Mounting Issues With CVO FXR exhaust on 85 FXR.

Might have a 2 into 1 exhaust lined up. Was just curious if there will be any issues with mounting an FXR3 exhaust to my 85. They claim it mounts to the passenger peg...?

I still have the tranny mount and mount bracket on my FXR.

Let me know!

Thank you

What 2-1 exhaust are you getting? The FXR3 factory exhaust was 2-2 and the rear mount was to the transmission. Some aftermarket FXR pipes use the passenger peg, some use the transmission mount.

Do you know the brand and model of 2-1 pipe you're getting?

More or less any Evo FXR pipe set will fit any Evo FXR. Forward control pipes usually wont fit mids, but other than that they work. The tranny mount changed once, but that was related to the tranny case. late mounts can be made to work on early trannys. The rear hanger was eliminated on later scooters, but it's not at all needed. The muffler bracket off of later scooters can be used on early scooters, thus eliminating the rear hanger. Eliminating the rear hanger actually helps reduce vibrations transmitted to the frame.

With FXR's, it the foot peg location that is the limiting factor for mounting pipes. The front and rear mounts are really simple and can be adapted to fit almost any configuration. And the rear muffler hanger or foot peg, depending on year, is easy to adapt. Just remember that the rear hanger or foot peg both need to be rubber mounted.

It was a Vance and Hines Pro-Pipe and it came off a bike with mids which mine is too. I want a black pipe and I here painting exhaust is kind of a pain. This one is chrome.

The V&H Pro Pipe (to my knowledge) uses a passenger peg hanger for the muffler. As long as you get all the V&H brackets (dog bone with rubber grommets and bushings, and another bracket that bolts to the muffler) you should be OK. Might need a longer bolt for the footpeg along with a spacer to make for desireable positioning of the dog-bone to muffler bracket. I ran V&H Straight Shots on my FXR2 for some years and I found I needed to do this. Not sure about high-temp paint over chrome. I'd guess it would be a good idea to scuff the chrome up a bit first.
