Replacement exhaust like stock

I think one of my baffles is coming loose and I'm looking at the options for replacing the exhausts. I see I can get new-ish sets for around $150 on ebay, but I was wondering what the alternatives are for brand new.


I see various offerings at JPCycles and am thinking the longer EMGO may be the way to go. I have zero experience with this, so I'm looking for recommendations from folk who have done this.



I am NOT interesting in making the bike louder and hope I can do it without re-jetting.


Thanks in advance.

Are you sure it's a loose baffle? It's uncommon for them to get loose. If you're hearing a noise check the rear exhaust mounts. That's usually where the noise comes from.

Sorry not ignoring you, tried twice to reply and it just got lost. Ah well.
Found the fuel tank bolt (12mm) was loose yesterday.
And no, I'm not sure it just seems the bike is getting louder each time I open the throttle past about half way. Heh, maybe my hearing is improving!

On rare occasions the inner wall of dual wall exhaust tube will come loose..
Rattling will be heard loudest in the area of clamp mounting to head and along bend..

Unfortunately I can't really tell where the noise is coming from. I've tried kicking both exhausts at the first bend and can't notice any noise.


I noticed today that what I think is the evap. cannister was totally loose, so it was sitting on the swingarm. I put it back onto it's tab. Here's hoping!

I think that may have been the culprit, last two rides have been lawnmower quiet.
