Reply to #647

I bought a set of stainles mufflers like those on this bike from Armors in England. The quality is high, the price is good, and the sound is quiet but healthy. Couldn't ask for more.

Yes, a single fuse is all you get, 20 amp I believe. Are those Dunstall replica mufflers on that bike? They look like the ones I have on mine, to me they fit the style of the bike very well.

Go to the nearest NAPA store and buy part no. OP6065. Fits and works perfect on my /6's so should work on a /7. Oh and its cheaper! I think they were used on old VW's.
