So I definitely want to change the muffler on my bike. I want a littke more sound and would like to get rid of both the weight and heat that the stock muffler comes with.

I really don't want to spend the mucho casho for one of the ones specifically designed for the wing. I have been looking and it seems like most any universal sport bike muffler would fit fine with the single band clamp they come with. The only problem is they all seem to be designed to connect using the spring thing method.

Has anyone adapted a universal to theirs? I'm sure there has to be some sort of adapter to go from the clampy method to the springy method.

Thanks!

First question is---Why? Stock/standard SilverWing works just fine and can last a long time. Get some riding time/miles before you make changes to now discontinued scooter that worked fine out of the box.

John,
Kenny's out-the-BOX had many engine pieces. He may have an evap canister for you. Joking!

Kenny,
I'm very impressed in following your posts on engine swap. You had your Swing stripped down to the bones and back running in with a swapped engine and drive in under a week. Very impressive. Ride safe. Maybe fab a muffler. Good luck.

Yeah I have been looking and I think I can put together an adapter that will be able to clamp on the oem pipe and have a standard slip on on the other. Should allow me to get a good name brand muffler for under $100. I want to make sure I can return it to stock if I ever sell it.

After all you've accomplished with the scoot I don't know why you don't just weld on a coulpe of tabs, or small nuts, on the header pipe to accept the mount springs for a crock-rocket muffler.

However, IMHO, given that a CVT doesn't "shift", switching the muffler to a free-flow system is going to end up sounding pretty much like fart can.

Then, of course once you've relieved all that back pressure, the engine will be running pretty lean and you'll be needing a Power Commander to correct for that lean burn.

Kenny can you modify the OEM muffler by removing some of the baffles or drilling a few holes in them to get the sound you are looking for?

I'm sure I could but I really don't want to modify the stock muffler. I'm guessing the primary demographic for big scoots probably wouldn't appreciate a hacked muffler.

Plus modification doesn't really address the weight or heat concerns.

Ive ordered some builder bits a am just going to weld up an adapter.

Sure that makes sense. My solution was to swap the OEM for the Leo Vince 4Road. It cost a bit, but I like the sound and added hp.

Yeah I get that for sure. I just don't have a lot of money into mine and can't justify the expense.
