I told myself if I sold mustang I would put a small exhaust on my Scion. lol. Along while ago friend had a spare beat up muffler sounded good on his car so we chopped my stock muffler out and tossed it in there.

It looked like poop and leaked awful. But it actually sounded
good, it was a free project. Problem was you could clearly see it from behind. Ick. I used jb weld putty to seal a gaping crack in muffler and everything. Was fun - boredom back then.

but out with the old.- my dealership was able to cope me one for 350. It was in warehouse, but it’s listed like 650-700. Ridiculous., but I will say the fit and finish was extremely nice. 304 stainless, perfect welds and all.

here’s little video. I don’t think it’s bad like Honda fart cans. Quiet at cruise.

Ive had my sportster for 6 years now since I built it. I have never enjoyed this little guy on the highway, I hated it actually. Zero protection from wind, blowing me everywhere. Backroads/town hops it was a hoot. I saw a windshield on revvzilla open box for 100 bucks, figure I would give it a shot. Keep in mind, I dont think the windshield looks "awesome" but I dont think it looks terrible either. Long story short, I RODE FOR HOURS and it was a BLAST. easily a 60-70% wind reduction, my shirt is barely moving at my neck, still get wind but now it feels like im a serious reduction and enjoyable now.

When my mother gave me the sportster, she gave me a large HD detachable windshield, it was large and the wind blew straight into my face and hated it.

I'll take function over form any day.

anyway here's the little windshield. opinions on it looks wise?

Biggest improvement I've found on the Harley was ear plugs. Probably too late to save my ears. That wind noise is awful on the road.
