Hey guys,

I just took a look at the mufflers on my xs1b and noticed that there is a lot of rattling inside of them both. I'm pretty sure that they are both rotted out inside...

I was wondering what my options are for good sounding mufflers?

I know mikes sells "the best sounding exhaust every made for the xs" but they're going to run me quite a bit of money. Are there any pipes that are good and less expensive or should i just not be a tight wad?

Taylor, you could try looking on craigslist or at a mc swap meet for some sportster mufflers.Everybody takes them off. They shouldn't have a crossover though. I have a set I bought for 10 or 15 dollars that I'm going to try out sometime.Pretty sure I'll have to fab up some brackets though. Jayel has them on his bike.



You don't HAVE to be crazy to run into burning buildings, but it HELPS!
