Question regarding Bolt-on Exhausts

I was thinking of getting a new can for my 929. I really donít care much for more power gain just looks and sound. I really do hate the huge stock muffler and wanted something that has better aesthetics. I do have some questions regarding bolt on models. Do I have to purchase a 929 model pipe or can I get a 900RR or 954 model exhaust, bolt on only? I'm either going to get a Muzzy or a Yoshi, both have been offered to me at a good price, which is better sounding. The yoshi is an RS-3 Carbon Fiber bolt-on made to fit a 99 900rr and the muzzy is made to fit the 929 but wasnít sure of the sound/quality. My old bike had a yoshi on it and I did like it but that was a long time ago. I donít recall hearing a muzzy on a 929. One other thing If I choose to put a bolt on exhaust do I need a power commander? I donít want to damage my bike in any way and I know that your suppose to add one if you put a full system on, so what about a bolt on?

Re: Question regarding Bolt-on Exhausts

Search. Lots of good intel here on the board.

The quick answer(s) are, no, you don't need a Power Commander for a S/O. Your 929 will run and sound just fine. I know a 900RR exhaust is not a direct bolt-on for your bike, but I've always understood 954/929 cans to interchange.

Re: Question regarding Bolt-on Exhausts

Thanks for the info. I can now save a few hundred bucks by not purchasing a PCIII.

So the 900 muffer has a different bolt pattern or different pipe diameter which inhibits it from fitting the 929? I thought they all had 3 pattern bolts.

They may all be 3 pattern, but the diameter of the pipe may be different.

Re: Question regarding Bolt-on Exhausts

do some searching on ebay for a 929/954 bolt on. maybe PM Hoagie and ask if he still has that TwoBrothers can for sale. the tip is scraped but I think thats all that wrong with it. and they sound nice on a 929.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Question regarding Bolt-on Exhausts

The 900 and 954 exhaust flanges look the same. 3 bolt, triangular. But my buddy's 954 flange looked a little larger than my 900's. Never measured or did a side-by-side comparison, just eyeballed it.

Maybe you could pick up a beaten up stock pipe from a local salvage yard off a 900 and check it out. Or just ride the bike there, pop off the stock can, and see if a 900 can will mount.

$90 is a decent deal, and worth looking into. I got my slip-on for $62 though.

"muzzy is made to fit the 929 but wasnít sure of the sound/quality"
I can't comment on the quality of muzzy pipes, and i know they make different models, but my buddy has one on his 900 and the sound is very good, IMO. Nice deep growl to it.
