Normal muffler recommendation
« on: March 03, 2016, 05:05:56 pm »
I'm looking for a RE style long muffler to replace my bazooka OEM muffler.

Recommendations please.

Of course I will cut out the hot pipe on the down pipe too.

Emgo has lots of cote effective alternatives:

I'm partial to the "cocktail/bellmouth" muffler

Update:

Ordered a Emgo upswept cocktail shaker installed it started the motor and I found it to be painfully loud. Removed it and put it in the parts pile.

A used muffler off a Harley Sportster worked just fine on my C5.  An EMGO spacer and a HD clamp and a home made bracket.  Been on now for about a year.  Not too loud and no re-mapping.  Very inexpensive remedy.

I bought a large volume, cheap, Dunstall look-a-like that turned out to have very restrictive and crudely designed internal baffling - basically a length of pierced and flattened small bore tubing. It might have worked ok on a 125, but not a 500 single.

I kept the shell but junked the internal baffling:

So you need to make sure that any after-market silencer is actually going to flow better that the OEM bazooka.

@Scotty Brown - Can you tell me which EMGO spacer did you use ?
I did something similar, couldn't find a nice spacer, had to wrap copper sheet, does the job but looks very unprofessional :(
