Recently purchased a 2005 V rod with Stage 1 upgrade that has a dent in the exhaust. If I cannot get the dent removed I would like to replace the slip on, but need to know what is on the bike.
Thanks for the informtion.Here is what the inside looks like:They are the stock exhausts. They do look like they may have been v-modded. Hard to see with the end caps fitted. If it is quite loud with a very deep throaty sound then yes they have been. If it sounds like a sewing machine, then they are completely stock!
Thanks for the info. So it looks like I won’t be able to replace that pipe since they are stock. Hopefully I will be able to find someone who can remove that dent then. I’ll take it to a painless dent removal place and see what they think.They have been "V-Modded", the internal baffle cores removed.
I'm headed to a PDR place in about an hour and they are going to take pictures to send to their chrome specialist and then get back with me. I will continue to update this thread. Will also check out ebay and see what is out there. The finish on the exhaust on my bike is perfect, so hoping they can pop the dent out.Didn't notice the dent till you pointed it out. You can check ebay for V-Rod stock exhaust. A good many of them that pop up have already been modded as you have. You may have to drill holes for the end caps but the basic core removal will have been done. I'd be curious though to see how the dent removal effort goes. These are thicker than most body panels so it may prove more difficult.
I just got off the phone with a local Harley dealership and they looked up the kit and said it’s no longer available, so he told me just to go to a hardware store and find an approximate diameter of rivets and he said they could use their rivet gun and mount the end cap on for me.You only need the rivets. The rest is BS!
