My header cracked on the inner surface between two ports.
Getting at it to weld was impossible. Add to that the material is not very heavy gauge.......so rather than replace it with OEM that might crack again,
I did go with a Remus system with the "street" silencer
Way too much noise for Karen.........and me.
A thread on this site gave a remedy to reduce 50% of the new sound and I went for it. Consisted of adding a SS tube into the end of the silencer.
Worked very well. Because I have a trike, I was able to add additional inches of tubing and cover the resultant undersized looking tube with a chrome exhaust tip. I am back to a tad more than stock sound and a very free breathing engine.
MORE POWER !
