1982 GL 1100
The right muffler fell off, so I need another set. I like the idea of using clamp on pipes, but do I need the crossover connecting the two sides? I thought that this was needed to balance the system.
cheers,

cross over pipe---no you can get by with out it. a lot of guys have installed Harley mufflertake offs and don't use a cross over pipe with no ill effects.

My aftermarket pipes had a crossover. I cut it off and welded the holes shut. Can't tell any diffeence. Makes removing a single muffler so easy.

The only issue that I could see with that is if there were a difference in the mufflers internally causing more backpressure in one and not the other. But that's only a very very small chance of happening so I say go for it. It won't hurt. :)

Hi Chriso,



I put clamp on mufflers on my gal as well. I was going to do a crossover but decided it was not worth the effort. I certainly don't regret it at all. I have had Zero issues.



Here is what I did....
