    The "parts bike" I have came with a muffler from an R6. Nice sound but not Forest Service approved. I scored a new muffler and exhaust pipe for real cheap and decided to put them on the bike. Long story short it didn't quite fit. What I did was take a good sized fender washer, cut a slot in it, drilled a couple of holes, used other washers for spacers, and bolted it together. Perhaps I should have trimmed the washer a little more but no harm leaving the extra metal there.



    I think the pictures can show what I did far better than I can explain it. Looks a little mickey mouse but it works.







    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    Tony,



    Works for me, and probably didn't even involve a trip to the hardware store!

    How trashed is the R6 muffler?



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    When I bought the bike I was told the muffler was from an R6. I have no reason to doubt him but one never knows.



    If you are looking for an R6 muffler for an R6 this one won't bolt on -- the inlet pipe has been modified for the TW.



    The mount on the muffler top uses one of the bolts that bolts the rear sub frame to the main frame. A longer bolt with large washers are needed. There is no middle mount.



    Overall I think for a TW the muffler is decent.

    Picture of muffler on garage floor. Welds pointed out. Blue melted plastic on leading edge of muffler.

    I didn't know there is a difference in mufflers for early and late TW's. When did they change?



    Edit: Never mind. I see that the change was in '03.
