Could any of you guys who have put the upswept muffler on the C5 (Danny?) tell me what it cost you? I called CMW to find out what it would cost and they refused to give it to me. The convoluted explanation I got sounded like they didn't want to divulge the cost so dealers could "determine the price" (mark up) in addition to the labor. I knew it was a mandatory dealer install (which is also BS to me, but whatever...) but I though I could at least find out the price of the part and determine my level of interest before bothering my dealer with it. Sorry for the rant within the question, but I hate the fact that I don't have the choice to do my own work. This is a job I am really going to chafe at having to pay someone labor to do. Isn't right.Anywho, any help would be appreciated.
I think some new items will be dealer only as to help dealers with the parts business.. Kevin hinted at it in previous posts so that is my guess.. Understandably in the long run as it seems the RE and their dealer network is growing in the states.When I purchased my 07' I bought my shorty muffler through the dealer.. I thought was how it always went. Later I was pleasantly surprised to see what you could get online. I guess you can chalk it up to things change....
I ordered the exhaust the day I bought the bike, UPS dropped it off a few months later and I put it on. This is the first I've heard of mandatory dealer install so I can't help with that. It does look and sound great though!
