After looking at different brands of exhausts, reading reviews and watching sound clips, i decided to go with Muzzy exhaust. Their systems are high quality full stainless, tig welded, with CNC machined endcaps. Fully serviceable with machine allen head screws. The system is held on with a series of springs, 2 brackets holding the cans, and 1 L bracket/hose clamp that supports the y pipe. It uses the OEM clamp where it joins with the factory head pipe. You also need to remove the OEM gasket from the muffler, its a fiber type that slips inside. Without it youll have a major exhaust leak.
Install was very easy, stock muffler comes off in under 10 minutes. Need to remove the two rear uprights, and the 4 bolts that hold down the rear fender to the frame. Brackets fit perfect, everything lined up. The pipes are a thing of beauty, theyre perfectly bent for a seamless install. The OEM muffler weighs around 20 lbs, this new system is approx 1/2 of that. It comes with quiet cores and spark arrestor, which are easily removed. If youre not using either, you have to make sure to install the 2 metal ring spacers which are included to keep the endcap properly spaced.
Im running the system straight through, no quiet cores or spark arrestor. It has a very nice low rumble to it. This system is much more free breathing, allowing the machine to run cooler, and adds a noticeable amount of power. You need to run a tuner with it, otherwise you will be running very lean. For the first hour or 2 running this exhaust, you’ll notice a very odd smell coming from it. From the factory, the packing is inside of a thin plastic bag when installed, and for the first hour or 2 the bag melts off, and youll be smelling it for a little lol.
Overall, this system is very nicely put together. For the price point, its in the same range as the other systems, but much higher quality. Id recommend muzzy to anyone, their products are truly top notch! If youre looking for a good retailer for Muzzy, contact VForceJohn, hes the #1 retailer in the US, with the best prices.
