@Racepres I'm gonna try and get a pair of mufflers on it at the very least. Like I said I cant imagine it's going to perform any worse than what's on it now but at least the will fit correctly.

I cant justify 700+ on a thunder header or bassani or whatever 2-1 exhausts will with an FXR.... I had been looking at danmoto pipes because they were in my price range but he must have slowed production or quit all together because there isnt a single FXR pipe of his anywhere on the net. Hell I cant even find the pipes on his site....

I put FXS pipes complete on my '82... fit right up...only loss is the "dip" in the front pipe..
Betting Dyna pipes will go right on that FXR... Certainly Softail stuff... Gotta fab Mounts anyway...

Yeah I just cheaped out and got this set off ebay, has heat shields and stuff was only like $100 shipped so I went for it. Till I can commit myself to actually messing with this thing. If I'm gonna go that route I'm gonna go all the way and just pull the engine/primary/trans and save em since it's all matching stock stuff and I'll find some other evo to blow up. Lol

I'll probably never get that far. I've only ridden this thing a handful of times... I dont wanna sell it, but stuff is getting busy around here so it's just gonna hang out for a while. Lol

Any softail or dyna (evo or tc) will fit an FXR. But you'll have to fab brackets.

Party is getting started.... looks like I lost a valve seal on the rear head (has a seeping head gasket too). Guess while the primary is out I could pop the top end off....

I got the tubes from tc bro’s during their 4th of July sale. Paid 250 for the tubes and seal set. Shipped. Super fast shipping to. I would highly recommend these guys.
