I picked up a set of take offs for my 2004 Heritage. I got sick of listening to Screaming Eagles and they are now nesting in the local landfill. Much nicer ride. After the install I noticed that the distance from the baffle to the end of the muffler is not the same in both mufflers. See photo- the blue tape signifies where the baffles are. I don't remember them being marked "front" and "rear" but they are definitely different. I think the reason is to make each pipe have the same distance from the head to the end of the baffle. In that case, these are on wrong and need to be reversed. Right now the back pressures are unequal. Thanks.

Thanks for the information and that's a very good possibility. They look exactly the same on the outside. I'm still curious if they were made that way to make the distance from the head to the end of the baffles the same for both cylinders. It runs fine and the plugs read pretty good.
