yeah....that's what i was thinking. measure back from the header (at the flange/stop) 17 1/2 inches and see where that leaves the meggie. normally these type of muffs have a slotted track on the back where the mounting hardware goes. looks like the passenger peg area might be perfect to mount a strap to. try to use some rubber/isolastic mounts for vibration.
If it's mufflers you're after, shop by header diameter rather than by bike model. What are yours, 1.5"? Should be something in that neighborhood. Lots of aftermarket stuff in that size - check out the Emgo stuff on Cycle Recycle. Also some pretty cool Norton peashooters that I think are in that range on ebay. All of that stuff just clamps right on, no welding necessary.
Headers are more complicated, primarily because the mounting flange is somewhat bike (or at least make/period) specific. You could at the least mount a CL125S header without issue.
Thanks tex. the bikes coming along. the next photos of it should look pretty different. front fender trimmed, mini-clubmans, bar-end mirror, new tires, blinkers, break light, rebuilt front forks and about 35lbs of weight loss.
i bought a universal muffler from j&p cycles up in daytona this morning, thinking a 1 3/4 inch inlet could fit. it seems that my header is only 1 inch? that's pretty fricken small. it looked really good mocked up on there too. shit.
i think i'm going to have a problem finding a 1 inch inlet to weld or clamp.
those peashooters are great. but, their all 1 3/4.
Well, it's got a baffle- so, i went with it. only because the bracket that comes on it lines up perfectly with where the original bracket was. so, not only do i get to loose the heavy original bracket, i have a nice small clean little muffler that cleans up the bike.
trimmed the front fender and painted the brackets today.
I'll try and post some pictures.
