Rut,

Please tell me which Harley muffler you are using. I have ca completed exhaust system but it is quite loud. Hap told me the car sounded like a race car. Ever more troubling, my wife said it was too loud. Headed to the Mitty next weekend and would like to have this issue solved by then.

Thanks,

Wayne

Wayne,
Down in OB so I don't have a picture with me. It's a short muffler off a Sportster I think...does not have a crossover hole. IIRC it's about 18" long and has a slash cut tip. The Harley service dept will be most helpful if you show up with a box of donuts looking for a takeoff muffler! Good luck, Rut
Did an internet search and this is what they look like.

Reviving this thread.
I installed a header, centerpipe and muffler today. I'm showing the rear joint in the picture, but it's the forward one from header to pipe that has a little leak.

Is there a better clamp I can get for this size? Did some internet searching and came up short.

I'd see if you can find some muffler sealing paste. Toop much force with a clamp will distort the pipe and might make it worse.
