That was my thought, exactly.

Trouble with ebay ?
I've needed a part, didn't see it on ebay, bought it new.
Two months later there it is, for almost nothing. Oh well..l
Recyclers ?
I'd do a search on Ebay and Amazon for anyone selling anything for your bike,
making a list to establish a search of most likely places.
Call them all up.
For example, I'd call a company that has Triumph engines/parts or looks like they have lots of stuff up for sale for any bike..they all buy wrecks.
Big places list lots for sale but no yard can possibly list everything.
They put stuff up they think may sell quick but also to draw attention to themselves in general. Hoping you will call them.
They may very have what you need but will never list it on the internet.
You could also get the diameter of my pipe, the length and distance of mounting from the joint and see if it matches any other bikes. An aftermarket source may be able to tell you what is interchangeable...Just trying to help. It would be nice to find the stock part used especially when you tune it.

Ah, that's exactly what I was thinking. I guess I'll just keep an eye out.

Question mounting

12340987, What sort of muffler are you after, a Triumph off road or the stock one? By the way, the reason your muffler is so close to the tire is because the bracket is on the wrong side of the pillion foot peg mount.

lol, I thought that was by design. TY for that. I was looking at it and thought, 'man, these newer bikes are getting built tight.'

I want something quieter than a straight through pipe, which is essentially what it is now. I'm not sure what the off road sounds like to begin with, but I'm sure I'd be happier with it, especially since I can't seem to get mine apart without ruining it.
