$33.12 plus shipping.
Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx I checked and Babbits has them in stock.

This is what's called an oxymoron. Because with straight pipes there is no muffler! Haha. Sorta like Jumbo Shrimp.
But the cause of your popping sound is because of afterburn in the exhaust system. With no back pressure because of the straight pipes, some of your engines' combustion is happening in the exhaust. That is a super way to burn a valve BTW.

I have a maxim x 750. If it's similar, then look for a seat lock on the right side (facing forwards). I thought it was the helmet lock but that is on the left side of the bike. Once you unlock the seat lock the seat pops right off.
