CVO Muffler Tips ????
« on: February 03, 2012, 10:55:43 AM »

Pulled the BUB 7's off and replaced them with the stock muff's that came with the bike (FLHTCUSE4) Did the 2" fullsac baffle trick.  Like the sound much  better,  can't tell a real big difference, Sound is good and really wanted to get to the looks of a 4" can.   Just would now like to change the tips to slant up or down.  I have searched this site pretty hard and have determined that this is a hopeless idea.  Seems that there should be some tips somewhere that would fit these stock CVO 4" mufflers.  Any Ideas appreciated Guys.

Jimmy,

I have the stock 4" CVO '09 SERG mufflers with the Fullsac 2" baffles AND the Fullsac stainless tapered muffler tips.







There are a few pictures of the Fullsac 4" polished stainless steel tips.

The only issue, and it's very picky on my part, but if a company were going to offer a product for a very specific application like Harley baggers, I would think that they would have made the angle on the taper better match the downward rear taper of the bags.  The tips have just a bit less angle than the bags.  No one has ever said anything about it, but it would look better in my opinion if they matched.

The tips can be installed with the tape as in my pictures or flipped over so they slash downward instead.

Hope this has helped you out.

Dan,

Would you have an idea where I could get some of these tips.  I see that they are no longer sold at Fullsac.

SE66, sorry to  :jack:. but what baffles did you have in your 7's. Regular or stealth. I had regular and thought they were too loud, then I modded my stock muffler baffles and thought it sounded to tinny or hollow. So I bought stealth baffles for the 7's and love the sound. I do like the big can look of the stockers though. I just don't know how much better they would sound if I invested in full sac baffles vs the chop job I did with stock? How would you compare the sound from your 7's?  On another note my 7 end caps started to peel a little like others have and I don't wanna waste $100 on new end caps when I could maybe try professionally made baffles on my stock muffs which appearance-wise are still mint.

Pete,

I can honestly say that I was surprised at the sound when I did the 2" Fullsac cores.  They are a little quieter at idle than the BUB 7"s, not a lot,  but running down the road at various other speeds,  I can't really tell a lot of difference,  maybe a little quieter,  but they have a great sound,  I am very pleased, and love the look of the 4' stock cans.  I will not put the BUB's back on because the difference in the sound is just a little less than the BUB's but not much.  And I do have the regular bafles in the BUB 7's.  I am running the V&H Power Duals and that probably helps with the sound,  NO CAT.

I don't ride a CVO.  I thought the mufflers you guys have take any of the 4" end caps available through H-D or http://epiflex.com/chrometips.html to name a couple.

HD has slash chrome tips in their P&A catalog for 4" mufflers, but I was told that they would not fit CVO muflers.

There may be others like what Glen suggested.

Didn't know Fullsac quit selling the ones I have.

Aren't the CVO mufflers
... I was told that they would not fit CVO muflers.

I can neither confirm nor deny that but it sounds implausible to me.  It would be easy enough to see by removing one of your stock endcaps, taking it to the local dealer and comparing it to one of the others they have in stock.

i wanted to keep the stock lood as well.. the stock 4" cans look best to me and always did.   I was thinking about the 1.75" cores from Fullsac, but was talked into the 2" by Steve and a few others..  I'm surprised how good they sound, and not too loud at all...  I think my Bub 7 Stealth may even be louder. I'm glad I went with Fullsac. :2vrolijk_21:

The SE tips work fine just requires a set of Fishtail or turn down adapters to fit.

Look at the HD web site under exhaust and you'll see they have brand new black tips with the screamin eagle logo. I can't help with the slash cuts but thought you might like to know about them. I have 2 on order but haven't seen them yet.
