Modding the Commander / LT exhaust

Hey,

Has anyone here modified the stock Commander / LT mufflers?

I'm thinking about drilling up the centre... was wondering if anyone has already had a go at them.

Keep us posted, I am shopping for new Tbird this year. and am leaning toward the commander, but the lack of exhaust options has me thinking perhaps a 1600 Bird instead.

Hi, I have the comander with TOR's fitted, they sound nice but not that loud. I started the bike at the dealer without pipes on at all, also not that loud. Reason for this is the new CAT System which has 2 cats,1 in each header. I'm trying to find a replacement header but no luck so far. If anyone has info please let me know.

Remus makes a whole system for the LT, it's not cheap, but it is a whole system.

I checked their site and they only had $1600.00 slip-ons. Did I miss it?

Perhaps I misunderstood. I thought the 1600 bucks was for the pipes too.

Wow 1600 bucks for slip ons, crazy. I just assumed it was the whole system cuz of the price and cuz they use the term system.

Has anyone checked to see if you can fit the head pipes from a 2010-2013 model so as to avoid having the cats?

I'm also interested to see what turns up with this topic. Just brought home my Commander today and I'm already craving a new exhaust. Had Specialty Spares on my America and they were perfect IMO.
