I wish I had that experience. I had to cut the ends off, split em up the middle seam and pry the liner out. Then I slid the thrush inside, welded the seam back up and then welded the ends on. I've done two sets. It takes me about 3 hours or so to do both mufflers.I didnt. Since i had a little over 500 miles on my mufflers I had an easy time slipping them in. Cut off the end cap, insert the muffler in (straight) and bang on a piece of 4x4 post. Took maybe 10 min for both sides.
I got the length part no problem. I'm just debating taking out the inner screen and packing.measure what you want for length and then go to auto parts store and order them. That way you get free shipping and if there not right you can take them back. As long as there new
The PO of my XR put on an aftermarket exhaust [at the dealer]...but I can find no name on the outside of them. I guess it's under the heat shields ?
They are a large round [4-5"] end design ...sometimes seem a bit loud too me. But I came off a whisper quiet BMW...so I'll give it a while maybe I'll come to like them ?
If anyone thinks they recognize the description ? Please advise...I'm curious as to what they are.
I think you mean Flowtech mufflersI used Flowmaster 50252 FLT mufflers. They have a 2 1/2" inlet/outlet, and sound great!
Look on craigslist under services. I found a guy 5 blocks a way and he charged me ten buckYep. I understand I'll have to weld it back together. I'm sure I could find a guy that knows how. I could even take it to a muffler shop and have them weld them up for me. They probably will charge me a little money, but it's still less than buying new pipes.
I was between using the 1 3/4" and the 2" thrush, went with the 2" and they dynotuned very well, better then most mufflers. I am still curious how the 1 3/4 would have done.
