Hello all, I am about to cut upen my factory "06" 1000 muffler in order to remove some of the constrictions. Has anyone done this or have pics of it opened up? I am trying to make the correct cut so I don't have to tig up too many slices. I am thinking the factory weld towards the front of the can would be the spot to start. Thanks in advance.

Yeah...I cut the entire muffler off...but left the EGCV in place. Breathes really good...looses a little on bottom...gains a good bit up top. Then you need to gear it lower so you can manage the new power curve better. I'm putting in a 14 tooth front sprocket this weekend if I'm lucky :)

$$$. Cheaper to cut into your stock exhaust then it is to buy a new one. If you want loud, you can make the stock one plenty loud for free.
yea i mean i've heard the free mod but I still think its lacking, but that's just me i would rather spend the money for the best sound, performance, and looks that drill a hole.

I would suggest only dropping 1 tooth in the front. You can go up +3 teeth in the back to compensate for -1 on the front. Only 14 teeth on the front sprocket may cause some complications. Just fair warning. Most of us go -1 on the front & +2 or +3 in the back....

I did this with my exhaust, sounded like crap, extremely loud and high pichted. For the trouble its worth, you'd be better off saving up some money to get a slipon. I would post photos but I cleaned up the garage and trashed the thing. If you do decide to bother with it. You need to cut out as much of the top as you can. The mufler is very complex on the inside, three chambers, and three or four tubes. You need plenty of room to get your grinder in there to gut it. I wanted to go the cheap way also, but grew very tired of the sound very fast. I have a krtuned full system now.
