The answer is yes, and no... provided if you replace the stock mufflers with replacements that provide the same amount of backpressure, there should be no problems. However, if the replacements do not provide enoughbackpressure, or too much, the bike's spark computer may need a software upgrade in oder to compensate.

Cheers, Jay

Change the stock mufflers need to know size to buy

Unless you have modified the engine in your new car and thereby voided the warranties, the existing exhaust system is adequately sized. If you want louder mufflers you should be able to replace those safely without endangering your warranty coverage, but read the fine print in your 3/36 bumper to bumper and 5/50 power-train warranties. Anything behind the catalytic converters is generally fair game (cat-back conversion) but again read your warranties. I have about 17 months left on the power-train warrantee on my 2010 Challenger before I will even think about any modifications.

Would after market slip on exhaust affect engine compression of zx10r? What is the best after market exhaust slip oni can to use that would have no effect at all on the power of the zx10r? Are there any...

As long as you get a muffler that is comparable to a stock muffler then it will have no effect on the performance. Most aftermarket companies make stock mufflers that would fit your bike though it would likely be cheaper to just replace them with stock kawasaki pipes.
As to replacing them, using an impact wrench will make removal easier and be sure to use a new clamp even if the old one looks good

How do I remove the baffles on my 2011 Harley 883L?

Don't, If you want to improve the sound and performance, buy a pair of "slip on" free flowing mufflers. Cycle Shack, Vance & Hines, and many others make the mufllers. You never know when you're going to have to have a pair of "stock" mufflers and they are expensive.

Good luck

I have a 2010 harley 1200 custom sporster,if i put different slip -on mufflers on would hurt the engine if i don't change anything else

If you replace with street legal mufflers then it is unlikely that you will have to make any other changes !
Go by the silencer manufacturers recommendation

Cant find o2 sensor looking for upstream bank 1 any one want to help?

It should be located near the outlet in the rear exhaust manifold, ahead of the converter. The downstream sensor 2 is the one located behind the converter or sometimes in the rear of the converter body.

A few weeks ago i installed a air intake and flowmaster muffler on my 99 jeep cherokee. after i took the stock muffler off i realized i needed some wire for my welder so i drove the jeep without a muffler...

My first question would be, "did you disconnect the battery before welding the exhaust?" This could fry the ECU. What codes are you retrieving now?

I took off the plate rester off the stock muffler on my 1994 750c vfour honda magna. my question is it backfires when i slow down. It sound good is why i removed them well this increas horsepower a little...

The backfiring won't harm anything, it is just annoying. You can reduce the backfiring on deceleration to a minimum - or maybe eliminate it completely - by having the carburetors synchronized.

To be safe, you are probably going to be better off in the long run if you put the arrestor plates back in. Not just from a noise level concern but also because this modification may cause your allready lean-running engine to run even leaner. This can cause driveability problems in cold weather and perhaps a slight reduction in engine life.

If i remove the factory slip on mufflers will it hurt anything

The Victorys are all direct injected since inception. there are no carbs to worry about. Slip ons should not affect performance since the header pipes are the same flow. Using a free flowing intake and exhaust will greatly improve performance from stock but will need the computer "flashed" with the appropriate fuel map. These flashes can be done by dealers and performance shops that work on Victory and will be included with many of the intake or exhaust sytems such as Lloydz and S&S.

Is$175.00 for one flowmaster super 44 series muffler too much?

Heres the bottom line...My dad used to tell me that nothing is worth more than you are wiling to pay for it.
What you now have is a mix of unmatched components that sound nice, and possibly may give you a one or two mpg increase. However, a good exhaust system is carefully engineered to take advantage of sonic as well as physical, laws that influence the way both sound and air (exhaust) behave in certain diameter pipes, when traveling at pre-determined speeds.
Most stock exhaust is far from that, rather, it is the cheapest easiest means to permit exhaust to escape from the engine while making the least amount of noise, while keeping the converter operating. Therefore anything you do to lower pressure will give you somewhat of a performance gain. In using a part of the stock system, you cancel some of that gain by creating another restriction. I'd be satisfied with what you have but would be concerned about passing a state inspection. If you want to learn more about exhaust and how it influences your engine there are many good books you can read on this subject. (I know that because I probably read them all as a pro racer).
Good luck with your Jeep!!!
