Hi All,

Would like to know if the mount attached to the SWing muffler goes to the inside or the outside of the attaching mount on the bike. Mine's on the outside but makes the unit look a bit "cocked" off of vertical center. Just my imagination?? Thanks in advance.

Not your imagination DickO.
And yes it can make It look a bit off.
You can try it on the inside, or try and bend the headers so the muffler sits at the right angle.
Its just a quirk of the wing.
I solved the problem by going with the Leo Vince exhaust.

The Silverwing I bought with 51 miles on it has the mount to the inside of the attaching mount. The Silverwing I bought with around 3,500 miles on it has the mount to the inside of the attaching mount also. I wouldn't think ether one have had the muffler off yet.

Thanks guys... guess I'll get it moved to the inside. Believe it'll look better that way.

When I got my 2004 with 16k it had the muffler on the outside and I was certain it was wrong. It took about 10 mins to change it to the inside and I think it looks much better!

It mounts to the inside. If you have had a tire change somewhere along the way, they probably just mounted it wrong. It happened to me once so it can happen.
