Not the prettiest, this is a close up image too and dirty from sitting outside but this spot was totally open before I started.

After having done this I wouldn't hesitate to open up one that had rattling inside.

Also if it comes down to it others have cut the 1100 muffs off at the end of the collector.
They say there is a pipe similar to the 1000 headers inside so you could clamp or weld on different muffs if wanted.

Dan, do you still have the step by step photos of this repair or was that only in the Pre-crash thread?

ok for all those that have been following my thing backfire here is the final update. drained the fuel system and tank and found lots of water in the system. put in new fuel and seafoam and new spark plugs. also synced carbs and found the adjuster for setting the left bank with the right had the nut loose and almost off, got carb synced and it is running like a goldwing again. i want to thank all those that have helped me with this project and gave me good advice. need to ride it a little more than i do and will take care of that as well.
