1, if I choose to do so. I may use a touring muffler. Ralph Kurpeski, in Boston, near me, says he has some H-D mufflers, so I may visit and inspect his wares. My stock muffs are Stage 3, and sound pretty good, but the stock look isn't particularly attractive. IF I can get better sound and look, I'm all for it!

    I assume you can drill out stock HD mufflers as well to increase sound??

      This is what I'm hearing on the FB side. Stock H-D cans are pretty quiet, and probably any good sounding H-D is actually running an aftermarket or gutted factory can.

    I have been experimenting with different HD cans on my 2-1 setup.
    Ran the right side from a '14 FLD and found it made too much back pressure. Checked the left side can and it was only a resonator!
    Sounded great, but after a few hours even my earplugs hurt!
    Presently running a Supertrapp nitestick. 16 discs. Looks great too!

      If you put an H/D muffler on your R/S, that will slow it down at least 10 MPH.

        He doesn't ride over 50mph so that shouldn't be a problem.......
